Thx for the tips I'm going to Hawaii with my dad and sister in about three months and I can't wait I've wanted to go for four years🌴
So true I went to twin falls and someone broke into another's car because they left purse in car.
man you butchered Haleakala, its pronounced just like it reads. Ha-le-aka-la, & I cringed @ Kaanapali. Another great tip would be – Be respectful of locals, don't bring your entitled pretentious little attitude to the island, I don't give a shit how much money you spent to come here or how much your hotel cost – leave the tude on the mainland.
At first my thinking was "great another haole (a word that means any foreigner not just a white person) butchering my mother language and giving tips." BUT after listening to the whole video, I must say kudos to you sir. Lots of good tips. Its baffling how many people come here thinking its all good times and sunshine and they get their plans rained on. The part I really appreciate is the ending. #ProtectTheLand because this may be some peoples vacation but this is my paradise and home. I have no where else if I lose this island. Mahalo.
GLAD YOU CAN READ A BROCHURE ABOUT OUR ISLAND. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT MAUI THEN ASK A LOCAL! NO WATCH OR LISTEN TO A VISITOR, LISTEN TO A LOCAL THEY WILL KNOW THE INS AND OUTS. MOST IMPORTANT RULE OF THUMB IS……. NO PISS OFF THE LOCALS IT COULD BE HAZARDOUS. JUST A LITTLE F.Y.I.
I don't know for your hawiaan pronunciation but i am french and i can say that your enghish pronunciation is awesome , really good because i understand everythings you say, thank you , you make a great job and you seems to be a verry kind person 👍💕
how is the weather in December at Kihei
I am a resident of Maui-your tips are pretty good and accurate, but you pronounce all the Hawaian names wrong, like Kaanapali and Haleakala.
You can surely speak English, but, if you're going to pronounce Hawaiian words it would be good to learn the proper pronunciation. Your not doing that destroys your credibility.
thank u for the tips
do you suggest to rent a car
i have MOSQUITTO BITES ON MY FEET I'M NOT ON MAUI!!!!
The one thing I would add..Even though we did rent a car, I am into photography. We took a tour van around Hana. Why? The tour people know where all the turn outs are. They Live, and Drive that highway probably every day. They can show you where some of the best views are. It is a rewarding feeling to not have to watch traffic,while looking for places to turn off, possibly missing something significant. The downside is, You are on their schedule. If they stop for 15 min, maybe you would like 30? well that's the way it is brudda.To sum it up. About all I had to worry about was camera equipment, and getting the scenery on memory stick. I know I would have missed it if I was driving, watching the road. 617 hairpin curves and 59 unforgiving one-lane bridges, not to mention an incredible number of blind spots along the way. And, since the speed limit is 25 mph or less the entire way, that puts the drive time, (with few to no stops), averaging about 2.5 hours — and that’s without encountering any traffic or other diversions. Hang loose
I don't care how you pronounce things, your videos are informative and fun. I'll keep watching.
Another tip: Locals don't lock their cars because broken windows are expensive to replace. Better to leave your car unlocked with nothing in it. Thieves see a locked car and bust the window to search since they know you must be a tourist and have valuables inside.I lived in Maui for 12 years.
What is the weather like in Maui the first week in March?
Cuz I live Maui if u go to Hana and u see a Hawaiian let the fukin Hawaiian go and a good place to go is the pier in Hana but their are barracudas
Oe i noho ai ma iki kahakai,ʻo ia?
Haha just realised this but I was probably at the Andaz Hotel whilst you were filming
So excited about my upcoming trip! I found this very helpful. Thank you.

Don't touch coral I never new that and I was born in Maui until we visited the second time . Ha
I won't book the afternoon snorkeling tour I planned, thanks for the suggestions!
I'm considering next September/Oct how is the weather at that time? Also I enjoyed your video your very chipper and ready to answer questions the best of your knowledge. Ive watched enough Dogthebounty hunter to be warned about the drug and theft problems there..so im curious how much rental company will charge me for a low life busting the window..
If you are going to watch the sunrise on Haleakala, make sure you register and pay for your spot. (yes, they get so many people that they had to do this)It's not expensive but you have to book in advance. I tried to book a month before our last trip, and there was no openings until two months after we left!I'll make sure to book early next time.
Just got back from Maui and ALL of what he said is true. Hana can be a hassle to get to and from BUT it is worth it so start that trek early..
I like your videos and topher!!!
Will be back packing with my dog. Is the island dog friendly?
Thank you for the tips I kind of figured some of them having visited Hawaii before
I can't wait to visit Honolulu from Scotland next year
Good tips! Learn the right pronunciations. It really takes away from your video. U have 85000 views and I only have a few thousand, so what do I know. #Mauinormalliving.
