We stopped by Makena Landing for our second beach of the day. Visibility was terrible. We were there about 1 pm and we had about 1 foot of viz. We bumped into each other and a few other divers (literally bumped into them) because we could not see. Our snorkel was very short. We did, however see a Honu (green sea turtle). Unfortunately, it was only from shore. We had two Honu sightings here. The second time, he came up right in front of us as we were taking off our fins. He was in 6 inches of water about 3 feet off the landing. I put my gear back on very quickly, but could not catch up to him to see him up close. Probably could not have seen much anyway, as the water was so thick. Not recommended for snorkeling, based on my experience today.
