Travel Sketches: Wrasse and Reef

Kapalua Bay

This was one of the dive sites we hit. The dotted line indicates our dive path (dark blue for reef, and light blue for sand). This dive conisted of pretty nice reef (in good condition) with lots of contour. The best parts of the dive were the two turtles just chilling underwater and the funny puffers. The puffers must have been feed at some point because there were following us around like puppies. One liked us so much that it followed us all the way up to the beach, then gave us sad puppy pufferfish eyes when we left the water.

Rainbow Cleaner Wrasse

At Kapalua Bay (Maui), there was a large coral mound that must have been a cleaning station for all the fish in the area. There was at least a half a dozen rainbow cleaner wrasses hanging out on this pinnacle, and those were just the ones I happened to see.
