Despite having had lived briefly with a river in my backyard, my total lifetime fishing time probably added up to less than 30 minutes (until this last year.)  It’s something that has always interested me, so when I was invited on my 1st Maui spearfishing trip, I jumped at the opportunity. […]

A snorkeler’s View

By |June 26th, 2012|Maui, Maui Activities, Maui Animals, Maui Snorkeling|Comments Off on A snorkeler’s View

When snorkeling, most enjoy the colorful shallows of coastal reefs due to the density of fish and sea life found there.  Rocky volcanic caverns and intricately woven coral reefs provide sanctuary for small and medium sized fish.  Some of these active reefs are found just off the shore, while others require boat access.  […]

Maui Private Charters

Snorkeling When Pregnant

By |February 2nd, 2011|Hawaii, Maui, Maui Activities, Maui Beaches, Maui Snorkeling|1 Comment

This is the first of many posts we’ll be adding about being pregnant on Maui. For the most part, snorkeling while pregnant can be done without danger and can be a great way to get some exercise while increasing the mother’s happiness (both very important for a healthy pregnancy.) There are a few things you should consider before snorkeling while pregnant. When in your 3rd trimester, it’s a bit more risky since you’ll have less energy and dexterity. Dangers and tips: 1. Reef Cuts and Infection Upon entry and exit of the water, you’ll often find yourself in shallow water. Shallows are also prevalent around reef outcroppings. If you touch the reef at anytime, you’ll likely be cut. Cuts lead to infections, which are bad news when pregnant. We suggest going out at calm beaches and staying a clear distance from any reef.
