    Oct. 21, 2007 (6790 views)

    I have dived at Five Graves and poked around inside all of the caves on many occasions without seeing a single shark. But I can't remember a dive that I saw as many sharks as I did there today. There seemed to be one in every cave that Tau and I entered. The above photo taken in the "Toilet Bowl" cave tells the story.

Take a close look at the accompanying photos on this page which tell the story better than a thousand words. And we even had an article published about our efforts in The Maui...

    May. 23, 2008 (7599 views)

    The Hawaiian creation chant places the origin of life at the sea, beginning with a coral polyp. Springtime is the beginning of the yearly coral spawning ritual. The signals are subtle. First, the water temperatures begin their gradual rise as the season changes from winter to spring. Next, a fat full moon droops through the heavy clouds of a tropical May spring night.
