Hawaii: Days 7 & 8

Saturday is our last full day here. We started off at 6:30AM with the Kanaio coast & Molokini snorkeling tour with Blue Water Rafting. Despite the early morning it was totally worth it. Great lava flows along the coast as well as excellent snorkeling, especially at Molokini island. There was a little chop on the ocean so the ride was a bit rough, but if you're interested in an adventure it's not a problem. On the way back, the captain got a radio call from another tour boat that whales had been spotted, so he turned the boat around and took us back out. Saw three whales and a pod of dolphins. Dinner was excellent fish ka-bobs at Pita Paradise in Kihei. They were made with opakapaka (snapper) which I liked more than the ono we had the night before.

Sunday we checked out, did a little shopping in Wailea and then drove north. Stopped at the Iao Valley State Park to see the Iao Needle which was cool. Lunch at McDonalds was a McTeri burger - basically a burger with teryaki sauce.
