Notes:

For the second dive I went out on the left side of the cove and focused on the area straight out in front of Sharks Cove then came back in on the right side of the cove. I chose to just do a relaxing dive to observe all the fish species that inhabit the cove.

Saw a lot of Reef or Wedge Tailed Trigger Fish shown in the photo below, called Humuhumu-nukunuku-apua´a in the Hawaiian language which means fish that grunts like a pig. The  humuhumu as it is often referred to is the Hawaii State Fish.
