The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, Maui:Ritz-Carlton Kapalua

It's whale season here on Maui! 

No matter how many times you see them, year after year, it's still exciting to see the whales return to Maui.  To me, it marks the beginning of the holidays and the birth of a new year.  I walk the Kapalua Coastal trail almost every day, and am always on the look out for the whales that frolic off the coastline.

For those of you that are passionate about whales, Maui's ocean, and/or photography, you must attend Whale Tales.  This is a free, public event held February 3-4, 2012 here at the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua. 

World renowned scientists, photographers and filmmakers will be on hand to share their latest research and projects with the public, through educational seminars and programs, activities for children, book signings, benefit whale watches and more.  Activities surrounding Whale Tales will kick-off with a Whale Trust charity golf tournament on January 28th at the King Kamehameha Club and conclude on February 10th with Lahaina Restoration Foundation at the Baldwin House in Lahaina.

This annual event (formerly called Whale Quest Kapalua) has raised over $200,000 for whale research on Maui since its inception in 2006.  For more information on the Whale Tales events visit the Whale Trust website.  Whale Tales is generously sponsored by the Makana Aloha Foundation, an organization which supports organizations that directly improve the Maui community in the areas of education, the arts, health care, animal welfare and environmental conservation.

I wish I had a photo to post for you of a whale breaching, but I've never been able to capture it, so we'll have to make due with a picture of the Ritz-Carlton here in Kapalua instead...

I hope to see you there!

We have yet to see whales, and we keep planning to take a whale tour in Santa Brarbara, where we live now.  When we were on the Big Island, we saw some from the Orchid hotel, and we had signed up for a whale watch, which unfortunately got cancelled become of the high winds.  A

Do you just specialize in Kapalua?

Aloha Ron and Alexandra,

Thank you for stopping by and reading the post.  I really enjoy the newsletter you send out.  I specialize in Kapalua and West Maui, often working in Wailea/Makena as well.  I grew up here on Maui, so am familiar with most of the areas on the island.

I hope you enjoyed the Big Island.  Any plans to visit Maui?

All the best,
