A hot day in the Captain Cook area — let’s SNORKEL! After wandering around the City of Refuge (Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park) we jumped off 2-Step (the popular snorkel spot just north) and snorkeled Honaunau Bay. Usually there are many honu (green sea turtles) here, but only a few today. Lots of fish, though: cornet fish, trigger fish, parrotfish, white-spotted balloon fish, pufferfish, moorish idol (kihi kihi), wrasse, yellow tang, and butterfly fish (many varieties). The corals were colorful and visibility was surprisingly good given the high surf of the previous two days.
