kind of plan a trip for yourself so to
speak when would be the best time that
you would want to visit maui
well it’s always a great time to visit
maui
the most popular time i
think is january february march
and that’s the best time to come if you
want to see the whales
because the humpback whales are here
especially over the coast of west maui
um so that’s a fantastic time to come in
the winter
but
if you want to come during a time that’s
maybe a little less busy but also
quite beautiful um
end of august september october
may are also
great times to come i mean there’s never
a total off season but it might be
um
you know a little less busy then and the
water is calm in the summer in general i
mean unless we have a
some kind of storm in the ocean but
