Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale

National Marine Sanctuary H

awaiian waters are a birthplace for humpback whales in the North Pacific Ocean. From November to May as many as 10,000 whales may migrate to Hawai‘i during the humpback whale season. Hawai‘i’s warm shallow waters provide important habitat for humpback whales and are ideal for mating, calving and nursing. Nearly two thirds of the entire North Pacific population of humpback whales migrate to Hawai‘i each winter.

Here they are protected as a resource of national significance within the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary. The sanctuary stretches from Maui to several nearby Hawaiian Islands, encompassing approximately 1,200 square nautical miles of coastal and ocean waters. It includes areas around the islands of Maui, Läna‘i, and Moloka‘i, and parts of O‘ahu, Kaua‘i and the Big Island of Hawai‘i. The sanctuary’s goal is to promote comprehensive and coordinated management, research, education, and long term monitoring for the endangered humpback whale and its habitat.

S

ighting humpback whales can be an awe-inspiring experience whether from the water or the shore. Their impressive acrobatic displays are visible from miles away. During the humpback whale season in Hawai‘i, whales can be seen quite easily from most shorelines around the Hawaiian Islands. Take a whale-watch cruise or a trip to the beach or a scenic lookout and watch for the blows, tail slaps, fluke up dives, and breaches of Hawai‘i’s humpback whales. For a more enjoyable whale watching experience here are some helpful tips: • Use binoculars or telephoto lenses to enhance your viewing experience. • Be aware of and obey all wildlife rules and encourage others to do the same. • Always view animals in the wild from an appropriate distance. In Hawai‘i it is illegal to approach humpback whales closer than 100 yards on the water and 1,000 feet by air. • Never feed or attempt to feed wild animals. Feeding marine wildlife is illegal in Hawai‘i and can cause animals to become dependent on humans, changes their natural behavior and makes them vulnerable to vessel strikes and illnesses from contaminated or inappropriate food.

Here are some excellent viewing locations on O‘ahu: ~ Makapu‘u Lighthouse Trail ~ ~ Hälona Blowhole ~ Hanauma Bay ~ ~ Diamond Head Lookout ~ For more information, visit the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary website at HawaiiHumpbackWhale.noaa.gov.

STATUES OF ALI`I in Waikīkī

(A)

(A) Queen Esther Julia Kapi‘olani, 1834–1899, wife of King David Kaläkaua. The king donated crown lands between Diamond Head and Waikïkï as a public park in her honor. Her statue is in Kapi‘olani Park fronting the bandstand. (B) Prince Jonah Ku ¯ hio ¯ Kalaniana‘ole, 1871–1922. After the monarchy was overthrown in 1893, Prince Kühiö was (B) elected as a delegate to the United States Congress and served for 20 years until his death. His statue fronts Kühiö Beach. (C) Princess Victoria Ka‘iulani, 1875–1899, of Hawaiian-Scottish heri- (C) tage, was heir to the throne prior to Queen Lili‘uokalani’s overthrow. She was just 23 when she died. A celebration is held on her birthday, Oct. 16, at her statue in the park on Ka‘iulani at Kühiö Avenues. (D) (D) King David Kala ¯ kaua, 1836–1891, a patron of the arts, is known as the Merrie Monarch.

Wizards in Waikïkï

W

alking along the beach in the center of Waikïkï beach, near the Waikïkï Police Substation, there are palm trees shading grassy spots to rest. Surfers, swimmers and those who just want to watch the waves are often startled, coming upon a fenced-in monument of giant stones. A very long time ago, possibly 400 A.D., four healers traveled to Hawai’i from the distant islands of Tahiti. Legend says these men were kähuna, or wizards. Back then they might have been called soothsayers. Hawai’i and Tahiti might have had other names, but there is little doubt of the truth to the story of their heroic voyage from far across the sea. Tales of their arrival have been recorded through chant and oft repeated lore. Said to be attractive, beguiling and adept at the science of healing, they were welcomed to their new island home. They settled in Waikïkï, in an area called Ulukou, near what is now the Moana Surfrider hotel. Their names were Kahäloa, Kapuni, Kinohi and Kapaemähü. They are described as tall and stately with gentle, feminine ways. As they relieved pain, eliminated suffering and accomplished daily miracles of healing their fame spread across the island. They knew they would not stay in Hawai’i. Their intent was to heal, teach, share and go back to their island across the sea, leaving behind a powerful monument. They presented their plan. On the night of the full moon, thousands of followers gathered at the highest elevation of Kaimukï, the hill behind Diamond Head, a full two miles from Waikïkï Beach. Not unlike the thousands of Egyptians who quarried stones to build the pyramids, these men and women were on a sacred mission, following their wizard’s directions. Continued on page 16

The answer to “Where did you get that?” isn’t a store. It’s a story.

