  • It’s hard to tell when someone is in trouble when almost everyone has his/her head faced down in the water floating around. Maybe when a person is faced down for a minute with no snorkel sticking it may be a sign of trouble. Tough job. Almost need a paddler continuously paddling among the snorkelers.

  • Wonder what the death toll is at the bay in the past 20 years. It must be pretty high. Kind of amazing how many people drown there compared to Waikiki where hundreds and
    probably several thousand people are in the water. Seems like there needs to be a better system in place at the bay to help reduce the number of drownings.

    • This incidence happened to a 35 year old, but most of the others unfortunates are up over 60 with cardiac issues or medical problems. The Bay calm waters are ideal for the beginning snorkelers.
