Under the Sea // Island Hopping Dive Trip

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

{I'm just keepin it Japanese}
{Tonna! the best captain we've had yet out here!! loved him.}
Scuba diving has taken our love for the ocean to a new level. 
I really do feel like a mermaid down there swimming + breathing in deep turquoise water! 
Saturday we spent the whole day cruising between islands off the western coast of Oki {there's over 100 total!} to different dive spots. It was such a blast and beautiful day out at sea. 
Oh we are so blessed and thankful to live here. 
To Cam's great disappointment though, we didn't see any sharks, but I have a feeling we're going to run into them one of these days... thus making my husband's life complete. I imagine he will beam with happiness and I will likely cry underwater and beg it to please not eat us. {Sharks don't like chocolate and that has to be exactly what I taste like. So atleast I have that going for me.}

  2. What beautiful pictures! I don't know if I could ever scuba dive...I would be too paranoid about the bends...or sharks! Fingers crossed that you guys don't run into any! :)

  4. I have tried to scuba several times and I always end up chickening out. Which stinks as I love the water and I am sure it would be amazing.

  11. Sharks? I would totally pee my wet suit. I hate them! I mean, I'm terrified of them. My dad used to have a few and they always gave me nightmares.

    Gorgeous photos, as per usual.

    1. I love your "I'm just keeping it Japanese" with the peace sign. Soooooooo true and funny.

    2. Let's be honest, in addition to chocolate you probably taste like olive oil, cheese, and wine -- which I hear is Mr. Fin's favorite combo... so be careful!

    3. When you jump off the side of the boat please tell me you yell "CANNONBALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    love, lanneybear

  13. was it hard to get used to breathing under water? i'm terrified of sharks that i don't think i would ever be able to scuba dive. i went snorkling once in punta cana and rather than looking at all the beauty under water, i was on the lookout for sharks! if you ever spot one, have Cam punch it in between the eyes. i hear that scares them away!

  14. Oh my word - what beautiful photos and this makes me want to go get my scuba certification ASAP! I just would not want to see the sharks either:)

  15. me and Cam have a LOT in common then - every single dive we take I pray for sharks and every single dive we take my husband prays that doesn't come true.
    I knew you would fall in love w/SCUBA diving...we sure did! It is one of the most relaxing things I do...they call me the turtle whisperer...because sea turtles always find me and swim with me...and I guess normally they don't do that! Love the pics girl!

  16. My husband wanted to go scuba diving when we were in Hawaii, but I was scared :(

    Maybe after seeing your pictures, I will be motivated to do it next time :)

  17. So this is probably weird and I'm not sure how things goes with blog etiquette, but I stumbled onto your blog while googling Zakimi Castle, and now I've been sitting here for 20 minutes reading about all of your adventure. I've lived in Okinawa for 2 years, and have never seen it more beautiful than through your camera lens. It makes me want to be a better adventurer, and shutterbug, and I most certainly appreciate this island more. So thank you for being in blogland and being totally inspiring!

    I can't help it! You have great taste!

  19. Hi Amanda! I just stumbled across your blog while looking up info about Ie island. So happy that I did, looks like we arrived on the island around the same time as you guys -- right before Typhoon Muifa! We also have a blog about our life in Okinawa - www.ericandashleyjapan.com. Anyway, I'm a new follower and huge fan of your beautiful photos and the amazing attitude you have of living in Oki! Very inspirational!

  20. ummm i LOVE the "keeping it japanese" picture.. because i like to keep it japanese in mostly ALL my pictures (and i've never been there or have any ties there.. i'm just THAT hip/cool)

    but how fun- you guys must be living it UP under the sea.. under the sea..
