3 Ways to Make the Most of Your Thanksgiving on Maui 

Enjoy a Day on the Water 

One of the best things to do during your Thanksgiving vacation on Maui is to enjoy the outdoors, especially the water! The weather usually cools down a littlewhich makes a boat ride quite enjoyable. Rent a kayak or book a catamaran for the day and enjoy the salty breeze of the Pacific Ocean. Another reason to get out on the water is to spot some whales! Indeed, humpback whales return to Maui around mid-November each year, so remember to bring your binoculars!
