Beautiful Maui

Black Sand Beach

Had a great time sailing, snorkeling, and hiking around the beautiful island of Maui. From what I’ve been told, it’s a much slower pace than Oʻahu which is the main tourist destination for Hawaii. The Valley Isle, Maui’s nickname, is covered in lush national park land which is perfect for hiking at almost any time of day.

I figured that this was about as close to being a pirate as I’ll ever get so there was no hesitation on my part. These guys do this 8-16 hours a day during the high season. That’s a lot of work and a lot of fun in the sun. In fact, the captain has been doing this for over 20 years.
