Crazy up close whales!

If you’re ready for the thrill of your life, then get ready for humpback whale season in Hawaii. It usually starts up mid-November, and is in full-force by Christmas. For those not scared to get a little wet and very close to these amazing sea creatures, check out one of the rafting trips offered. One of my favorites is Captain Steve’s (Steve Lawless). He also happens to be a good friend of mine for over 20 years. His trips depart out of Lahaina and are extremely personalized. He even offers a special deal if you want to go out more than once while you’re on Maui. By the way, the picture above is real!

Book your trip with Captain Steve’s in advance, as they are often sold out. Here’s the link: Captain Steve’s Whale Watching. You can also read a review of a trip here, or get some great deals here.
