Unlikely west coast of Oahu Hawaii it has been wet. Look at how green there is! This is greener than in winter time, it is very rare this much colorful green mountain you can see at west Oahu. It is so beautiful.

Mountain is so green, Ocean is so blue, beach and cloud are so white what else you need? Enjoy isolates beaches on west Oahu.

It was good visibility too at snorkeling. We got an Octopus (of course I released it) saw eels, lots of tropical fish, school of goat fish and unicone fish. Hawaiian state fish (Fumufumunukunukuapuaa)  and of course Honu the Hawaiian green sea turtle. I can say 90% of time we found them while we are snorkeling at west Oahu tour.

Hawaii snorkeling Hanauma bay

Hawaii Hanauma bay

I used to working as a snorkeling instructor at Hanauma bay. It is most popular snorkeling site in Oahu Hawaii. It’s about 3000 people visit a day depends on seasons. Hanauma bay is great snorkeling site for all beginner even who is with kids or first time snorkeler. Usually very calm and shallow water sometimes you can see Honu the sea green sea turtles.

Some of the website says Hanauma bay is “most dangerous snorkeling site in Oahu” I was like WHAT? no way, Hanauma bay is most safest beach you go snorkel. I tell you why they said most dangerous beach in Hawaii. Actually percentage of people drawning is very high rate at Hanauma bay. Let me explain that. As I said 3000 people visit a day maybe more in summer that is lots of people. Some of them are elder people. I heard high percentage of who drowned were hurt attach not really “drowned” so very unfair to say Hanauma bay is “most dangerous snorkeling site in Hawaii”

Whatever you go in water, you need buddy. Please do not go in water by yourself. If your grandma gets hurt attach in water if there is somebody with her she might be saved. If your love one get trouble in water you can call for help.
Actually drowning people are very quiet. They don’t look like drowning. They cannot call for help at all. Please please be there for your love one.

Fact about Hawaiian green sea turtle. Binomial name Chelonia mydas

Lifespan is about 80 years.
Green turtles are among the largest sea turtles in the world. Weighing up to 700 pounds (317.5 kilograms) and up to 5 feet (1.5m).

Adult green sea turtle is only one sea turtle mainly eat sea grasses and algae while juveniles have a more carnivorous diet. They are only doing two things in their life. Guess what?
Eating and sleeping. Who want to be a green sea turtle now? Green sea turtle is mainly eat vegetable there is not much nutrition in it this is reason why they have to eat all the time.

Green sea turtle is lung breathing creature. They spend all most all life in water but they must breath air, They can be in water about 2 hours depends on what they are doing. When they are only sleeping they can be in water more than 2 hours.

Green sea turtle lays 100 to 200 eggs but you know how many of them can be adult… it is not even 1 % of them.

Swimming with dolphins in Hawaii

Swimming with dolphins in Hawaii
Swimming with dolphins in Hawaii

It’s about 3000 spinner dolphins migrate in Hawaii islands.
Hawaiian spinner dolphins are 1.7 to 2.2 meters, 25 to 75 kilograms.

Spinner dolphins are known for their acrobatics and aerial behaviors. A spinner dolphin comes out of the water front first and twists its body as it rises into the air. When it reaches its maximum height, the dolphin descends back into the water, landing on its side. A dolphin can make two to 5.5 spins in one leap; the swimming and rotational speed of the dolphin as it spins underwater affects the number of spins it can do while airborne.

Spinner dolphins are not really “friendly dolphin”. They usually don’t play with human, they will try to running away from you so please when you find a spinner dolphins in water do not approach them,, just wait they start approach you.
The spinner dolphins sometimes come up to you, check you out or say hello, sometimes they accept you to be in the their pod. When I am photographing spinner dolphin in Hawaii, I see the dolphins front of me then I look at my behind there are 100 dolphins surround me. It is WOW, It is amazing experience.

Photo Gallery ZERO and Hawaii Real Nature Tour have private tour goes to one of the Hawaiian spinner dolphins playground.
We do not use a boat which harass them. We are going to look for dolphins from the beaches, chances are I can say 70% but this tour is not only for the dolphins we can take you hidden west Oahu Hawaiian scared places and historical places or as much as we have time we can take you to have special Hawaii Aloha day.

Please contact us, any requests are welcome. You don’t have to swimming with 50 people, you don’t feel be ignored by tour guide. We do only small group (maximum 10 people) or private tour. Be personal, we care, we work, you enjoy!

Naupaka the Hawaiian legend

Naupaka, Hawaiian legend
Naupaka, Hawaiian legend

There is several legend about this flower NAUPAKA.

This is one of them.

There was a beautiful Hawaiian princess Naupaka.

One day, her friends noticed that Naupaka looked very sad. They wanted help her and asked what was wrong with you?.

“I have fallen in love with a man named Kaui but Kaui is not of noble birth—he is a commoner.” According to Hawaiian tradition, it was strictly forbidden for members of royalty to marry people from the common ranks.

Distressed, Naupaka and Kaui traveled long and far, seeking a solution to their dilemma. They climbed up a mountain to see a kahuna who was staying at a heiau (temple). Alas, he had no clear answer for the young lovers. “There is nothing I can do,” he told them, “but you should pray. Pray at this heiau.”

So they did. And as they prayed, rain began to fall. Their hearts torn by sorrow, Naupaka and Kaui embraced for a final time. Then Naupaka took a flower from her ear and tore it in half, giving one half to Kaui. “The gods won’t allow us to be together,” she said. “You go live down by the water, while I will stay up here in the mountains.”

As the two lovers separated, the naupaka plants that grew nearby saw how sad they were. The very next day, they began to bloom in only half flowers.
