New Summer Adventure Guide Available, Free

MA'ALAEA, MAUI, HI -- Just in time for summer, Pacific Whale Foundation has launched a new magazine to help visitors enjoy the best of Maui's outdoor activities. Copies of the magazine can be picked up at magazine racks located throughout the island and at the airport.

"For Pacific Whale Foundation, Maui is our home, and has been for the past 30 years," wrote Tracy A. Jones, Executive Director, on the magazine's introduction page. "During these three decades, our staff has explored this island tirelessly, discovering the best beaches, finest snorkeling spots, most satisfying and affordable places to eat and the most memorable outdoor adventures." "We're a non-profit research, education and conservation organization but we spend each and every day with visitors," she notes. "More than three million people have joined us on our Pacific Whale Foundation Eco-Adventures.

We love sharing the best of our island with those who travel here from near and far." The 16-page, full-color magazine includes an events calendar; information on Pacific Whale Foundation's Volunteering on Vacation program; a guide to watching Maui's wild dolphins, turtles and monk seals; a map showing recommended snorkeling spots; an article about Molokini Marine Preserve; and a guide to "freebie fun" activities on Maui.

There's also an article in celebration of Pacific Whale Foundation's 30th Anniversary as a nonprofit organization, including photos of "save the whales" protests during the late 1970s. "We had fun polling our staff for their recommendations on fun things to do and great places to visit," says Jones. "It's our hope that the magazine reflects that sense of fun and adventure."

Copies of the magazine can be picked up at Pacific Whale Foundation's Ocean Stores at 612 Front Street in Lahaina and at the Harbor Shops at Ma'alaea (next to Maui Ocean Center).
