Maui Updates & Changes
Updates to 8th Edition
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.
- 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.
- Kalaupapa Guided Mule Tours (page 256) a landslide in December 2018 took out one of the bridges along the cliffside trail to Kalaupapa. Repairs will likely take months to complete. Until the bridge is repaired, no one will be able to access Kalaupapa by land. You can still visit the settlement by securing a permit through Damien Tours (808-567-6171) and booking a flight through to the Kalaupapa peninsula through Mokulele Airlines (866-260-7070).
- ‘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…
