Limited days left planning

We are available Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and then fly out Thursday evening. Weather looks to be getting rainier. I am trying to pick the best day for RTH and snorkeling. Any tips... we are in Kihei and I am seeing 40-60% rain these last days. Also realized too late for dinner at Mama’s. Should we try late lunch or another nice place for our anniversary dinner?

We much preferred Mama's for lunch vs. dinner. The view is beautiful and we lingered outside awhile after eating. Be sure to tell them what you are celebrating and they will put a little card on your table indicating the occasion.

I love Mama’s and I also love my latest discovery...Mill House. Fabulous setting, creative and inspiring food, exceptional service.

I don't know what site you're using, but the NWS sure doesn't show lots of rain coming!

You're welcome! It's not just nicer but far more accurate than apps and such.

Today is my 10th day and the weather forecast showed rain every day as well and I think it only lightly drizzled for the first time last night at 9 pm. Also as far as mamas I see some reservations avail for lunch on open table. We went last night and were blown away with the place and appetizers.

You want to plan snorkeling by the surf report. Latest I've seen puts the best conditions up in north/west Maui. Try Kehikili or Kapalua. You'll need to drive but they're worth it!!

Go to Hana on Monday, don't want a chance of missing it.

I am so excited I just snagged a 5:15 reservation for Mama’s tomorrow that must have been a cancellation. So looks like RTH Tuesday! Anyone know if Mama’s has a kids menu?
