Hawaii – November 2018 – Day 13 Hanging Out with Dolphins and Whales

Day 13 was a relaxing day with some morning kayaking and an afternoon of playing in the ocean.

First up – the dolphins

While it is a bit early in the season for whales to be in Hawaii we did spot one who gave us a glimpse of his/her tail.

As we made our way along the Lahania Roads area between Maui, Lanai and Molokai, we passed an island/rock known as Kaho’olawe. The small round cave like openings are really pock marks where the US military used i to practice bombing.

Fortunately this practice ended years ago.

The rocky surface provides great contrast with the green landscape of Maui.

The afternoon was spent playing in the ocean,

including the crew providing wake board rides with the skiff.

Notice the giant cruise ship in the distance. No wake boards rides off the back of it.

As with the trip to Alaska, the crew and fellow guests are the best part of the ”Uncruise’ Experience. While the guests come from various backgrounds and are various ages (mostly 50+, but not all), they seem to have a sense of adventure and respect of nature in common, which makes the trip more fun.

Both trips we have had have featured great crews who know a lot about nature, and their jobs, and strive to do their jobs with a great approach, and always a focus on safety (but not so much you don’t have fun).

Here’s to my fellow travelers and the Safari Explorer crew!

Tomorrow is our final day already.
