Choppy Waters


A brisk south wind was blowing and I wasn't sure I wanted to brave the choppy ocean waters this morning. But I'm glad I did.

I saw lots of fishies, a green sea turtle, and even a young monk seal which seemed to be sound asleep.

Old Guys


 The Old Guys were out riding head-high waves this morning along the south Maui shore. There was a fair amount of waiting between sets, but they seemed to be enjoying themselves when one did roll in.

 This morning Maui's Mermaids were joined by a friendly and playful group of Spinner Dolphins who would not leave us alone.

Finally, we managed to sneak away while they weren't looking.

Pink Caps




Another perfect morning for the Maui Pink Cap swimmers today.

I was surprised that we didn't see any large critters, but there were lots and lots of fishies as usual.

And don't worry, I haven't forgotten the large crew that went to Lanai yesterday. I will post those photographs sometime Monday.

Gray and Lovely


Stand-up paddling is often a family affair with children and pets along for the ride.

Some Agave plants have more personality than others.

This morning started off gray and lovely, before becoming sunny and lovely.

Maui's Mermaids do not disappoint. This morning we saw multiple Nudibranchs, one shy White-Tip Reef Shark, a big Spotted Eagle Ray, and lots and lots of fishies of all kinds.
