The Spinner Dolphins have been spotted all over Maaalea Bay this week. They have visited the Maui Magic in La Perouse and the South Maui Coast and both the Four Winds and the Maui Magic got a chance to hang out with them just outside of Molokni Crater this morning. It’s been beautiful weather in beautiful Maui so come on out a play in the water with us! Check out our websites, www.mauiclassiccharters.com and www.fourwindsmaui.com to make a reservation!
We love snorkeling at Olowalu on both the Four Winds and the Maui Magic. The Four Winds visits this particular spot when the weather conditions are right on our afternoon snorkel. The Maui Magic makes it there occassionally for their second spot on the morning excursion. When it’s clear like this, it’s absolutley phenominal and there are always heaps of turtles!
Both the Four Winds II and the Maui Magic came across a massive pod of about 70 spinner dolphins on Wednesday’s trips. They were cruising the bay from Molokini Crater all the way along the south Maui coast. It was an amazing sight to see!
Check out this whale breach from Thursday’s trip on the Maui Magic!
There are also some great whale photos from our Wed. & Thurs. trips on our Maui Magic Dolphin Discovery Facebook Page and more fun things on our Four Winds II Maui Snorkel Snorkeling at Molokini Facebook Pages.
We are having so much fun in Maui!
On our way to our 2nd snorkel spot on the Maui Magic, we came across a competition pod of Humpback Whales in the middle of Maalaea Bay. I was able to snap a shot of one of the males doing a head lunge onto another male whale. Amazing sight to see!
It has been amazing weather this week in Maui! Our visibility in Molokini Crater was 150+ feet. We also snorkeled at La Perouse, Turtle Arches, and Coral Gardens between the Four Winds II and Maui Magic with amazing conditions. Our temperatures are hanging around 80 degrees, the sun is shining, the humpback whales and dolphins are playing all over Maalaea Bay…..are you ready to book your vacation yet?
As 2011 comes to a close, I find myself excited and ready for 2012 and what it will bring! It’s always wonderful starting off the year with the Humpback Whales, beautiful weather, unbelievable snorkeling, and all around happy people!
Hau’oli Makahiki Hou!
