Come swimming with us on Maui and listen to the sounds of whales underwater.

We were visiting Maui as guests of the Maui Visitors Bureau and were booked for a sailing canoe venture. This was going to be the highlight of my week as I love the Hawaiian outrigger canoe! But, the wind was in town and the trip was canceled, much to my disappointment.

Maui is not called the “Magic Isle” for nothing though! Since we were already at the beach, we went in for a swim. The water is clear and beautiful so naturally I was underwater straight away. And then I heard something really familiar, but familiar only from my iPod not from “real life.”

Sure enough, it was the whales singing to me, “Don’t be disappointed Rox! Swim in this warm beautiful sea and you’ll find fun and pleasure all around you.” I cannot tell you how excited I was! In all my years of being underwater and seeing whales from boats, I have never once heard them singing while underwater. It was such a good reminder for all of us on vacation: don’t get too attached to any one thing! As Vene Chun said, “there are treasures and mysteries awaiting us” – if we let it all flow.
