The Royal Lahaina Luau

Check out the local crafts being offered as you enter.  We've found many items that we've keep through the years, that are not available elsewhere. Enjoy your stay on Maui!

Lahaina is a great place to get the feel of old Hawaii, and a glimpse back into time when whaling ships filled the bay.  Although the whaling days are over, the views of these amazing creatures put it all in perspective. Put Bubba Gumps on your list of things to do when you next visit Maui.  You'll be glad you did.
