Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology

23 October 2019

We took an interesting tour of of Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology housed on a small island in Kaneohe Bay.  Named after Princess Loe, it was later privately owned and doubled in size through dredging, which now provides pens for various marine animals. Distant views of the island were also used in the opening scenes for the TV series Gilligan's Island...
