We went on a catamaran ride the other day to Molokini which is a small island formed from a volcano crater near Maui. The Captain was kind enough to let me steer the catamaran for a little while :)
Had a blast snorkeling and seeing some colorful sea life. A honu (sea turtle) swam right underneath me. It was just amazing. It was almost surreal to swim amongst the fish.
Even when you weren't in the water, you were able to see the sealife. The water was so clear.
The ride was was a ton of fun. It was so nice on the way to Molokini, we were able to raise the sails and sail most of the way there. The way back to Maui was a little rough, kind of like a roller coaster ride and was totally fun. I was totally soaked from the ride. It was blast for several of the family. Unfortunately, it wasn't that great for all. Some in our group weren't feeling so great when the ride was rough. But mother nature decided to give us some large swells and windy weather so there really wasn't much we could do about that. All in all this was a really fun excursion.
