On Saturday, March 17, 2007 Kawika launched his boat in Eureka, California. When he did not return that evening, the Coast Guard launched a search, finding his boat Sunday morning. Kawika’s camera was on board; Kawika and his dive gear were not. The Coast Guard continued the search until Monday evening. He has not been found. See more of his images HERE
