We got to see whales!!! When I went on the shark dive I got to see the back of 2 whales but they were very far away. Not the case this day, we saw dozens!!! The closest ones were just 30 yards or so away!!

Aww, aren't we adorable :)
The captain let Beau and Ali help "steer"
Sitting on daddy shoulder
Beau was looking for whales
Managed to catch one on film!
The sunset was amazing
Its safe to say Beau had a fabulous time!
Alex found the snacks
But we didn't just see them, we got to listen to them too! The captain had a nifty microphone that he placed in the water and we listened for about 10 minutes to the amazing sounds they make. Here's a video :)
The Whales migrate down here every winter to have their adorable babies, its estimated that close to 30,000 make Hawaii home over the winter months! You would think with those numbers I wouldn't feel so special getting to see a few...you would be wrong! It was amazing!
Once the sun set we brought the girls in and the captain turned on the "super duper bright red light" (that's a quote from Beau, not the captain)
Heres a special little clip of our awesome captain blowing the conch shell.
Trip of a lifetime!
