Maui Weekend and Whale Watch Options

Aloha friends! Happy New Year!!! I hope your 2023 is off to a great start and delivers for you everything you want.  We deserve that after the past few years! This weekend does not offer much in the way of events on Maui though Smash Mouth is bound to deliver a great show on Friday at the MACC. I figured with that being the case, I would share with you some options for Whale Watches on Maui. The whales visiting our waters is one of the best parts of Maui winters so be sure to leave space for that on your calendars.

Smash Mouth at the MACC

Smash Mouth is performing their only show in Hawaii on Maui at the MACC’s Castle Theater this Friday. New front man, Zach Goode, has refreshed the sound and Smash Mouth is ready to rock in 2023. This is sure to be a great show as they are bringing the love specially to Maui.
