    Kawika was both a brilliant engineer and a renowned underwater photographer. He was fond of solo diving in pursuit of his photography, and he was diving by himself when he disappeared. The Coast Guard searched for him for three days, as far as 40 miles offshore.

    Gotta love that photo with the harbor seal looking over his shoulder.

    It seems probable his remains will never be recovered.

    Gorgeous photos! I wonder what happened. Did get stuck underwater or? At least he is not a victim of the marijuana industry.
