  • A Hui Hou Andy Irons

    Winter waves crashing on reef at Larsen's Beach on KauaiAndy Irons died earlier today, November 2, 2010, at the young age of 32. He had just won a major surf competition in Tahiti just a month before. After taking last year off the professional surf circuit, he was making his comeback, and in a big way. Earlier this summer, he spoke about why he surfed. Read More
  • Adventure Napali and Beyond to Niihau

    Napali Coast, Kauai, HawaiiEarlier this summer, we asked our Facebook fans to share their favorite Hawaii adventures.  Far and away, the number one favorite adventure in Hawaii takes place on the ocean.  At least, for our Facebook fans.  Of all the water related activities mentioned, experiencing Kauai's Napali Coastline ranked right at the top.

  • Warning Box Jellyfish Invasion

    Once a month, Hawaii receives a visit from alien invaders.  Instead of the air, they come from the sea.  They are box jellyfish, and they particularly like the beaches along Waikiki.  I've always heard they arrive a week or so after the full moon.  I've seen warning signs placed on beaches.  I've read about their "victims" in the newspapers.  This month, when an email crossed my desk announcing the the pending arrival of these critters, I decided I wanted some more information.  So, I went to the experts--the Waikiki Aquarium--and Karen Quinn patiently and thoroughly answered my questions.

  • A Weekend On Kauai

    Saturday night found us at the Kapaa Jodo Mission for their annual bon dance festival. We ate “pronto pups” (you may know them as corn dogs) and “flying saucers” (a.k.a sloppy joe’s) and chili rice, the staple foods of these events happening most every weekend throughout the summer across the Hawaiians Islands.

    According to a press release from The Ocean Project, the goal of World Oceans Day is “to raise awareness about the crucial role the ocean plays in our lives, and the important ways people can help to protect our shared world ocean.”  In the United States, Hawaii became the first state to recognize and celebrate World Oceans Day. On Tuesday, volunteers around the state participated in beach clean ups and reef surveys. Seminars and movie screenings educated the public on the prevalence of plastic in our Pacific Ocean.

  • What's Your Favorite Hawaii Adventure?

    ATV rider at Kualoa Ranch on OahuA few weeks ago, we conducted an informal poll on Facebook. We asked, “What’s your favorite Hawaii adventure?” 168 of our fans responded. Many of you could not make up your mind and reeled off a laundry list of your favorite adventures. We ran all those responses through our not-so-very-scientific analysis—called hand tabulating—to give you this report. Read More
  • Shark Week: Its Coming.

    Next week, Discovery Channels' perennial favorite "Shark Week" begins. If the above PSA is any indication of the focus this year's program will take, the next person to ask me, "Are there sharks in the ocean," may really be concerned that there aren't. We should all be concerned that there are fewer sharks in our oceans.

  • Celebrate World Oceans Day

    Very large Hawaiian monk seal mom and her one-day-old pupAs for me, I spent most of Saturday at the beach. If you’ve followed my blog for the past few months, you won’t be surprised that I was pup-sitting an endangered Hawaiian monk seal. But I wasn’t checking on “Sunrise Seal,” about whom I have written and photographed extensively. At 6:00 a.m., I checked on a pregnant mom, known at K01. When I left at 10:00, she had rolled back down into the water. I figured she was heading out to feed one more time, because once she pups, she won’t get another good meal for five to seven weeks. At 2:00 p.m., I received a text message: K01 had pupped. Read More
  • Surf’s Up in Hawaii.

    Cars lined east side surf spots this past weekend.  An unusual sight for us, because the island’s best surf usually hits the north shore.  However, this weekend, our northeast tradewinds barely puffed while variable winds whispered from the south/southwest, making the rolling waves on the east side as smooth as butter.
