  1. Erica and Jordan. Totally awesome channel. Thank you for the great tips and advice. Great videos. Loved the graphs. We went to Kauai (Poipu Hyatt) for our Honeymoon and want to return. We wanted to go back for our 25th wed anniv and potentially visit Maui but the cost seemed very high. Your video helped us decide that it was worth it. It is obvious you guys love what you do and make a great team! Stay Happy! Thank You so much!!

  2. Hi, love all your videos. Ive been binge watching for our upcoming vaca. Do you happen to know where we can rent a boat? We dont want a guided tour. Thanks so much for your help

  3. Just got back from Maui, these clips must have been during covid. I would love to see empty beaches! Insane amount of people in Maui right now

  4. Island is too packed. You can only fit so many people on an island. The ratio to tourists to locals is 1:1 which is ridiculous. Instead of thinking of your vacation, think of the locals struggling to live here because of tourists ignorance.

  5. Have you guys also thought of doing island tours? I've been to Maui already but even after watching this we missed a good chunk too. Give it some thought! I would love to have Paul Rudd do a tour!

  6. From a local. Not a bad video, all I gotta say is if you're gonna tell people to take the Hana Highway slowly, be sure to tell them about the 1,000 places you can pull over to get da fuck out of our way too. We have places to go, sometimes we are in an emergency and need to get to town ASAP and we will get out of our trucks and throw your phone of the fuckin cliff and make you move if we have to. Enjoy your stay🤙

  7. Hi! I must have missed it but couldn’t find the links for where you guys stayed in the camper vans! We’re visiting first week of July wi a camper van rental and seems like a lot of camp grounds are closed! Any recommendations on where to park and camp in a van?

  8. We are in Maui and just had a pie (maybe two) from Leoda’s! Great too thanks! We also went on Kai Kanani and did the sunrise snorkel this morning!

  9. Great videos, happy to have found you. Want to see Hawaii and it will be the only visit, so really want to see all (or most) of the highlights. Been to a travel agent…kinda $$$$, considering a tour group. 2 friends, 71 and 67. Love swimming, some hiking, etc. Your thoughts?
