I was dying not having my dslr with me on this excursion! I didn't get very good pictures but oh well. This was the mama whale. I wasn't able to snap any pictures of the baby.
This is a really bad picture :) The crater is in the background.
You could see 150-180 feet in every direction underneath this water!
I forgot to take a close up picture of Molokini, but here's a shot from far away :)
After snorkeling at Molokini we headed to a spot they call Turtle Town. The water was barely warmer here so I was totally hesitant to get in. I finally jumped in with just a few minutes left to snorkel. I started swimming to find Eric when I saw a shark swimming towards the surface of the water! Ha ha, I freaked out until I realized it was actually a turtle :) Everyone crowded around the turtle so it swam right at ME to come up for air! I was a little nervous because you get a big, fat $10,000 fine if you touch a turtle! But it was so cool to be so close to the turtle. It paid off to wait so long to get into the water :)
After Turtle Town we ate some lunch, and then they took us for a ride along the coast of Maui. We were hoping to see dolphins but no dice. We did see more turtles though!
Acne is so cute.
Can you spot the turtle here?
And here? Sorry again for the crappy pictures! No dslr :(
It really was an amazing day filled with gorgeous underwater life and great weather! Of course the perfect way to end the day was having a flat tire on the rental :) Good thing I married a handy man! We may have dropped the fudge bomb a time or two..... A Christmas Story anyone??
