Whale Watching in Maui

As mentioned in our previous post, we spent a lot of time looking out for whales while in Maui. We would be lying out by the pool or on the beach, and would hear "oohs" and "ahhs," and look up to see a whale breaching in the air. It was an amazing sight! It's unbelievable how close they come to the shoreline.

We went out on a whale watching boat one morning at sunrise. It was indescribably beautiful watching the sun rise over the islands. Zach got some great shots. Keep in mind, the whales were several yards away from our boat, due to regulations. We also went to a lookout near the ocean one afternoon and he got many more. If there are any really good ones, we'll post them later on.

Thanks to everyone for all your sweet comments also. We missed everyone while we were gone- especially our family and our church crowd! I can't wait for our Marriage Retreat coming up this weekend and to get back to singing in our choir this next Sunday! Zach and I have had so many people asking us to post photos from our trip on here and on Facebook. It means so much to him to know other people are enjoying his little hobby also. Enjoy!

Good shot of the whale's tail

Another breach! I love this one because of the colors of the sunrise reflecting off the whale's fins.

I think this one is my favorite of the whale pics so far. This shows the island of Linai'i in the background.
