WHY STAY AT THE WHALER?
Kaanapali Beach is the best beach in Maui and the best stretch of Kaanapali Beach happens to be directly in front of the Whaler. It's big, it's not crowded, the sand has no lava rock, and it's a short walk to Black Rock, one of the best snorkeling spots on the island. The Whaler property is right next door to the fun shops and restaurants of Whalers Village. And we're just 3 miles from Lahaina, an old whaling village full of shops, art galleries, and restaurants.

We made our first trip to Maui in 1986. We discovered the Whaler on our third trip in 1988, and have stayed only at the Whaler since. Renting various units in both towers for eight years let us learn first hand where we wanted our own condo to be ... on the shady courtyard side of Tower II. It lets you enjoy the lush tropical plants, koi pond, bridge and waterfall of the courtyard, plus a birdseye view of the pool, beach and ocean... all in cool shady comfort. We are now retired and enjoy our trips from Texas to Maui twice a year.
Like most people visiting Maui, we always spend some of our vacation exploring the island. However, on those days we're not exploring, we are very content to stay put. With so much available right here at the Whaler and Kaanapali Beach, we can go days without getting our car out. Plus, the Whaler is a very safe, family oriented environment.
Wave to friends/family at the pool from our lanai.
Take a walk down the beach sidewalk all the way to the Hyatt and back (2 miles round trip).
Use top of the line equipment in the Fitness Center . Get a manicure, pedicure, massage, new hair style. Walk next door for great shopping and restaurants.
Grill burgers and eat on picnic tables or on your lanai.
Play golf at the course across the street.
See whales from your lanai late December - early April.
See rainbows just about every day!
NOT RENTING A CAR? Taxis for trips into Lahaina are plentiful, and there are lots of tour bus options for island sightseeing. Public bus options shown below:
Kaanapali Trolley (looks like a San Francisco cable car)makes frequent stops at Whaler's Village next door. It will take you to resorts up and down Kaanapali Beach and to The Fairway Shops on the backside of the golf course across the street @ no charge.
Maui's public transportation buses service the whole island and make frequent stops at Whaler's Village. Catch the one into Lahaina to buy groceries, explore Front Street, go to a movie, or enjoy many restaurants.
Or, catch the one into Kahului and go to Kaahumanu Shopping Mall (anchor stores are Sears and Macy's), or to Maui Mall, an outdoor strip mall with Maui's only stadium seating movie theatre.
Bus Fare per person is $2 one way, or $4 all day pass.
