A rare sighting in Hawaii, these eels are nocturnal hunters, they rest in caverns and under ledges during the day.

Provided Caption: There is nothing more satisfying than rolling up on something that makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck underwater. That rush of adrenaline and special feeling of experiencing something so intimate is intrinsic to scuba diving in my mind. Shooting the ghostly image of the Ex USS Kittiwake certainly made me feel both excited an uneasy at the same time.