The fun begins by choosing your oyster from the bucket. Next, the ring of a bell and shout of “Aloha!” and there’s your genuine pearl. Then select a beautiful sterling silver or gold setting, perhaps a ring, pendant or matching earrings. Your pearl will be mounted as you watch. And not only will you have an elegant piece of fine jewelry, but a memory to share with friends – and each other – forever. Original. Authentic. And part of Hawaii for more than 30 years.

Wizards in Waikïkï Story by Lynn Cook, photos by Ron Ihori.

Wizard Stones or Kähuna Stones? These ancient stones are part of the legends of Waikïkï and the history and culture of the Hawaiian people. Plaques mounted on the base of the paepae (stone platform) tell the story of the stones in Hawaiian and English.

Four great stones, each weighing a ton or more, were to be moved down to Ulukou where the healers lived. Before leaving Hawai’i the wizards promised to endow their powers to one of the stones. Hand to hand, inch by inch the monumental stones were moved. Incantations, prayers and ceremonies dedicated the stones. The wizards left. Time passed. The stones continued to be a source of power.

F

ast forward to modern Hawai’i. As Waikïkï was developed, traditions changed. The stones were pushed aside, nearly covered in sand. Over time only the top of the stones could be seen. It was said that Princess Likelike presented a lei to the stones before she swam at Waikïkï. But, as royalty faded from history, the power of the stones faded too. Surfers leaned their boards on the stones. Beach goers sat on them as they brushed sand from their feet. Today the huge stones are treated with honor. Raised on a platform and surrounded with a wrought iron fence, they are no longer a spot to drop wet beach towels and rubber slippers. Cultural historians and storytellers stop to pay their respects and leave a lei. The mystery of the story of wizards from across the sea is pondered and re-told. Some say that a full-moon night still brings wizard shadows and the sound of ancient voices, chanting. In 1997, the City and County of Honolulu placed “The Stones of Life” onto a paepae to preserve and protect them. As part of the ceremonies, Tahitians presented a stone, which they named Ta‘ahu Ea (the life), that was placed on an ahu (altar) in front of the display.

he 475-acre Diamond Head State Monument is a tuff cone that was created by an explosive eruption of steam and ash over 100,000 years ago. Hawaiian legend says that Hi‘iaka, sister of Pele the fire goddess, gave it the name Laeahi (which became Lë‘ahi) because the summit resembles the forehead (lae) of the ‘ahi fish. The Diamond Head Crater trail is a 0.8-mile path leading from the crater floor to the lookout at the 760-foot summit that offers panoramic views of Honolulu. Although the hike may look easy, it is steep and strenuous, with a long, steep flight of stairs near the top. Allow at least 1.5 hours for the round trip. Wear sunscreen, appropriate clothing and shoes; take water and refreshments; stay on marked trails; and do not smoke — the area is a fire-hazard zone. To reach the park from Kaläkaua Avenue, turn left at Monsarrat Avenue (just past the Zoo). At the top of the rise is Kapi‘olani Community College, watch for the park entrance on your right, just past the college. Diamond Head State Monument is open daily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Entrance fee is $5 per car or $1 per pedestrian. 808 587-0300. Spotlight’s O‘ahu Gold Magazine

Prince Ku¯hio¯ Celebration

March 26, 1871— January 7, 1922

E

very March, the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs honors their champion, Prince Kühiö, with a monthlong celebration. Prince Jonah Kühiö Kalaniana’ole, known as Ke Ali’i Maka’ainana, “the Citizen Prince,” is revered for his dedication to Native Hawaiian people and his role as founder of the Hawaiian Civic Club movement. He was also a delegate to Congress for the Territory of Hawai’i from 1903 until his passing in 1922. March 19: Pualeilani Festival of the Arts. To celebrate the Prince’s birthday, Royal Hawaiian Center and the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs present a day of Hawaiian folk, fine, and performing arts. Hawaiian music, traditional and modern hula, demonstrations and displays will fill The Royal Grove from noon to 7 p.m. RoyalHawaiianCenter.com, 808 922-2299. M a r c h 25: Prince Kühiö Day. State and city

