We are considering the 9-15 date for this trip.My husband's shoulder is problematic and he is concerned about getting back in the boat after snorkeling. Is there someone on board who will be able to help him?

I am arriving Feb 7 for the program beginning Feb 8. My flight arrives at the Kahului Airport at 3:35 pm on Feb 7. Is anyone else arriving Feb 7 who would be interested in sharing a ride to Lahaina? Shuttles charge just about the same for 2 as for 1. A taxi is also a possibility.

I have not bought tickets yet. Thought about arriving early. It is a long flight and BIG time adjustment from the DC area.
Kathleen Ellis Nov 25, 2014 at 08:57 AM

If you are thinking about coming early, you might want to reserve your extra day at the hotel now. Yesterday they told me they were getting really tight on rooms.

I am a certified diver but have only been wet a few times. As time goes by the elaborate equipment seems awkward. Hence the snorkeling.

Ruta Sevo Aug 06, 2014 at 11:34 AM

I think yes, it would work. The snorkeling can be short - one hour or so. You are on beaches or boats. Some people didn't go in because of illness or mood. When in salt water, you float, so it is great for a beginner. You can wear a floatation device. You want to snorkel floating face down, on top of the water, using mask & snorkel for breathing. Our oldest participant was 92 years old. You have to be comfortable in water, though, using your arms and legs, but you can stay in shallow places too.

Thinking of going. I have a neighbor who might but is not a swimmer so would just be alng for the ride. Would that work???

Ruta Sevo Jan 19, 2014 at 06:32 PM

Hello. Looking to see who is going and how many. Ruta

We are going Klaus and Tammy Kallenberger and we are hoping that enough people will go so that it is not cancelled. Are you Latvian? We bought our air tickets already. My husband is a better swimmer than I but I can swim well enough to snorkel
Ruta Sevo Oct 16, 2014 at 11:16 AM

I went in March. I am Lithuanian. We had a good large group. It was a very good trip.

Mike Grant Feb 14, 2012 at 03:30 AM

Any scuba divers in the group?

Just avid snorkelers and birders. Tom & Sally
