The Evil Eel - Snorkeling Hanauma Bay
Me, my dad, and my sister were snorkeling at the beginning of the outer reef at Hanauma Bay, Oahu. We were looking at the fish swimming around us. I was turned the opposite direction my dad was facing.
I heard a sound but I ignored it. Then someone grabs my flipper. I turned around and my dad is pointing at a six foot long Moray Eel twenty feet in front of us. It had popped out of a hole. It swam towards us like we were gonna feed it. No Way! We swam backwards slowly but it kept getting closer and closer to us. It stopped 3 feet in front of us as we were backing up and swam away.
It turns out my sister thought it was gonna attack us and now calls it the "Evil Eel". The moral to the story is.... don't feed eels. When they get used to it they follow little girls thinking they have food.
