Barbara Hoisington took The Splash on a recent whale watching trip to Maui. Sponsored by the Pacific Island Institute and the Pacific Whale foundation, the Road Scholars tour provided a chance for her to see lots of whales raising babies and getting ready to return to their Alaskan feeding grounds for the summer. Barbara wrote that an estimated 1,000 whales are in the waters around Maui in January.
