Scuba Dive & Travel the World – DRENCHED Episode. 1

30 101



Welcome to our first episode of DRENCHED! Seriously, thank you so much for watching. In this episode, we introduce ourselves a little bit, pack up our ridiculous amount of dive and camera gear, then hop on a plane and head over to the oh so beautiful island of Oahu in Hawaii.

Once we arrive we don’t waste any time getting in the water. We go out for a day of diving with Island Divers where we start the day off with a wreck called LCU, short for landing craft utility. The LCU has been underwater for about 20 years and sits in 80 feet of water. It was sunk purposefully to become an artificial reef and create new habitat for sea critters. This dive treats us to some great marine life including tiny nudibranchs, spotted eagle rays, turtles, and some old boots!

Then we hop back on the boat and head over to a site called Sea Caves which is located just around the corner from Oahu’s famous Hanauma Bay. We jump in and swim straight over to a wall where we enter into a lava tube that opens up into a massive underwater cavern. Here we come across tons of awesome critters including more sharks and turtles, devil’s scorpionfish, more nudibranchs, and a wire coral goby just to name a few. This dive blew us away!!!

With our first day of diving complete, we thought it would be fun to hike up to the top of the crater at Diamond Head State Monument. A big outrigger paddle race was about to cross the finish line in Waikiki, and Diamond Head made the perfect lookout point to scope out all the action. After an awesome but exhausting day, we head to the beach by our house for a killer sunset.

If you love scuba, travel, adventure, exploration, conservation, and all things aquatic, we really hope you will follow us on our journey.

Our goal in making these videos is to show the world all the amazing, beautiful, and strange inhabitants of the ocean in the hopes that we will all be inspired to protect it. Don’t miss next weeks episode where we dive some of the best wrecks in Oahu and get into some shenanigans on the streets of downtown Waikiki.

    OH MY GOD! I can tell already that this is going to be something exceptional. Love the photography and your willingness to tell the stories as you go, in detail. By the way you took the long way to the top of Diamond Head. In 1968 there were steel cables hanging from the top down the face. It looks like a different face now so maybe the cable is no longer there. Anyway, Binge you now.

    Nice video! My wife and I have been to Hawaii 3 times. Twice to Oahu (1992 and 2015) and once Maui (2004). We climbed Diamond Head in 45 minutes in 2015 which was not bad for a 52 year old. Went in the AM to beat the heat. Stayed at the Aston on the Beach and the Wolfgang Puck Express there had the BEST wood fired pizza in the world. We travel lots to Sint Maarten and stay on the beach in Simpson Bay and I just love the people there. That is how I found you thru Rick Moore as that was his home base for a while. Keep up the videos and the smiles!!!!!!!!! MM

    LOL @ "tagging me in". Glad to see you start your own channel Nate and Jordan. I liked watching you on "the lady". Hopefully we will cross paths one day and dive together. BTW: Spectacular footage. Are you shooting everything in 4K and down-converting to 1080P? Or, straight 1080P?

  21. Andrew Lewis says

    So glad this channel exists! Will be telling all my dive buddies.

  22. Subjective Reality says
