Inspired by the oatmeal, we thought it would be fun to build a short comic about why we don’t share while snorkeling with tourists. This is based on real life experiences (unfortunately.) We hope you like it!
Moral of the story: Leave the ocean life to itself. Maui has some incredible life in the ocean, but it’s best to enjoy from a safe distance. This ensures everybody’s safety. Going within 10 feet of a sea turtle on purpose is against the law. Sea turtles are protected by law because they can become overstressed and possibly drowned by human interaction.
