Magical W

hile you can snorkel right off your hotel’s beach, excursions aboard well-equipped vessels provide access to underwater Mecca’s such as Molokini volcanic crater, three miles off Maui’s south shore. Here is the cradle of life. The arms of an eroded cinder cone embrace a tropical ecosystem where rainbow fish are tame and where eels and turtles dance in their personal playground. Morning and afternoon snorkel trips and dive charters to Molokini depart from Lahaina and Mä‘alaea harbors. A bonus for staying on Maui is easy access to Läna‘i and Moloka‘i. These islands enjoy their own unique society and ambiance. Moloka‘i is the way Hawai‘i used to be: mom and pop stores, farming, fishing, hunting. Known as “The Friendly Isle” for its hospitality, Moloka‘i is accessible through flights from Kahului airport and ferry from Lahaina. Ground tours are available, including visits to St. Damien’s mission at Kalaupapa. A visit to Läna‘i offers golden sands and snorkeling at Hulopo‘e Bay, a marine preserve popular with porpoises. Läna‘i is known as “Hawai‘i’s Private Island” because it is almost exclusively owned by Larry Ellison. For a hundred years pineapple was the base of the island’s economy. Today cheaper pineapples from the Third World has forced Läna‘i to rely on tourism. Now the major employers for the island’s population of about 3,000 people are two five-star resorts. On the way to Läna‘i you’ll see Maui’s dramatic panorama of mountains and valleys accented by spontaneous prisms of glowing rainbows. There’s something special about experiencing Maui from the ocean. Perhaps it calls forth an ancestral link to seafaring relatives or perhaps it’s the sea air appetite that enhances the delicious foods they serve on board. Maui’s spectrum of activities and opportunities for adventure are unsurpassed. Of course a good deal of time is spent at the pool

Maui or on the beach. Our world-class resorts are oases of fun and relaxation. But venturing beyond the manicured lawns and organized comforts for a day brings a unique perspective of Maui. There are few day trips in the United States that can compare to going to Haleakalä. Meaning “House of the Sun,” Haleakalä is a vast eroded valley of volcanic rock formed 1 million years ago. Eruptions as recent as 800 years ago created lava flows and cinder cones that rise up to 1,000 feet off the valley floor. Getting to Haleakalä is an experience in itself. Journey from the beach to cowboy country, through proteas and jacarandas, onward to silverswords and space stations at the summit. These movie-like transitions pluck chords within, orchestrating vivid memories to be recalled again and again back home. Haleakalä Visitor Center at 9,745 ft. offers interesting exhibits and views of multi-hued cinder cones reaching skyward, towering peaks embraced by silvery clouds and panoramas of the Big Island’s sometimes snow-capped volcanoes, Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. Haleakalä road (Hwy. 378) holds the world record for climbing to the highest elevation in the shortest distance (38 miles). Every August there’s a “Cycle to the Sun” race where athletes pedal for several hours uphill to the summit. However, there is an easier way to enjoy Mt. Haleakalä, — a downhill bicycle cruise. Descending the mountain you become one with the landscape. A vista at every curve, new smells, old flashbacks. This is the kind of hill you always dreamed about when you were a kid. And up here age doesn’t matter. That feeling coming through the handlebars is the same as it was twenty, thirty, even fifty years ago. A van takes you above the clouds near the summit where you are given your bike and safety gear. Or you can take a self-guided tour to cruise around at your own pace.

Honoring Hawai`i’s Two Saints from one of Hawai‘i’s most remote destinations Story and photos courtesy of Pacific Historic Parks

H

ow could Kalaupapa, one of Hawai‘i’s most beautiful and remote destinations, become the location behind the heroic stories of Hawai‘i’s only two saints? Although the story of Kalaupapa is known by all those raised in Hawai‘i, the magnitude of the suffering and the amazing deeds of a few were never taught in detail. Now, Hawai‘i and the world are about to embrace its second Saint of Kalaupapa, as Pope Benedict XVI canonizes Mother Marianne Cope on Oct. 21, 2012. Kalaupapa, on the island of Moloka‘i, is a small peninsula of land surrounded by sheer cliffs. That made it the perfect location for the Territory of Hawai‘i to deposit unfortunate individuals who had become infected with Hansen’s disease, also known as leprosy throughout the world. Father Damien De Veuster and Mother Marianne Cope sacrificed themselves and gave up everything when each made a one-way trip to Kalaupapa Settlement. These two selfless individuals provided comfort and medical assistance to thousands of people in Hawai‘i who suffered from this chronic disease. Today, the National Park Service operates Kalaupapa National Historical Park and has restored many of the original buildings and churches just as they were when they were first built. A limited number of visitors are allowed to Kalaupapa each day to take advantage of a fascinating escorted tour of this historical and beautiful destination. For more information on Kalaupapa National Historical Park, its two Saints of Hawai‘i or Damien Tours, please visit www.nps.gov/kala/ or www.PacificHistoricParks.org. Spotlight’s Maui Gold Magazine

UV

rays can hurt your skin in more ways than one. Just a few serious sunburns can increase your risk of getting skin cancer. And, over time, UVA exposure can make your skin wrinkled and leathery. So, before heading out into Hawai‘i’s outdoors, do yourself a favor. Protect the skin you’re in. Listed below are a few guidelines to help you and your family keep cool and healthy while on vacation or at home.

