Through the talented lens of underwater photographer John P. Hoover this book presents highlights of Hawaii’s underwater realm. See schools of golden yellow Tangs flowing over the reef, flowerlike corals, Sea Slugs of unbelievable color, Cleaner Shrimps grooming eels, strange nocturnal Lobsters and Frogfishes mimicking sponges. Meet Hawaii’s state fish the Humuhumu-nukunuku-apuaa and watch tiny hermit crabs fight over a shell. Marvel at the incredible camouflage of the Scorpionfish and chuckle at the comical faces of Pufferfish and Flounders. Whether snorkler, diver, or arm-chair traveler, you will enjoy the undersea paradise that is Hawaii.