Is there a hotel or bed n breakfast that you would recommend to stay? We're going in March and it's stressful planning
to whom been to hawaii, which island is your favorite and how come? which is best for sight seeing and hiking?
I was considering visiting Maui, but from the comments I'm reading, the locals do not sound welcoming at all. In fact, you sound downright pompous and rude.
Big Mountain is a dormant volcano. Pronounce it "holly-ah-kala. Now say it fast. You are standing at or near "ka-ah-na-Polly" or most say "Kahna-Polly". Trying to be helpful.
Pro tip: Maui is not like Yucatan Mexico! Great vid
Hi Chris, wanted to say this – THANK YOU!I had see most of your Maui videos before me and my husband visited Maui in the week of March 3. Your advice was very helpful from food (Cheap eats!), to clothing, to where and when to visit. I think our experience in Maui was made even better because of your inputs. And yes, you weren’t kidding when you spoke about the single lane roads! Hope to see your videos about Japan when we visit next year! Keep up the awesome work. We appreciate it. (And yes, you are terribly cute!)
Please learn to make the music quieter, so that we can hear your voice!
nicely done video with worthwhile tips. Too bad there are so many thieves in Maui. They don't deserve our business.
I know everything bitch I live in maui
I live in Hana and it only takes 1 hour to drive there
But you right if you're not native
Actually there are some really good tips here. I would emphasize a few things, among those being that Maui IS NOT Disneyland. It can be dangerous and like you MEANT to say in the video, people overestimate their abilities both snorkeling and hiking. When hiking in or near streams, people need to be aware of flash flooding which is very common. It is also common for people to get swept out to sea by rogue waves when standing on lava rocks near the shore. Don't stand on coral. Don't touch the turtles or I'll personally drown you. Finally, respect the land and police your trash, you filthy mainlanders.
…maybe learn how to pronounce the places of which you speak; Bra….
I like your guides, however you should please try to pronounce Hawaiian words a little more correctly. You are way off on some of them… Haleakala, Kaanapali etc.
What's the best month to visit there ???
That hand dude, chill
how could stealing cars on an island be a good idea?
I’m not going but it’s my dream trip
Good tips. BTW-the main volcano is Haleakala, not Halekala or Halekawa (couldn't understand what was said).
Should I bring my mother?
I’m born and raised on Maui. Great video, very informative. The respectful tips at the end were the cherry on top. AND LET ME ADD IF ITS WHALE SEASON DO NOT SLOW DOWN KNOW THE ROAD JUST PULL OVER.
Don't take any rocks unless you buy them, they're sacred.
I lived in Maui for awhile and these are pretty good tips. 👍🏼
Watch out for traps
Love Maui and everything about it. My first trip there we drove to Hana. Didn't think anything about the rain, I had read up on Maui and knew there would be rain in that area. Beautiful drive, unforgettable day. Next morning we read the paper and the road had flooded virtually behind us. A couple on their honeymoon had spent the night in a tree. So, when he says be prepared for changing weather——be prepared for changing weather.
Dude, a little less on the hand gestures please….
What a set up ! We had a cheap car and they're looking like a pile of junk and if they want it they will take it…Put your wallet in your front pocket carry less cash cards are better be careful …Like every place there's always thieves…Before it was alright but now it's not the same too much foreign too much people looking to steal from you not like before I'm 67 it's changed so drastically..
Anyone who has experienced Hawaii over the course of the past few decades and who cares about the very things that make these islands special will tell you the islands are dying from an onslaught of monster homes, shopping malls, concrete and golf courses. Photographer and conservationist Robert Wenkam sounded the alarm in 1970 with the release of his book Maui the Last Hawaiian Place, in which he postulated Maui would only be able to handle a maximum of 1 million tourists a year – and here we are in 2015 with more than 4 million people visiting Maui every year. Clearly, Big Money is destroying these islands and grass root attempts to slow the rate of economic growth, while commendable, have proved very ineffective overall. I spent one month on Oahu in 2013, after an absence of 15 years. It was so sad to see what they have done to it. A truly massive Disney resort at Barber's Point, the on-going, never-ending battle over development of the Turtle Bay lands, the continuing spread of housing developments up the slopes, and the demise of the sugar and pineapple plantations and associated loss of plantation culture, which had become such an integral part of the local culture. In the next few decades the continued influx of mainlanders from the other 49 states not to mention rich Asians from Korea, India and China will further erode the local culture of the islands until nothing is really left of it. And every year brings the intrusion of new exotic species that are wreaking havoc on the native flora and fauna on all the islands. Meanwhile the tiny state budget for eradicating or controlling these introduced animals and plants is, as always, totally not up to the task. And now, the location of every previously remote beach, reef and valley, every out of the way little local restaurant, and every hiking trail, is broadcasted on the internet In 1973 I swam at the Seven Sacred Falls near Hana on Maui. Me, and the other three tourists who happened to be there. The place is now pretty much overrun with people. In 1981 I camped at the mouth of Waipio Valley on the Big Island and spent the following day hiking up the valley, where I passed maybe 4 people along the trail. Try doing that today and see how many people you come across. Newcomers do not know how much has already been lost. But this is nothing compared to what will come. Such a tragedy, such a damn shame. Goodbye to you, blue Hawaii.
