Snorkeling in Makena

Yesterday my friend Teresa from Oregon “kidnapped” me and took me to Makena for some snorkeling.  Makena is amazing!  This snorkel spot is known as “Dumps” and it’s also a popular surfing spot during south swells.  I was reminded of what a wonderful place this is for snorkeling and just plain relaxing.  There were plenty of Tangs and Hawaiian Damsel fish!  The latter is one of my most favorite fishes to watch.  I also followed two big colorful fish and watched a big beautiful  Parrotfish eating parts off the coral!  It is, hands down, one of the best places to snorkel!  Some of the coral is huge too!  I’ve never been so glad to have been kidnapped……ahhhhh Makena!
