@melisandescott: There is a lot to do in Maui. I’ll paste the activities info I posted on my wedding website below. I think the road to Hana, waterfall hikes, zipline, and water sports might appeal to you.
From my website:
Le’ale’a ~ Fun
Maui has been voted Conde Nast’s best island 19 years in a row for good reason. The beaches and sea-life are breathtaking, and there are endless activities to enjoy.
Maui offers a wide variety of fabulous recreational activities including, but far from limited to: whale watching, traveling the infamous road to Hana, waterfall hikes, scuba diving, kayaking, sunset sails, parasailing, sport fishing, jet skiing, and helicopter tours. Activities offered at the Kapalua Resort range from lei-making lessons and luxurious spa treatments, to snorkeling Kapalua Bay and world-class PGA golf. The Ritz-Carlton Concierge can help arrange for anything you desire.
Maui’s Official travel site is an excellent resource on all that Maui has to offer:http://www.gohawaii.com/maui.
