Bummed you can’t spend 365 days a year soaking up the sunshine and scenery of Maui? No worries! We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite island Instagram accounts so you can get your vacation vibes from some of Maui’s best just by scrolling your feed.
YOUR DAILY DOSE OF STOKE
Planning a trip to Maui? Check out @mauihi for all the vacation inspiration you could ever want. They post stunning shots from all over the island and share posts from local attractions so you can see all the best the island has to offer, from the most beautiful beaches to the best place to rent a surfboard. No vacation plans in your future? All the more reason to give this account a follow.
If your idea of a perfect Maui vacation is spending the whole time underwater with a mask and snorkel, check out @the_salty_stoke for all those sea life shots you never can seem to capture with your GoPro. This guy is either always in the right spot or he has the best turtle karma we’ve ever seen — probably a little of both judging from the incredible feed filled with Hawaiian honu and every other bit of marine life you could hope to encounter.
Ever wonder what it would be like to uproot your family, move to Maui, and live a sunshine filled life just you and your tribe? Well, @chelsea.jean did just that, and pursuing her island dream seems to be going quite well for her. Follow her adventures for some major life #goals inspiration and share in the adventure as she and her ohana explore their island home and continue to grow their pack of explorers — keiki #5 is on the way!
While most tourism companies on Maui claim to be eco-tours, these guys set the standard. Maui’s first Certified B Corp, @hawaiianpaddlesports is all about sustainability, cultural awareness, and community involvement. Look them up to see what awesome good deeds they’re doing for the ‘āina and ways you can get involved; also to see some pretty sweet shots of surfing, SUP and canoe paddling, and our personal favorite — sailing tours on their outrigger!
Whether you’re legitimately seeking a Maui photographer to capture the essence of your wedding day or you’re just a hopeless romantic, @mauimakaphotography‘s lovely and ethereal Instagram account is by all means worth a follow. Brides and bathing beauties grace this feed alongside palm trees and sweeping seascapes that somehow make Maui look even more fairytale-like than it already is.
We have a saying here, Maui Nō Ka ʻOi, which means Maui is the Best. We agree, and so does the guy behind @nokaoimedia, who has a knack for getting incredible footage of all that Maui has to offer. Give him a follow for sun drenched lifestyle shots and sweet drone pics and videos of his adventures both on land and on sea.
Disclaimer — this account will make you want to quit your day job. While @aloha_outdoors is shots from all over Hawaii and not exclusively Maui, we’ve not seen another feed quite so dreamy. Well curated and beautiful, this account is exactly what the name suggests, a celebration of the incredible nature surrounding us in Hawaii. Follow them on Instagram and use hashtag #alohaoutdoors for a chance to get your own island photos featured!
Last but not least, speaking of Maui’s best, if you’re not already following us at @sail_maui, do it! We post photos daily of all the fun we’re having sailing and snorkeling and love it when guests tag us so we can share their photos too! We also offer charters on @blue_maui, and you can check them out for more awesome ocean adventures. #aloha
