Random Questions Before Next Weeks Trip

Leaving next week and we have a couple of questions I was hoping to get help on.

1) Our hotel includes breakfast but we need to meet our boat at 6:30 AM...we want to pick up musubis the day before, anywhere in Kihei to recommend? (I'm guessing nowhere in Wailea...)

2) We're going out on the 5.5hr Blue Water tour, is their lunch adequate or should we bring extra provisions?

3) Where can we buy fresh lilikoi? Any chance star fruit is in season right now?

4) Looking at the maps, it appears it might be possible to snorkel from Polo to Wailea or vice versa. Provided its a calm ocean day, does anyone think that would work? Or should we just head south to Dumps/Makena/etc?

5) We're staying at the Fairmont Kea Lani, does anyone have any recommendations for specific room wings/locations requests?

The BWR lunch will be adequate.

Check the Whales General Store in the Shops at Wailea for your musubi. Either that or the ABC store that is located right before entering Wailea. You could look at some of the local farmer's markets in Kihei for the fruit, not sure if they are in season right now or not.

Both Polo Beach and Wailea Beach can yield some good snorkeling. Moanakala (the dumps), much better as is Maluaka in Makena.

Most boat tours offer great lunches, no need to supplement.
