Luggage and bags:
I took my small rolling bag and a beach bag. If you plan to bring home stuff for your friends and family, take an extra bag with you......we had a time getting everything home.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Pack light, you can always wash. Have 2 bathing suits and a cover up. Be sure to have a beach towel and sunscreen with you. I ALSO liked using the Maui Babe Tan Accelerator. (another tip from LanikaiBabe:) Just apply it over your sunscreen and really does work:) Casual is really in here.....there is not too much dressing up, but if you like fine dining, bring the appropriate wear as there are some nice places to dine:). A jacket or sweatshirt would have been nice for cool evenings. (and yes, with the tradewinds, it can be a little on the cool side! I forgot mine and will never make that mistake again) We also brought our own snorkle gear.....it wasn't expensive to rent it there, but we already owned our own stuff!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring shampoo! The Pacific is SALTY and I had to wash my hair 3 times to get all the salt out!!! Bring soap powder, dryer sheets and quarters with you in a lock top bag if you plan to wash! It's a lot cheaper than buying it at the hotel laundromat, and this way you have everything with you. Another thing that we have just from our camping excursions that I brought along is one of those fold up hampers that you can get from Walmart or Kmart. I love this thing! It can be folded up and kept in your suitcase. When you get to your hotel, just open it up and VOLIA(!), you have a hamper! They even have one that has 3 sections that you can sort your stuff, but we have the one that has one compartment. I have a thing about taking my stuff home clean. I just think that it simplifies the unpacking process and also for me, the blues of actually coming back home:(
Photo Equipment: 35mm camera and video camera. Underwater camers if you want to take pictures in the ocean. Take plenty of film and cassettes to capture moments! I had my pictures developed at Long's Drugs in the Ala Moana Mall for $6.99 and I got double prints! That was cheaper than here in Maryland!!! I feel getting them developed there is a good thing so if something doesn't come out, you may have the chance to get another picture of it.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Beach towel, beach bag, sunscreen for sure.
Luggage and bags:

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Sunblock, sunblock, and more sunblock.
Miscellaneous: Gallon Zip-Lock bags. You'll need them to pack your wet swimsuits in when traveling between islands or traveling home.
