7 Ways to Celebrate Father's Day on Maui

Posted by Mapuana Andrade on Wednesday, June 15th, 2022 at 7:24am

Living in Hawai'i, we know more than anyone how meaningful ohana or family is. Whether it's heading to the beach, getting together for "no reason" potlucks, or gathering around the bonfire to talk story, there's always time to celebrate the beauty of ohana. We especially love taking the time to honor all the fathers, father figures, and soon-to-be fathers on our island who help create those special moments and are there to be the guiding light on the sea. So this father's day, we've gathered our favorite ways to celebrate, either with Maui-made gifts or our favorite island activities. 


Maui Brewing Co 

Maui brewed craft beer. Need we say more? 

If Maui Brewing Co's handcrafted beer is not enough to steal dad's heart away this Father's Day, grab a picnic table on their patio and bask in the Kihei sunset glow. Let a cold mug of their signature Bikini Blonde Lager, Coconut Hiwa Porter, or Big Swell IPA keep him cool on a hot Maui afternoon. Then, spoil him into the evening by having dinner in the restaurant and enjoying the local ingredients!

Wailuku Coffee Company

Always brewing up a way to say "I love you," Wailuku Coffee Company serves the best coffee and pastries. So take dad on a coffee date and spend time walking around Wailuku town, checking out the shops, or just sitting and enjoying a homemade breakfast burrito or vegan brownie. Wailuku Coffee Company also proudly supports local artists & charities through their monthly art shows that donate 15% of all art sales to local non-profit charities.

So whether dad is a first-time surfer, hasn't surfed in a while, or is looking for a family-fun activity, Swell Maui Surf can help everyone feel comfortable in the water and improve their skills. Your surf instructor will be by your side throughout your lesson, patiently guiding you in proper paddling & stance techniques, etiquette & how to handle your board in every situation.

Solely Aloha

Just like a father, this family-owned and operated Boutique pours its aloha into everything they create. Offering apparel & clothing with a local flair, this small family business is home to local artists all over Maui and is the creator of the famous Aloha Shapes® logo. So get dad a unique t-shirt, hat, or sticker for his truck that he can use this summer that always reminds him of you.

Tin Roof Mochiko Chicken (Top Chef's Sheldon Simeon) 

Do you want to treat dad to a delicious meal that doesn't break the bank? You're in luck! Local food hero and Top Chef contestant Sheldon Simeon's Kahului restaurant, Tin Roof, is the best on the island. Try his world-renowned homemade mochiko chicken, made with ginger sake shoyu, sweet mochiko batter, and su-miso sauce with gochujang aioli. Tin Roof takes something as simple as local plate lunches and turns them into a dish with flavors you'd expect at a 5-star restaurant.
