Spring Break Part 2: Whale Watching

Bright and early on Saturday morning, we boarded the Star of Honolulu for a breakfast whale-watching cruise. I have to admit, I was more than a little skeptical that we would actually see whales. 
Us and the whales have a history, if you recall.

We were all very pleasantly surprised! About 15 minutes in, a mom and baby whale appeared beside our boat and swam beside us for most of the cruise. The baby whale was particularly active. He showed off the whole time by jumping out of the water numerous times! It was amazing! 

We also had some pretty amazing views of Honolulu and Diamondhead from the boat. 

Keaton was more than ready to get back on land after 2 hours - poor little man definitely inherited his daddy's sea legs (or lack therof). After our cruise, we walked around the Aloha Tower marketplace and had lunch on the pier. 

Then we headed back to Waikiki for some real beach time! 
Mia had so much fun swimming in the ocean even though it was pretty cold water! 
Shave ice on the beach in Hawaii- doesn't get much better than that! 
And that was just Saturday!
