This was in the bluish water just off a dive site the locals call Golden Arches, but they can be sighted just about anywhere of the Kona coast, including from the lanai of Kona Isle D21.
We had just wrapped up our first dive of the morning, when one of the excellent dive guides pointed about a mile away and said they were en route.
All we had to do was snorkel out to them a few hundred yards straight off the dive boat's bow, and let them swim past.
They didn't stick around. They were on a mission.
Or, maybe they knew better than to hang around a bunch of peoplefolk, knowing how much trouble we can be.
It took much kicking and thrashing just to get this close before they sped past, paying us no never mind. Most times, if an ocean critter chooses not to swim with you, it's up to them.
