We swam with a sea turtle!

We saw our first gecko:
Brady & Keaton waiting for us to catch up to snorkel:
We were taking a picture of a spider - ewwww:
Next to Honolua Bay is Makuleia Bay and has less people and is great for seeing fish:
Keaton Journal:
Had the best snorkeling yesterday, saw two eels and a turtle. There were lots of little crevices where fish could hide, and it was very clear and colorful. After snorkeling, we went to another beach to hike a trail, however, the trail was very steep and has lots of little rocks that got into our shoes as we hiked. It hurt like heck, so I didn't even go all the way. Plus it said the trail was a closed area anyways.
We saw 3 sea turtles, 1 was huge!  We could only swim as fast as the smallest one - hehe
Brady Journal:
Snorkeling yesterday was freaking SAWEET. We saw a bunch of huge, colorful fish in between these trench-like areas of coral, along with two eels. We also saw this gigantic puffer-fish deep down low in a trench. I wanted a closer look so I held my breath and swam down a bit to get as close as I could. But the best part about yesterday was when we all got out to leave because we noticed a turtle in the water not far from where we got out. Exhilarated, we all jumped back in and swam side by side with the cute sea turtle :D
