Maui
Iao Valley Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Drove ourselves. What a beautiful place with photo ops everywhere. Well worth a side trip. Not crowded at all. Sort of off the beaten path but close.


Lahaina Walking Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Drove ourselves. Lahaina is a beautiful and well maintained little town with great shops and sights. The huge Banyan Tree is unbelievable! We were back to the ship in time for lunch. Hilo Hatties is the place for good quality gifts and clothes. Not crowded in Lahaina like Hilo and Honollu.


Road to Hana Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Drove ourselves. What a great drive in a small car. I don't know how the buses do it. It was fun to drive and the sights are magnificent! Leave early and take a bite to eat. There is very little along the way to spoil the natural state of the route.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Wife flew it in a Safari Helicopter and the girls and I drove it. Spectacular from both vantage points. We got closer to the calderas but she got to see the lava down inside. Part of the circle road was closed but plenty was open.

Snorkeling Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Drove ourselves to Kahuluu Beach for a snorkeling rendezvous with Green Sea Turtles and tons of flashy fish. Great area for beginners and others. Easy in and out and quite large. Lots of folks but not crowded at all.

Kilohana Plantation Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
The Plantation, the Train Ride, and the Kalamaku Luau were all very good. It was quite crowded but with the exception of leaving after the luau it was handled very well. The food was good but the show was the high point of the evening. Leaving was just a mad dash to the buses. ARG!


Wailua River Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Drove ourselves to the Fern Grotto Cruise. The river and the grotto were beautiful and worth the trip. However, the marina and the boats were more than a bit run down.


Waimea Canyon Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Drove ourselves to what might be the highlight of the whole week. Waimea Canyon is spectacular enough in itself but then when you drive on a little further and look down on the Na Pali Coast, it becomes indescribable!
