Maui Snorkeling Vacation 2014
The view was a little murky as we passed over Lake Oroville. Was this an omen for the trip?
Just a couple minutes after takeoff we returned to the Sacramento airport to have the plane checked out by mechanics because we hit a flock of starlings. Two hours later we were on our way to the Islands again.
Our first rainbow of the trip, we had not even checked in yet.
After our first morning snorkel at Honolua Bay.
Back at our reef. Our room was about a hundred yards from the ocean.
Storm surge reduced visibility this trip.
We ate at Star Noodle in Lahina twice.

Lush vegetation on our hike into Twin Falls.
Back at our reef.
The best visibiltiy of the trip was at Black Rock.
Not our best idea, we ended up having an epic swim around Black Rock. It was deep, choppy and the current was pretty strong.
Back on dry land.
Another sunset at Kaanapili.
Early morning snorkel at Kapalua Bay.
Time to retrieve the camera from the bottom.

Morning snorkel at Honolua Bay. We were the first in the water this day.

There was no visibility because of storm surge on our last morning at Kapalua Bay so we went for a hike.
The storm surge caused a little surf this year at Kaanapili.
Rainy canyons in the West Mountains on our last day.
After checking out we spent some time before catching our flight home at the Maui Ocean Center.
Last rainbow on of the trip.
