Wow! That seems like a very ambitious program for one day! What are you doing on Day 1 (or am I misunderstanding and this is actually Day 1 in Maui, but Day 2 of the cruise)?
I seem to remember that the luau (which was in Lahaina) ended about 8:30 or so and we had no time to waste getting back, so I'm pretty sure the last shuttle was at 9pm
We tendered in Lahaina last time and drove the RT Hana. Loved it. So I know the roads/driving south of Lahaina. This time like to go to the north (on day 2).
The Molokini diving/snorkeling is on our day 2 of Maui, because it starts early. We'll be getting back to the ship earlier on day 1, so we should have no problem. Day 1 we're going to Mt. Haleakala, and then either a beach, or maybe will do Ioa Needle too (and not go there on day 2)
I understand that if you miss the shuttle there are taxis for a reasonable cost, do you know if this is correct? My intent is to call Thrifty to be on the safe side but thought it would hurt to ask too.
I heard it's walkable, as people who returned cars late can walk. But I'd like to know how long the walk is. On day 2 in Maui, we'll like to start driving at 5:50am (to get to boat ramp by 6:30am) So if it's a 10min. walk that how we'll need to plan for it.
