Thanks SargonR, didn't realize there were more pictures when you click on the picture.
I would guess stout moray based on the shape of the head + coloring. Stout Morays come in many colors, but the other species around Hawaii don't come in this color! Check my reference.
I think you're correct Ava T-B, there are several types though and I'm not sure if this is a Snowflake Moray. Hoping someone can help identify the subfamily.
I think this is a Moray Eel http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moray_eel
