Owner description: A whale museum featuring a 40-foot whale skeleton.
Reviewed 14 August 2014

This is a beautifully done museum that pays homage to Hawaii's whaling history. They have tons of real artifacts from the era including whaling hooks/spears, whale oil, scrimshaw, and other tools. Although it is in a small space, they've managed to fill it with TONS of information. This is definitely more for adults, as there is a lot of reading to be done. My favorites were the quotes from actual whalers.

Whaler's Village was an unexpected find for us as we were exploring the area around our condo. Very clean and well laid out, it makes for a very pleasant shopping experience. While the majority of it is national brand stores, with a little work, you can find some of the smaller shops that offer local flavor buying options. Excellent dining choices also in the area.

This place was close to our hotel (Sheraton Maui) and we could walk here for food and walking around. Would we come here to shop. . probably not as it caters of course to tourists. Nevertheless, there are great restaurants in area and the place is buzzing with activity so you can walk around and have a drink and hang out.

Not a place to come for everyday items. There's an ABC and one or to other reasonably priced stores, but mostly the shops are high-end fashion stores. It gets busy and the parking is expensive, though if you do spend money in the shops or eat at one of the restaurants you can get the parking free for up to 3 hours.

This is a great place to shop in Maui. Just off the stretch of famous beach, this mall has everything you need for teens, a great toy store, jewelry, local goods, and every-day fashion. Check it out!
