Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea ~ December 4, 2020

Update from Maui ~ your daily dose of "vitamin sea"

Happy Aloha Friday! If you're able, get out and support some local businesses this weekend. More restaurants are starting to open, local craft fairs are being held (while adhering to strict social distancing guidelines), and a few other small businesses are opening for the holidays. 

If you're looking for a tree, the Rotary Club of Kahului is selling trees and they are available (for now) at Lowe's and Home Depot. 

It has been a challenging year, and here's to a joyous holiday season and a new year beginning!
 
Can you see it? Happy Aloha Friday!!
 
The beaches aren't so empty anymore (look at the sand), but occasionally you get lucky enough to enjoy the sunset without a crowd!

Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea - December 2, 2020

Update from Maui ~ your daily dose of "vitamin sea"

This really is the most wonderful time of the year. The weather is cooler, so adventures aren't quite so sweaty, the whales are jumping and spouting wherever you look and the holiday decorations are being put up everywhere!

From Launiupoko, to Front Street and all the way up to Kapalua, there isn't a bad place to be! 
 
 
Take a walk down Front Street in Lahaina with us and see what's new.
There are some surprises.

Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea ~ November 30, 2020

Update from Maui ~ your daily dose of "vitamin sea"

We hope everyone (at least all of our American friends) had a fantastic Thanksgiving and were able to enjoy time with a small number of family and friends! We (very gladly) ate too much great food and enjoyed the beautiful weather.

Maui continues to welcome COVID negative visitors back to the island, and so far it seems to be going fairly smoothly. Unfortunately, due to the rise in COVID cases, both Kauai and the Big Island have opted out of the safe travel program and have gone back to the mandatory 14-day quarantine. As of now, Mayor Victorino is saying Maui will continue with the safe travel program, so if you're here, wash your hands, wear your masks and stay safe, and if you're coming, please be respectful of the rules and regulations. We want to continue to extend our Aloha to all the visitors!
 
 
If you're in the snow or the rain, we hope you can live vicariously through this idyllic Kaanapali Beach video!

Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea ~ November 23, 2020

Update from Maui ~ your daily dose of "vitamin sea"

We hope you had a great weekend! We are thankful for the slightly cooler weather and the week of good food coming up!

We are thankful that our beautiful island is slowly coming back to life and businesses are continuing to reopen and to stay open.

We are thankful that those that are coming are being safe and respectful of our island and those that live here.

As Thanksgiving approaches, let us know how what you're thankful for, we'd love to hear from you!

Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea ~ November 20, 2020

Update from Maui ~ your daily dose of "vitamin sea"

Happy Aloha Friday! 

For those of you traveling here for Thanksgiving (or beyond), take note of the new travel restrictions. Your negative COVID test (from a trusted partner) MUST be in hand before boarding the plane. If not, then there will be a mandatory 14-day quarantine upon arrival. Click here to read more.  

Thanksgiving will look very different this year for those in need. The Maui Food Bank is working hard to ensure that no family goes without a Thanksgiving meal. A small donation of $25 will give a family of four a full holiday meal pack. Click here for more information. Let's do all we can to support our community! 

Have a great weekend!

Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea ~ November 18, 2020

Update from Maui ~ your daily dose of "vitamin sea"

Today we are thankful for laughter (whether it's loud laughing or low laughing...) and turtles! 

Snorkeling is one of our favorite activities and there are so many great spots. Check out the video below from our team member, Angie Liu.
 
 
We missed #turtletuesday, but we sure love "turtlewednesday!

Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea - November 13, 2020

Update from Maui ~ your daily dose of "vitamin sea"

Happy Aloha Friday! Another week down and another week closer to the holidays. Is everyone ready?!?

Not much to report this week; visitors continue to safely arrive and businesses continue to open. There has been a small increase in COVID cases, but I suppose that should be expected after Halloween. But, all in all, things are pretty alright here, the temperatures are perfect and the island is greening up for Christmas with all the rain!

We hope you have a great weekend!

It is with gratitude that we say thank you to all who have served in war and in peace - to those still living, and to those who lost their lives in service for our freedoms.

Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea ~ November 9, 2020

Update from Maui ~ your daily dose of "vitamin sea"

From sunrise to sunset, we're pretty lucky to live in such a special place. 

I have a friend that, beginning on November 1, posts something she is grateful for each day until Thanksgiving. What a good practice that is, and how much differently would we look at our world and the world around us if every one of us did the same?

Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea ~ November 4, 2020

Update from Maui ~ your daily dose of "vitamin sea"

Getting outside (particularly right now) is good for clearing the head. The walk along Airport Beach was spectacular this morning and there wasn't a bad view whichever way we looked. 

We can tell the visitors are back, but appreciate the fact that almost all of them were wearing masks. I also appreciate the light-hearted memes about the election I have seen on Facebook today, it is nice to laugh in such a divisive time.
