Jumping for Joy!

I had the opportunity to go whale watching this week in Maui, and it was so nice to get out on the water.  The whales were ever-present and we saw several competition pods, and a few mother calf and escorts.  On the boat was Lisa Walker and Oriana Kalama and they recording singing, as well as trying to get some fluke shots.  Towards the end of the day we found ourselves near Lahaina, observing this whale breach.


I think it was jumping for joy, but perhaps the whale just wanted to see Lahaina….

Whales love Maui!

Whales love Maui!

While I love whale watching in Hawaii, it makes me think of how lucky I am to be able to go to Tonga each season and legally swim with Humpback whales.
