After spending only one night at McGregor, we headed north to Coral Gardens. We had heard the snorkeling rivalled Molokini, but upon arriving, we couldn’t find a sandy spot to drop our hook. So we moved on to Olowalu. We found a decent spot to drop our hook and enjoyed the anchorage very much. Shore access was easy and there was a store nearby to replenish our ice. The water was beautiful and we had a friendly turtle that kept us company. For the first time, we deployed our home-made flopper stopper; it really helped reduce the boats motion.
