After reading Fluke by Christopher Moore a few years ago, I’ve been really curious about seeing Humpback whales in Maui. I’m looking forward to staying near Lahaina where the whales presumably stay during the winter too! [According to www.whalewatchmaui.com, the Humpbacks come to Maui because of the warmer water temperatures, the more shallow and protected waters, and the lack of predators. These are ideal conditions to have calves in.]
