what a fantastic last day! We woke up bright and early to go whale watching on a big ship. It was a relaxing, sunny cruise in the harbour. Most of us were strewn about on the top deck, awaiting the whales! It was a gorgeous day and as we enjoyed the breath taking view- Diamond Back mountain peak, the beach shorelines with the cascading, green mountains in the back all while the crystal blue water lapped around us. It took awhile, but finally a calf whale and his mama appeared to us in the distance. Saw a few sprays and some surfacing. Pretty amazing.
After our tour it was free time! Our travelers had the choice of going on a short hike up Diamond Back mountain or simply enjoying their free time. A third of our crew enjoyed the rigorous climb and spectacular city view on the mountain. Others went shopping and still others enjoyed more beach time on the famous Waikiki Beach. Some travelers rented a surf board to catch those famous Hawaiian waves!
Because we had to be out of our hotel by noon, the adventure continued with a cold beach shower by the ocean and some hair washing in the sinks at the bathroom. Any way you slice it, the last day of our fantastic tour was well spent by all!
we met at 5:15 in the hotel lobby to head to The Hard Rock Cafe for supper! Delicious meal included in our tour! Then our next destination was the Airport to begin our trek home.
The memories created on this trip, the lessons learned will forever be etched in the minds of these awesome group of PA travellers!
