We started the week off with some surfing. This was probably one of my most favorite activities that we did. We took a surfing lesson and then after the lesson they allowed us to keep the board for the rest of the day. I was able to get up a few times all by myself!
The following day we did a snorkeling adventure. We went with a group called Blue Water Rafting and did the full excursion which took us to Molokini to snorkel and also the Kanaio Caves. This was the only snorkeling company that would take people to the Kanaio Caves. I can see why because the water was so rough the closer we got to the caves. It's a good thing I took some Dramamine before we left otherwise I would have been sea sick. I did enjoy going over the super big waves. It was almost like we were on a roller coaster. We were also able to see some spinner dolphins along the way, which was an added bonus to our trip. The tour guides told us that you don't always see them. After we left the caves they took us to Molokini to do some snorkeling. J was always the first one out of the boat and the last one in. He loved snorkeling!! He said he could have snorkeled all day long. After we finished at Molokini they took us to a place called Turtle Town. It was so neat swimming next to the giant sea turtles.
Here are just some random pictures of the view from our balcony.
We ate a ton of Hawaiin Shave Ice! We also ate a few times at a taco truck in Kihei. They were the most delicious tacos we had ever tasted. We stayed at Kannapali Beach which was about an hour from Kihei. It's too bad we weren't closer because we probably would have eaten there every night. We are eating shave ice at Ululani's which is the best place to get delicious shave ice in Hawaii.
We also did some walking around a town called Lahaina. They had a lot of really fun shops and really good places to eat. They also had the oldest Banyon tree on the island of Maui.
Another highlight from our trip was going to a magic/comedy show called Warren and Annabelle's. It's another activity I would highly recommend adults doing while in Maui. Our friends recommended we do this, and I'm so glad they did. We were chosen as one of the couples to sit at the front and get picked on. I was nervous, but it turned out great!
I was called up in front of everyone and I helped him with a magic trick!
