Exploring Maui underwater

If water sports are your thing, Maui is the place to do it.  Unlike the Big Island, Maui is a lot more remote and quiet – perfect to reconnect with nature and take in all the beautiful sights the island has to offer.

Snorkeling

We snorkeled with Four Winds II and it was an incredible experience. Originally we were supposed to sail to the beautiful crescent shapped Molokini Crater to snorkel, but conditions became rough and we had to head towards another part of the island. Which actually was not a disappointment at all because we saw a TON of tropical fish and even a few turtles! It was amazing how close we got to them… and all the beautiful coral that lived under the ocean. Its another world beneath the surface. Four Winds provided all the equipment, served breakfast and lunch and an open bar.

Paddleboard/Surfing

This was my first time paddle boarding and it was a lot harder than I thought! It’s easy to get knocked off balance by the waves and because we were in a very rocky beach in Lahaina, it was even scarier to think about falling into sharp coral. We rented equipment from the Royal Hawaiin Surf Academy (where we actually took a surfing lesson as well). We broke across the waves and paddled out pretty far into the ocean and the views of the mountains were amazing.

No surfing pics unfortunately!  It’s not as hard as it looks and it’s a whole lot of fun!  Maui was an amazing trip, the perfect Excape.

An avid trailer with a thirst to experience this beautiful planet Earth as much as I can within my lifetime. People often travel to escape life. To escape the stress of work, to get away from something, or to take a breather from a seemingly boring lifestyle. I created Great Escapes to capture beautiful moments in my travels across the world in hopes of inspiring you to see travel not as a means to escape life, but for life not to escape us.
