One of the many benefits of staying at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach is its convenient location in the heart of Kaanapali Resort. However if you plan on exploring other parts of the island during your stay, or need transporation to and from the Airport, here are some excellent links to start your planning.

Car Rentals

We suggest Discount Hawaii Car Rental. They provide the easiest access to the majority of all car rental companies here on Maui for quick price comparisons.  Click here to book your discount car rental.


A common way to trim the cost of renting a car is to take a shuttle to The Whaler upon arrival and use the first few days of your trip to enjoy Kaanapali itself. We suggest using Speedi Shuttle. They provide door-to-door service from both the Kapalua and Kahului airports. Click here to book your shuttle.  

Public Transportation

The Maui Bus system is an easy and very economical way to get around West Maui. You can catch the shuttle from Whalers Village with routes taking you north to Kapalua and south into Lahaina town. Each leg costs $2. You can also take the bus to other parts of the island with transfers.  For more information call 808-871-4838.  The pick up location in Kaanapali Resort is located directly in front of Whalers Village Shopping Center.  View the bus schedule online at:
