Snorkel to the turtles in Ho'ai Bay

We can meet in the parking in front of Prince Kuhio Park.

This is, of course, subject to the forecast changing.  Cross your fingers.  Watch:

... I like the wave energy to be under 100Kj to make the journey less strenuous.

If it looks too rough, we can do Beach House Beach instead... no turtles, but plenty of fish, and a more protective reef.

Bring, fins/mask/snorkel, and wear something that can get wet!  Sunscreen.  Waterproof Camera optional (make sure I start my video rolling this time).  Fins with an open back and water socks are preferred, as the entry is rocky.  It's best to put the fins on once you're out in the sand... but it's not necessary: just a matter of how ridiculous one looks entering the water.  Make sure the water socks fit in the fins, and that you can strap-on the fins over the booties easily, with your eyes closed.

    Aloha. Great host? Great snotkeling, turtles Awesome. I apologize to my mom & guest who o told to f off when it felt like to me he turned the ending on his views that i thought (and still do) were totally inapproprIate. Felt like hardcore political poditioning trying to talk trash about someone
    who wasn't even there.to defend themselves. How about a meetup to talk trash about other members with the intention of letting the past go & move on. As a therapist that helps people to change & improves communicarion instead of staying stuck in negative judgement which research shows causes illness.

      It was great having you. A much clearer day than yesterday. Sorry the subject degraded; we do need this resolved amicably, your suggestion for a meetup is good.

      I must have missed a doozie of a discussion Janette didn't attend this meetup event - but probably meant to post this comment regarding Wednesday's snorkeling event, which I didn't attend.

    Mahalo Chris! It was bit murky, but totally worth it. Wish I could go again tomorrow. Post pictures please.

    Sorry to give you grief with my unusual panic attack out in the deep water. Guess it was due to my mask leaking so much on the way out and my nose was underwater, even though the snorkel was working fine. A mind thing I couldn't shake until halfway through. I was fine once I got a good seal and calmed my breathing. All was good for the last half of the adventure. Except that I got a bit banged up getting out of the water too, jammed my foot, small cuts on my knee and hand. Not my best experience there at Hoai Bay, after having such great ones there before, but tomorrow should be better for those who go.

    Approx. how long from start to finish? Looking forward!

    October 23, 2013

    • Chris

      Less than an hour. It depends on how long before we get started.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
