Seven-year-old Eli O. swam with a school of ‘oama’s while snorkeling at Ala Moana Beach. Thank you for sharing your story! 

Meeting the ‘oama!

I was trying out my new snorkel with my mom. We saw a bunch of fisherman along the beach and mom said the ‘oama must be running. Later I spotted a school of almost clear fish right near the shore. It was the ‘oama! We swam with them and one of them stopped and looked at us. I tried to catch it with my hand but it swam away.
