Whale watching off Kauai

​There be whales here!

Breach1

It was an early start to get to the whale watching tour – out the door at about 6:15 in order to get down to the launch set for 7:30.  We set sail (OK we motored) on the catamaran Lucky Lady for a tour of the Na Pali coast on what turned out to be an absolutely beautiful day.  Yesterday it rained off and on all day on Kauai, but Jerry picked the right day for this trip!

We saw several turtles, 3 bottlenose dolphins, a huge number of spinner dolphins, and lots of whales including several calves.  There was an option for snorkeling at the end but both Jerry and I opted out of that as the water was still pretty choppy and didn’t look to me like there was much to see.  The tour wrapped up around 1:30 and we headed back to house.

Tomorrow is a day without any specific plans so I get to sleep in!  Probably taking a short hike somewhere, but we shall see.
