Turtle town

Have you noticed any tourist documentation referring to the city of turtle? If so, you may be curious to know where he is. Turtle town is a place made to attract people to go on snorkelling trips. Generally, these dive trips will be head of Maluaka beach front of the Makena Beach Resort. The city of turtle by the name is misleading. Although there are turtles, there is no guarantee that you will see one during your visit. Many places around Maui have turtles. Honokeana Bay, one of the best is just to the South of Napili Bay. [Update: If you have an iPhone, the Tourist Guide of Maui GPS will help you find the location of Maluaka and Honokeana when you are in the area.]

The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle is an endangered species. It is well to observe in the water, but you are not allowed to touch. Honokowai, West Maui, more than 90% of the turtles have tumors. Tumors are clearly visible on their bodies. Scientists not sure what can be the cause. As always, the pollution is a suspect, but is a certain type of virus.

Is Honokeana Bay Turtle Town?Is the city of Turtle Bay Honokeana?
