Aloha Gentle Readers,
I'm still stuck on how crappy the burger was at Cheeseburger in Paradise....but the guys on the snorkel boat made up for that in spades. Now THAT was a cheeseburger. In paradise. Okay, it was a cheeseburger at Molokini. Jake ate (count 'em) one cheeseburger and THREE grilled chicken breasts. Kid's nine and came stock with a hollow leg. Remember when old guys would ask you if you had a hollow leg? Cuz how else could you have eaten that much food?
Last time we were here we booked a snorkel trip but the wind was bad so we didn't get to Molokini, which ended up a bit disappointing. We saw more more fish on the reef off of Kaanapali Beach than at Molokini. Still a nice ride though, interesting to see the crater up close, good burgers (10 X better than Cheeseburger in Paradise), kids had fun, and a relaxing trip back--saw a couple dolphins and some green sea turtles.
Best snorkeling we've ever had in Hawaii (by a mile) was at Captain Cook on the Big Island. That was like swimming in an aquarium.
