Default Aloha, Y'all

Checking in from some miles northeast of Hilo....sailaway party was a huge success, and we did raise more than a few elbows toasting all y'all back ashore. Since checking in the other day from Kauai, I've done four outstanding scuba dives - two off Maui and two yesterday off Kona. Saw lots of spinner dolphins, both at dive site and within 6 feet of tender taking us back to the ship yesterday. They were jumping about 12 feet out of the water. No big critters, but did see 3 sharks and 3 species of Moray Eels, all in the first 10 minutes of the first dive. Lots of beautiful fish! I hope all 144 of the underwater photos come out OK. Spent today chasing Pele and rain showers all over Kilahuea Volcano. Beautiful, and awe-inspiring. Rained off and on all day today, but we had three beautiful days in a row on Maui and yesterday in Kona. Stars and moon out right now. Nice ship, wonderful cruising friends. Will try to check in sometime during the next 5 sea days. Aloha, all y'all.

Hi All Y'all !!

Glad to hear that your dives were everything you hoped !!

Heard from Lisa and she said it was a teeny bit rough last night. Wonder if it had anything to do with the successful sail away party, eh? :-))

Aloha yourself! Now you know why I like diving in Hawaii!
Saw a bunch of Spinner's myself when diving off Kona in October.
Glad to hear all are having a great time.