offices are closed in observance of Prince Kühiö’s birthday, March 26. March 26: Prince Kühiö Commemorative Parade, with Association of Hawaiian Civic Club members marching and riding in vehicles, starts at 4:30 p.m. from Saratoga Road (at Fort DeRussy) and proceeds on Kaläkaua Avenue to Queen Kapi‘olani Park. Nearly every unit stops at the Prince’s statue (on the ocean side of the 2500 block of Kaläkaua Avenue) to offer a ho‘okupu (gift), lei, hula or chant. This does cause the parade to back up, so the best place to view it would be from the statue to Kapahulu Avenue. There may be other e v e n t s i n Q u een Kapi‘olani Park before and after the parade, but no information was received at our deadline. Check for updates at AOHCC. org or at H a w a i i Maoli.org.

Waikïkï SPAM JAM® Quick Facts: 9th Annual Waikïkï SPAM JAM® 4 to 10 p.m., April 30 Kaläkaua Avenue

Free, but please donate cash or cans of SPAM® products to the Hawai‘i Foodbank

H

awai‘i’s love affair with SPAM® started in World War II and has continued in the ensuing years. SPAM® was inexpensive, one can could go a long way to feed a large family, and its saltiness went well with rice or noodles — the way it was usually prepared in households of Asian and local heritage. The creation of the SPAM™ Musubi (a SPAM™-shaped mound of rice topped with a slice of SPAM®) in the 1970s increased its popularity to the point that annually nearly seven million cans of SPAM® are consumed in Hawai‘i. From 4 to 10 p.m. on April 30, the 9th Annual Waikïkï SPAM JAM® shows how creative island chefs can be with SPAM® as they prepare a variety of innovative dishes to tempt your taste buds. Don’t worry, non-SPAM™ meals are also available. Kaläkaua Avenue from Royal Hawaiian Center to Ka‘iulani is closed to traffic, so eat some SPAM®, enjoy music at two stages, make a contribution to the Hawai‘i Foodbank (the goal is 10,000 cans of SPAM®), and pick up some SPAM® memorabilia. For more information, visit SpamJamHawaii.com or call 808 255-5927. First photo: One of the many cooks creating SPAM® dishes. Second: A sample from Ono Cheese Steak. Center: Fans dress up for the festivities. Bottom: Island-style entertainment at one of two stages on Kaläkaua Avenue. Photos courtesy of Wayne Shinbara.

CHAI’S ISLAND BISTRO. Chef Chai Chaowasaree (standing) blends Asian and contemporary cooking styles to create a feast for your eyes as well as your palate. Look for dishes like Grilled Mongolian Lamb Chops with Brandy Demi-glace, Seafood Risotto with Fresh Big Island Heart of Palm or Asian Style Osso Buco with Kabocha Pumpkin. Open for lunch and dinner, Chai’s Island Bistro in the Aloha Tower Marketplace also presents contemporary island enter­tainers such as Jerry Santos (seated), The Brothers Cazimero, Robert Cazimero, and other popular musicians during dinner. Chef Chai has introduced a new dinner-only concept on the patio called Island Fondue.

38 Island Cookbooks

R

oy Yamaguchi, Alan Wong, Sam Choy and 15 other Hawai‘i culinary stars share their secrets for cooking with fresh island foods in “Hawai‘i Farmers Market Cookbook — Volume 2” (Watermark Publishing, BooksHawaii.net, 808 5877766, $15.95). While gathering recipes from the chefs, editor Joan Nam­koong requested that they keep their recipes home-cook friendly. The chefs were assigned a local food item and urged to use just five other ingredients, not including oil, salt and pepper. Recipes like Savory Spinach Bread Pudding, Grass-Fed Boeuf Bourguignon (Beef Stew), Asia Braised Short Ribs, and Roasted Chicken and Fingerling Potato Hash all use island ingredients but could easily be made with ingredients local to your area. hai Chaowasaree, chef-owner of Chai’s Island Bistro in Aloha Tower Marketplace and founder of Singha Thai Cuisine in Waikïkï, recently released “The Island Bistro Cookbook” (Watermark Publishing, BooksHawaii. net, 808 587-7766, $32.50). The greatlooking book is filled with more than 90 recipes from Chai’s award-winning restaurants. Many dishes are accompanied by Rae Huo’s photos that may make you want to grab the food right off the page and eat it! Chai’s cuisine is a fusion of his Thai heritage and a variety of elements from Hawai‘i and other parts of the Pacific Rim.