Awesome Video ✨ Thank you sooo much ✨❤️🙌 I’m going in September and I really need tips 😊 This Video helps 🙏
Hoooo baddah what craydah was dat lol.
Do you HAVE to rent a car? I'm thinking of going solo to Maui. 26 year old guy here
Tourism is killing maui.
Don't Plan Too Much on One Day!! this is the best I have heard. A lot of people saying the same thing. great video
Who else lives in Maui cuz I do:)
I learned the hard way about wading into the water barefoot. There are plenty of beach rocks and stubbing your toe is no fun. Now I wear dive boots anytime I go into the water. High top canvas shoes are good too, but way more expensive.
If you waved your right a hand around a bit more, we could all get dizzy.
Excellent video…..straight to the point. Thanks..very informative.
Just mute your speakers and turn on captions if you don't like his pronunciation or the music
GOING TO BE THERE VERY SOON…..CANT WAIT TO LAND….BOARDING THE HAWAIIAN AIRLINES
So many people drown in Hawaii. You have to know before you go. When in doubt, don't go out.A lot of people get caught up in the beauty and leave their common sense at home. A man was standing on rocks next to huge crashing waves. He was swept away right in front of his wife and newborn. It isn't a water park or Disneyland. Be smart
FYI When picking sunscreen that is reef friendly when picking sunscreen
I normally don’t burn from the sun. Only on my shoulders, for head , and some parts of my face. But very rarely. I want to live in Hawaii when I’m older.
Thanks for the video! 🙂
Thank you for posting. 🙂
As a local I appreciate you mentioning to drivers to pull over to allow the locals through on the way to and from Hana. Especially when ones sightseeing holds up traffic.
Maui has the best beach nude beach little beach and great hikes commando line👀👅👀
Make sure you bring your camera to a little beach so you can take pictures of beautiful naked girls they love to be photographed😂😂
First thing first if you are poor or Chinese just don’t do to Hawaii since it make the environment looks poor.
hi yellow productions its 11pm and im watching ur videos. please keep making videos on hawaii, going there next week, staying in the westin…. BTW u should do a vido in waikiki.….….pls reply i will be happy…
Going to Maui for work in May… will stay in Wailea area and other half of my stay in Ka'anapali area… 🙂
Going on honeymoon in 2 weeks. Top 3 tips for this time of year?
One of my nightmares is being the dude in the background bending over on camera for minutes at a time. Then clenching. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Don't touch the coral and don't touch the turtles.
The guy in the back is stealing your show.
you sound weird
This guy sounds like my dad haha
Can you get weed easy ?
Honestly.. Tourists are fucking clueless morons. In recent years they have taken their stupidity to all time highs. Why crowd into other people while at the beach? Why can't you keep your children from screaming like they are being raped or murdered while doing almost anything? Taking selfies and all their photos for their social media accounts, while they impede and encroach upon others without a care in the world. Don't stand on the coral and stay away from the turtles.
The biggest thing to know.. Pull your head out of your ass and quit being the person you always are. A stupid idiot.
Thanks for your great videos!Do you have any videos on the road to Hana ?
I just love your attitude, very informative as always. You bring me so much good energy and motivation to my life. I travel 300+ days a year and I always have to watch your videos before I'm heading to a new destination.
I'm really glad you mentioned the be safe point. I slipped on a rock there and scraped the back of my head really bad. Was having a fever due to infection during the whole trip and couldn't get into the water again, and had a mild concussion as well. Hawaii was so beautiful and I only got in the water on the first day and that was it… The hospital bills were more than what I spent on the trip…
try a reusable water bottle before giving out advice.
Great tips 👍
Best tips I’ve heard, people very rarely think that Hawaii can be cold, and freeze when they go up to Haleakala. As someone who grew up on Haleakala, I can attest to this: it gets cold! Also thanks for talking about petty crime: the nicer your rental car, the more likely you are to be robbed. Just get a regular car, and pay attention to the locals in the area, they know which areas are more tourist oriented (and that's where you get robbed). There’s no one to show off to in Maui, anyway. That being said, enjoy our island!
Very informative video.. Thank you
