Guest Post by Michael: Snorkeling Boat Trip

getting ready to snorkel
While in Maui we went on a boat trip. We had to wake up at 6:30 in the morning.  We were going to two islands named Molokini and Lanai. When we were on the boat they gave us our fins and snorkel masks, and they served us breakfast such as banana bread with fruit.  Maui has very good banana bread because it has more chocolate chips and the bananas are sweet and delicious. It was a 30 minute ride on a big catamaran called Ocean Voyager to Molokini.

When we got to Molokini, there was a slide to go into the water. I was first in line to get in the water. The water felt really cold when I first went in. We all snorkeled for 30 minutes before we got out. I saw many beautiful fish. My favorite fish was the humuhumunukunukuapua'a which is the state fish. After, we were planning to go to the island Lanai. When we were going to Lanai we saw flying fish. In the middle of our boat trip, the captain said that it wasn't safe to go to Lanai because it was too windy and he rode us to a bay for more snorkeling. We didn't see that much fish but we did see 1 turtle and 4 reef shark tails. After everyone was out of the water, the kids on the boat all played around and went down the slide. I was the person that went and refilled the bucket in the ocean and poured it down on the slide to make the slide very slippery. The day was really fun even though we didn't go to Lanai.

  1. I love the humuhumunukunukuapua fish too!!! I'm just kidding, I've never heard of it. But I can't wait to hear you try to pronounce it! Glad you had fun snorkeling. You look good in that wetsuit! Love you lots,


  2. Oh, looks like a great time. I can't wait to hear more about. Missing you guys.

  3. Dear Michael,
    I am glad you had a great time, unfortunately the vacation came to an end, you will remember this time by looking at the pictures. You made beautiful pictures, like a professional photographer.
    We miss you all so much and can't wait to see you and hug you.
    When you will come back I will ask to pronounce the name of this fish humuhumunukunukuapua so you may start practicing while on the plane.
    Love you,
    Grandma Tanya and Grandpa Eugene
