Wow what a day today! We got up and grabbed a coffee then drove up to Napili to meet up with Rod and Gill at their accommodation. They took us to a cove where we jumped in off the rocks and did some snorkeling. We were told there was a bunch of sea turtles in the water as well as many colorful fish. When we first got in I couldn't see any turtles, then I realized they were on the bottom, tucked between rocks and coral sleeping. Some of them were so massive they must have been pretty old and they had algae or some sort of green moss like stuff growing on their shells. Some were over a meter long and really solid, we swam around looking at them for a while, and also spotted a moray eel and a puffer fish. Then we discovered a bunch of turtles who were swimming around and coming to the surface for breaths of air so we swam with them for a while. I was watching a couple swim in front of me when I looked to my right and there was a massive one right up next to me. It gave me a bit of a fright, but they don't seem to mind people at all and weren't afraid or aggressive towards us, just cruised around. When the turtles swam around the smaller fish would swim up to them and eat the stuff growing on their shells. It was incredible to be so close to them and not seem to bother them. We stayed with the turtles until we got too cold then climbed/struggled out of the water onto the rocks and jumped in the pool and hot tub. Next we stopped by the rental company to switch over our car and stopped in Lahaina for lunch. After lunch we headed south towards our hotel with Rod and Gill following and were going to hire some stand-up paddle boards but the water was too choppy as it was really windy. So we followed Rod and Gill past Makena beach to another snorkel spot they knew of and had another swim. At this spot we saw many larger colorful fish, and one sea turtle going for a swim so we followed him for a little while then dried off and headed back to the hotel. On our way back we took a detour to the south of the island where there was a big lava field and when we looked up the hill we could see the cinder cone where the lava had erupted out of, it looked really cool. At the hotel we had a beer and watched the sunset which was really nice as the wind had started to die down, then we said bye to Rod and Gill and grabbed some dinner and had an early night so we can get up early and go to Hana tomorrow.
