    Awesome video and tips for vacationers. My family and I are going to Maui this coming October for a week of ( hopefully ) relaxing vacation. Looks like there is no public transportation to go around Maui. So renting a car is the best bet? Please advise. I am now one of your subscribers. Thank you for sharing.😊

  2. Susan on July 13, 2023 at 9:46 am

    Iao valley is closed right now 😢 can we still see anything if we drive by? I love your videos thank you!

  3. Vik on July 13, 2023 at 9:46 am

    Any mountain biking or bike trails? I don’t see many channels showing those.

  4. Robert Cavalier on July 13, 2023 at 9:47 am

    By far ……. my favorite vacation spot! It’s the U.S.A.; it’s warm; has lots of sports, cute girls; and even their music is easy on the karma! Mahalo, people! Have fun! Love, Cav. *

    Your little boy reminds me so much of my own at that age. He’s so peaceful and content. He reaches for your hand to cross the street automatically, and trusts you 100%. It’s the best job in the world watching out for a little one. Do your best to slow down and enjoy this time, which it looks like you already do 👍. One day you will be crossing the street together and realize he’s not reaching for your hand and doesn’t need to anymore, and the feeling of importance you have bumps down a notch, and it hurts your heart a bit. You all are so beautiful together, and you are giving your son a life full of beautiful experiences. He’ll be as easy going as you are as an adult, and that is a job well done on your part. May God continue to bless your family 🙏
    My son is 16 now,and still easy going, and a great kid, but I miss looking down at his wavy hair and holding his little hand and exploring the world around us together. It goes so fast.

  6. fishing with nehemiah on July 13, 2023 at 9:51 am

    So bring a go-pro, snorkeling equipment and water shoes, thank you!

  7. Sappy Eats 🍖 on July 13, 2023 at 9:51 am

    We’re doing the road to Hana tomorrow! My girlfriend and I are a bit nervous. Hoping for no carsickness on the way to the black sand beach! 🙏🏽

  8. Alyona E. S. on July 13, 2023 at 9:52 am

    Your baby-boy is adorable as well as you all as a family, such a joy to watch you/ I even started thinking about having a child myself after watching your videos:-))))

  9. Jbird on July 13, 2023 at 9:52 am

    How’s the weather in mid January? Looking to good. But unsure of the weather.

  10. Janice Emig on July 13, 2023 at 9:55 am

    I’m turning 61 when I visit Maui. Haven’t been to Hawaii since I was 5 years old so happy to be going to the sites on Maui. Thanks for the info.

  11. CastilloTube on July 13, 2023 at 9:56 am

    This video inspired me to start YouTube and I will always be grateful for that.

    Karen coffee ☕😆

  13. chris egleston on July 13, 2023 at 9:57 am

    thank you for making this. we spent 10 days there and apparently we missed alot of good things to do. we did take the pineapple tour to get maui gold pinneaples and hit the maui ocean center to see the 3-d whales which is a can’t miss as well. when we go back we will certainly rewatch this video for useful reminders for us mainland folk. lol. thanks again.

  14. Specific Love Creations on July 13, 2023 at 9:58 am

    Thank you so much for putting together all of your videos. We hope to take a trip in the near future and these have been so helpful.

  15. Israel Ornelas on July 13, 2023 at 9:58 am

    Question you said you don’t recommend driving on the Kahakili north west side of the island 🤔, from what I saw on the map it runs along the north east coast of the west maui forest reserve. If I’m staying near the airport, are you recommending driving south and do a huge detour to the blowhole?

