Waiting in line at Pier 19. No better way to spend my time at 5 in the morning.
Morning breaks as I drive to the ramp and up into the Superferry.
Cars packed like sardines inside the cargo hold.
Cloudy skies over Honolulu Harbor, Downtown Honolulu and Aloha Tower.
The ramp that directs vehicles into the Superferry.
And we're off! Leaving Honolulu Harbor with a view of Waikiki and Diamond Head
The comfortable confines of the first-class Hahalua Lounge.
Upfront in the Hahalua Lounge. Notice Diamond Head out the windows.
Diamond Head right outside my window. Ain't it just lovely?
Out on the open ocean. After some rain and overcast skies, the sun finally breaks through!
The Superferry's monstrous wake, which seemed to stretch forever.
What causes that monstrous wake.
Passing through the Kalohi Channel. A view of Molokai on one side of the Superferry …
… And a view of the lovely hills of Lanai on the other.
Approaching Maui's northwest coastline.
Nothing to do but check out the view.
Another view of the northwest cliffs of Maui.
The dramatic 636-foot high rock formation, Kahakuloa Head just after turning Maui's northernmost point.
Another view of Kahakuloa Head.
More of Maui's majestic north coastline.
Our first glimpse of Kahului, Maui.
I just loved the breathtaking view of the West Maui mountains.
Closing in on Kahului Harbor. Notice the huge cruise ship.
Condominiums fronting Kahului Harbor.
Awesome shot of the breakers and ships in Kahului Harbor.
Waiting in my car, preparing to disembark.
The skies above Maui were gorgeous that day.
A side view of the Alakai. Too massive to fit within my camera's frame.
Later that evening, about to leave Kahului and return to Honolulu, after my lovely day. Goodbye Maui.
Honolulu Harbor at night. Ahh, home at last!
