Exploring Maui

What an awesome island is Maui. So many things to do: Snorkeling with turtles, Whale watching, Hiking into lava fields, Road trips, Camping, Stand-Up Paddling, Waterfalls, Delicious food, Sunrises.

On the way you meet always amazing people like Rick & Shelley who took me to an amazing snorkel trip with turtles or David with whom I did a two days road trip to Hana and back. Here some impressions from Maui

Snorkeling with turtles

In Maui and on Big Island I got the chance to swim with turtles. Very graceful creatures and very delightful to watch.

SUP – Stand Up Paddling in Hawaii

Stand Up Paddling or short SUP is a very famous sport in Hawaii and my couchsurfing friend Jen introduced me to this sport on a Saturday morning in Kihei, Maui. The board was 25$ for 2 hours with a brief introduction how to do SUP. Basically you are standing on a big surf board and you have a paddle to navigate yourself around. Here some impressions from a sport which is very good for your balance and body and just great to be on the water and enjoy the scenery. We even got to see a baby whale nearby.

Pu’u’ula’ula Mountain Sunrise in Maui

Wow what a great spectacle on Pu’u’ula’ula Mountain in Haleakala National Park. After catching the sunset the evening before and sleeping at the summit (Thanks to my couchsurfer friend Jen I had enough blankets for the night) at

5:30am and the nightly sky awakes with hints of red on the horizon. Watching this at 10.000 ft and above the clouds awesome! Check out some pictures and the timelapse video from my trip to the top of Maui.

Whale watching in Hawaii

Beginning of February and it is whale watching season here in Hawaii especially on Maui. So I boarded the whale watching cruise from TRILOGY in Ma’alaea and saw some amazing creatures in action. What an awesome experience. Check out some pictures:
