The photo z(on their website) was snapped on Thursday, October 9 by Captain “CJ” Clint Kostak of the Ocean Quest, at around 1:00 p.m., during Pacific Whale Foundation’s Lanai Wild Dolphin & Snorkel Eco-Adventure. The cruise was on its way back to Maui at the time. The humpback whale was a solitary humpback whale, located about two miles off the coast of Maui, near the resort area of Kaanapali.
The passengers enjoyed the unexpected bonus of watching the humpback whale, which milled about, not swimming in any particular direction. Captain CJ was able to photograph the whale as it lifted its tail flukes to dive beneath the sea….
And here is a video for you to enjoy:
* This was actually sent to me via e-mail by a friend. It was also passed on to her. I do not know who created this, but it sure is cleverly funny. Pardon us if you find this offensive or insulting – I am posting this just for fun. I think it’s kinda cute I actually took out Kahului Barbie, Paia Barbie, Lahaina Barbie and Makawao Barbie because their paraphernalias are not “family friendly” kind (at least in my opinion). Anyway, I hope you find these cute also:

Forget the imperfect title, the winner of three Tony Awards, “Urinetown: The Musical” is one of the most uproariously funny musicals in recent years. It is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, revolution and love in a time when water is worth its weight in gold and not all the leaders are completely forthright. For Maui, this should sound very familiar. “Urinetown” catapults the audience into an unknown future with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter. Columnist Liz Smith said, “Urinetown is one of the cleverest, most adroit, funniest evenings I’ve spent in many a season.”
Direct from Broadway, URINETOWN: The Musical features some of Maui’s greatest talent, including Daniel Angel, Mark Collmer, Laura Bloom Farber, Paul Janes-Brown, Curtis La Forge, Sharleen Lagattuta, William Makozak, John Messermith, Douglas Neagoy, Yumi Numata, Eboni Prentice, Bill Schnitzer, Ron Smith, Karen Stavash, Russ Taft and Ann Marie Wilder.
