#1 11 Reasons You Shouldn’t Vacation in Maui

Why would you want to go to an exotic island in the Pacific when you can stay on your couch in your living room doing the same old, same old? Old reruns, Netflix binges, cleaning out the garage, cooking, and staying indoors are just a few things you could be happier with than taking a trip to tropical Hawaiian paradise. Wait, what?!

Natalie Brown went out of her way for the would-be-groom to discretely capture the surprise of a marriage proposal in Maui, Hawaii.  She shared these precious photos with us and we love them! Since posting this on Maui Goodness, some other romantic grooms followed suit.  They also had Natalie shoot photos of the Big Moment.

#6 Makawao Forest Reserve

Makawao Forest Reserve is a great place to hike, and even better to mountain bike.  There are loads of great jumps and berms to hit on the downhill.  We saw at least a dozen bikers cross our path as we made our journey. Here we share the hike, photos, and the types of trees/plants you’ll find along the way. Find out more about this gorgeous, protected Maui forest.

#7 Snorkeling When Pregnant

For the most part, snorkeling while pregnant can be done without danger and can be a great way to get some exercise while increasing the mother’s happiness (both very important for a healthy pregnancy.) We share some of our own experiences, photos and a video of us snorkeling on our actual due date!  If conditions are good, and safety is a priority, it should be ok.

Maui Sailing – Sunset Cocktail Cruise

Looking for the ultimate South Maui sunset cruise? You’ve found it! Leaving directly from the beach, the Kai Kanani provides a convenient departure for those staying in Makena, Wailea and Kihei. Enjoy a super friendly crew, high tech and beautiful catamaran, intimate vibe, and unlimited cocktails and hors d’oeuvres as you view the beautiful Maui sunset.


Snorkeling Maui

Snorkeling is our favorite activity on Maui. Enjoy the spectacular clear water and see amazing underwater life, including sea turtles, manta rays and beautiful coral. Visit one of our favorite spots, including the famous Molokini Crater, Black Rock in West Maui and Ulua in South Maui.


Piiholo Ranch Zipline

We strongly believe that this is the best zipline tour in Maui. They take great safety measures, have the longest side-by-side zipline in Hawaii, allow you to zip at the same time as your friends, cross a suspension bridge, challenge you on the Tango Tower, and guide you on horseback ride through the locally owned Piiholo Ranch.
