Maui Updates & Changes
It happens every time. The day after we send the disks off to the printers for our brand new edition, somebody changes something that directly affects what we write. Several times we’ve e-mailed these changes to the printers. (It’s our only chance to yell that classic publisher line, Stop the presses!) But after the presses roll we’re left shaking our heads, saying, “Yeah, we know that changed. We’ll correct that in our next printing.” The internet is the next best thing to yanking back all the books in print and scribbling in the changes that always occur.
At Wizard Publications we continually strive to bring you the most up-to-date and accurate information on the islands. We are the only publisher who updates our books every time we reprint them. So if you see the updates below already listed in the book you just bought, you may have a recent printing.
The updates below are for the 8th edition of Maui Revealed. Note: all pages numbers refer to the printed edition of the book. There are no longer any updates to previous editions on this site.
Updates to 8th Edition – Maui Revealed
- Barnes & Noble (page 43) has temporarily moved to Maui Marketplace while searching for a permanent location. Their new address is 270 Dairy Rd., Kahului and their new phone number is 808-214-6807.
- Seven Sacred Pools—‘Ohe‘o Gulch (page 104, 108 & 109) had a rockslide on Jan. 3, 2017 that forced the closure of the Pools of ʻOheʻo in Haleakala National Park until further notice.
- Kalaupapa Guided Mule Tours (page 256) are in a state of flux. Contact both the state and Damien Tours (808-567-6171) if you wish to visit Kalaupapa Peninsula. Here’s the official word from the state:“Those who wish to access the trail are required by State of Hawaii law to contact the State for approval and a written permit. Per State law, violators are subject to a citation and $500 fine, and those who are granted permission are not allowed to bring anyone 16 years of age or younger.

- ‘Ulalena (page 308) is temporarily closed because the Maui Theatre is closed while it searches for a new owner.
General Information & Updates:
- (Ok, this isn’t really an update but we thought we’d put it in here to help avoid confusion). We’ve gotten a few e-mails asking us why the time-saving road linking Wailea with Kula upcountry isn’t on our maps (though it is on other maps). At the risk of sounding self-serving, the other maps are slightly… not right…Ok they’re wrong! As mentioned on page 142, that road is private, gated and not accessible. We won’t print it if we haven’t driven it. Same for the Oprah Highway…
