WIT Agent Nancy on Maui

women's day (1)

Last month, WIT Agent Nancy Fowler returned from a trip to Maui with her daughter, Sam. Nancy is one of the experts in the office on all things Hawaii.

She always has some recommendations at her fingertips, especially for O’ahu, Maui, and Kaua’i.

Nancy’s Insider Tips for a Great Vacation on Maui

Tokyo Tei tempura

Tokyo Tei Restaurant in Wailuku. Open since 1935, Tokyo Tei offers delicious, authentic, and reasonably priced awesome Japanese food. This is a no-frills, nicely hidden, family-owned and -operated restaurant. As it’s minutes from Maui airport, it’s a great place for lunch or dinner before an overnight flight home (or anytime really!).

Beach Buddy Freya

Maui Humane Society Beach Buddy Volunteer Program. Volunteer to play with a pup in the sun every Wednesday and Friday. Due to the popularity of this program, it books out months in advance! Get your spot before your flight.

PacWhaleFoundation snorkel Lanai

Pacific Whale Foundation Cruises. Frolic with the whales and dolphins in their natural habitant. Enjoy a sunset dinner or cocktail cruise, or snorkel out to Molokini, Lana’i and Honolua Bay. As only 2 boat companies have permission to land on Lana’i, and this isn’t one of them, the cruise anchors off the Marina and guests swim close to the harbor.

230p-430p / leisurely return via Paia and Makawao. with stops for tea and shopping in each town

445p / in the parking lot waiting for 5pm to come so we could have dinner @ Tokyo Tei

600p / drove the “back” road to Alamo to return our car (a way more “colorful” approach to the airport than via town!)

615p / at the airport, in time for 8:45pm departure flight.