Sun Protection:

• Apply a reef-friendly sunscreen and lip balm with UVA and UVB Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 30; apply at least 30 minutes prior to going outside. Reapply every two hours, even when it’s cloudy. • Wear protective clothing a broad-brimmed hat and tight woven clothing like a long-sleeved shirt and pants. • Wear sunglasses that block at least 99% of all UV rays. • Avoid the midday sun from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. • Keep babies less than 6 months old out of the sun and do not apply sunscreen to their skin. For children older than 6 months old, use sunscreen specially made for children. • For sensitive skin: use PABA-Free sunscreens with either zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.

If Sunburned:

• Cool and soothe the skin with a cold damp cloth or ice cubes. • If sunburn covers a large area, immerse the body in a cool Aveeno powder bath that coats and soothes the skin. • Aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen reduces inflammation, itching and also dulls the pain. • Drink lots of water or juice to replace body fluids. • If suffering from severe (blistering) sunburn, see a doctor immediately.

DO NOT:

• Use any product containing “-caine” ingredients; doing so may cause an allergic reaction in some people. • Lubricate the skin with suntan oil while exposed to the sun. Suntan oil can actually magnify the harmful effects of the sun.

Mofl02

w/ MO2 delivers fresh air on every breath. Here’s how it works: as you know, trading CO2 (exhale) for O2 (inhale) occurs in billions of alveoli cells in the bronchial tubes & lungs, but not in the 4-6 inches from the trachea to the mouth hole—the stretch known as dead air space. A primitive snorkel triples dead air space, so you re-breathe the same air, which is like wearing the same sox or not changing your skivvies. Burning lungs with a heavy heart & head afflict the snorkeler breathing CO2. Do you really feel like sighing in an elevator? Now comes the FRESH-AIR SNORKEL:

Mofl02™

The answer to “Where did you get that?” isn’t a store. It’s a story.

The fun begins by choosing your oyster from the bucket. Next, the ring of a bell and shout of “Aloha!” and there’s your genuine pearl. Then select a beautiful sterling silver or gold setting, perhaps a ring, pendant or matching earrings. Your pearl will be mounted as you watch. And not only will you have an elegant piece of fine jewelry, but a memory to share with friends – and each other – forever. Original. Authentic. And part of Hawaii for more than 30 years.

Always heed posted warning signs — they may save your life.

T

he ocean is never more inviting than in Hawai‘i, but don’t take it for granted. During winter months, south-facing shores are generally calm while the northern shores usually have rougher surf and riptides. The opposite is often true in summer. To be safe in all seasons, beachgoers should keep the following tips in mind. Pick a beach with a lifeguard. Keep in mind that county lifeguards are on duty from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at only eight of Maui’s beach parks* and that they can’t watch everyone all the time. Beaches fronting resorts may have their own lifeguards. Ask lifeguards or locals about conditions. Before jumping in, examine the ocean. Ask yourself, “Is there anyone else in the water?” — if not, find out why! Study the waves, their frequency and size; look for currents and riptides. If you don’t know the difference between a riptide and Rip Taylor, please ask a lifeguard about the current conditions and which areas to avoid. Remember: IF IN DOUBT, DON’T GO OUT! Pay attention to signs posted on coastal areas. Ocean conditions can change radically in a short time. Signs are posted, when possible, to save you from harm! They may warn about large waves, undertows, slippery rocks, sharks, jellyfish, and other hazardous conditions. Read and heed! Stay on dry sand, sea walls or rocks and never turn your back on the ocean. Large waves can sweep you off the beach or rocks and pull you out to deep water without warning. Respect Mother Nature and use commons sense. Don’t take risks like posing for a picture in the ocean with big surf breaking in the background. If you see someone in trouble, find a lifeguard or call 911 and report the location and situation. *To find out which beaches have lifeguards, call Maui County Ocean Safety at 808 270-6136 or you can download the “County of Maui Ocean Safety Flyer” from the web page is.gd/7aCC-.

