Default Box jellyfish/Portuguese man-of-war

A recent thread about beaches on Oahu leads to a mention of Portuguese man-of-war which they and the Box jellyfish tend to wash up on south Oahu shores 10 days after a full moon (which was last night). Granted it took a while for someone to figure out that they do (washing up on shore) this every 28 or 29 days but has anyone figured out where they hang out the other days?

Also has any other island experience this as well? I don't remember anything like this has happened on Kauai when I was growing up in the 1970's.
