Tide Pools in Hawaii

Hawaii Tide Pools

My friends and I took a little hike out to some wonderful tide pools, and just like any other visit to the pools it was magical.  The waves were crashing over the rock walls and the tide was swirling around our feet.  Such an excellent day to chill at the tide pools in Hawaii.

Hiking the Lahaina Pali Trail

The Hike up the Lahaina Pali Trail Hiking the Lahaina Pali Trail can be an amazing experience. Starting from the south side of the Lahaina Pali Trail is the best, if you can get a ride back from the far end.  The Lahaina Pali Trail is 5.5 miles long and has quite an elevation change.  The heat is extreme when you start hiking up, but there are some awesome sites to be seen.  Hiking up takes up about 40 percent of this hike, and it is the hardest part about it.  Take a few breaks on the hike up the … Read More from Photographer on Maui…

West Maui Tide Pool

"Tide Pool" by Kevin Hoffman

Laura and Cassie wanted to cruise West Maui back roads after we got done our Lanai dolphin cruise on the Pacific Whale Foundation boat (which was awesome). During our cruise, we stopped by some tide pools on the North Shore of West Maui, and took some pictures in these tide pools. These tide pools are incredible, teaming with aquatic life washed up in storms, and filtered constantly by the ocean water. This tide pool is about 10 feet deep, and there are many more on West Maui, some more difficult to access. This West Maui tide pool is especially dangerous, … Read More from Photographer on Maui…
