King’s Hawaiian is also available at Safeway.

Restaurants:

Maui Brick Oven is a GF pizza place...very small.  Has a great allergen chart on line.  Only nuts where in the pesto sauce and a dessert.  Loved the pizza with the sweet Thai sauce.

Paia Fishmarket, 3 locations, for fish tacos.  No nuts in the kitchen, but they do have sesame.

We had Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice at two different locations.  They were happy to change gloves and use new skewers for DS's serving.  Syrups are kept in separate bottles and just poured over the top.  They also had ice cream but we didn't even look into it.

We also ate at Fleetwood's on their rooftop deck so we could see the bagpiper who was very funny.  DS skipped the bread.  There were nuts on the salads and in some dishes.  DS opted for a burger since we had been eating so much fish, not sure what kind of bun it was, but waiter double checked with kitchen to confirm it was safe.

We went to the Maui Ocean Center which was a great and would definitely recommend.  Kids did a surf lesson in Lahaina with Goofy Foot Surf School...they both loved it.  We also did a kayak and snorkel tour with Maui Kayak Adventures which is an eco friendly company so asked us to use reef safe sunscreen (Badger Sport) which contains zinc as opposed to the chemical based ones which get into the water and can cause hormonal shifts in the fish.  We saw tons of fish, two different kinds of eels and the turtles were scarce and we only saw them once we were back in the kayaks.  Since we had a 4 year old with us, who was not going to snorkel, we did a glass bottom boat tour called the Reef Dancer...it was fine.  The diver's would go down and bring up an urchin or starfish to show around to the windows and then put it back.  We did see a turtle or two swimming, lots of fish, but not octopus.  If you are going to snorkel and don't have small children, then I would skip this.

We had a kitchen and weber grill so we ate breakfast in, sometimes packed lunches, definitely packed snacks, but grilled most dinners.  There is a Target and Costco in Kahului.  Safeway in a couple towns, some nicer than others, some stocked better than others.  But fair warning...groceries are extremely expensive...even the pineapples, but they were so delicious.

Advice on swimming/playing in the ocean...wear your water shoes.  We picked a bad spot to enter and thought the rocks were going to be gone as we got farther out and they weren't.  The adults ended up with most of the cuts...our friend was the worst off and ended up in the medical clinic the next day for a skin infection.  Needless to say the next time we went in to play in the surf, we had our shoes on.
