August 29, 2005: After the two previous trips were cancelled, 47 divers were treated to a successful trip to the ocean-side reef near Bigej Island (map). Though widely scattered showers were the rule for the day, the seas were calm and underwater visibility approached 100 feet. Each diver was able to do two dives at up to one-hour each. The trip was organized by the Kwajalein SCUBA Club (link).

It was neat to see air bubbles from so many divers at once.
