Scuba diving, whether you are a beginner or a professional, is for everyone a challenge. For me it was the most memorable experience of my life. I went on holiday to Oahu, Hawaii with some friends and we wanted to try out scuba diving. We chose the most recommended scuba diving company, Rainbow Scuba and I must say they didn’t fail us.
It is the experience of a lifetime to see the life in the sea with all those tiny colorful fishes and plants and rocks. We swam with sea turtles and found some octopuses that were all the time trying to curl their long, slimy arms around ours. It was a bit scary at first but they didn’t hurt us. The instructor was really friendly and helpful, we were offered snacks and beverages on deck and he even took some pictures of us under water which he sent us through email. We were treated like royalty so it was worth every little penny we put into it.:)

Honolulu History

The bombing of Pearl Harbor by Imperial Japan in 1941 is a must-mention episode in US’s history (as US entered the WWII only after this attack), but it did not affect Honolulu in particular. 1959 saw Hawaii become the 50th State of the USA and Honolulu became the capital of the newly named state.
