  • 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
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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
  • Whale-Watching in Maui #2

    At 7:30 this morning, the sun glinted off the ocean like it was a field of diamonds.  Three minutes outside the Lahaina Harbor, Captain Karl of Maui Adventure Cruises nosed the boat northwest.  He had already spotted our first humpback whales of the morning.  Thar she blows.

  • Whale-Watching in Maui #1

    When I visit Maui, one of the first places I go is Maui Tacos. Thankfully, my plane touched down today just before lunchtime. After lunch, I traveled down South Kihei Road to the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale Sanctuary’s education center. And on to Papawai Scenic Lookout.