Poi, My Boy, will make a man of you This phrase from the song “Poi, My Boy” (words by Jay Kauka and music by Alvin Kaleolani Isaacs) describes how Hawaiians feel about their poi, the light-purple “pudding” made from the cooked root of the kalo (taro) plant. Kalo root was cooked in the imu (underground oven) then mashed with a stone poi pounder. The mashed kalo was mixed with water to create the consistency of poi desired. The staple food of the early Hawaiian diet, poi is very nutritious and a good source of fiber, vitamins and minerals.

E asy H awaiian R ecipes ~ Lü‘au Food ~

W

e hope you had a chance to try at least one of the many lü‘au here in Hawai‘i. Along with the many enjoyable memories of your trip, here are three easy lü‘au dishes you can try at home. Just imagine yourself back at that the special lü‘au — enjoying your pictures, fond memories and wonderful dishes as well. It’s time to kau kau (Pidgin English for “eat”)! Now here’s a dish that’s considered truly Hawaiian, although it could not have existed in ancient times. No salmon in those days, and no tomatoes. Both these ingredients came to Hawai‘i with Western contacts. What is traditional about this dish is the preparation technique — lomi (or lomilomi), which is Hawaiian for press, crush, or massage. The idea is to massage the meat, to rub in flavor and tenderize, while removing some of the salt.

Lomi Salmon yield: 4–6 servings

• 1⁄2 pound salted salmon • 5 large ripe tomatoes, diced • 1 cup chopped green onion • 1 medium onion, finely chopped • 1 cup crushed or shaved ice Soak salmon in water for 3–4 hours; rinse well. Remove skin and bones; shred salmon into a bowl. Add tomatoes and onions; lomi or kneed until mixed well. Chill thoroughly and add ice just before serving. Great with poi (mashed taro)! Tip: To make your own salted salmon, sprinkle a piece of salmon with sea salt. Lomi (massage) salt into the fish and refrigerate overnight. The fish will cure and take on a salty flavor. Lox may be substituted for salted salmon in a bind. Recipe and photo from “What Hawai‘i Likes to Eat,” by Muriel Miura and Betty Shimabukuro. Mutual Publishing, MutualPublishing.com.

Shoyu Chicken yield: 3–4 servings

• 6 chicken thighs, with bone and skin • 1⁄2 cup sugar • 1⁄2 cup soy sauce • 1 clove garlic (optional) • 1-inch piece ginger, grated (optional) Place all ingredients in pot; bring to boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer for about 30 to 40 minutes. Suggestion: Serve with rice, corn, and a vegetable salad for a satisfying local dinner. Recipe from “Jean Hee’s Best of the Best Hawai‘i Recipes,” by Jean Watanabe Hee. Mutual Publishing, MutualPublishing.com.

Be grateful you don’t have to make this haupia the old way, using Polynesian arrowroot that had to be grated, soaked, strained, reduced to a paste, and dried, then pounded into a powder. A lot of work for coconut pudding. These days we have cornstarch, which makes everything easier.

Haupia (coconut pudding) yield: 16 pieces

• 1⁄3 cup sugar • 1⁄3 cup cornstarch • 1⁄8 teaspoon salt • 2 1⁄2 cups coconut milk Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt; stir in coconut milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Pour into an 8–inch square pan; let cool; refrigerate until firm. Cut into 2x2 inch pieces and serve on ti leaves, if desired.

hat’s the recipe for Honolulu’s Chinatown? Stir in a bit of San Francisco, add two scoops of New York’s SoHo district and mix it all up with a multi-ethnic sauce. The best description is “delicious” when you walk Hotel, Maunakea, Smith and Pauahi streets. Chinatown’s famous gum shoe detective, Charlie Chan, would be over a hundred by now. Guaranteed, he wouldn’t recognize much. On his “hangout” Hotel Street, Maria Bonita’s (#1) has art and enchiladas and the convenience of being next door to that icon of Chinatown history, Smith’s Union Bar (#1).

