Leaving Maui in two days, great island with plenty to do. Hiked into a dormant volcano, dove a volcanic island reef, drank $1 happy hour Mai Tai’s, and ate Huli Huli chickens, all on a shoestring! Enjoy.

Small day at Honolua Bay

Absolutely Brilliant!!!!!!!

Bloody Yanks.

Arrived in Maui three days ago, its the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands with a totally different vibe to Kauai. We headed North west to a town called Hana. Hana is on the windy side of the island so no surfing for now.

The road to Hana is famous for the coastal drive through jungles and past waterfalls, it also goes past the tow-in wave JAWS. Yesterday we went to the Haleakala National Park and hiked a 6km trail through a bamboo forest to the Wailua Falls. Pretty epic stuff hearing bamboo belting together in the wind as you cruise through, and being able to watch fresh water meet the ocean. Enjoy the pics.

Maybe a two and half pike????

Locals told us a tourist drowned the day we arrived
