100.5 The River‘s Andy Rent is touring Hawaii with YMT Vacations and about three dozen people for nearly two weeks.

They are all on the Hawaii Kings Tour, a 13-day Hawaiian escape.

The group arrived Wednesday on Maui, and is also spending today on the Hawaiian island lodged at the resort of Kaanapali.

Nicknamed the Valley Isle, from the peak of Haleakalā to its fruit and produce plantations and the sands of its pristine and panoramic beaches, Maui is the second largest of the Hawaii’s islands behind Oahu.
