Lobsters and Cameras


 We saw three lobsters, lots of fish, and quite a few people with cameras on this morning's ocean swim.

 The Maui Pink Cap Swimmers had crazy, wild water conditions for their ocean swim on Sunday.

Underneath the surface, however, all was calm and nice.

I Choose Both


It is the middle of February so the choice is either a pleasant day at the beach or a whale watching cruise. I choose both.

Dancing with a Manta Ray


 I love it when a wild sea creature chooses to interact with me. Mammals are the most likely to show an interest in me, but sometimes Rays do as well.

This morning two Manta Rays swam by underneath me before one of them swam up toward me. It showed its underside and swam around me three times, close enough to touch. Yes, I was nervous, but also thrilled.


It didn't seem to mind me swimming along with it for the next half hour and even came back up for another dance.

Waves and Castle


Some fun waves were rolling in along Maui's south shore this morning. They certainly did not stop people from going out into the ocean.

This was the most elaborate sand castle I have ever seen on Maui.

 I've said it before and I'll say it again (and again, and again), while I love swimming with dolphins, I love swimming with Maui's mermaids even more.

And today I got to swim with both!

While I expected to see the mermaids, the dolphins were a complete surprise when they swam up to meet us.
