It is well known in shark circles around Hawaii that human sashimi is excellent this time of year!

Spike. Where have you been? I've missed you.
How am I going to hone my criticism skills without you?

Even though it's extremely rare for this type of attack to happen, it's still possible. About 5 years ago my wife and I were snorkeling in water about 25 feet deep off Maui, when my wife tells me there was something fairly large moving below us. I was hoping it was another snorkeler, but we were all alone. So I figured I might as well go ahead and look down and see what it was. Better to get it over with. Well, when I looked, it was a sea turtle! What a relief.

We were in Maui in September (Wailea). We saw many sea turtles, but decided we were done when we saw a yellow and black sea snake.
