I glided in the water with a manta ray. Her undulating fins flicked at the edges as she slid through the sea. With the aid of my snorkel, I floated above her for a long time, mesmerized by her beauty.
All this was made possible because of the amazing women who run Blue Connection Hawaii. Being with them was a sweet experience because the small boat, with is maximum of six guests, fosters an intimate experience. The crew is so friendly and knowledgeable. And one of them is a mermaid!
As they took us around on a snorkel tour, we encountered a few other boats packed with people. That made me happy to be one of three people sitting on the bow of our boat as it booked across the waters.
The boat's name is Piko Kai: umbilical cord to the sea. I certainly felt like I was in the womb of the universe today.
