 Friday morning we went on this boat to go to Lanai to snorkel.
 We had won this trip at our orientation meeting on Monday. Bob and Veronica sat at our table during orientation. We enjoyed talking to them so we arranged to go on this trip together.
 Looking back at Maui and the resorts along the shore line.
 A cruise ship was in port.

 The water was a little choppy, but after about 45 minutes we were anchored near Lanai and in the water snorkeling.
We enjoyed an hour of snorkeling. We had only snorkeled off a beach on our Caribbean cruise years ago, and Larry couldn't do it then. He bravely tried it again but had trouble with his mask. We did see some pretty fish.  

We went back to Maui and anchored about mile 13 on Route 30, and snorkeled some more. Some people saw turtles, but I wasn't lucky enough to, for I was a little afraid to go too far from the boat.

 Larry and Bob enjoyed going down the slide into the beautiful water, not me!
 We had a nice barbecue lunch and then if we were finished snorkeling we could have complimentary mai tais. This is the only day I got sunburn. I had lotion on everywhere but the lower part of my back, and that area turned a little pink, ouch!
 We had a very enjoyable day snorkeling and cruising around the island. We would even try snorkeling again, but Larry would like to get a better mask.
 On Saturday night we went on the Maui Princess for a dinner cruise.
 A beautiful sunset.
This entertainer sang and played for us during the trip, We would have danced if we hadn't had to hold on to something when you were up and moving around. We had a good meal and again a couple of mai tais.

 Since we didn't see too much while we were snorkeling we went to the Maui Ocean Center.
 All the fish here are found around the reefs in Hawaii.
 Here is a sea turtle.
 I enjoyed watching this little octopus, but I'm not sure I would want to meet him in the ocean.
 We watched a diver in the shark tank.
This was a nice way to view the fish.
