Update 9/26:

We have girls spots available. If you don't mind flying out a couple of days later, you can either rent your own private octagon studio or share a one bedroom cottage. Nightly rates are approximately $200 total per night for the studio or approximately $240 total per night for the cottage ($120 pp if you share)

If you would like to join us, a $100 non-refundable deposit is required. This deposit will go towards your lodging cost.

(if interested, add your name to the Wait List and I'll contact you)



Our trip is confirmed for November 24th - December 2nd

Those interested, can come for the entire trip or just a partial stay

Lodging cost is $90 per person/per night for the first five nights

Lodging cost is $70 per person/per night for night #6 on

(The nightly rate was about $110/night per person. I negotiated the rate down to $100 and then negotiated the rate down a second time to $90 and then negotiated the rate down a third time to $70!!!)

Bedrooms will be distributed in the order deposits are received

This is a group trip! If you don't plan on spending the majority of the time with the group and want to go off doing your own thing, please plan your own trip!

Flight times will be the earliest flight out on the outbound and an evening flight for the return so that we can maximize our stay on Maui. If you choose flight times other than those of the group, you will be responsible for your own transportation from/to the airport.

Some of the activities the group will be doing:

  • Rain Forest and Waterfall Hikes - One will be a guided hike
  • Snorkeling
  • Beaches
  • Lahaina
  • Farmer's Markets
  • Eating lots of the local foods
  • Road to Hana
  • Haleakala Bike Tour
  • Enjoy the Maui sunsets - Catamaran Cruise
  • Cocktails
  • More activities TBD

The group will meet at least once before the trip for a meet and greet and to discuss trip details.

    Wow! Now I have to start looking for these Scuba certification coupons!

    August 22, 2012

  • Ankur

    Would love to go to Hawaii. I will probably be scuba diving most of the time :) October would be better (already booked for Belize for November).

    August 13, 2012

    • Ankur

      I'll look for deals in a week or 2. I know a few people and I can have them ask around for deals. Would be nice to know who is certified as a SCUBA diver and who isn't but is interested in diving or something similar (SNUBA/snorkeling). I will most likely bring my SCUBA Under Water Camera and try and take nice pics!

      August 21, 2012

    • Jay

      For anyone going out to Hawaii, it may be a good time to get your SCUBA certification. The water is still pretty warm so it's better to do this now if you have been interested in SCUBA diving. I imagine both the mild temperature and clear visibility makes ideal conditions for SCUBA diving in Hawaii. In any case, if this is in November and I can go, I'll go diving with you and anyone else that is SCUBA certified.
