We will arrive in Maui on Wednesday, spend a good 4 days there. Staying at Kauhale Makai, in Kihei. I have read many posts but just don't know how to best spend our time. From there we are going to Oahu for another 4 days. We are a young couple and want to snorkel, do zipline ,a laui and see whales and site see....what are the top things to do? This is our first time in Hawaii. Thank you so much for your time.

OK...no whales. They are back in Alaska. If you are coming in this week you may well find the zip-lines, Luau's booked up! Check on-line for reservations. And do it now!

mauiinfosource.com is a good resource.

Snorkeling is usually best in the morning.

This is how we schedule our island days-

1.breakfast in the condo

2.beach time/ snorkel time or scheduled activity

3. lunch on the beach or find a yummy reasonable restaurant

4. go check out sights, do a little shopping

5. back to condo, snacks, pool time, rest & clean up

6. go out to dinner or bbq dinner, cocktail time

7. go out for shave ice or ice cream, walk around the beach

8. pool time if not exhausted

9. shower, clean up, get everything ready for paradise the next day

1st trip, check out-

Iao Valley

Beaches- so many great ones near you- Keawakapu, Charley Young, Kam1,2,3, Ulua, Wailea, Makena, Polo, Po'lenalena, Maluaka....

Road to Hana if you want to & do not get car sick- takes a whole day

Lahaina- Banyan tree, shopping, restaurants

Maui Ocean Center- Aquarium if you want to be indoors, pair it with Tropical Plantation, tram ok, my kids liked it

There's surfing lessons, ziplining, snorkel trip to Molokini, day trips to Lanai, sunset cruises, luau at Wailea Marriott we enjoyed.... lots to do but make sure you get some time to relax.

Make sure you soak every minute of it in! It goes by fast and you will be dreaming of being back there soon after you leave.

I would put these at the top of my list........:

Road to Hana and around Haleakala (Full Day)

Haleakala (Sunrise, Sunset or during the day) , stop at the Winery

Helicopter Ride, Lunch at Mama's Fish House and visit I'ao.

South Coast Drive - Lava Fields and LaPerouse

West Coast Drive to the Blow Hole and then visit Lahaina

Snorkel at Molokini Crater

If you can get the Zip Line and Luau booked you can tweek your schedule and fit those in. After the Snorkel trip, South Coast Drive or after a visit to Lahaina you could do the Luau (Old Lahaina Luau is very nice, with great food.
