Humpback Whales Video

Here is the awesome video that my brother-in-law captured of the two whales that were swimming around our boat. Sorry about the screaming but everyone was freaking out :) You have to watch the whole video because the end is the best part.

When in Maui

Just this last week, James and I were able to visit his Papa in Maui to celebrate his 80th birthday. It was a fun fun family trip and I was not ready to go home. 

For his birthday party we took a private charter boat out to go whale watching. 

I had been whale watching before and it was fun... but this whale watching trip ended up to be an amazing experience! We had two humpback whales that swam right up to our boat!! They were swimming around and under our boat for about an hour. Everyone was going crazy and running around the boat, videoing and taking pictures. It was definitely a once in a life time experience.

The captain said that this NEVER happens and that this was one of his best whale watching experiences. We all felt very lucky to be able to share this unique experience.
