Product description:


On the upper west side of Maui, Nakalele Blowhole is found as you make the drive past Kapalua heading towards Wailuku.

Caused by the ocean's erosion of the shore beneath the lava shelf, each incoming wave forces water through a hole in the lava, resulting in a geyser-like plume rising high into the air.

Since the force of the water depends on the tide and strength of the waves, strong surf and high tide bring the most dramatic results.

When the force is strong enough, the blowhole can be seen from the road above, but many adventurous visitors hike down the path for an "up close and personal" view of Mother Nature's awesome power!

The striking scene was captured by the lens of talented photographer Jake Skoda.
