The Legend says... that the demi-god Maui pulled the Hawaiian Islands out of the sea, while he was fishing. He snared the sun so the islands would receive more daylight hours, to be used for more fishing.

Myth and history form a magic blend on this island. The great King Kamehameha ruled the Islands from Lahaina, the first Capital, later known as  the Whaling Capital of the Pacific.

Maui was formed by two volcanoes, creating  lush valleys, filled with waterfalls and tropical growth.