May Day is

Lei Day T

he first of May is known as Lei Day in Hawai‘i. The tradition began in 1927 after a suggestion by poet Don Blanding that Hawai‘i should have a day set aside to celebrate the practice of making, giving and receiving lei. Newspaper columnist Grace Tower Warren suggested that day should be May Day and coined the phrase “May Day is Lei Day.” Leonard “Red” and Ruth Hawk composed the song “May Day is Lei Day in Hawai‘i,” which is probably played at every Lei Day celebration in the state. Honolulu’s first Lei Queen was crowned in 1928, the second year of the event. Earlier Lei Day festivities were held in downtown Honolulu and later in Honolulu Hale (our city hall). When it got too large, the celebration was moved to Queen Kapi‘olani Regional Park and Bandstand, across from the Honolulu Zoo, where you will find the color and pageantry of the 84th Annual Lei Day Celebration scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 1. The City and County 2010 Lei Queen Jamie Kaohulani of Honolulu’s free event gets underway at 9 a.m. Detwiler. Wayne Shinbara photos. with a performance by the Royal Hawaiian Band. The Investiture Ceremony with the introduction and crowning of the 2011 Lei Day Queen follows. Around noon, the Lei Queen views the Lei Contest Exhibit which is then open to the public until 5:30 p.m. Meanwhile, a number of hula hälau and musical groups perform in the Bandstand until 5 p.m. There are food vendors and exhibits and demonstrations of lei making and other Hawaiian crafts in the park from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Members of the Hawaiian Steel Guitar Association play sweet Hawaiian music from about 1 to 4 p.m. in a tent near the lei exhibit.

The 176-foot vessel now rests on the ocean floor serving as a giant “condominium” for schools of fish. Additional homes for marine life were created when man-made reefs were submerged off Waikïkï Beach. These structures enhance the ecological impact of the natural reef and create one of Hawai‘i’s most spectacular dive sites. Since the introduction of the artificial reefs, marine life has been multiplied thousands of times! tlantis Submarines has completed more than 100,000 dives since the launching of its first vessel. Other passenger submarine companies come and go while Atlantis Submarines continues to lead the field in technology and popularity. Now you can stretch your vacation dollars with the Atlantis Combo.

Punchbowl Cemetery

he National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific and the Honolulu Memorial (top photo) are set in an extinct volcano, Püowaina Crater, that residents call Punchbowl. Among the first remains to be interred there on Jan. 4, 1949, were 776 casualties from the Dec. 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor. The cemetery has no burial space available but can still accommodate cremated remains. The impressive Honolulu Memorial on the northwest wall of the crater was dedicated on May 1, 1966. It honors the achieve­ments of American Armed Forces in the Pacific during World War II, the Korean Conflict and the Vietnam Conflict. Park your vehicle behind the Memorial and explore the map galleries (above) and the ten “Courts of the Missing.” From the back of the Honolulu Memorial, walk towards the ocean on the Outer Drive and follow the “Memorial Walk” (right) up to the overlook area. You’ll be rewarded with one of the best views of busy downtown Honolulu and most of the south shore — from Diamond Head to ‘Ewa. The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. from Sept. 30 through March 1 and until 6:30 p.m. from March 2 through Sept. 29.

Downtown Honolulu

I

n case you’re wondering, what we call downtown is the government and financial district around Honolulu Harbor, near Aloha Tower. It’s easy to reach by city bus, TheBus routes 19, 20 and others (see page 61). Downtown Honolulu is a comfortable blend of the old, ‘Iolani Palace, and the newer and taller office buildings and condos in the neighborhood. Our bankers, lawyers and business­people are bustling about in dressier island wear; the traditional Chinatown merchants are selling goods with Oriental zest aside their new, artsy neighbors; the lei sellers string floral fare with timeless serenity; and everyone seems to be having a good time. walking tour of our city should include Aloha Tower Marketplace, Chinatown, the Hawai‘i State Art Museum (open Tuesday through Saturday, call 808 586-0900), and the Capitol District. Tours of historic ‘Iolani Palace are available Monday through Saturday, call 808 538-1471 for recorded information and 522-0832 for reservations. Across the street is the striking statue of King Kamehameha I (top photo). Further down King Street is City Hall (Honolulu Hale), Kawaiaha‘o Church (left), and Mission Houses Museum (below), open Tuesday–Sunday, call 808 531-0481.

Battleship Missouri Memorial On

January

29,

1944,

America introduced its newest battleship, the USS Missouri, to the world. Now, over six decades later, the USS Missouri is open to the public as one of Hawai‘i’s most popular visitor attractions.