  16. Bonnie Hanh-Nhi Nguyen on July 13, 2023 at 9:58 am

    Awesome

  17. Allen Zhao on July 13, 2023 at 9:58 am

    Really appreciate you uploaded this. What time of the year you went there when you shot this? Thanks a lot

  18. Laura E. Laplace on July 13, 2023 at 9:59 am

    I’m going to Hawaii this spring in April! I am so excited to see everything! I can’t wait to see the wildlife! I heard it is beautiful! Can’t wait! Also I’m buying reef safe sunscreen before I go! Have a nice day

  28. Leila D on July 13, 2023 at 10:11 am

    Thank you for sharing. I took a lot of notes down for my upcoming trip to Maui! What kind of camera did you use? Was it the same one you use to shoot while snorkeling?

  29. Matthew Castro on July 13, 2023 at 10:15 am

    Soooo… swim and eat food truck food

  30. Guac playz shorts on July 13, 2023 at 10:16 am

    It has been my dream to go to Maui for years and i really hope I get to go someday

  31. Ken Grant on July 13, 2023 at 10:17 am

    Great overview of Maui – thanks for the fun video – mahalo nui loa

  32. englando08 on July 13, 2023 at 10:17 am

    You forgot watching the sunset at Makena Cove. Its so picturesque.

  33. Matt Reali on July 13, 2023 at 10:19 am

    I got a chance to visit Maui recently a month ago! It was honestly the most beautiful place I’ve ever been to. I stayed in Ka’anapali where a lot of the resorts are of course, and had so much incredible food. Even got to go snorkeling and ziplining. It just makes me wanna live there if it wasn’t extremely expensive..

  34. GiTyNic on July 13, 2023 at 10:19 am

    You’re channel is so great. We took many of your tips when we visited Maui two weeks ago and had a blast. Thank you so much! #aloha #mahalo

  35. The Mexican! on July 13, 2023 at 10:21 am

    Hello guys, I love your channel 😍. I want to ask you why you haven’t mention Ahihi Cove it is a beautiful safe place for snorkeling. Please let me know if you have a video about it and I just haven’t seen it. Stay loose 🤙

  36. Shawn Flynn on July 13, 2023 at 10:23 am

    What car rental do you guys recommend

  37. John Wilkes Booth on July 13, 2023 at 10:23 am

    Was going to go when I was 9 but Covid struck now I’m 14 and we are going in may so excited

  38. Vince C on July 13, 2023 at 10:24 am

    Since when do they let people on black rock?

  39. Alena Mez on July 13, 2023 at 10:27 am

    You forgot the most beautiful place … red sand beach

  40. Oscar Molina outdoor adventures on July 13, 2023 at 10:28 am

    😱😱😍😍🥰🥰❤️❤️

  41. Gary Weliver on July 13, 2023 at 10:32 am

    Does anyone rent drones?

  42. Lebao Yaj on July 13, 2023 at 10:32 am

    What time of the year did you guys go?

  43. Sam & Lulu Wu on July 13, 2023 at 10:32 am

    What is the place showing on the video before you click into it?

  44. Eleanor Applebaum on July 13, 2023 at 10:33 am

    Love love all your videos! Question what is early for parking on the beaches? Would you say 8am is early enough?

  45. Ewelina on July 13, 2023 at 10:33 am

    Really enjoy your videos! Such an amazing help with planning of our trip! Thank you! We would like to visit the Nakalele Blowhole, but you say to avoid Kahekili Hwy. What would be the safest way to get there from Wailuku? Thanks!!

  46. stephanie parsons on July 13, 2023 at 10:35 am

    Can you get to these locations on public transit?

  47. Jill Gregory Hypnotherapy on July 13, 2023 at 10:36 am

    I dont like you guys as I wrote you a question on Instagram about a year ago and never bothered to reply!

  48. Blaxis on July 13, 2023 at 10:40 am

    I am going to Maui in 2023 spring break which is in 8 months. My family just started looking for flights, resorts, and rental cars yesterday. I am so freaking excited. I am stay for about 10 days!

  49. Benny Bonilla on July 13, 2023 at 10:41 am

    This is gonna sound messed up but it has probably happened many times. You dive only to hit a swimming turtle underneath the water. Has this happened?
