What to do in Kaanapalli

We are an Australian family that has booked our first trip to Hawaii this June. We are staying in Kaanapalli for a few days and then Waikiki for a few days. What activities should we do? Our children are 13,11 and 9.

Do a search in this forum and you will find many discussions about the activity options. In Ka'anapali you will find parasailing, jet-skis, surfing lessons, kayaking, and much more. There are now several ziplines in Maui that are hugely popular (read book your reservations well before you arrive). Activities can put a dent in your budget, but renting some good snorkel gear will keep your boys happy for many hours. You might also consider a half-day trip out to Molokini for some snorkeling there.

Try a snorkel cruise. There are several available from Kaanapli. Our favorite is the Gemini and leaves from in front of the Westin.

They might enjoy one of the arts and crafts fairs. There is one under the Banyan Tree downtown Lahaina or the one near the post office just outside of the entrance to the Kaanapali resort (this one is on Sundays).

There are several places to rent snorkel gear for the week. The kids might have fun with that right off the beach on the Sheraton end - or even in the pool!

Check out bluewaterrafting.com and southpacifickayaks.com on Maui.

I would take the surfing lessons on Waikiki beach--better waves there for beginners. My husband and daughter did it last year and LOVED it! Also, try an outrigger canoe ride on Waikiki beach!

We're also staying in Kaanapali and Waikiki this summer! Did the same last year and really enjoyed our time in both places.
