Maui shore dive, all the turtles!

Post by Nwbrewer » Mon Nov 11, 2019 5:13 pm

We took a family trip to Maui last month to celebrate my dad's birthday. I managed to sneak away for 1 dive while I was there and did a shore dive in the morning at Mala pier. Since I hadn't planned ahead very well, I just introduced myself to a dive guide at one of the sites we were snorkelling and set up a dive. After chatting a bit, he bumped his other customer for the morning, so it was just the two of us. Had a great 75 minute dive, lots of love Coral, fish and green sea turtles everywhere.

I clipped together some of the video from the dive, if you're ever on Maui, I would highly recommend finding a way to do this dive!

I am here on Maui right now, doing shore snorkeling while the wife does her conference stuff. Have seen a few turtles, a fair number of fish, ate some sand thanks to a couple of larger than expected waves... This is quite an island.
