After a memorable day out on the water with a whale watching/snorkeling cruise, we returned in time to our resort to witness a spectacular sunset from our lanai. Eventually I went and took a dip in the refreshing waters of Kaanapali Beach to enjoy the sunset from there as well, but before I knew it, I noticed tons of people lining up along the shoreline while in the water. Sure enough, more whale sightings literally right off the coast! I quickly swam ashore, grabbed my cameras and snapped some more pictures. This may have been the closest I had gotten to a whale yet. What a sight!
