Thats why I'm hoping those snails the size of a cantaloupe may detour him fir awhile.
Hows our pufferfish doing these days ?

We always had a soft spot for puffers... When snorkeling in hawaii they are really curious and will come up to you just out of arms reach and check you out .. If your arm is say 27 " theyll hang out at about 29 " very cool to see in the wild

Great to hear. If you haven't been to Molikini before I highly recommend a trip to it while you're on Maui. Great diving there!

I know a lot of people who have done this trip and most all thought it was pretty cool,,,but my GF. Gets sea sick very easily so for us it's out of the question,...no worries ,we've got a couple of areas that we snorkel from shore that are awesome in itself...... I still feel that overall the Big Island prob has the best snorkeling ,..... But as they say "it's all good!! "
