New Artists to Maui Hands
Sunrise Shell jewelry by Mac Dunford
Mac just gave us a great selection of jewelry in all four of our Maui Hands locations. Earrings, necklaces, & bracelets!
The Art of
Derek Fine was introduced to scrimshaw by his Father, renowned scrimshaw and whaling art authority, Doug Fine. At age ten he began doing the art of scrimshaw and at age nineteen was working professionally. Since 1990 Derek has pursued his scrimshaw career on the island of Maui. His most popular subjects continue to be traditional whaling scenes and Hawaii’s diverse marine life. Derek is following in his father’s footsteps, hoping to someday become a sought after name as a foremost Scrimshander and authority on whaling art.
Derek’s pieces can be found in all 4 of our Maui Hands locations, as well as on our website (under “gifts”)

Panna’s Pono and Auwe!
It’s not a surprise at all, 3 of the top 25 beaches in the US are right here on Maui!
Kāʻanapali Beach placed third, Nāpili Beach came in 15th, and Wailea in 16th.
Both Kāʻanapali and Nāpili are on Maui’s west side, while Wailea is on the south!
If you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting these beaches yet, we hope you do so soon!
Ratings were determined based on the “quantity and quality of traveler reviews and ratings for beaches on TripAdvisor”
Less Humpback Whales?
529 Humpback Whales were counted off of Maui’s shores, with the most sightings coming from McGregor Point.
Unfortunately this number is 455 fewer than this time last year.
PWF Senior Research Analyst stated that the difference could simply be that the peak of Humpback season could be occurring earlier or later than it has in the past.
