    Northwest Coast of Maui

    Prime beaches, crystal blue water, and mystical mountians make the northwest shore of Maui a beautiful and mellow place to be.  It doesn't get much better than this.

    Windsurfing at Ho'okipa Beach

    Windsurfing at Ho'okipa draws a huge crowd every day of the week.  The geometry of the shore and the confluence of waves and constant wind make this beach one of the best windsurfing beaches anywhere.

    Kite Surfing at Ho'okipa Beach

    Ho'okipa Beach on Maui is the best windsurfing beach in Hawaii and one of the best in the world.  You don't see as many kite surfers as wind surfers, but it's a sport of growing popularity.

    The Iao Needle (on the left) marks the site of the decisive battle when King Kamehameha I invaded Maui and took over the island. It was part of his successful campaign to unite the Hawaiian Islands under one ruler.

    Haleakula is Maui's main volcano.  The caldera is enormous and multi-colored.  It's a beautiful and majestic sight.

  • Kilueua Iki
    Kilueua Iki

    Kilueua Iki is a small caldera in Volcanoes National Park.  The lava bed below is 400 feet below the surrounding rim.  I think it's one of the best hikes on the island.  On a windy, rainy day, crossing the caldera is like hiking across an alien planet surface.

  • Wild Goat on a Lava Field
    Wild Goat on a Lava Field

    We were hiking across a field of lava east of the Blue Lagoon on the Big Island of Hawaii and came across a small herd of wild goats.  Goats were first brought to the islands by Captain Cook and, like most non-native species, are destructive to Hawaii's fragile ecosystem.

    Giovanni's Lunchwagon on Oahu

    We discovered this graffiti-laden lunch wagon on the north shore of Oahu.  Their spicy shrimp offering was hotter than an active volcano.  Every bite brought tears to your eyes.

  • Slithery Moray Eels
    Slithery Moray Eels

    We saw these two moray eels in an ancient Hawaiian fishpond near Mauna Lani beach.  One is sliding under the other one.  Moray eels have rows of needle-sharp teeth in their exterior jaw--and an interior jaw that also has teeth.  Among their favorite foods are fish and small crabs.  At night, you can often see Morays slithering around the rocks on shore hunting for crabs.  Photo by Debra.

  • Hawaiian Green Turtle on the Beach
    Hawaiian Green Turtle on the Beach

    This lazy fellow is sunning himself on a Hawaiian beach.  Lying on the beach aids in the turtle's digestion.  Visitors to Hawaii see these magnificant creatures on the beaches and often come too close.  These turtles are protected, and it's prohibited to come within 20 feet of them.  Debra took this shot with a telephoto lens.
