Relaxing with Crush in Maui
November 12, 2016 • Leave a Comment
Whoaa man we totally spent some quality time hanging out with the turtles in Maui this spring. These dudes rocked! And they were big too. It took awhile for the kids to warm up to them. I guess they were little intimidated at first.
This was my daughters first encounter with Hawaiian sea turtles. Righteous! Clear blue water and no waves this week helped to keep everything calm and relaxing. The humpbacks were in town too. We could hear them on our dives in Lanai and Molokai.
I took my son Michael diving on his 16th birthday to see the Cathedrals in Lanai. Too bad he ate ribs for breakfast but it helped to encourage the wildlife below. Lahaina Divers did a great job with these trips. Once a week they schedule a trip to Molokai to see hammerhead sharks. The dive is for advanced divers and requires a "live" drop off at the site.
There were 3 scalloped hammerheads that day but they were quite shy and didn't approach the divers. I wasn't able to get many pictures but it was still great to see them from about 40-50 feet away.
