Maui Hawaii

Consider Maui your outdoor zoo. As you might expect for an island, Maui is rich in sea life like dolphins, sea turtles and whales. You’ll also find other wildlife, such as birds, mongoose, wild boar and a wild Hawaiian goose called a nēnē.

The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa in Lahaina is the only hotel in Hawaii with an on-site penguin colony. Hotel guests and visitors can watch several penguins swim and waddle at a free feeding at 9:30 a.m. each day in the atrium lobby.

Note: I snapped the featured photo of a Maui road sign warning of a nēnē crossing.
