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.
If you’d like to see more about snorkeling, check out these Maui snorkel maps, or read this information about snorkeling Maui.
Yea! So true. Most people are nice to them, but once in a while, you get the jerk who wants to be the turtle wrestler. Thanks for the awesome comic!
Love it. Turtle humor 🙂
