Glenn Poulain titled this image, “Honu Ascent,” and he’s giving it away. Join us tomorrow, January 22, 2013 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. HST on our OutriggerHawaii Facebook page, and one day soon this 20×30″ canvas print framed in Koa veneer might be hanging in your home.I’m always amazed at the clarity of Glenn’s underwater imagery. I’ll be asking him about that tomorrow during our Talk Story event. And, of course, I’m always interested in the story behind the image. So, I’ll be asking him if he remembers the events surrounding the capturing of this image. I have a dozen more questions in mind, but I’ll save them for Glenn. I hope you can join us, but if not, feel free to add your questions for Glenn below, and I’ll ask them for you.

“Lava Flow”

September 7th, 2012

Hawaii is a spectacular place!

Some of my most memorable adventures have occurred here on the islands of Hawaii.

I must say, to have the opportunity to have lived here over the past 14 years has been a blessing in so many ways.
Here is an example of what is possible in Hawaii if you have the time, patience and passion.

Here are a couple photographers that inspire me!

Inspiring photo’s, passion beyond belief,  life captured in the raw.

Photographers Nick Selway and CJ Kale

“Congratulations for your vision & love for the Hawaiian Islands”


Safe Journey to the both of you always,

Glenn Poulain

It’s not easy coming up with names to our images, especially our beloved “Honu”.  The name needs to reflect how the image makes you feel.

 Coming up with names can be almost impossible at times, that’s why I need your help.

“Manta Ray Heaven”

April 14th, 2012

Here’s a short video of  a “Manta Ray” dive off the shores of the “Big Island, Hawaii”, one of our favorite dives.  This past weekend in Kailua Kona, Big Island – on 4.9.12
we went out with a new  crew from Big Island Divers – I highly recommend this dive operation, first rate and professional for both the experienced diver and the recreational snorkeler.

If you have not done a dive such as this, you should.

Hawaii never fails to provide a fresh perspective of our “Mother Earth” … or


Papa (mother earth) and W?kea (father sky) were two of the most recognized Hawaiian ancestors. The union of Papa, worshipped as a primordial force of creation with the power to give life and to heal, and W?kea, worshipped as paternal sky, created and gave birth to the entire archipelago in the vast expanses. The name describes a fertile woman giving birth to a wide stretch of islands beneath a benevolent sky. (sic)

I would have to say, the majority of our (my wife & I) most incredible life experiences have been on the islands of Hawaii. Lava fields flowing, earth being created, the sea life  thriving with magical sounds as the dolphins pass by and the Hump Backs sing their songs of life… incredible.

I’m home ‘-)  We’re home – My wife Angie & I
