Came across N17 out near the Kewalo Pipe while diving on 1/30/13. She was resting on the bottom in about 45 feet of water. Let us get photos then she swam off.

N6 was chillin on the beach at Three Tables beach today. Does anyone know what its name RSF stands for?

Donna said...

Hi Don!!!
RSF Right Spot Female
Back in the day... a lot of the seals were ID'd and named by their characteristics and frequent haul out spots....
example... rocky who is a female, when she was first seen on a regular basis had algae around her eyes like a raccoon... she was given the named rocky after the beatles tune rocky raccoon. Kermit was just GREEN like kermit the frog. "KC" stands for Kaaawa Critter... lots of history and fun stories. Thanks for asking.

We were gifted this morning with a sweet visit from KC (N14) in Kaaawa this morning. KC has been lolling on the beach and in the shallow waters all morning. WE are down near Kualoa. Is KC a boy or a girl? We would love any info at all on beautiful KC....

My kids and I went for a walk to the east of Turtle Bay Resort and came across N31 sunning on the beach. Unfortunately another family came along and harassed the poor animal to the point it went in the water. The seal seemed healthy with no obvious sores or injuries.
