At the south end of Maui, sailed on this boat from Makena Beach out to Molokini Crater for some great snorkeling.
Molokini crater from the air and a sample of what the fish and coral look like there. No, I didn't take these photos, but when we flew into Maui, we flew directly over the crater, what an amazing view!
January is humpback whale season in Hawaii. We did one whale watching tour and mostly saw this . . . the backs of many whales and this . . . the tales of many whales as they dove down to the depths.
But when we did the Molokini Crater trip, we saw even more whales and even some doing this.
Sunset from the beach, over the island of Lanai in the distance.
On Kauai, boat tour to the Na Pali coast. Up close and personal with sea caves and waves. The boat was amazingly close to the cliffs with waves crashing and spraying. So cool to see these huge caves and arches carved out of lava rocks by the sea. Too rough to snorkel here.
