Maui Hawaii

We hope you enjoy this compilation of photos taken on the island of Maui in 1979, 1982, and 1986. Included are photos of the West Maui Mountains, a sugar cane burn, the Iao Valley and Needle, Kapalua, North Maui, Lahaina, the Pioneer Inn, the Banyan Tree, the Carthaginian, the Jodo Mission, Kaanapali, Hana and O’heo Gulch (AKA the 7 Sacred Pools), Haleakala, and rainbows and sunsets. Also included were a few shots from a sailing trip to Lanai. Molokai can also be seen in the distance in some shots.

Pay close attention to the Iao Valley and the profile of John F. Kennedy in a rock formation. It’s a must see in the Iao Valley.

Many of the pineapple fields photographed north of Kapalua, and in Lanai, are gone due to development.

The pictures of Haleakala were taken by John’s mother using an antique box camera.

  1. Wow nice pictures, Still about the same except the sugar cane fields is gone, the pineapple fields are gone, the Carthaginian (Iforgot all about it) is gone. Now the beaches are more populated and too many timeshares. 01/09/2019.

  2. i think you should also mention that pictures of the iao needle are awesome because after the earthquake you cant drive around the needle anymore due to the fact that some of the road fell into the ocean! The same goes for the hana highway

  3. I LOVE Maui! Lahaina is my favorite part. Front street is so much fun and there is so much to do there and I love all of the little shops in there. And they have activities galore. Kanapali is a little too upity for me and the shops there are a little overpriced in my opinion.

  4. Your video is just sooooo Maui! Music goes so well with photos. You get the feel of the peace and tranquility you get from just being on the island. I was there Sept. 2008 and had the most wonderful streess-free days of my entire life. Do people who live there know how blessed they are? I hope so 🙂

  5. the next time that you go there, try to go there between november and february. That's when alot of them are there and you can go an a whale watch on one of the boats. it's really neat to watch them playing and sometimes they will come up to the boat.

  6. I was born and raised on Maui. I remember all of these places that you showed. I lived in the little town of Paia back in the 60's and 70's. Unfortunately we moved to Alaska in '71. then we moved to Arizona in '78 but we spent the summers in Lahaina, Hawaii. I try to go back to Hawaii as much as I can. There is also the prison in Lahaina and Kamehmeha's summer palace in Lahaina as well. There is also the healing rock. If you went during the winter months did you get to see any whales?
