We had an awesome snorkel and also view of dolphins who choose to run with Kolea as she motored south. Then beautiful peaceful sail north back to Port. Thanks Eric & Yumi for the lovely day and birthday cake too.

Sorry, It's not. To my knowledge, there is no boat on the Big Island named "Sprit of Aloha". There was one named The "Spirit of Kona", but it broke it's mooring last winter and was lost on the rocks in Kailua Bay.
