Join us October 28th and 29th for a weekend of excitement at Kohala Divers. We will be hosting local diver and author James Sturz.

James has covered the underwater world for The AtlanticThe Wall Street JournalThe New York Times and The New York Times MagazineOutside and Men’s Journal, among many publications.

His recent work is a book called Underjungle

Underjungle asks readers to give themselves up to another world: to step outside not just of themselves, but of their species. A broad metaphysical story of fantastical world-building from accomplished journalist and nature writer James Sturz. Underjungle is a lyrical tale of love and war, encompassing the marine environment, science, art, philosophy and grief—as deep and surprising as life on the seafloor, where much of this story is set.

Buoyed by humor and tinged with the unshakeable melancholy of loss is the existential question that forever ties the novel to our human experience: what is our purpose?
