They're baaack!

Yesterday's calm Auau Channel (the 8 mile long, shallow waterway between West Maui, Molokoai and Lanai) provided ideal conditions for confirming that our pals from the Pacific Northwest are arriving for their winter holiday in Hawaii. Aloha, Humpbacks!

We excitedly proclaimed over each spout, high-fiving the fin slaps and tail waves. A breach and the synchronized spouting of three at once had us grabbing the binoculars to check if a calf was in the crowd.

Interestingly, yesterday was the first of the "No Parasails or Jet skis" season. Look who showed up to celebrate!
