Re: Visiting Maui

I'm heading over there tomorrow, I'll be in Kaanapali. Did you dive? I've never been diving in Hawaii, and don't know if I should bring my gun or not. Is it pretty easy to shoredive?

Re: Visiting Maui

I ended up diving quite a bit but chose to leave the speargun in the car. I was mostly on the south shore amd didn't see a whole lot of target fish. I did speak to some of the locals who said that the north shore is where its at. Lol they said ot was like a "desert" on this side compared to over there. Oh well there's always next year. Good luck on your trip.

No problem, one last thing though if you do bring your gear dont worry about bringing your weights Maui dive shop rents them out at a flat rate of $15 a week.

Re: Visiting Maui

Greetings, I tried to do some research on legally catching lobster in Hawaii and read some confusing things. Do you need a fishing license? Is it only the males that can be taken? Any size limits? Much appreciated!

Just based off last years regulations:

Ula (spiny lobster): Season closed from May to August, Min size: 3.25 inches (carapace length), No spearing. Whole only, not mutilated. No taking or killing females.

Ula pāpapa (slipper lobster): Season closed from May to August, Min size: 2.75 inches (tail width), No spearing. Whole only, not mutilated. No taking with eggs. No selling or holding for sale with eggs.

Full regulations: https://dlnr.hawaii.gov/dar/files/20...s_Sep_2016.pdf
