Beaches in MAUI are open for fun as of 5/16/20. Commercial business in the ocean has not been cleared , yet. But, hopefully this is a fin kick in the right direction.
We have been diving a lot at the Hyatt Reef (Canoe Beach – Hanakao’o Beach) lately, due to the current shoreline erosion at our reef in front of our resort, KBC. I noticed this Frogfish on my second dive of the day, and then was lucky enough to find it again on my Night Dive. “Let’s Get Tanked..!!”
So, we were diving at Hanakao’o Beach and had a Hawaiian Hawksbill Sea Turtle swim through our group. We come to discover that is a Hawksbill that hasn’t been catalogued yet. The Hawaiian Hawksbill are protected here in Hawaiian waters and research/data collected daily. We got to name this Hawksbill, so of course we chose BUBBLES !
Let us know if you see her out there … “Let’s Get Tanked..!!”
Aloha ! It’s that time again for our quarterly highway cleanup. We’ll be meeting in the parking lot of Airport Beach at 8:00AM. Look for the Tiny Bubbles Scuba white Van. TBS will provide : Trash Bags, Gloves, T-shirts/Vests, and Drinking Water from Tropic Water. Bright colored clothes and closed toe shoes recommended.
After the cleanup, Tiny Bubbles Scuba would like to take everybody out for breakfast to Castaways Cafe.
Meet “Sandy”, an amazing Spotted Eagle Ray who has been hanging out at Airport Beach on a regular basis for the last month or so. She has gotten her name “Sandy” due to always having just a bit of sand on her topside. She displays a “not-worried” behavior to Scuba divers… so if approached slowly, you’re in for a real treat of an experience.
We’ve been seeing this lil creature cruising the sand patch at Honokowai Beach the last couple of days. Definitely one of the larger species of Nudibranch, cruising at 8″ in length. AWESOME !! The Clumpy Nudibranch ( Asteronotus Cespitosus )