Going to the Beach? Check it out! Everyone knows that the beach is where the fun is, but Hawai‘i’s oceans are strong and can turn fun into tragedy. So, use care and caution for all water activities. Always read and obey beach safety signs, they could save your life. For more information, go to is.gd/MauiOcean-. This message brought to you by Hawai‘i’s lifeguards — and the State Department of Health. Spotlight’s Maui Gold Magazine

Atlantis Submarines

tlantis Submarines recently celebrated its 22nd anniversary of taking passengers to see the magic of Hawai‘i’s undersea world. Here on Maui, Atlantis offers submarine tours daily with departures from Lahaina Harbor. The cruise out to the Atlantis Submarines dive site off Lahaina is beautiful, with majestic views of Maui, Molo­ka‘i and Läna‘i. It is the perfect introduction to an underwater submarine adventure that is teeming with beauti­f ul, fascinating and unique species of tropical sea life. In 2005, Atlantis Submarines sank the Carthaginian, a replica whaling ship and former Lahaina tourist attraction, in an area devoid of coral reef. Secured to the bottom in an upright position 95 feet below the surface, the vessel enhances the viewing experience as a self-sustaining habitat for schools of tropical fish, coral and other marine life. Atlantis Submarines can stretch your dollars with their Lü‘au & Sub Combo, Snorkel & Sub Combo, Upper Zipline or Lower Zipline and Sub Combo and, from December to May, the Submarine and Whale Watch Combo. Also, ask about the Maui Value Pass that offers four of the island’s top attractions at one low price. See page 111, call 808 667-7942 or go to AtlantisSubmarines.com.

Historic Pa¯ ‘ia Town

S

cenic Pä‘ia on Maui’s North Shore offers just about everything a traveler seeks: quaint shops, fantastic restaurants and numerous beaches suitable for a variety of water activities. Away from the hustle and bustle of Lahaina and Kïhei, Pä‘ia is a laid-back little beach town with something for everyone. Historic Pä‘ia town was once a booming plantation town, with remnants of an old sugar mill still visible just up Baldwin Avenue (see Maps 9 & 10). Many of its old plantation-style wooden buildings, complete with the vibrant color schemes, are still intact. Inside are an array of boutiques, surf shops, art galleries and even an old-fashioned tattoo parlor. With warm hospitality and friendly service, the atmosphere is unlike that of any other town on Maui. Pä‘ia has a variety of dining options — coffee shops, Pacific Rim, Continental, Mexican, Indian, sushi, pizza, burgers, vegetarian, seafood, and more. Many of the restaurants offer a fun late-night scene as well. Pä‘ia is also a great place to pick up a picnic lunch for a road trip to Häna. Besides great food and shopping, Pä‘ia is known for its beaches. Baldwin Beach Park has one of the most beautiful white sand beaches on Maui and offers full facilities, including showers and lifeguards. It’s great for swimming, beachcombing and relaxing. If that’s not what you want, check out Pä‘ia Bay and Tavares Bay, just look for the parking lots visible from Häna Highway. Pick up your surfing or windsurfing gear at one of the several surf shops in town. Just past Pä‘ia on Häna Highway is Ho‘okipa Beach Park, one of the world’s best spots to watch surfers and windsurfers. While this beach also offers lifeguards, entering the water at this beach, even just for swimming, is usually left to the experts. Check with the lifeguards before heading out. Many people stop in Pä‘ia town on their way to Häna or Upcountry, only to find they should have allocated more time here. When planning your trip, remember that Pä‘ia is a mellow little town, with most stores opening late (10 a.m.) and closing early (5 p.m.). However, most stores, boutiques and galleries stay open later on the fourth Friday of the month for the Pä‘ia Friday Town Party. For details, check PaiaMaui.com, MauiFridays.com or call 808 270-7710.

HÄNA

and it’s long and winding road

If ever you could drive to heaven, Maui’s the place to do it! Known around the world as “Heavenly Häna” this area of Maui is an authentic tropical paradise.

L

Photos by Wayne Shinbara

ike all good things there is a challenge involved in getting there. The Häna road meanders along Maui’s northern coastline, hugging precipitous cliffs and plunging into lush valleys, punctuated by streams and waterfalls tumbling into idyllic pools. An engineering feat in itself, the road boasts approximately 617 curves and crosses 56 one-lane bridges before straightening out just before Häna. Be sure to fill up with gas before leaving Pä‘ia. The journey is like passing through some giant’s botanical garden for at almost every corner is the habitat of exotic bamboo groves, koa and kukui nut trees, banana patches, clusters of anthuriums and wild ginger. Driving time is about three hours each way and it’s advisable to get an early start. The Häna area (population 3500) was once a bustling agricultural center until the sugar plantation was closed in 1944. Now Häna residents regard their isolation as a precious resource and the area has attracted such stars as Oprah Winfrey, who has pledged to keep her land undeveloped. Sights in Häna include the century-old lava rock Wänanalua Church, Ka‘uiki Head fortress and the birthplace of Kamehameha’s favorite wife Queen Ka‘ahumanu. The land that was once sugar cane fields is now home to grassfed cattle belonging to the Häna Ranch, which rests among rolling hills of lush grazing land. Also in town is the legendary Hotel Häna Maui offering luxury and serenity. On the way to Kïpahulu, 10 miles south of Häna and part of Haleakalä National Park, Wailuä Gulch offers two splendid waterfalls and a nearby “virgin by the roadside,” a famous Catholic shrine. Once at ‘Ohe‘o Gulch (in Kïpahulu), you can view the famous pools cascading down to the sea and walk on trails through bamboo forest, home of some rare Hawaiian birds and plants. There are so many waterfalls and pools that this tropical sanctuary might be described as “heaven on earth,” but be aware that flash flooding from rain far up the mountain is always a possibility.

