MAUI WHALES & MOLOKINI CRATER

Towboats brought us into the Maui harbor

There were three in this pod, all "blowing"

Probably my favorite shot of the whales

There were lots of windmills on the mainland, which would be very efficient since the wind blew constantly!

This was the day we went on our snorkel tour to Molikini Crater with the Pacific Whale Foundation. Even though the boat was rocking and moving, I was pleased with the shots of the humpbacks that I got from hundreds of yards away. Thankfully, my little camera has a 26X zoom and it allowed me to capture the memory!

I didn't take my underwater camera, so Larry will post all of the amazing shots he got of us swimming with green sea turtles and the most amazing fish - it was like snorkelling in an aquarium!

Lynda What a wonderful experience. I once went whale watching off Cape Cod and saw a mother and bay humpback. Magical.
