I had been waiting for the right time to take my son on his first whale watch boat trip. He just turned 5 last week. It was time.
These days, at any given moment on Maui, you can glance at the ocean and see a spout or splash. Whale season is in full effect. They are everywhere and the population keeps growing. Some like to refer to it as Whale Soup. I refer to it as Pali Traffic. Heehee.
I still get excited every time I see a whale.
We spotted our first whale seconds after we left the harbor.
I was eager to see the gentle giants of the sea, but I was equally stoked on the more than impressive views of Maui from the ocean. The Pali looks like what I would imagine the coast of Ireland to resemble.
It was very wet and windy, but non-the-less, it was a great date day with my little man.