Power of Canoes Descent and rule are interconnected in Hawai‘i. One’s mana (strength of energy) is mostly inherited and power is determined by genealogy. Hawaiians were seafaring people who traversed thousands of miles of open ocean by wooden canoe using star systems to navigate. They preserved in oli (chant) stories which describe where they’ve been and where they’re from. It’s these voyaging tales travelled by canoe that allowed mana to flow so descendants could trace their journey. Author Samuel Kamakau and others surmised that Mauiborn mythical voyager Laka needed a magical canoe to reach the cave dwelling of a cannibal demon who enslaved his family’s mana by keeping his father’s bones. Laka’s relatives, woodland gods of construction, supplied the outrigger canoe he required. By slaying the demon and burying his father’s bones in his new homeland of O‘ahu, Laka restored his family’s mana and left his canoe as a tribute. All things powerful were deemed worthy of tribute to nature. The canoe was not just a means of transportation but a vessel which carried power and was empowered by those within it. Throughout Polynesian legend, themes of finding one’s homeland persist — without an identity, the future is grim. Pola, the center of a canoe, is derivative of Polapola, a mythical place in the East beyond the “manycolored sea,” a place ancient Hawaiian oration describes as being the homeland of Hawai‘i’s earliest settlers. by Sean Russell

SNORKELING SAFETY & Reef Etiquette by Snorkel Bob

8.

9. 10. 11. 12.

13.

Snorkeling is a buddy sport. You help your buddy, she helps you. Assess surf, current, wave sets, surge, reef and rocks before entering. This is snorkel meditation. Never turn your back on the ocean. It’ll whomp you when you least expect it; Duck or dive under breaking waves before they reach you to avoid their force. Enter and exit from sandy beach areas. Do not use sunscreen in the water. It washes off and kills coral polyps. Consider a Sunblock T and a swim cap. Avoid wana (pronounced “vanna”), black sea urchins whose spines break of f in your skin. Use aspirin for sunburn; peroxide and antiseptic ointment for reef rash; and cigarette tobacco, meat tenderizer (except for MSG allergenics) and Benadryl for man-o-war, which is like a bee sting. Making shishi on stings also kills pain and other trauma, but I, Snorkel Bob, know this can sorely test a friendship. Don’t stand or walk on coral. Adjust your mask strap before entering water. Be aware of your fins at all times. Don’t touch coral with your fingers, elbows, knees, butt or fins. Each tiny polyp is an animal too fragile for human touch. Never swim against a current. Cross it diagonally. If you get caught in a current, wave for help. DON’T PANIC. Avoid snorkeling at dusk. Don’t snorkel in a strong offshore wind. Feeding fish disrupts the natural balance, making ocean critters co-dependent, so don’t do it. Assume stewardship of the reefs. All humans on Planet E can claim a cultural heritage to our reef. Each reef is a community, with social order, home boundaries & family groups. The Hawaii aquarium trade has no limit on its catch, no limit on its number of catchers and no constraints on rare, endemic or vanishing species. All reefs are one reef. Aquarium collecting is strip-mining the world’s reefs. If you have an aquarium or know someone who does, urge them NOT to replace the fish and move on to a new hobby. Don’t do this, don’t do that–Have a nice day, I mean, really.

ou can see humpback whales splashing and spouting in the ocean from the beach and the golf course, so why not get a closer look at them from a whale-watch cruise? There are many companies offering cruises with prices to fit most budgets. Departures are usually from Mä‘alaea Harbor in the Central Maui area and Lahaina Harbor (above) in West Maui. Most of the cruises last around two hours, see the ads in this magazine for details. O‘ahu-based freelance photographer Wayne Shinbara has gone on tours with several different companies over the years. He shares some of his photos and offers tips below. • Keep your camera handy as the boat leaves the harbor, you’ll get great views of Maui’s southern coastline and maybe see a rainbow now and then. There may even be a surprise ahead — like a Hawaiian monk seal sunbathing on the harbor breakwater. A good crew will spot these photo ops for their passengers and try to give everyone a chance to get a shot. • I use a 70-200mm zoom, often with a teleconverter to double the zoom range. When whales come up close to the boat, use a wide-angle zoom such as a 10-20mm or higher. By the way, it helps to have a lens like an 18-200mm or similar zoom ratio, then you don’t have to switch lenses. You would hate to have a lens fall into the ocean if you were changing lenses when the boat rocked! • Use 100 ISO if it is super bright on the ocean. But with a rocking boat and a long lens, it is best to use 400 ISO, a faster shutter speed (1/1000+) and higher f-stop (8+) to avoid camera shake and to have a longer depth of field. • You may not have the best sightings on your first cruise, so take another if you can. Good luck and happy shooting!

