Monty the Monk Seal - Big Island Hawaii
Monty the Monk Seal
Last March when we were on our vacation we went snorkeling at our favorite spot, Honaunau on the Big Island. Suddenly were joined by a very curious and friendly Monk Seal; we named him Monty. He came up behind my husband and looked at him face to face. He then began to swim beside him and later chase his fins. He would swim below him and come up and look right at him almost with a smile. He was very cute! We watched him swim with us and few other snorkelers for about 15 minutes before he swam away. It was a very exciting experience.
