A Whale of a Boat Ride

(The Pacific Ocean) – People kept talking about the whales. “You have to see the whales!” Before we left home, we were told to see the whales. As we arrived, while making final approach into the Maui airport, some people were looking out of the windows declaring that they had seen whales. So, we went to see the whales!

North Pacific humpbacks, to be specific, are here in the south for warm water and reproduction.
This leads to some pretty exciting whale watching.

We were on a catamaran during the hours before sunset. The boat ride, with the requisite mai-tais, was nice on its own with plenty of photo opportunities.

But close encounters with the whales: that was something special.

If you come here, you have to see the whales.
