I’m really excited to interview Kim Julen of <<company>> about Maui, Hawaii. Kim’s tips for the best things to do in Maui are awesome because they come from someone who really knows and understands all the things Maui has to offer.
Maui is <<something special about the city>>
We share a lot of resources and local suggestions in today’s podcast, but you should also check out <<CVB>>, the local convention and visitor’s bureau. They are a wealth of information and can help you plan an itinerary based on your time, budget, and interests.
Best Things to Do in Maui
- Maui Visitors Bureau
- Pacific Whale Foundation – For Whale Watching tours I recommend Pacific Whale Foundation, not only because they have very knowledgeable guides (certified Marine Naturalists) and underwater hydrophones (so you can hear the whales singing) but because all profits from their cruises, as well as our Ocean Store retail operations, support Pacific Whale Foundation’s research, education and conservation programs.
- Road To Hana (reviews) – Road to Hana – if you stay over 2 nights you’ll save $$.

Getting around Maui
The local airport is <<airport>>, which is <<distance>>very close to downtown.
Kim Julen says that you will want a car when you visit. There isn’t public transportation available and many attractions are close, but not necessarily walking distance.
