Hawaiian Monk Seal Behavior, Tunnels, Kauai
by Carl Hutcherson
On our last trip to Kauai, at Tunnels, we encountered a couple of very playful Hawaiian Monk Seals that swam right up to me. It appeared that they were as curious about my camera as I was about them.
Is this a common activity for them, or was I just blessed to be at the right place at the right time?
Below is my video of the interaction. Sorry it is so jumpy, but I was trying to keep myself between the seals and my wife in case they got aggressive.
Galen & Nicole, I just wanted to thank y'all for your fantastic website and guides. It is a wonderful resource for us folks who really enjoy snorkeling and viewing Gods creatures.
