One day out of the week, we cruise across the Au’Au Channel between Maui and Lana’i to explore the unique and infrequently visited Pineapple Island.
This week we sailed to the northern cliffs of Molokai, a place that few of the crew have ever seen, let alone the guests.
It started with two whales coming close to the ship. This is nothing very out of the ordinary – it happens often. What happened next was the surprise.
We made our way to our snorkel spot. Minutes into our ride, we heard an exciting radio call from our expedition leader in the skiff in front of us.
As we back paddled from the magnificent creatures, I couldn’t help but yell in excitement, “this is a once in a lifetime experience!”
