In Maui, definitely drive the road to Hana, snorkel at Molokini & Turle Town, and eat at Mama’s Fish House.

And you should get the guide book Maui Revealed. I think there’s one for Kuai too.

Oh I agree, the Maui and Kauai Revealed are awesome books.  You’ll find everything you want for each island in those boks.  There some off the beaten path exploring tips we got from those books that we wouldnt have found otherwise.  (ex, going about 100 ft back down a road, over the fence, through the small break in the impassible looking brush, down a slippery slope, to an amazing waterfall.)

For Kauai you should definitely go to the fern grotto, see the “grand canyon” and go to Wailua falls. there’s also an old light house there that is pretty cool.

Most definitely Mama’s Fish House on Maui. It is well worth the price tag. Also do the sunrise bike tour. Probably the most amazing thing we did when in Maui. You wake up really early and watch the sun rise over the clouds. And then afterwards you bike down the volcano. Its such an amazing way to experience the island.

 

 

I also highly recommend doing a kayak – snorkeling tour. They take you out to a great location and show you some awesome stuff. While we were in the water, there was a momma and baby humpback whale nursing. We were able to get within 30 feet of them.

 

We didn’t do too much other touristy things.. 3 major ones in a week. And it was totally awesome. Also make sure to go to a luau. The Lahiana luau is the best…

 

Hope you have a wonderful time!!

In Maui, I’m going to second the drive to Hana. Simply amazing! Kind of exhausting (My Darling Husband and I went ALL the way around the island in our Jeep. It was fun “roughing it” though!). Definitely swim in a waterfall while you’re there! You need to go to Keanae!! There’s a banana bread stand there that was the BEST. Better than the one in the guidebooks said was “the best in the world” that’s on the north side of Maui. We should’ve gotten like 4 loafs instead of 1. My Darling Husband and I were fighting over it, haha.

Also, if you feel like getting up early, Sunrise at Haleakela is gorgeous!!! Really cold though! All we had were sweatshirt hoodies, so bring a blanket or something. 

Snorkeling at Black Rock. We saw 2 sea turtles, 5 sting rays, and the most fish out of a bunch of places that we went to. Go early, early to beat the crowds. When we were getting ready to go, people kept getting in our way and it was getting annoying, but in the beginning, it was fantastic! Only a couple people and plenty of space to swim around and get pics.

Aloha Mix Plate was delicious in Lahaina! Great, cheap local fare. Yum! Cheeseburger in Paradise! Also yum!

I could go on and on and on. Maui is just so amazing.

We did the same exact trip as you!! Except we were there for 12 days. If you get car sick (like me) I wouldn’t recommend the road to Hana. Ok, we didn’t actually do it, but I heard it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be and there are a ton of windy (sp? ah…winedy?) roads.

In Kuai we did a helicopter ride for an hour that was AMAZING!!! Probably the highlight of the whole trip. If you do it, do it with no doors on, that way you get much better pictures. And don’t look directly into the camera or you might get sick.

In Kuai we also did zip lining which was a blast. That was at the Princeville Ranch.

Our luau wasn’t that great food wise, but the entertainment was really good. It was kind of long though.

We did ATV riding…that was ok, not that great and we did bluewater rafting which was ok as well.

We loved just relaxing, shopping, going out to eat, etc. Have a blast, let me know if you have anymore questions!
