    Aw man, I wish I found this thread a little earlier just so I could've wished Susan good luck!
    I think we're going back to Maui for our HM, but we've been having trouble with arrangements on Kauai, so Maui's a possibility for the whole shin-dig. The best thing we did on Maui was taking a day trip to Lana'i for snorkeling. (My fh got all into underwater photography, so snorkeling was big on that trip.) It was better than an excursion because we set our own pace, and because there's a beach and all. You can walk to the beach from the ferry docks. I didn't see any other part of Lana'i, but I didn't have to. The snorkeling was fantastic, and less crowded than the excursions to Molokini. Lana'i was just so intimate- I would definitely suggest it for anyone on their honeymoon.

    Also about Molokini- there was a charter boat that sank there in 2006, and did some major damage to the crater. I wonder if that's hurt the wildlife and how it's changed the regulations for excursion tours...?

    ...gosh, I wish I was there right now!!

        I'm so glad to hear this! We're going to Lanai and Molokai for our honeymoon, and we're so excited about both islands. The best part is that we won't be running into our guests all over the place. I'm looking forward to spending the week before the wedding with them on Maui, and I'd rather not be running into a bunch of people we know constantly while we're on our honeymoon!

          sherry- you'll be ready for that time. i loved having everyone there, but, man, was i happy to not be asked "where are we meeting for dinner", "what are you doing this afternoon", etc.

            sherry that sounds awesome!! It's the perfect way to recoup after Maui (ha!). I looked for some of the underwater pics we took there but I think they're on my other computer. I'll post a few if I find them! (We got an underwater case for our digital camera. Wasn't exactly cheap, but well worth it if you do a lot of snorkeling!) I hope you'll post some of the details of the Lana'i/Molokai honeymoon

              Ebbica, I've posted some of our Lana'i/Molokai planning details in the Lana'i/Molokai section of the forum. I'll be sure to include Lana'i and Molokai in my post-wedding review too! Now that the family members (namely my Mother) are really into the heart of the pre-wedding crazies, I'm SOOOO looking forward to the solitude of Lana'i and Molokai on our honeymoon. I think we definitely made the right choice for us.

                Hey Fellow Hawaii Brides,

                I live in Hawaii and have lived on Maui, Oahu and Big Island. Getting married next year at Kahua Ranch on the Big Island. I have the inside scoop on a lot of details. If you have any questions about locations, where to stay etc; etc; I might be able to help. Just let me know.
                Aloha!
