Kevin went deep sea fishing. He had a good time, but didn't catch too many fish. He caught a yellow fin tuna and what I consider a "cute" Mahi Mahi.
I decided to not go fishing and get a facial instead.
That night we attended the awards dinner.
Fliet mignon, lobster and Polynesian dancers...
The next morning we ordered room service. Can you believe it was my first time ordering room service? It was so fancy!
Kevin and I went on a helicopter ride that morning. We were pretty excited. Oahu is beautiful, but from a helicopter... it is breathtaking.
Kevin and I went to Waikiki for dinner. We ate at the coolest hotel. The Moana is one of the oldest hotels.
We were stealing decorating ideas for our new house. It's just beautiful.
The next day was the most anticipated day for me. It was the day of our shark excursion! I've wanted to go shark cage diving for a LONG time. It was only a 15 minute boat ride and the water was glass. I was a bit nervous because I didn't want to repeat what happened the day before. On our way out to the dive site we saw two humpback whales, a mommy and a baby. I just finished saying that I had never seen a whale jump out of the water (except for Shamu) when the mommy whale breached, followed by her baby. The baby was so cute, it just kept mimicking it's mommy.
When the boat stopped, the sharks immediately started to circle. There were some pretty big ones!
Kevin jumped in the shark cage first. It looks a little pathetic to have so many people in a little cage. Kind of like we were the animals in a cage the sharks were looking at.
It was amazing to see the sharks swimming around us. They are such beautiful animals. I felt completely safe in the cage. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Maybe next time I'll dive with great white sharks off the coast of South Africa.
We were so close to Matsumoto's, the best shaved ice in Hawaii the bus driver was nice enough to stop so we could get one... just as good as I remember!
I can't wait until Kevin wins another trip. This was the most amazing vacation I've ever been on. I think we only spent $100 the whole time we were there, and that was on souvenirs. Everything was covered, we even got gifts every night! My favorite were the Maui Jim sunglasses. To sum up this trip in one word... AMAZING!
Thank you Kevin for working hard!
