    Last month I had the blessed opportunity to see some of the better parts of Maui. The Lahaina Divers Crew provided some amazing scuba diving opportunities, and the Maui Canyon team introduced me to some fantastic canyoning! Enjoy the movie :)

    Oh wow. That is a hard question. The reason I love Maui so much is because it has a bit of everything that I Love. It has Canyoneering, Snorkeling, Beach, Sea Cliffs, Good Scuba Diving, Lots of Sea Turtles, Desert, Arches, Extinct Volcanoes, Rain Forests, Massive waterfalls, etc.

    Really, it depends on who I am with. If I am with my wife, then I would probably stick to the things she loves most. Swimming at the beach snorkeling, and driving the Road to Hana.

    If I was with my buddies, I would stick to canyoneering. The scuba diving is cool, but canyoning in these places is something that not many people get to do or see.

    Thank You Tom. I appreciate your kind remarks.

    I talked to Ren. He use to post on Bogley regularly. He and his team have done most of the canyons on the island. They are pretty willing to help visitors out when contacted.

    Thanks Mark :) Maybe if you slow down with canyoneering in Utah you might be able to find some time for it in other places, like Maui! :) I only wish I had a job like yours that let me get out as often as you and your son do!
