Skiing Massive Waves

This is fun – Popular Tahoe free-skier and trained racer, Chuck Patterson, was recently on Maui and rode a 20ft. wave at Jaws. But get this – he rode the wave on skis (surf-skiing)! Here’s the link to watch the video and read the article.

The North Pacific Humpback Whales are back!

The North Pacific humpback whales, we affectionately refer to as our “gentle giants”, have arrived!  The humpbacks begin their migration approximately 3,000 miles from the cold arctic waters to the warm waters of Hawaii, to mate, give birth to their calves, and rear their young.  The shallow waters surrounding Maui are known as the “cradle of the humpback” due to the significant number of humpbacks raised in this area.  

The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary is one of only 12 marine national parks and is the only preserve in the United States dedicated to a marine mammal.  During the peak season (mid-December to mid-March), there are literally thousands of humpback whales in our islands. On Maui, we are fortunate to have hundreds of daily humpback whale sightings well into April and May.

We so enjoy these gentle giants at Napili Point Resort. We invite you to come visit us soon!  http://www.napili.com Call toll free at 1-800-669-6252 (US and Canada) or direct 1-808-669-9222, Daily 7AM-9PM Hawaii Standard Time

Aerial Photos of Napili Point Resort

Last week we had Randy Miller of Miller Images in Lahaina, come to Napili Point Resort and take aerial photos of the resort.  These weren’t just any aerial photos – Randy used a 6′ drone airplane that was equipped with 2 digital cameras underneath the plane’s wings. 

It was an absolutely beautiful morning in Napili - not a cloud in the sky.  It was around 8AM when Randy launched the airplane from the “point” of the resort.  He navigated the airplane remotely, walking up and down the resort taking aerial photos of the resort, Honokeana Bay, and he even got shots of the honu (turtles) in the bay!  The camera took a photo every 5 seconds and they turned out incredible! 

Would you like to see all the photos that Randy took?  Please visit our Napili Point Resort Facebook Fan Page at this link.  Remember - you do not need to have a Facebook account to look at our Fan Page and enjoy it.  It is a public site and available for viewing by anyone.  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Napili-Point-Resort/178981666569 Once you are the Fan Page, click on Photos and then the first album is called “Aerial/Resort Photos”.