mpressively authentic, the Old Lähaina Lü‘au experience will virtually take you back in time. Imagine yourself in ancient Lahai­ na, enjoying a traditional Hawaiian feast under the stars. Lahaina was the center of royal activity on Maui, where great Kings and Queens entertained their guests with oli (chants), mele (songs), captivating hula, and genuine ho‘okipa (hospi­ tality). The Old Lähaina Lü‘au invites you to such an evening of fun and absolute relaxation. Leave the cell phones behind and just “Hang Loose” Hawaiian style. pon arrival, you are greet­ ed with fresh flower lei, tropical beverages, and sincere aloha. Before the show, feel free to explore the spa­ cious lü‘au grounds fash­ ioned after an ancient Hawaiian vil­ lage by the sea, complete with thatched-roof huts, lava rock walls, and wooden canoes. The pre-show activities include a coconut cutting demonstration, poi pounding, kapa cloth mak­ ing, Hawaiian made arts and crafts, and the ever-popular imu (underground oven) ceremony. Everyone is invited to gather for the unearthing of the kälua pua‘a (roast pork) from the traditional imu, where it has been cooking since early morning. The results are well worth the time! Guests are escorted to the hale ‘ai (eating house) for a satisfying, bountiful buffet of island cuisine, including the melt-in-your-mouth kälua pork (a must taste), baked mahimahi, guava chicken, teriyaki steak, lomilomi salmon, rice, sweet potatoes, a variety of sal­ ads, sauteed vegetables, banana bread, haupia (coconut pudding), and more. Desserts and coffee are later served at your table and an open cocktail bar is available throughout the evening.

Ancient hula told a story and was also a form of communication with the gods. The arrival of the mis­ sionaries brought many changes. At one point hula was discouraged and nearly banned, yet in 1882 King Kaläkaua insisted that hula be performed once again, in public, at his coronation ceremony. The Old Lähaina Lü‘au takes you through these historic moments with inter­ esting narration from ancient times up through the glamorous, modern day shake, rattle, and roll “Holly­ wood Hula” of the movies. For over two decades, the Old Lähaina Lü‘au team has worked hard to capture the essence of old Hawai‘i, earning them the Hawai‘i Visitors and Convention Bureau’s “Kähili” (Keep it Hawai‘i) Award, many times. The show presents the best of the old and new with advan­ tages such as state-of-the-art lighting and hi-tech surround sound. The seating has also been carefully planned as all tables have an ocean view and plenty of elbow room. magine, once again, gathering at this festive Hawaiian party; sipping cool tropical delights and basking in the gentle evening trade winds, as talented musi­ cians and bright young dancers share their culture with swaying hips and graceful hands.

Stroll down Front Street, Lahaina’s main drag, and you can’t miss the two-story house where the Reverend Dwight Baldwin and his family lived from 1838 to 1870. It holds the distinction of being the oldest house on Maui. Restored in 1966 by the nonprofit Lahaina Restoration Foun­ dation, whose mission is to “restore, maintain and interpret the physical, his­ torical and cultural legacy of Lahaina,” the Baldwin Home offers a fascinating glimpse of 1850s mission­ ary life. Baldwin Home photo courtesy of Displayed within its John Pierre’s Studio. two-foot-thick coral and lava rock walls are many original pieces, including Reverend Baldwin’s medical instruments, his wife Charlotte’s rocking chair and sewing chest, an octant, a four-poster koa bed, and a portrait of Baldwin painted for $15 in 1847 by J.B. Knapp, a whaler in Honolulu. 120 Dickenson St., Lahaina (See Map 6). Open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Candlelit Tours 6 to 9 p.m. Fridays. Admission fee.

Lahaina Heritage Museum

Housed on the second floor of the Old Lahaina Court­ house, the Lahaina Heritage Museum chronicles the town’s history through changing themed exhibits. The Courthouse was built in 1859 of timber and stones salvaged from King Kamehameha III’s palace, Hale Piula, which was destroyed in a windstorm in 1858. The exhibit “Lahaina’s Whaling Days and Whales Today” makes the history of Lahaina come alive.

Lahaina

Story by Cheryl Chee Tsutsumi

has been a hot spot, both literally and figuratively, since ancient times. Its name translates from Hawaiian as “cruel sun,” and while this may seem too harsh of a description, it’s true it’s a rare day when it’s not warm, sunny and dry in this picturesque seaside town. Long ago, the ali‘i (Hawaiian royalty) recog­ nized Lahaina’s calm, blue waters were ideal for swim­ ming, canoeing, fishing and surf­ ing. They came h e re o f t e n t o relax and play.

