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.

We floated in the surf with these huge Green Sea Turtles while listening to them

 munch on algae from the reef.  Pretty Cool
