Black Coral

Black coral is a much sought after sight on dives – as it is endangered, we never touch it, but it is always a delight to find. Black coral grows so slowly, and some have been around for thousands of years.  In Hawaii we have over 15 of the some 200 kinds of black corals, and ours includes some of the very oldest creatures on earth. These beautiful corals are normally found far below scuba depths but in Hawaii we do occasionally encounter them – often with a long nosed hawkfish as an occupant! Black coral is called ‘ēkaha kū moana in hawaiian, and is the offical state gem of Hawaii.
