Merman suggested I make an entry to his site. My favorite thing to do in hawaii is freediving. With the right gear (freedive fins, weight belt, wet suite), a little bit of practice, and good health, it is not too difficult to freedive past 100 ft. All you need is to be able to hold your breath for 1 minute, it only takes that long to go 100 ft down and back up.
There are alot of wrecks to freedive on Oahu, and alot of interesting things to see. The artifical reef in Maunalua bay has alot of random sunken barges, further out is the wreck of the corsair. http://hawaii.gov/dlnr/dar/pubs/ARMaunalua.pdf
Waikiki has two wrecks the YO-257 and the San Pedro. Ala Moana has the Seatiger. All of these wrecks can be swam from shore, its only about a mile swim, just look for the atlantis submarine for the waikiki wrecks, and look for the scuba boats for the seatiger.
Here is my photo album http://www.facebook.com/#!/editalbum.php?aid=179093 and here is my youtube chanel with stuff you might see if you dive in hawaii. http://www.youtube.com/herbdoggy
