Click for Lahaina, Hawaii Forecast

Day or Night there is always something happening in and around Lahaina.  The front street is a bustling place of action.  During the day most of the museums, art galleries, shops, cafes and restaurants are open early.

You can enjoy your day under the banyan tree in the center of town where there is plenty of people watching to be had.  Each day there is something different going on from markets, to events, to presentations, tournament related events and even festivals.

Throughout Lahaina there are plenty of cafes and bars that are open late.  There is something for everyone in your group, from country to hip-hop dance.  Check out the hotel concierge often to see what’s going hot on what days.  There is no club that is going off every night so plan your days and check out things ahead of time to be sure you have a great night out.  Since most people are on vacation, waiting to the weekend to have a great time is not always necessary like in the cities.  Every day can be a party night in Lahaina.

This is the historic capital of the Hawaiian Islands so it has a lot more history. The old buildings, canal setup and unique architecture is a wonderful place to hang out for a day. This is much more of a tourist town then Kihei. There are little museums, galleries and many shops, cafes and restaurants.

The large banyan tree in the centre of town at the waterfront is a great meeting place and a perfect place to do some people watching.

Deep Water Fishing

Maui is known for many things but deep water fishing is not one of them.  Maybe I am traveling in the wrong circles but whenever I tune into one of those fishing shows, Maui is never a featured location.  There could be a number of reasons for it but they only apply to cost for a television crew.  For those looking for something fun to do in Maui, then taking a fishing excursion should be one of them.

The waters are clear, clean and deep.  The islands are all shaped as big mountains that extend deep down to the ocean floor.  As you might have heard Maui and the Big Island’s mountains would be must taller then Mt. Everest if you measure from the ocean floor.  You don’t have to go that far out to sea to get into some really deep water.   In between the islands it can get as deep as 6100′.

The depths are more then adequate for what a serious deepwater fisherman is looking for, a battle with a Pacific Blue Marlin.   There are also yellowfin tuna, barracuda, wahoo and many other marlin types.  This is definitely the thing do to in Maui for anyone who loves to fish.

There are plenty of boat charters available to take you out.  In most cases you don’t need to book ahead unless your schedule is really tight.
