Fantastic morning with Blue Water Rafting! Got up close center to a mother whale and calf! The calf was showing off! We named him “Finny”! Lots of joy on the water with this company!

I took the whale watch this year and there was only fruit juice and water. I don't remember what they had when I did the long tour that goes to the south tip of Maui
