    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: When going to Maui bring a pair of old sneakers to wear when you explore the Road to Hana area.

    Photo Equipment: Got some great snorkeling shots with those $10-15 underwater cameras - buy them on the mainland and save money.
    REMEMBER to put all exposed film in your carry on luggage or it will get ruined by the stronger x-ray machines used for checked-in baggage.

    Miscellaneous: Call 1-888-422-8220 and get the IQ discount card - it was the best investment we made for the trip. Was good on all the islands and the discounts were great. The card paid for itself many times over!

    Packing List

    by bruingirl Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Anything will do.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Flip flops are key!!! Although it does rain a bit, the weather is nice enough that it doesn't require a jacket. Bring a pair of long sleeves and pants though because it does get somewhat chilly in the winter months (approx.65 degrees).

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Molokai doesn't have all the amenities that you might be used to having at home. Bring them if you think it's somewhat of an obscure item. Bring bug repellent!!

    Photo Equipment: There are no dark rooms on the island. All the film gets developed on the bigger islands! There are no real photo shops. More likely than not, the chances of finding that 'exact' battery will be slim to none. There are disposable cameras for sale though! :)

    Luggage and bags: Carry on, pull suitcase - easy to travel with and no waiting at baggage claim

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: When visiting Haleakala on Maui, it is very cold at the summit, bring multiple layers of clothing (and jacket/blankets) especially for sunset.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Insect repellant for a few of the beach areas.

    Miscellaneous: Binoculars are a good idea to see the views from Haleakala volcano. Also fill up on gas, food and water as there are no places to stop once starting the drive to Haleakala volcano and few places on the way to Hana.

    Luggage and bags: Pack an extra bag to take home souveniers because everyone will ask you to bring them back something.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Pack hiking shoes and some Teva like water shoes -- actually something with a closed to and thick sole tha you can get wet. Some beaches you have to walk across rocks to get to, so teva like sandals with a good grip on the bottom (I personally love my Merrell's with sticky grip on the bottom that serve as a water shoe and a hiking shoe).

    Also, it is hot there. I thought it would be cool in Dec/Jan. It was warm 80 degrees Farenheit during the day or warmer. No cooler than 70 at night.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Lots of waterproof sunscreen and aloe if you are not good at reapplying!

    Photo Equipment: Lots of film. Easy to purchase film. However, it is difficult to find digital tape if you have a digital video camcorder.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: We bought a beach mat for 2.00 and a cooler at Walmart once we got there.

    Luggage and bags: Everything locking.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: loose cotton. Bring a hat. Try to buy as little as possible. It's all $$$$$$$$$!
    Be prepared to weather some really pleasant and welcome rain. You won't mind it!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sun Block 50. A few minutes in the sun and you're red!
    The UV's are way stronger there.

    Photo Equipment: Bring things you wouldn't mind losing.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: none. Unless you want to go camping. Then bring a fly swatter, and lots of OFF! to repel the biggest bugs you've ever seen! (3 inch roaches!!)If you go camping out near trees (and I wouldn't if I were you) watch out for mongooses - they can be really mean!

    Miscellaneous: If you go out to Sunset (north) or Sandy beach (east)on Oahu - watch out for undercurrent, and don't swim out too far - lots of tourists get in trouble that way.
    Also - don't forget to pace yourself - there's lots to see!

    Collapsible Umbrella

    by jaros Written Mar 29, 2005

    Miscellaneous: It rained lightly but often while we were in Kauai and Honolulu. Our small collapsible umbrellas that spend most of their time tucked away in our tote got good exposure.

    Photo Equipment: Take enough film that you don't have to buy any at Sea Life Park. It cost me more there than any place else I went to. I had to buy it or not take any pictures so I was stuck.
