The White House is taking extra steps to prevent photos of a shirtless President Obama on vacation in Hawaii.
The president and his family are on a snorkeling trip in the Hanauma Bay Nature Reserve, and traveling press are under “explicit instructions that there will be no long lenses or other sneaky attempts to take pictures,” according to a pool report.
But pictures aren’t likely to come out of Tuesday’s trip to the beach. “All you folks who wanted shirtless pictures of the president: Forget it,” writes The New York Times’s Sheryl Stolberg in her pool report.

The pool report states that the Obama party will be at the park for two hours.
The park is closed on Tuesdays for maintenance, according to a corrected pool report, but has been opened for the president’s small party.
