Guidebook Reviews

Maui Revealed Guidebook:

Three's Bar & Grill (caterer):
'Ono' (standout) - the food is great.

Fodor's Guidebook:

There's no better place to see the sun set on the Pacific than from one of Maui's many boat tours.

Moon Guidebook:

Few Maui activities are more iconic than a sunset sail off the West Maui coastline. The feeling of the trade winds in your hair as you glide along the ocean is a sensation of freedom you can’t experience on land. Watch as the setting sun paints the sky every shade of orange and pink, while on most days you can also make out a rainbow hovering over the lush valleys. Add in some tunes, a mai tai, and some appetizers, and there’s a good chance you’ll walk off the boat with a smile on your face and the photo for next year’s Christmas card.

Three’s Bar & Grill (caterer): Local favorite with unique items that are tasty.
