Spectacular Day!

Swimming in clear water

Swimming in clear water

It was a spectacular day!  Just a bit of a breeze blowing from the south, enough to keep me cool.  It was 9:30 a.m. by the time I got out but it was such a nice day I decided to head for the boat ramp.  Paddling conditions were ideal!  My first turtle popped up as I passed Kam III……then there were twenty more turtles at the boat ramp!  Today the  water was so glassy and perfect.  Yesterday’s paddling was a chore in the wind and chop but I paddled for an hour.  There were so many turtles popping up and diving and swimming under me…..and the water was so clear!  Even the red pontoon snorkel boat came in while I was there and still the turtles came.  At one point I was sitting with a line of three turtles floating in front of me…….then twice I had several turtles surrounding me while I tried to get photos!  I knew it was getting late, but I just couldn’t leave all the turtles!IMG_5108 Even Bumpy was there being friendly as usual!  At least the snorkel boat is now having one of their crew get in the water with the snorkelers and telling them not to chase or harass the turtles.  I think it is making a difference!  I stayed quite a while there enjoying the turtles and the perfect conditions and enjoyed nice conditions on the way back too.  Just as I was coming in from paddling, some friends that are visiting from Oregon snatched me up to go snorkeling in Makena!  What a treat!  So many colorful fish there and I followed a big Parrot fish around the reef.  What a great spot to swim and snorkel!  And what a spectacularly beautiful day on Maui!

Great Makena snorkeling spot!
