My husband and I leave for Maui (first time to Hawaii) in a couple days and I'm a little concerned about how rough the ocean has been. I spoke with Teralani yesterday because we have a snorkel trip booked next week and they said it has been horrible and they had to cancel all trips between Saturday and Tuesday and told me about a bunch of rescues that have happened, but they are hoping it will be better by next week. Snorkel Store daily reports have been at a 4-5 for a week. I have friends there right now at Kaanapali beach who said it is so bad they can't really go in the ocean at all without getting knocked over and have spent the whole week at the pool. I'm a little confused because I didn't think this was normal?
We are trying to figure out what people do all week if it's too rough to go in the ocean? We are staying in the area north of black rock and already have a day planned for Haleakala/upcountry and another day for possibly Road to Hana. Besides our snorkel excursion, we were wanting to be able to shore snorkel in the morning and lounge at the beach. We like to eat (who doesn't?) but don't drink and sitting at a crowded pool all day for multiple days doesn't sound real appealing. Also, we are going to be at the cheap end of the spectrum for how much people are willing to fork out for things on Maui, so don't suggest a bunch of $150+ pp activities please.
