Submitted by: Rich S.
Destination: Maui, Hawaii
About this photo: This was taken while snorkeling/kayaking in Maui at Le Perouse Park by Wailea on Thanksgiving day 2009. We kayaked and swam with about 40 dolphins and then found a remote area to just snorkel with many turtles who would peacefully glide right by us.
Best deal found: I rented (2) two person kayaks from a guy on Craigslist. He delivered, gave us tips and let us use his underwater camera all for $50! This would have been $90/person anywhere else. It was awesome.

Best deal found: We stayed at the Hotel Vertigo off Union Square for $98 a night. Part of Hitchcock’s Vertigo movie was filmed there.
