I needed a break from the madness

I  love thinking about swimming with the turtles. The cares of the world wash away...so to speak! HA!

  1. Honokeana Cove/Napili Point on Maui has a lot of those:

    1. VERY cool. There must have been five or six turtles in that video. We've swum with as many as six, but no all at once like that. A couple here and a couple there, during a snorkeling dive over a period of a couple of hours.

      That was VERY cool. You must stay up on the northwest side. We are always down on the southwest tip, by Makena. Where the shark attacked that woman. We were on the island when the attack happened and everyone was talking about a tiger in the local waters off the beaches at Makena and southward. Last year the same thing-sightings of a tiger but no attack. Maybe we should move north!??! YIKES!!!

  2. Makena means you are close to La Perouse and Five Caves/Five Graves! We're usually up at Napili Bay (close to Honolua Bay), this is around the corner. There were seven or eight turtles just washing around in a shallow tidal bowl chewing on seaweed.

    1. Yes, La Perouse is just a short drive around the southern tip. We were going to go there this time because a local told us that if you get there before 7 am, the dolphins are ALWAYS in feeding and you can swim with them. He said that by 8 am, they left and go out into deeper waters. But then we heard about the tiger roaming the shores down there and decided not to.

      However, we swam every day at Molokini and around Makena. So we weren't THAT worried, but probably should have been. HAHAHA! Better to be lucky than good!

  3. Maybe we need to find a nice but cheap condo down there like the Aloha Condos one we stay at in Napili. Last time we bought a crock-pot at WalMart and saved $1000 *not* eating-out...
