  1. Very detailed and helpful video. Mahalo 🤙! My silly question is…which part of maui has less or no feral chicken? This might be weird but …I am extremely scared of chicken 😰. You won't believe that I drove back to hotel right away when I saw two feral chicken on Wailea Beach 😭😭. And I saw many more feral chicken near Kahului airport 😳 😱. I was freaked out.

  2. Hi! I have a question, is there any sumo heya in Maui we can visit? We love sumo and even when the tradition has diminished, Hawaii and their warriors have a mesmerizing history in the sport. Thank you!

  3. Where was the screen shot for this video taken. I did a painting of the same beach before we went on vacation in Maui. You cans see the video on my YouTube page.

  4. Appreciate you guys for taking the time putting this together. I’ve been to Maui a couple times but never really explored the island. This time around we will be using your video as a “standard” to our adventures!
    Great video guys!

  5. Love your video. We went to Maui in July and loved it. I identified all of the falls (Hana HWY) we saw except the one on your video at 10:26. We pulled over right before the bridge. Can you tell me the name?

  6. Maui or Kauai? I’ve been to Oahu if you wanted to use it as a comparison. Please answer! ❤️ I’m booking a trip today for the end of October

  7. Just returned…stayed the week in Honokowai. We did just about everything: road to Hana, the lava fields at Makena, Kapalua, Kaanapal'i, sunset booze cruise and of course, a few stops for refreshments at Cheeseburger in Paradise! We're already planning our return in 2022.

  8. Omg thank you guys so much for this video, we especially loved how easy and fun you made it look with the baby in every day life, as we are planning our family now as well! My husband and I just got married on Saturday (9/25/21) at Baby Makapuu Beach on Oahu and we still have yet to see Maui. We are seriously considering relocating to Hawaii after our week long adventure there. You are really helping us with navigating where exactly to exploreand live. Thanks!!!!! You're awesome.💟

  9. This is great! Love your videos. My fiancé and I are heading to Maui for our honeymoon next month and this has been super helpful!
