          Pretty much the other side of the island. About 2 hours if I recall. You need to rent a car. Talk to the hotel concierge, that is what they are there for.

          Can someone tell me about the sunrise canoe trip at the Fairmont Orchid? We stayed at the Fairmont in Maui last summer and there was a canoe experience that was included but it was very limited - only a few trips in the morning.

          It was amazing. You go out at dawn and watch the sunrise over the mountains from a canoe in the ocean. It was serene and relaxing. I highly recommend it!
