Stand Up Paddling with Singing Whales Video on Maui Feb 16 2018
While heading out for a simple training paddling session on the West side of Maui last Friday, I had the most amazing encounter with a baby whale and it’s mother. They were very playful and the little one about 5 ft long and was learning how to breach. It was so cute and the mama would guide it along. The waters were silky blue and I could hear them singing while I was on top of my board. By lowering my GoPro into the water I was able to pick up their amazing songs.
I kept the the required distance away as moved closer and closer. I just sat still and waited, watched, listen and was in complete awe.
The mother whales was so calm and since they swam so close I had to be very mindful of their space. I wasn’t scared as I’m sure they knew I was there. I was so grateful to be in their grand presence.

I wish every training day was so spectacular and this special. It sure made it hard to keep focused with so many whales enjoying the beautiful day. I hope all of you one day are lucky enough to experience stand up padding on the warm waters of Maui.
Grateful to live on Maui
Pease share the Aloha,
