Stayed in Ma’alaea near the harbor. It was fun to watch the boats come and go. Went down to the harbor to take a chartered snorkel trip. Seemed nice. Windiest harbor in the US.

After a pleasant trip with Four Winds II, we ventured back to our vehicle. While walking on the dock of this lovely harbor, I slipped and feel on my arm and broke it. I am writing this review to warn others of the slippery spots...More
