What you'll do

We will meet up in the evening at Sharks Cove, located near the state Marine Protected Area on the North Shore of Oahu. The educational tour begins with a short presentation about the unique and wondrous marine ecosystems of Hawaii. We will discuss which characteristics of the islands make Hawaii's ecosystems unlike any others in the world. You will be introduced to the organisms and creatures we will be seeing during our tour as well as given a safety briefing outlining possible risks. At the conclusion of the presentation, you will be provided with underwater lights, reef shoes to protect your feet (optional), and a mask and snorkel to search for endemic invertebrates in the tidal areas of Sharks Cove. Many of these unique creatures can often only be found after dark. We will photograph them, describe them, and discuss each animal we find. At the conclusion of our time in the tide pools, we will debrief on the beach about what we saw and the significance of each creature. Questions will be answered. You will be provided with photos of the animals as a keepsake to remember.