Traders came, then whalers and missionaries. Noting its importance as a stop along Pacific sea routes, King Kamehameha established Lahaina as the first capital of the Hawaiian kingdom in 1802. During whaling’s heyday in the mid-1840s, more than 400 ships moored in Lahaina every year. While the vessels were being reprovisioned, their crews enjoyed shore leave to the full­ est. “For a few days, they raised hell at the port of Lahaina,” writes Maxine Mrantz in her book, “Hawaii’s Whaling Days.”

Although the town proper measures just one-and-a-half miles long and a few blocks deep, it is chock-full of intriguing diversions, includ­ ing 19th-century historic sights, fine art galleries, trendy boutiques, souvenir shops, and award-winning restaurants. There are also many museums that tell the story of whalers, mis­ sionaries and other immigrants. Lahaina hosts several annual events coordinated by the non-profit LahainaTown Action Committee whose mis­ sion is to promote, preserve and encourage the historical, cultural, social, commercial and environmental vitality and significance of Lahaina town. Among them are the Ocean Arts Festival in March, the Banyan Tree Birthday Party in April, Na Kamehameha Pä‘ü Parade & Ho‘olaule‘a in June, 4th of July Fireworks, Halloween on Front Street, and the Holiday Lighting of the Banyan Tree in December.

3. HALEAKALÄ SUMMIT Haleakalä National Park, seen by a million visitors a year. Dormant volcano’s vast moon-like cratered floor with its towering cinder cones is a geological wonder. Witness views of the Big Island from 10,023 feet.

Maui is known as the, “Valley Isle” and, more recently, “The Magic Isle.” Haleakalä, the 10,023–foot high dormant volcano dom­ inates the East side of Maui, rising above the resorts of Kïhei, Wailea and Mäkena. The West Maui Mountains watch over the resort areas of Lahaina, Kä‘anapali and Kapalua on the West. Many of Maui’s 135,605 residents live in the valley between these two mountains (the Wailuku/Kahului area) and on the slopes of Haleakalä. Wailuku is the county seat of Maui County which includes the island of Läna‘i, Moloka‘i and Kaho‘olawe. Popular visitor activities on Maui include coasting down Haleakalä on a mountain bike, golfing, whale watching in winter, and taking boat cruises to swimming and snorkeling areas.

F

rom Market Street to Front Street, from Baldwin Avenue to Häna Highway, Maui Friday Town Parties celebrates art, music and Maui culture. The concept was developed by Maui County to showcase the island’s historic towns and their unique communities. It is a safe, fun community-minded way for both residents and visitors to kick off the weekend and enjoy Maui’s small-town ambiance. Wailuku First Friday. Market Street (Map 1) may be closed to traffic on First Fridays, but it’s packed with musicians, magicians, food vendors, crafters and artisans. With live music at several stages, it’s no wonder thousands attend each gathering and the County expanded it to other towns. 808 878-1888 or Facebook.com/wailukufirstfriday. Lahaina Second Friday. If it’s the Second Friday of the month, there’s a party in Lahaina (Map 6)! Fascinating museums (admission fee), the lively art and entertainment scene, and historic sites present a perfect backdrop for these free Friday community parties. A concert in Campbell Park and merchant and restaurant specials round out the event. Facebook.com/LahainaTownParties. Makawao Third Friday. This paniolo town may be small, but it’s unmistakably big on charm. Nestled against a sea of rolling green, Makawao (Map 9) comes alive on the Third Friday with artists, dancing, entertainment and food vendors at this free event. It’s a beautiful blending of the old timers and newcomers. Facebook.com/makawao. Pa ¯‘ia Fourth Friday. Known for its independent and free-spirited community, Pä‘ia (Map 9) has evolved from the former home of the sugar industry to a cosmopolitan beach town. With its eclectic mix of galleries, tattoo parlors, eateries and surf shops, the streets of Pä‘ia are rockin’ on the Fourth Friday. And, there are many opportunities for rubbing shoulders with celebrities! Facebook.com/paiatown. Town parties run from 6 to 9 p.m. but restaurants, bars and some venues are open later.

pearl factory. Want to find hidden treasure here in the islands?

An island tradition for nearly 30 years, Pearl Factory is a unique experience that draws return visitors vacation after vacation. After selecting an oyster, the ringing of a bell and a shout of “Aloha!” signals the unveiling of a pearl treasure right before your eyes.

Wailuku, located just west of Kahului at the entrance to ‘Ïao Valley, is the county seat of Maui County. It is home to many state and county offices and court houses and was where islanders shopped, dined and were entertained before the advent of shopping malls and resort areas. Ka‘ahumanu Congregational Church (right) on South High Street was erected in 1876 to honor King Kamehameha’s queen, the powerful ali’i (ruler) Ka’ahumanu, who was influential in establishing Christianity in the islands. The Historic ‘Ïao Theatre on North Market Street opened in 1928 and is home to productions by Maui OnStage and other community or professional groups.

