That's too bad, but that's ocean life. Hope all are okay!
I heard about this on the news last night. Very unusual occurrence for Maui and this location in particular. We have to remember the ocean is full of things that might not be friendly!!
On my last trip to Molokini a few years ago we had to get out of the water early because of jellyfish in the water. I actually like the boat ride more than I do snorkeling so I wasn't terribly disappointed.
Jellyfish shutdown places on Oahu also:
We went to Hilton Head Island for two summers before our last trip to Maui. It was full of jellyfish, my wife got a bad sting. Lovely place with very warm waters and really liked it there but the critters were one of the main reasons we decided not to go back.
We don't get the regular influx Oahu tends to, here on Maui. Sure, we get them sometimes-but it is more like every three or four months, sometimes not even that often.