O

n January 29, 1944, America’s last battleship, the Missouri, launched from Brooklyn Navy Yard into a war-torn world. Today in Pearl Harbor, the three-football-field-long floating fortress is open to visitor tours as the Battleship Missouri Memorial, one of Hawai‘i’s most popular and imposing historic attractions. The “Mighty Mo,” now decommissioned, is an American icon, simultaneously serving as a symbol of strength and peace. On Sept. 2, 1945, in Tokyo Bay, U.S. General Douglas MacArthur accepted Japan’s unconditional surrender aboard the USS Missouri, thus ending the War in the Pacific. Now berthed on Battleship Row, this magnificent vessel provides a fascinating, interactive, educational experience back through time. With her trademark 16-inch guns, the 887-foot Missouri served the United States in WWII, Korea and the first Gulf War. Following her final decommissioning in the early 1990s, she completed her final journey, arriving in Pearl Harbor in 1998 to stand watch over her fallen comrade, the USS Arizona, located a mere ship’s length away. Following a historic, multimillion-dollar maintenance and preservation effort, the Battleship Missouri returned to Battleship Row last year. Since its return, the Battleship Missouri Memorial is offering many enhanced visitor, special event and educational experiences, including new tours and pricing. The “Mighty Mo Pass” lets you choose from one of the following exciting experiences: the Mighty Mo Tour (a 35-minute guided tour), Acoustiguide Tour, Guide2Go iPod Tour, and, you are welcome to explore the ship at your leisure along a variety of marked walking-tour routes. The Battle Stations Tour (for an additional fee), is the most comprehensive of the tour options, focusing on some of the most important aspects of life at sea. Capacity and age restrictions apply and reservations are recommended. The “Mighty Mo Pass” is $20/adult and $10/child (ages 4-12) and includes choice of one of three tours. Operating hours are now 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For information, call 808 973-2494 or visit USSMissouri.org.

Every Sunday farmers and vendors selling fresh produce and delicious food products at the Hale‘iwa Farmers Market.

Hawaiian Islands Disentanglement Network Coordinated by David Mattila and Ed Lyman of the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, the Hawaiian Islands Disentanglement Network operates under the authorization of the Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program (MMHSRP Permit #932-1489-08) issued by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Since 2002, the network has mounted dozens of on-water responses to entangled whales. About a dozen animals have been freed of all or significant amounts of gear, some have been assessed as not having life-threatening entanglements, and others have been unsuccessful efforts or the animals were never relocated. Here is a report on a successful rescue in late 2009. On Dec. 1, 2009, the disentanglement network received a report from a Pacific Whale Foundation vessel that a young whale (foreground) traveling with its mother and an adult male off the coast of Lahaina, Maui, had heavy gauge yellow rope that was caught on both sides of the its mouth, wrapped around its head, and trailing hundreds of feet behind. After responding and assessing the situation, the rescue team determined the whale’s life was in danger but ocean conditions were too rough for a rescue attempt. A buoy was attached to the trailing line so they could keep track of the whale. Finally, on Dec. 6, 2009, the team of Ed Lyman, David Schofield and David Nichols in an inflatable boat was able to cut the ropes completely off the whale with a knife on a long pole. The action during the five-hour rescue mission 25 miles south of O‘ahu can be seen in the screen shot above from the helmet camera on Nichols and in the photo below. The top photo, from a 2007 sighting, was acquired under the authority of NOAA Fisheries MMHSRP permit #932-1489. All others are under HIHWNMS/NOAA Fisheries MMHSRP permit # 932-1905.

The new book “Historic Photos of Honolulu” with text and captions by Clifford Kapono is a wonderful collection of scenes of Honolulu and Waikïkï from the mid-19th to the mid-20th centuries. (ISBN: 9781596524996; $39.95. It is part of the “Historic Photos of…” series from Turner Publishing Company, 1800-788-3350, TurnerPublishing.com.)

“T

hese oneman fishing canoes, seen around 1922, have the traditional Hawaiian Outrigger design that includes a round hull for quick turning — making for a handy fishing vessel along the rugged coast and a great surfing canoe for open-ocean fishing.” In the 2010 photo above, Keahiakahoe Canoe Club paddlers carry their racing canoe onto Waikïkï Beach.

