Wet On Purpose


 Doug and I had a blast this morning hiking into the hills along the north shore with his brother and sister-in-law.

And the only time we intentionally got wet was when we actually wanted to - or at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Too Close for Comfort


 I was paddling to shore with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law this morning when two whales suddenly popped up between us. We were all taken completely by surprise. I stuck my camera over the side of the kayak while the closest whale carefully maneuvered its fluke to avoid hitting me. I was a bit scared and we were all thrilled by their unexpected appearance.

Three Humpback Whales


I paddled out to a group of kayaks this morning and proceeded to be repeatedly approached by three Humpback Whales. We were able to simply sit in place and be entertained for almost an hour.

I love living on Maui.

Deep Deep Deep


 Many of us were worried about poor water clarity this morning and several people chose not to swim. Indeed, conditions sucked until we got out deep, deep, deep and then it was glorious.

Spectator Sport


 Surf was up along the south shore this morning and both surfers and spectators were out in force.

I love living on Maui.

Putting on a Show


Two Humpback Whales were putting on a show for an entire flotilla (mostly at a respectful distance which is why they are not seen in these photos) of kayaks, outrigger canoes, and stand-up-paddlers.

38 Spinner Dolphins joined Maui's Mermaids for a swim this morning. What a treat - my favorite two creatures interacting with each other.

Click HERE for lots more photos of both dolphins and mermaids.
