Hiking Diamond Head and Snorkeling In Waikiki

by Ryan

Since I had some free time I thought I’d show you guys frugality in action via outdoor activities. I spent the early afternoon hiking Diamond Head and snorkeling near Waikiki. Watch the video to see my afternoon that cost me $1.

Beautiful! Both above and below the water!

Ryan – AWESOME idea.

May want to provide a highlights reel (8min is a little long). You could turn this into another series: “Frugality In Action”.

Give us land-locked drones a weekly video of the awesome, free things you are doing. As I sit here snowed in, it really makes me miss FL 🙁

Seemed a little turbid, is that standard water quality? Current did seem strong though.

Side job note. You talk about the conservancy, have you looked into research-based video/photo opportunities?

@ Coach – Yes, and the guy taking on the camera is also quite beautiful as well, haha!

@ Jesse – I’m glad you like it! I just thought it’d be fun to show people some of the stuff I’m doing. That’s a great idea for a series – I like it a lot and see potential.

Water quality in that area isn’t the best, lots of waves breaking off the reef, but still beats Wisconsin!

I really haven’t looked into the job types you mentioned. They’re going to be really competitive and require skill sets that I don’t have, especially on paper. Within the next year I plan on getting better video equipment and building a video portfolio and depending on the whole mobile living thing (dependant on how much I make online) would like to do a diving around the world tour to get more footage and network… Meanwhile it’ll probably be bartending and web development.

How about yourself, how’s your search going?

Ryan, enjoyed the video. My husband and I hiked Diamond Head a few years ago on a vacation to Oahu. It about killed us as we have a few years on you!

We also hiked to some falls (can’t remember the name now) and got caught in the afternoon downpour. Years later we still talk about both so they were not only frugal but memorable.

Cool video! How did you get to film under water? I was like…. “ahhhhhhhhh, oh no! ” then “wow!” when you went under.

Now all ya gotta do is put some Ukelele music in the background, and you’re set!

Haha, that’s quite the reaction! I have an underwater camera and housing for one of my point and shoot cameras. I still don’t have professional gear yet, but that will be one of my big splurges in the next couple years.

Maybe I can team up with and promote a local ukelele player… all about strategy!

Wow, if I had all that marine life on my door step I don’t know if I’d even spend a dollar. (Well, maybe on food – I wouldn’t want to have to EAT the marine life!)

I’m going to look at your article on living in Waikiiki for $1000 a month. Sometimes I think about going on a Monevator World Tour… 😉

Great idea… maybe I should invest in a fishing pole!
