on 29 June Rocky the female monk seal gave birth to a pup at popular Kaimana Beach. At the zoo end of Waikiki and next door to the Outrigger canoe club many people use this beach year round.
However, because of the mom and pup activity fewer people are in the water.
An area is cordoned off as a no people zone, but paddleboarders, surfers and canoes are out in the ocean.
Hawaiian monk seals are an endangered species and the only warm water seals.

Surprisingly this is still an accurate portrayal of the island of Hawaii. Wonderful shots and great narrative from Don Blanding.
Enjoy, it is a bit long but worth every bit of it.
