Whale Sighting at Sunset!

Kaanapali, HI, United States
0 Kudos
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!

Old Lahaina Luau
Old Lahaina Luau is an alternative to the expensive luau hosted at the Hyatt Regency.

Heard it's a really good show but very pricey at ~$115 per person. There are other luaus you can see elsewhere for far cheaper or even free (Lahaina Cannery Mall)


Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa
Stayed 8 nights at this resort on Kaanapali Beach. Loved the pool area.
