|The "Divers Down" flag went up on the boat at around 9:00 this morning.|
First three groups of divers got in the water, then me, the lone snorkeler.
|A school of pilot whales were the biggest animals we saw today.|
We joined the whales during the surface interval when divers stay out of the
water for safety reasons. Quite a few people snorkeled above the whales.
|The next-biggest thing was this tiger shark, which Len saw while diving|
at Crescent Beach. Meanwhile, I snorkeled there in quite shallow water.
|I saw many schools of fish swimming among the jagged lava rocks.|
|A starfish on the rocky cliffs.|
