Whaling used to be the focus of west Maui’s main town, Lahaina. These days visitors come to watch whales frolic offshore from Papawai Point.
The low-rise harbor at Lahaina retains quite a few whaling-era buildings, but not much remains from the days when Lahaina was the Hawaiian kingdom’s royal capital.
Take a stroll past the restaurants and shops lining historic Front Street, and take a seat in Banyan Tree Square at the foot of the country’s largest banyan tree, planted in 1873.
This trip was excellent. Dinner and service were also good. Views and scenaries are magnificent. Enjoyed all 4 hours spent on the boat.
enchanting and first class Laua - dont miss this trip!
Brilliant and we got upgraded to a free dinner meal on board.
Lahaina is on the west coast of Maui, looking over to the nearby island of Lanai.
Highway 30 runs north to the resorts of Kaanapali.
