Rec Diving Founders Linda and Mike Kohut, current Rec Diving Instructor Barb Diefenbaker, and former Rec Diving Instructors Russel Probst and Garth Louis were all diving together in Palau the first week of February aboard the Rock Island Aggressor. They were joined by friends, old and new, for a week of diving the beautiful waters of Palau.
As far as Caribbean diving and snorkeling goes, it doesn’t get much better than Bonaire. Dive, dive, snorkel, dive, dive…ahhhh…what a GREAT way to spend Thanksgiving week. Here are some of this year’s highlights underwater and topside!
Walt, Pat and Lori spied this octopus on our night dive AND got up close and personal with this puffer fish. So much life right off our “house” reef! The photo ops were incredible. Thanks for sharing these great shots, Pat!
Congratulations to wife and husband buddy team Pat Herrel and Walt Ohrbom who logged their 400th dive together on the trip. Rec Diving instructor Barb Diefenbaker celebrated her 600th dive and brought the “turkey” on Thanksgiving!
John Schinella celebrated 500 dives in Bonaire AND became an honorary Ambassador to the island for his 14 trips with Rec Diving! John has enjoyed some of the best diving in the world with us, but Bonaire remains one of his favorites.
Thanks to everyone who made this trip extra special. Stay tuned for more amazing underwater images and video from Bonaire, here on the blog and on social media. And if you missed it, there’s always next year. We’re taking reservations for Thanksgiving 2016 and we’d love to have you join us!
