No need to always watch from a boat....many of these huge creatures are close enough to watch from the shore line.

Yes, we could often see them breeching and frolicking from the road as we drove along the coastline.

Absolutely amazing. KUDOS to you.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

Awesome capture. We were on the Big Island two weeks ago to hopefully capture the lava entry into the ocean....nope, notta... it stopped flowing into the ocean just before we arrived on the island. Did capture many many green sea turtles though :) I love our visit to the Islands.

We caught an eruption a couple of years ago on the Big Island. It is somewhere in the Nature & Landscape Archives :)

I dont think I've ever seen whale photos with land and houses in the background. What a sight!

went whale watching out of Newport Beach, CA today. I saw a bunch of humps only. No breaches and only 2 tails. Those are some great shots you got there. Guess I have to head to Hawaii now.

Yes, we often could whale watch from the roadside as many were very close to shore :)

Thanks for the comments everyone. I can't wait to go back next year!

Maureen - Nice work. I'm thinking of heading to Maui next January. It's the boss's birthday and I try to get her out of town for a week around January. Any tips about lodging/hotels/boat rides would be helpful. We generally travel w/Apple Vacations but am open to any and all recommendations. Thank you.

Excuse me old timer....she said sweetly, is that a 300mm IS prime in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?
