Default Heading to Maui pretty soon...any advice on things to do?

Hey all you Mauians!

I'll be heading over pretty soon with my wife and kid for a small holiday/business trip over in Maui. We're taking the Super Ferry over, and it looks like there's not any racing going on when I'll be there, so I was wondering if any of you could suggest some cool stuff to do?

My sister is house-sitting for us, so we're gonna go gung ho when we get there. Small problem is that my wife has to go to some convention stuff during the morning and a bit of the afternoon. So whatever we do will be later on in the day, plus we'll have our kid with us, so I'm not sure if that limits our options.

I'll have my own transportation though, so that's a good thing. Any suggestions, let me know!

Maui Ocean Center.

So cool. I don't know how many aquariums you've been to, Mike, but the Maui Ocean Center is one of the nicest in Hawaii, and I think one of the newest, too.

Sea turtles, hammerhead sharks up close, touch tank, a huge ocean tank with Hawaii's only living Tiger Shark in captivity (I think it's over 10 feet by now), with that wild clear tube running through it, but I spent a good 45 minutes with my son looking at the open-ocean fish (awa, ulua) that are HUGE and look so cool in an aquarium setting. Plenty of things to do, to eat, and to see there.

I don't know what your time element is while you're there, but of course, if you are able to (all morning from 3 am), you ought to drive to Haleakala Crater, the "house of the sun". It's HUGE when you get to the summit, and the size of the crater is humbling. Watching the sun rise "out" of the crater is a must-do if you can.

And don't forget to take a picture or wave "hi" when you are passing us (Molokai), we'll be to your left when you are sailing through the channel; that is, if you guys go south of Molokai. I don't know if they're going North now, since whale season starts pretty soon...

Have fun on Maui!

Some boring the stuff u guys bring up! LOL..

depending on how many days u staying.. here's a few places 4 go

The typical
-haleakala sunset/sunrise
-Maui Ocean Center (nothing to "hoo-ra" about.. i been there like 4x for field trips and bleh.. im a fishermen/diver and even that place bores me.. i guess u gotta kinda be old and never seen fish in your life to enjoy the place.. lol.. but going in a group/gf/bf is pretty fun/romantic (oh my what am i saying!?)

The others
-Big Beach (a nice beach with mostly locals on a good day, about 1/2 mile or 3/4 mile stretch of white sand.. MEAN .. i like 3rd entrance.. bring an ugly car, no leave expensive things inside.. this place gets jacked like 10x a day)
-Little Beach (if you and your wife wanna go caveman style.. plenny hippie nudies/sex shows)
-Iao Valley
-Kaahumanu Mall (better than Maui Mall, seriously.. LOL)
-Turtle Town (bring snorkles.. this place is nice.. small kine choke sharks.. but plenny turtles.. this is where 1/2 the snorkeling CO's bring their visitors)
-Throw BBQ @ Polo Beach
-Black Rock (jump off cliffs) Behind Westin

Places to Eat
-Cafe O'Lei
-Maui Eats
-cant think of more right now but yea

An Eye for an Eye Makes the Whole World Blind.

Default Top Things to do on Maui

Braddah's recommendations are spot on. I'd definitely hit up Hana, Haleakala, Big / Little beach, Maui ocean center, Snorkeling at Turtle Town and Molokini, and Cafe O' Lei in Kihei!
