A colleague of mine just got back from Maui. He claims to have been told by locals around the Maalaea harbor that Molokini was closing for regeneration in a similar fashion to La Perouse, and snorkel boats were going to head to Kaho'olawe to keep up their business. This is from a guy who wears a bright yellow t-shirt saying "I'm Dyin to be Hawaiian" and feels like he's blending in.
If true, maybe we could add unexploded ordinances to Snorkel Bob's fish charts. If false, please share your own folk tales for tourists.
