Eh concierge! With all the wonderful things to do on Maui, did you really have to tell visitors where the sea turtles haul-up? Is nothing sacred? Sure, you’ll get better tips, but at what cost? The sea turtles have it hard enough. They are not here solely for our entertainment. They’re trying to rest. And if you must direct someone there, please emphasize that it’s not okay to approach or harass the turtles or blind them with flashlights at night (by the way, please don’t send them there at night). Believe me, you’ll sleep better with a good conscience for caring about our precious, dwindling marine life. Please act like you care.
