We are making our first trip during whale-watching season in March. We are staying at the Maui Kai so will have alot of ocean front lanai time to watch for whales and such. This will be our 3rd trip to Maui so all I'm planning is snorkeling, whale watching and then more snorkeling. I would like to get a good pair of binoculars to use from the lanai and also the excursions we have already booked. Can anyone recommend a good choice or give me some guidelines -- my husband and I both wear glasses, want something as lightweight as possible but yet effective and probably somewhat weather-proof. I never realized there is so much to consider when purchasing binoculars. I thought they were "one size fits all". But I have found too many numbers and options -- to the point I've gotten myself totally confused.