“T

he coronation of King Kaläkaua and Queen Kapi‘olani on February 12, 1883, nine years into Kaläkaua’s reign, was a significant departure from the ceremonies traditionally attending accession to the royal throne of the Kingdom of Hawai‘i. The structure seen here, the Coronation Pavilion, was built for this event that melded European formalities such as a coronation ball and state dinner with Hawaiian traditions such as hula dancing and a lü‘au.” In that same pavilion on December 6, 2010, Neil Abercrombie became the seventh governor of the State of Hawai‘i.

a

loha and welcome to Hawai‘i’s beaches! To be safe in all seasons, beachgoers and ocean recreationalists should heed the following ocean-safety signs. But remember, not all beaches have signs or signs may be posted a little further down the beach than where you are. So, if you see an orange flag and a sign on a post—check it out! If in doubt, don’t go out! he ocean is never more inviting than in Hawai‘i, but don’t take it for granted. During winter months, the South Shore is generally calm as a lake while the North Shore has rougher surf and riptides. The opposite is true in summer. To be safe in all seasons, beachgoers should keep the following tips in mind. Pick a beach with a lifeguard. However, keep in mind that although there are lifeguards at many O‘ahu beaches, they can’t watch everyone all the time. They are usually on duty from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Some beaches may vary, call 808 922-3888. Ask A lifeguard or locals. Before going in examine the ocean. Is there anyone else in it?—if not, find out why! Study the waves, their frequency and size; look for currents and riptides. Ask a lifeguard about the conditions and which areas to avoid. For a daily update, call 808 922-3888 and press *51 or visit OceanSafety. soest.hawaii.edu/?i=oahu or is.gd/4KP7. Pay attention to signs posted on coastal areas. Ocean conditions can change radically in a short time. When possible, signs are posted to save you from harm! Signs may warn about large waves, undertows, slippery rocks, stinging jellyfish, and other hazards—but they can’t be everywhere. During rough ocean conditions, avoid the urge to pose in areas with waves breaking around you. Large waves have knocked people over and pulled them in. If you see someone in trouble, find a lifeguard or call 911 and report the location (see photo) and situation.

102 “Waikïkï Tiki” Art, History and Photographs

I

f you have been visiting Honolulu for a long time, “Waikïkï Tiki” by Phillip S. Roberts (Bess Press Inc., BessPress.com, 808 734-7159, $22.95) should bring back lots of fond memories of long-gone tiki bars and tiki culture. This is not about Hawaiian culture and the traditional art of ki‘i (tiki) carving, but rather an outstanding collection of photos, memorabilia, comments and remembrances about tikis used in buildings, restaurants, bars, as drink glasses, souvenirs, etc. After reading this, you’ll probably be looking for tikis around every corner of Waikïkï!

Box Jellyfish Advisory

Stinging box jellyfish often “invade” west and south shore beaches between 7 to 11 days after the full moon — around March 25 to 29 and April 25 to 29. The advisory is usually for Diamond Head, Hanauma Bay, Waikïkï, and Ala Moana beaches, but ocean conditions could bring jellyfish in on off-cycle days and/or to other beaches. For a daily report on beach conditions, call 808 922-3888. When box jellyfish are in the water, lifeguards will have this sign posted. Stay out of the water. If you are stung, seek assistance from a lifeguard and, if you have an allergic reaction, call 911. More information at 808jellyfish.com or waquarium.org/boxjelly-calendar.html.

Perhaps the world’s most famous beach, Waikïkï has been the backdrop for movies and the starting place for many a romance. A suntanner’s paradise, warm waters are perfect for snorkeling and surfing. Hanauma Bay. Situated in the crater of an ancient volcano, Hanauma Bay is a world-class snorkeling and scuba diving spot. The sea life here is protected by law and the fish are so tame that they will swim right up to you. About 20 minutes from Waikïkï. Waimänalo Beach. A great spot to learn how to bodysurf or boogie-board because of the small, gentle waves that roll in here. Also great for picnicking.

Usually calm and safe during summer. Waimea Bay. This is the site of the biggest rideable surf in the world. In the winter, the surf can reach heights of 40 feet. Usually calm and clear in summer. Hale‘iwa Beach Park. Just past Hale‘iwa Town on the North Shore, this park features a sandy beach, playing field, basketball courts, picnic tables, and restrooms. Mäkaha Beach. In O‘ahu’s laid-back Westside, Mäkaha is best known for its perfect winter surf. Usually calm during summer months. Spotlight’s O‘ahu Gold Magazine

Hanauma Bay

his marine sanctuary on the southeastern portion of O‘ahu is home to approximately 420 species of tropical reef fish. Known as one of Hawai‘i’s premier snorkeling spots, Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve is very popular with residents and visitors alike because of its clear and calm waters and sandy beach. The Hanauma Bay Marine Education Center in the upper area houses interactive exhibits, a gift shop and a small theatre where first-time visitors are required to view a seven-minute educational video that shows Hanauma Bay’s marine life and how to protect and care for the preserve. There are restrooms and a food concession in the upper lot. At beach level there is a snorkeling equipment concession, dressing rooms, restrooms and an information kiosk. Hanauma Bay is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. (until 7 p.m. in summer) Wednesday through Monday and closed all day Tuesday. It is open until 10 p.m. on the second Saturday in winter and the second and fourth Saturdays in summer. There is a parking fee of $1 per car and $7.50 admission fee per person 13 years and older. For details, call the information line at 808 396-4229 or visit HanaumaBayHawaii.org.

