Absolutely amazing views.    Easy to see why that would be a favorite spot for divers or snorkelers.

Beautiful underwater shots. The clarity of the water is just amazing.  What archaelogical period are those ruins?

Thanks very much, Captain Bleriot53.  The site is from the time of King Kamehameha who ruled in the 1800s. I'm sure it comes from a time earlier than that but there is no written Hawaiian history from the time before Captain Cook discovered the islands.

Thanks very much, Captain Montfrooij.  For the underwater shots, I used a GoPro mounted inside a Telesin dome.  I found that without the dome the area away from the direct center looked radially smeared and had chromatic aberrations.

Oh wow, sounds kinda counter productive to add more glass.

I'm curious how that helps the image quality.
