Humpback Whales Back in Full Force in Maui

This morning I walked down to the pool deck for my morning cup of coffee (hint: on the beachwalk in front of Four Seasons Maui is Snorkels, a coffee shop that has the best cup in town)) and saw two whales playing about a hundred yeards offshore.  It was 71 degress at that hour, a cool clear morning and that plus the whales became another “I am so lucky to live in Maui” moment.

Later, I saw the captain of our canoe team, which takes guests out on the water in outrigger canoes for a full cultural experience, and he was excitedly talking how two different whales popped up to have a look at them.  The experience reminded him of an encounter last eyar, in which one of our guests captured this awesome video.
