The recent $14-million renovation of the Whaler on Kaanapali Beach is reason enough for this condo resort on Maui to offer discounted rooms this spring starting at $175 a night. The deal: The resort with two 12-story towers offers a package called Rediscover Perfection . (You'll see the deal on the website's home page). Prices start at $175 a night with a two-night minimum stay.) That gets you a studio garden room with a queen- or king-sized bed, full kitchen and private lanai and free Internet access too. When: The offer is good for stays from April 15 to June 19. Tested: I checked online and found a studio garden room available for $175 a night plus tax from May 10-15.

Visitors to Maui who want to learn just a little about native culture can attend a hula lesson at many hotels, but those who want a more in-depth cultural experience may find it at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel . it has a long history of immersing guests in island traditions and offers more than 30 cultural activities each day. Besides hula classes, guests can also study the Hawaiian language or learn to play the ukulele. They can practice their handiwork weaving baskets from the lauhala plant or stringing leis from fragrant flowers.

The planning process could not find a more pleasant place to succeed than at the sprawling, splendid Kaanapali Beach Resort here. As the history of planning has sadly illustrated, long-range master plans for such desirable areas rarely extend beyond the paper on which they are printed.

Dave Stockton birdied three of the final four holes Saturday to take a one-shot lead after two rounds of the $550,000 Kaanapali Classic on Maui. Stockton was at 10-under 132 after his second consecutive 66 over the par-71 Kaanapali North Course. First-round co-leader Tom Wargo was at 133, with fellow co-leader Bob Murphy at 134 along with Mike Hill. Bruce Crampton and Lee Trevino are at 135. Stockton, the PGA Senior Tour's leading money winner, started the day one shot off the lead.

WHERE TO STAY The Lahaina-Kaanapali area is full of hotels and condos. I dodged the priciest, most luxurious properties (including the Ritz-Carlton in Kapalua and the Hyatt Regency in Kaanapali) and wasn't impressed by a few of the low-end properties (including Lahaina's Best Western Pioneer Inn and the Aston Kaanapali Shores condos). Between those extremes, here are four hotels I checked out and liked. Plantation Inn, 174 Lahainaluna Road, Lahaina; (800) 433-6815, http://www.

Peacocks wander through the lobby of the NFL's hotel headquarters. Above the rustle of the swaying palms is heard an entirely new sound, the billing and cooing of . . . Pete Rozelle and Al Davis? You've got it. Mr. Establishment seems to be making overtures toward ending hostilities with the pirate chieftain. If Davis hasn't exactly swooned with delight or volunteered to kneel and kiss the ring, he doesn't seem to be turning his commissioner down, either.

Ten major hotels on the Kaanapali "resort row," on the Hawaiian island of Maui, have joined together to lure senior travelers with special discount rates and packages. Kaanapali, situated on a three-mile stretch of white-sand beach, is three miles from the historic whaling town of Lahaina and also has its own shopping center, Whalers Village, which has more than three dozen shops and restaurants. A free trolley shuttle connects all 10 hotels, Whalers Village, local golf courses and Lahaina.

As I plod toward the surf, I'm trying to channel a bit of orca because nothing in the ocean messes with Shamu. I just hope some do-gooder doesn't try to free me or toss me a mackerel. I plan to be underwater for 25 minutes, and I'm told the artificial blubber of the neoprene wet suit will be comforting. My wife, Terri, and I have hooked up with an outfitter for a swim with a twist — snuba — off the beach in Kaanapali, Maui. Think of it as scuba for dummies. Mask, fins, regulator, cool bubbles floating upward — the vast numbers of which indicate I need to slow my gaspiration rate — it's regular "Sea Hunt" stuff, and you don't need a license or certification.

The sunsets are good, as you might expect on the west coast of Maui. But is Lahaina really where you go to hear echoes of the old whaling days and the early missionaries? Or is it a cheesy tourist town? The answer is yes to both. On an island full of natural wonders, most of downtown Lahaina (population: about 9,100) is neither natural nor wonderful. But Front Street, its main drag, has an undeniable vitality. Running right along the waterfront, it seethes with T-shirt shops, boutiques, snack shops and a batch of galleries sporting the psychedelia of Peter Max, the saturated photographic panoramas of Peter Lik and the whales of Wyland.
