As Spirit of Lahaina sailed farther from the coast, the view of the Maui's coast became minuscule. Gradually, the coast diminished. There was nothing but blue sky and sea, and it seemed like we were the only surviving boat buoying on the colossal sea. An hour later or so, the sun began to set. At first, the sun ray was still searing. Thereafter, it turned mild and permeated the skies with an orangey hue. It was cloaked behind horde of clouds. It was the most romantic moment I had in life, especially with my love one beside me.

We departed under sunny skies and on calm waters. The open bar served great mai-tais, rum punch, beer, wine, and soft drinks. The delicious and plentiful pupus included fruit and veggies, cheeses, meatballs, and chicken wings. As we were enjoying our first round of drinks, we spotted the exhaling spray of a humpback whale. Following them at a respectful distance, Captain Chuck was able to provide us with a marvelous view of three whales as their fins broke the surface and then showed us their tails as they dove. Late April is the very end of the whale season and we really didn't expect to see any so this was an added bonus. We also frequently saw groups of flying fish leap from the water and skim the surface for great distances.
We were entertained along the way by a singer/guitarist who played a lot of Jimmy Buffet tunes and took requests, too. At the end of the cruise he gave my son, just learning the bass, a guitar pick that said Maui on it. He was thrilled.
The sunset was gorgeous and as it reflected off the wispy clouds coming over the mountains we were also rewarded with a lovely rainbow.
The crew was extremely friendly and we even bought the picture they take as you board the boat. What a great evening!
