Sailing and Sea Turtles

We joined the crew of the Alii Nui (Hawaiian ruling chiefs) for a snorkel sailing adventure and sailed toward a place called Turtle Town.  As soon as the sailing catamaran came to a stop we saw a large sea turtle  swimming at the surface.  We donned our snorkel gear and fins and jumped in.  Almost immediately we saw green sea turtles. They were very big and slowly swam by us – we could follow them until they dove down too deep.  Back on board we enjoyed a delicious lunch of fish, chicken, salad and fresh pineapple along with complimentary wine and beer.  It was a great day!

We then stopped at the Maui Ocean Center which featured numerous displays of exotic fish and sharks. A naturalist taught us how to say the name of the Hawaiian State Fish: “Hunuhununukunukuapua’a”

Next stop Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park
