Please critique our Maui itinerary!

Jump to last reply

Leaving for Maui on Feb. 10 and just getting around to finalizing everything. We're coming from Chicago but spending 2 nights in Seattle first - hoping that will help w/the jet lag?

I do need some help though sorting everything out, so if you have any suggestions, I'd appreciate them!

Feb. 8-10 Seattle

Sunday Feb. 10 - arrive in Maui 1:30, pick up rental car, do Costco/Walmart for necessities, head to the Hyatt Maui to check in. Merriman's for dinner. Figure this will be an early night to bed.

Monday Feb. 11 - Road to Hana? We thought we'd be up early this morning so it would be a good day to plan this. But then I'm guessing we wouldn't feel like doing anything in the evening, and we have a lot of evening events we want to do (see below) so I don't want the evening stuff to be back of the week heavy. If we do decide to do RtH this day, then I'm guessing we'll be exhausted and dinner will most likely be snacks in the Regency Club!

Tuesday Feb. 12 - Hotel resort day - enjoy the pools. Maybe walk down to the Sheraton and snorkel Black Rock. Have dinner reservations at Mama's Fish House at 5:30.

Wednesday Feb. 13 - Molokini Snorkel tour w/ either Trilogy or Pacific Whale - haven't booked this yet. Any preference one way or the other? Evening plans undecided

Thursday Feb. 14 - Valentine's Day. Our plan is to take the early ferry to Lanai, take the shuttle into Lanai City ,have breakfast, and then meet up with a volunteer from the Lanai Animal Rescue Center. Spend the day there volunteering w/the kitties. Probably try to be back on the 2:00 ferry. Thursday evening's a toughie - I want to do Warren and Annabelle's (late show), but I don't want to eat the food there. So thought we'd make reservations somewhere nearby, because I'm sure everything's going to be packed for V Day. Lahaina Grill is not available. Any suggestions?

Friday Feb. 15 - Shopping day, relax, etc. DH wants to see the 'Ulalena show in Lahaina so we might do that. I really want to eat at Leilani's once so this might be a good night for that.

Saturday Feb. 16 - Up early to check out of hotel and head to airport for a 8:30 flight to Big Island.

We also considered doing the Old Lahaiana Luau, but since we'll be on the Big Island and then Kauai following Maui, we figured we can always do a luau on one of those islands instead.
