Kauai Ocean Boating

We took the boat out again today - our second time! We launched the zodiac from Nawiliwili Harbor and went partially around the island all the way to the Kilauea lighthouse, which is where we live, about 24 miles by car, only 20 by boat!
The day was beautiful and the glassy and calm. There was a mist out to sea and over the island in some places - we suspected vog, but since we weren't having any respiratory problems we decided it must be a sea fog or something.
No matter! This time I took dramamine instead of the bonine, and I didn't have the sea bands with me to put on 0 but I never felt queasy - not even on the ride back when the water started to get choppy! Here are a few pics. We took some videos too, but DH has to edit those and put them together.
We even saw a flying fish jump up "fly" (more like glide) over the water for about 30 feet ....
