Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his boyfriend hit a Maui beach on Wednesday. - Derek Shook/Splash NewsThe couple stayed busy paddle boarding and snorkeling close to shore. - Derek Shook/Splash NewsJesse Tyler Ferguson -- who plays the uptight Mitchell Pritchett on "Modern Family" -- was spotted having some fun in the sun in Maui! The 35-year-old actor and his partner, Justin Mikita, took advantage of the island's ocean activities on Wednesday, kicking things off with some paddle boarding and later checking out the underwater scene via a snorkeling excursion close to shore. Though Jesse -- who has a rather fair complexion -- wisely stayed covered up in a long-sleeve shirt in the water, his main squeeze went the more, er, usual route of actually swimming shirtless.
Shirts or not, the couple -- who first went public with their relationship in January and have been inseparable ever since —- looked happy as can be. And who wouldn't be in Hawaii? Let's just hope the two squeezein a little time for relaxation. It is called a vacation, after all!
Catch Jesse on the third season of "Modern Family," Wednesday, September 21 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
