Maui, Hawaii (PRWEB) November 09, 2012
Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea has announced this season’s first sightings of the majestic, acrobatic humpback whales singing their amazing songs in the warm, deep blue Pacific Ocean visible from the Hawaiian luxury resort’s beach. Maui’s most beloved marine mammal visitors know that every migratory trip must include appearances at the Forbes Five-Star property in Maui at Wailea, returning by the thousands each winter season to these tropical shores.
“The sights and sounds of these impressive 50-foot mammals takes the vacation experience to an entirely new level,” says Thomas Steinhauer, Four Seasons Resort Maui’s General Manager and Regional Vice President. “Every season, our guests tell us that the memory of this experience lasts far longer than the pictures they take. It is an experience they can share with family and friendsand one that becomes a lifetime memory told and retold.”
This year, guests at the luxury resort in Maui at Wailea will have many whale watching opportunities to take part in and see these majestic North Pacific humpback whales put on their spectacular showclose up, from the sky and right from the Resort situated on Maui’s finest stretch of beach.

Question by InMyOpinion: What island vacation spot would be safest for kids with peanut allergies?
I want to take a vacation to somewhere hot and sunny this winter. My kids both have life-threatning allergies to peanuts and nuts. I know alot of island cultures use alot of peanuts/nuts in their cooking, or just simply are uneducated about food allergies ie. don’t understand cross contamination with cooking equipment, “may contain traces”, just think that if it has no peanuts or nuts in it then it’s safe. So does anyone know which island would be my safest bet, which island would be the most educated about this subject? Have any of you travelled to an island with kids with severe food allergies?
Answer by Erik
All of them will be equally dangerous. You can’t assume any population will be 100% educated on maintaining perfect allergy safety.
Because the price of failure is death: Buy your own unprepared food, fresh at local markets, and prepare it yourself. Don’t trust others to prepare safely.
That way, you can choose islands for other reasons.
You should consider renting a vacation studio apartment with its own kitchen.
