While in Kauai, we had time to do one dive. Instead of doing a typical dive with
lots of colorful coral and fish, we found ourselves swimming in the dark through narrow
passageways that were once filled with flowing lava. A little scary, but fun! Other sea life
included huge green sea turtles, a monk seal, and nenes.
