You definitely need to do the road to Hana. Waterfalls and lush vegetation everywhere. Ioa Valley is beautiful too. Have fun!

Road to Hana of course, also Haleakala National Park. The road around the northwest part of the island is also spectacular.

Have fun! One of the Mods just got back from severe whale watching adventures off Maui. Maybe go out on one of the rafts and enjoy the water views.

do I drag the 300 F2.8 along? I can pack pretty much everything I could possibly use in one carry on roller... on the other hand, it's more 'stuff' to keep up with...

only if you plan on doing surf and bird photography
when I went, I used my 17-40L for most of the time, had a 100-400L to shoot some of the surfers too but when we went in November, there wasn't much activity yet.

Personally, my long glass stayed in the bag on my last two trips to Hawaii. Only opportunity was to take a close up of a lighthouse from a high vista point like Diamond Head.

My UWA and standard zoom got the most use along with my circular polarizer.

Did a lot of multi-shot panoramics so the tripod, pano head, and a wide prime also got use.

Don't forget to bring stuff to protect your gear from rain just in case.

I'd bring a wide angle, that 300 would be great if you want to shoot the wind surfers. bring a CPL, and maybe a UV filter to protect the lens from blowing sand. It's often very windy there.
