The Kaanapali Trolley is free, clean and convenient for tourists and visitors to west Maui staying in the Kaanapali Resort Area. It slowly moves between the various resorts, with Whaler’s Village being the central pick-up and drop-off location.
Please remember: The Kaanapali Trolley does NOT go to Lahaina Town, nor travel north to Honua Kai, Kaanapali Shores, and resorts past the Maui Kaanapali Villas. It is not a legal vehicle on the highway and only operates in the Kaanapali Resort area.
While the trolley is free of charge, tipping the driver is encouraged!
The trolley runs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m and makes a big loop to all the resorts below about every 30 to 40 minutes. It is wheel chair accessible. There is a 50-minute lunch and dinner break for the trolley driver at 11:55 a.m. and 6:10 p.m.
Pick-up and drop-off locations (in exact order) are:
- Sheraton Maui
- Kaanapali Beach Hotel

- Westin Maui
- Kaanapali Ali’i
- Maui Marriott Resort
- Hyatt Regency Maui
- Golf Courses & Roy’s Restaurant
- Kaanapali Royale
- Maui Eldorado

- The Kaanapali Trolley does NOT go into the town of Lahaina.
- You can catch the City Bus at Whaler’s Village and for $2 each way ride into Lahaina Town.
- The trolley often runs a bit late because of traffic or wheel chair occupants.
- The last trolley run is at 9:40 p.m.
- Tell the trolley driver your final location when you enter the trolley.
- If going to a resort luau, please allot enough time to arrive at the destination early so you won’t be late.

Things To Do On Maui!
Visit Honolua Bay when you’re on the west side of Maui, and maybe grab a pizza at Dollie’s. There plenty of activities on Maui and also some of the best burger places are in Lahaina Town. Don’t forget to make a trip to Haleakala Crater and snorkel at Black Rock or Airport Beach.
Looking for a great breakfast? Try The Gazebo in Napili. Do some shopping at Lahaina Cannery Mall, try some pizza in Lahaina Town at Prison Street Pizza, or go upcountry and have a great steak at Makawao Steakhouse.
Here’s a few West Maui beaches to enjoy:
Aloha – Enjoy Maui!
Beaches. Maui has some of the best beaches in the world. Napili Bay and Kapalua Bay on the west side of the island are popular snorkel locations, and everyone loves Baby Beach in Lahaina. Honolua Bay is also awesome for snorkeling, and Slaughterhouse Beach nearby is a tourist favorite. Don’t forget to try D.T. Fleming Beach Park.
Top 10 Lists. Take a look at my Top 10 Activities on Maui, and my Top 10 Restaurants. There’s also my Top 10 Attractions while visiting Maui and, of course, my Top 7 Shopping places and Top 5 Luau experiences.
Eating & Drinking. Oh, yea. You’ve also got to eat and drink while visiting Maui. Well, for breakfast The Gazebo in Napili is a “must-do tradition,” along with the Kihei Café. For pizza, try Prison Street Pizza in Lahaina or Dollie’s Pub & Café in Napili.
In the upcountry town of Makawao are two good places to eat – Casanova Italian Restaurant and Makawao Steak House. Stop at this “Hawaiian cowboy” town on your way down from a sunrise visit at Haleakala Crater.
