Maui Blog - Georgie Hunter R(S): Everybody loves a sea turtle on the beach - especially on Maui

Everybody loves a sea turtle on the beach - especially on Maui

In the past few years the sea turtle populations have really made a big comeback here on Maui.  These turtles were recently seen at Ho'okipa Beach Park on Maui's north shore, and snapped by Carlos Jabour while on vacation.

Visitors to the island love to stop and watch them and take pictures.  The turtles really don't do much, just lay on the beach, and come and go as they please.  They get a chance to rest on the sand and catch some rays, just like the tourists who flock here each year.

Must be nice to live this kind of lifestyle!

Lovely pictures, Georgie. Thanks for sharing them. It's been years since I was in Hawaii, but three of our grandchildren were born there and one of my best friends was from Hawaii and returned to live there for a few years... so for a long time I had lots of reasons to visit your beautiful state. Not so much anymore, unfortunately.

Looks like they are all taking a nap.  That would certainly be a nice scene to see!

Georgie,

I love the "honu" creatures in Hawaii.  We were snorkeling on the Big Island, and we watched one diving, and then come up.  It looked like an angel!  A

Hey Georgie, you know the area I live in (Florida Space Coast) is the largest Sea Turtle nesting area on earth. Here is a fun fact...sea turtles lay their eggs withing a quarter mile of the spot they were hatched. They have radar I guess.

Oh, they are amazing creatures. They look so prehistoric. I haven't seen one since we visited Maui about 10 years ago.

I was reading a story about a green sea turtle and what it taught the person telling the story about life and not fighting the waves but going with the flow and focusing on those things that help you acheive your goals and not everything that comes your way. Love the photo, makes me want to go and take a snooze and wait for winter to pass.

Jupiter Beach in Florida is a hatching ground and is staked out for the eggs. It's fun to see the little ones come up and head to sea as they have done for thousands of years.

That's where I want to be during this Polar Vortex...laying on a beach as the warm sunshine beams upon my face. So jealous

What wonderful pictures of Maui beach wildlife, Georgie.  Much of the country is envious of your wonderful island weather.

Myrl Jeffcoat Thanks for the feature!  We're getting some rainy weather on the island today, but at least it just washes away and makes things clean.

Georgie, loved the photo and there were a lot of turtles looking for a photo opportunity:)Endre

Dear Georgie,

My guess would be along the same line as Joe's. Do they lay their eggs there? Besides the islands in that location, the options might be a little slim in all directions.

Nice post especially for Friday afternoon.. set my mind for the weekend. I visited Lanai a few years ago and I was in love. I bet that island is not the only one that I would fall in love. Thank you for sharing
