By |October 13th, 2010|Maui, Maui Activities, Maui Sailing, Maui Scuba Diving, Maui Snorkeling|Comments Off on Why Molokini Crater?

We often get this question: Why go snorkeling or diving at Molokini Crater when we know for a fact that there's plenty of coral and sea life off the shore? True.  There's a lot of beautiful things to straight off the coast of Maui.  But, when you travel to Molokini, you get a lot more.  [...]

Hawaii Stand Up Paddle Boarding

By |December 14th, 2009|Hawaii, Maui, Maui Activities, Maui Beaches|Comments Off on Hawaii Stand Up Paddle Boarding

If you haven’t already seen it, you will.  Stand Up Paddle boarding and surfing is the latest retro craze.  For years, we we’re reluctant to give it a try because we feel tied to our own roots of surfing (shortboarding.)  But, finally we gave it a shot and rented some boards from Boss Frog’s Dive & Surf in Kihei, Maui, Hawaii in Dolphin Plaza (ask for Benjammin.)

We recently enjoyed a top notch sailing trip aboard the Kai Kanani, which leaves from shore in South Maui.
