Cool pictures

Which whale watching company did you use and were you happy with them?
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

Gemini. We had a fantastic time. I highly recommend them. We saw about 15-20 whales breaching and splashing their tails. We also saw a group of male whales chase a female whale.
(also serve beer, mix drinks and soda and non kosher food on the tour.)

You will get wet when getting on and off the boat (up to mid thigh) so plan accordingly with phones, wallets, and cameras. I would recommend bringing a small backpack to keep things in. Or a jacket with pockets.

I dont know of the pricing- we did time share tours for free whale watching tickets and luau tickets.

Sounds like they got a shidduch crisis.

Correct. The boat pulls up on the beach. The people from the boat tell you when to board to minimize wetness. It's not that bad. You leave your shoes by the hotel in a locked bin.

we went to the Hyatt luau and got the kosher steak and fish meals. Fish was good - steak smelt great but was as chewey as a flip flop.
This was from Oahu Kosher or Hyatt?

Luau food was from Hyatt - package said "Maui Kosher Catering" and had a hecksher tape wrapped around it.
