Sea and Be Seen

| May 11, 2015 | Parties National

Lovers of the ocean’s greatest creatures flocked to West Maui for this year’s edition of Whale Tales, Whale Trust Maui’s one-of-a-kind, IQ-raising event that fused education and research with a healthful dose of tasteful socializing. While an impressive roster of speakers enlightened the audience at The Maui Theatre, select VIPs headed up to Gunars and JoRene Valkirs’ home in the hills of Kapalua. While enjoying wines from the hosts’ cellar and chef Jeff Scheer’s sumptuous bites, guests were fittingly treated to gorgeous vistas with whales breaching in the distance. Of course, a marine adventure was in order too. So, leave it to the crew of Trilogy to take out select supporters for a perfect Maui sunset whale watch. –Photos by Mieko Photography