Atlantis Submarines Stewards of the Sea

Atlantis Submarines has adopted small quiet corners of Hawai‘i’s marine world, and for two decades has been sharing the message of, “Mälama ‘Äina/Mälama Kai (Care for the Land/Care for the Sea),” with our more than seven million guests to date. Our message is that we must all take personal responsibility for the stewardship of the land and sea and do what we can to help our planet be more sustainable.

A “Green” Submarine

Sharing Hawai‘i’s Marine World: Atlantis Submarines launched its U.S. operations with its Kona dive site in 1988. Atlantis opened its second Hawai‘i dive site (sixth worldwide) off Waikïkï in 1989 and added its third site off Lahaina a year later in 1991. Environmentally Friendly: Atlantis takes every precaution to ensure that its vessels are operating cleanly and safely to help preserve Hawai‘i’s fragile marine world. Clean Propulsion: Each Atlantis Submarine is a battery-powered, non-polluting vessel that emits nothing more than compressed air into the ocean. Careful Navigation: Atlantis maintains a safe distance above the delicate reef corals to prevent any damage to living creatures. Our submarines have two stern thrusters, two vertical thrusters, and one at the bow to ensure careful maneuvering. Federally Certified: The submarines used by Atlantis are U.S. Coast Guard approved American Bureau of Shipping Class A1 man­ned submersibles.

Makapu‘u Lighthouse Trail

In Ka Iwi State Scenic Shoreline Park Located on the eastern tip of O‘ahu, the Ka Iwi State Scenic Shoreline is part of the undeveloped coastline that stretches from Hanauma Bay to Waimänalo. Access to the park is from Kalaniana‘ole End of paved trail Highway (see map Lookouts on page 72, C-26), about a half mile past the Hawaii Kai Golf Course. There is no entrance fee, but a parking fee is expected soon. The parking lot is open from 7 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. from September through March and until 7:45 p.m. from April through August, but check signs to be sure. The one-mile trail to the lookouts above the Makapu‘u Lighthouse is paved until the area just before the lookouts. It is an old access road and full of potholes, and the unpaved path to the lookouts is full of loose rocks, so watch your footing. The trail has some steep inclines, you may want to pause and take pictures often. A leisurely round trip could take 90 minutes to two hours. There are no restrooms, water or shade along the way, so prepare accordingly. Access to the lighthouse itself is restricted. Stay on the main road and don’t go beyond the fences. As you get above the parking lot, the view on the right (west) includes Sandy Beach and Koko Crater. From higher up the trail and looking east, you may see the islands of Moloka‘i and Läna‘i on the horizon on a clear day. The area is usually very dry, but prickly pear cactus, night-blooming cereus and tiny, orange ‘ilima blossoms, the official flower of O‘ahu (right), can often be seen along the trail. From November through May, watch the ocean for humpback whales frolicking in the deeper waters. When leaving, take a right from the parking lot and turn into the next parking lot for the Makapu‘u Lookout. It has a view (below) similar to the one at the top of the trail, so if you don’t have time to do the hike, stop here for photos. For more information, go to HawaiiStateParks.org.

What’s A Loco Moco? The Loco Moco is a local fast-food item original concocted in Hilo in 1949. What is it? Well, take a fried egg (or two) and a hamburger patty (or two), plop them on a mound of rice, smother it with brown gravy and you have a traditional Loco Moco. Many local eateries claim to have the best Loco Moco and even a few mainland franchises have their own versions on island menus, so give it a try!

When Protestant missionaries arrived in the islands in the 1820s, they determined that Hawaiian women needed to cover their bodies. The Victorian-style Mother Hubbard dress, floor-length and loose fitting with a high neck and long sleeves, was the garment of choice. The Mother Hubbard was called holokü by the Hawaiians. When shorter length garments, minus the sleeves and high neck, were designed, they were called mu‘umu‘u, the Hawaiian word for cut off or shortened.