Stroll down Market Street from 6 to 9 p.m. on the first Friday of the month, rain or shine, and you may see keiki hula on a street corner, people dancing to live music in outdoor courtyards, booths with arts, crafts and food for sale, or a medium conducting a psychic reading. Wailuku First Friday was started in October 2007 by the Wailuku Community Association and has grown to be a popular pau hana (after work) celebration attracting hundreds of people each month. It has also spawned an entire month of Maui Friday Town Parties around the island, see page 68 or MauiFridays.com. Market Street, from Vineyard to Main streets, is closed to traffic so you can walk around and enjoy the activities safely. Boutiques, stores and galleries stay open later than usual with entertainment, special sales, opening receptions or demonstrations. Restaurants and spots like the ‘Ïao Theater may have entertainment that can continue into the night. The main stage is at Maui Thing, 7 N. Market St., and an event map is available from First Friday merchants. On-street parking is free after 5 p.m. and there is a municipal lot with free parking a half block up from the corner of Market and Vineyard. There is also free parking at Maui Medical Group on Main Street. For details, call 808 878-1888 or 808 249-9710. Spotlight’s Maui Gold Magazine

• 1 pound beef (sirloin, flank, sirloin tips, etc.) thinly sliced • 1 onion, wedged • 2 stalks celery, cut diagonally in thick slices

• 2 green peppers, wedged • 1 to 2 tomatoes, wedged • 2 stalks green onion, cut in 1 1⁄2 inch lengths • Oil for frying

Marinade: • 1 inch piece fresh ginger, crushed • 1 clove garlic, crushed • 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

• 2 tablespoon soy sauce • 1 tablespoon sherry • pinch of pepper • 1 tablespoon cornstarch • 1 tablespoon oil

Gravy: • 1 tablespoon cornstarch • 1 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar

• 1 tsp Worcestershire® sauce • 1 tablespoon catsup (or more to your taste)

Soak beef slices in marinade for 15 to 20 minutes. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in pan or wok and stir-fry round onion, celery, and bell pepper on medium-high for about 2 minutes. Season with salt to your taste. Add tomatoes and cook an additional minute. Remove from pan. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in the same pan and sauté beef until medium rare. Remove garlic and ginger.

Got Fish! When

Open Ocean Fish Weighing from 10 to 250 pounds, this fish can be ordered broiled, baked, seared or sauteed. During winter, the fat content and red color make it desirable as sashimi (raw). When cooked, the flesh can be described as full-flavored, firm and “meat-like” in texture with a ‘Ahi (Yellowfin Tuna) white to a somewhat creamy color.

This fish has firm white meat that, when cooked, has a delicate flaky texture and an almost sweet, aromatic flavor. It is used as a substitute for Mahimahi and is one of the best fish for smoking.

Ono (Wahoo)

Males have wedge-like foreheads while females have sloping ones. Great fighters, they twist wildly as they jump in the air. The meat is firm and light pink with a sweet taste. When cooked the flesh is white and flaky, making it Mahimahi (Dolphinfish) an ideal fish for any preparation.

Ethnic Dining

T

he food we eat in Hawai‘i is a fusion of the memories and recipes of the cuisine our ancestors brought to Hawai‘i from their homes in Portugal, Britain, Japan, China, the Philippines, Korea, the United States and everywhere else. In Kau Kau: Cuisine & Culture in the Hawaiian Islands (Watermark Publishing, BooksHawaii.net), author Arnold Hiura explores the history and heritage of favorite island foods, from taro to SPAM. Hiura has a section in his book titled “The Kau Kau 100: An Ethnic Potluck Primer” that describes or defines the food from various cultures that settled in the islands. Here is a short list that highlights the sort of food that warms the tummies of many islanders.

1) Andagi –

Round, cake-like Okinawan doughnut. A new version is the “Andadog,” a hot dog dipped in the andagi batter and fried. (Wayne Shinbara photo.)

2) Dim Sum –

Bite-sized Chinese dumplings stuffed with different meats and vegetables, then steamed, baked or fried. (Ron Ihori photo.)

3) Kalbi –

Korean barbecued short rib marinated in shoyu and sesame sauce. (From Kau Kau, Adriana Torres Chong photo.)

4) Lechon –

Filipino- or Puerto Rican-style whole roast pig, “lechon baboy” or “lechon asado.” (From Kau Kau, Adriana Torres Chong photo.)

5) Malasadas –

Portuguese sweet fried pastry rolled in sugar. Recent innovations include injecting a cream filling and dusting with flavored sugars. (Ron Ihori photo.)

What are those islands out there?

T

he islands seen off the coast of Maui — Moloka‘i, Läna‘i, Kaho‘olawe, and the tiny islet of Molokini (from top to bottom on facing page) — were all part of Maui Nui, the largest island of the chain before Hawai‘i island was formed. Overview of Kalaupapa Maui Nui consisted of six or National Historic Park seven volcanoes that coalesced on Moloka‘i into one island. Between 300,000 to 400,000 years ago, Maui Nui subsided into two islands, Moloka‘i and Läna‘i were one island and Kaho‘olawe, Molokini and Maui formed another. Within the last 300,000 years, the islands all separated. Scientists expect that Haleakalä and West Maui will become separate islands in the next 15,000 years. Molokini and Kaho‘olawe The islet of Molokini off Maui’s south shore is the tip of a submerged volcano. It is one of the top dive spots in the world and many of our tour advertisers offer snorkel cruises to the site. Molokini is also a state seabird sanctuary and landing on it is prohibited. Just beyond Molokini is Kaho‘olawe (photo below), a sacred island that was inhabited by Hawaiians for over a thousand years. It was where kahuna (priests) and navigators were trained and played a role in early Pacific migrations. Kaho‘olawe was a penal colony from 1826 to 1853, then, after Dec. 7, 1941, came to be used as a target island by U.S. armed forces until discontinued by President George Bush in 1990.

ploded ordnance was executed and the island was turned over to the state of Hawai‘i in 2003. It is not accessible to the general public and is used for Native Hawaiian cultural, spiritual, and subsistence purposes only. Läna‘i Once known as the “Pineapple Island,” Läna‘i is mostly owned by Larry Ellison, co-founder and chief executive of Oracle Corporation. Once a large pineapple plantation, the island features two luxurious resorts, the Four Seasons Resort Läna‘i and Lodge at Kö‘ele, as well as the historic Hotel Läna‘i in the island’s only city, Läna‘i City. Moloka‘i “The Friendly Isle” is steeped in Hawaiian culture and traditions. It is the birthplace of the hula and offers many natural wonders. It is the site of Kalaupapa National Historic Park, the community where Hansen’s disease (leprosy) victims were exiled from 1866 to 1969 and where Saint Damien worked with the patients from 1873 until his death from the disease in 1889. Moloka‘i is served by the Moloka‘i Ferry and Läna‘i by the Maui-Läna‘i Ferry, both departing from Lahaina Harbor. Hawai‘i Ocean Project offers day trips to both islands, 808 667-6165. Snorkel off of Läna‘i with Ultimate Whale Watch Maui, 808 667-5678. Flights from Maui are available through go!Mokulele, Island Air and Pacific Wings.

Meet Maui’s Turtles Text and photos by Cheryl King, Hawai‘i Wildlife Fund

H

awaiian hawksbill sea turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata), known as honu‘ea and ‘ea in Hawaiian, are listed as a critically endangered species. Hawaiian green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas), known as honu, are listed as threatened. The green turtle population is making a comeback but, despite their dual protection under the U.S. Endangered Species Act of 1978, it is still relatively rare to see a hawksbill while snorkeling or SCUBA diving the coral reefs in Hawai‘i. It is not well known that hawksbills even exist in Hawaiian waters, probably due to their similar appearance to greens in addition to their rarity. Since juveniles and male hawksbills don’t come ashore to nest, in-water observations are the only way to study their behavior and habitat preferences, specifically diet, as well as quantify threats such as injuries, harassment by snorkelers and interactions with fishing gear. Hawai‘i Wildlife Fund Hawksbill Recovery Project (HWF-HRP) researchers have been collecting hawksbill sighting information and tracking individuals for over 10 years by analyzing individual’s facial and flipper scute patterns. You can contribute to this database by sending your sightings (especially photographs) to MauiHawksbills@gmail.com. Most greens nest in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, but some greens and all hawksbills nest within the main Hawaiian Islands. Nesting season begins in May, with hatching events stretching into December. Nesting turtle tracks resemble 3-feet wide tire tracks that extend from the water to the dunes (photo). Please report any turtle tracks right away (see sidebar) so a HWF researcher can respond and the nest can be protected. After an incubation period ranging from 52 to 75 days, hatchlings use their egg tooth to tear their shell open and collectively wiggle out of the nest when the sand above them is cool, after sunset. They then visually orient towards the ocean, which is the brighter, open horizon while crawling away from tall, dark silhouettes which are the dunes

and trees. Unfortunately, hatchlings will crawl towards artificial lighting (streetlights, headlights, campfires, etc.) instead of safely to the ocean. Dune plants, crabs, birds and deep holes are other obstacles in the race to the ocean. This is when the “lost years” begin, as it is unknown where the hatchlings go and how they survive after leaving the beach. The reef is home to many predators to these 3-inch hatchlings, so they swim quickly offshore. They eventually reach currents that take them around the Pacific Ocean until their shells grow to the size of a basketball and they navigate back to Hawai‘i. The turtles grow up foraging on the reefs and the few (1 in 5,000) that survive until adulthood will return to the area where they were born to nest when they are about 20 to 40 years old. The primary goal of Hawai‘i Wildlife Fund’s Hawksbill Recovery Project is to monitor, research and protect nesting and foraging Hawaiian hawksbills to increase survivorship and aid in the recovery of this critically endangered species. Involving and educating the community about the plight of the Hawaiian hawksbill also benefits the Hawaiian green turtle and their habitats. Please join our conservation efforts at www.WildHawaii.org.
