First or second day you are there (when you are still waking up early to Wyoming time), pack some very warm clothes and drive up Mt. Haleakala.
Start your journey early (3am) so you'll be back in the early afternoon.
It's cold and windy on the top of that crater, be prepared.
Some of the most visually stunning views you will ever see.

Do the road to Hana..

Do sunrise on Haleakala..

If you are into snorkeling go to Molokini.. Gotta take a boat out there though..

Lots to do depending on your likes/physical ability..

Take a lot of money and you can't go wrong..

Maui is fabulous. Did a couple of excursions where we went snorkeling in a dormant volcano crater and it was amazing.

When we were Maui we went on a submarine tour it went down to 128 feet it was pretty neat to see how clear the water was . I remember eating lunch at a restaurant right on the beach and a Bud Light was 9.00$ a bottle. When we went we went on a 7 day cruise of the Islands on a cruise ship.

That crater is Molokini.. Awesome.. You could see the different colored coral on bottom.. Asked the boat operator how deep it was and he turned the depthfinder on and it was 128 feet deep..

They also have Snuba equipment on boat for a charge.. But hose is only 20-30 feet long..

Good stuff, road to Hana is awesome. Snorkeling at Molokini is breathtaking! Good advice here.

Drive the Road to Hana.

Lots of neat shops and historical sites for the whaling industry in Lahaina.

Dive Black Rock beach at night for the manta ray show.

Look into doing some hog or bird hunting. They have something like 10 species of pheasant on that island.

I was stationed in Pearl Harbor for a little over 3 years. Maui is a neat place to visit.

Definitely the road to Hana.
A luau is a must, check reviews, some are certainly better than others.
I was never surprised by the price of anything, but if you have the means stop at CostCo right outside the airport and pick up anything you might want. (bottled water, beer, snacks)
Side note, don't worry about the chickens, they are everywhere.
Monchong was my favorite fish.

A few things about the above suggestions:

1. You can't just drive up to Haleakala for the sunrise, you have to have a reservation to enter the park that early. Reservations are difficult to get, but they do set aside a limited number of last minute spots that you can grab when they become available the day before. So you'll have to be online and ready. Park passes are $25 for the day on top of that. Also, sunrise is hit/miss as far as what you'll actually be able to see. Clouds/fog aren't unusual at all so you'll have to be lucky to actually make sunrise worthwhile.

If you're in great shape, skip sunrise and instead do the summit to Hale Mau'u hike (13 miles) when the park opens for normal traffic. It's fantastic and well worth a day. Let me know if you want info on that.

2. If you go to Hana start EARLY. You'll want to go to Waiapanapa State Park. The traffic in Waiapanapa is insane. DO NOT try to park down in the last parking lots. You'll go down a terrible road and you'll come to a place where everyone is going left to the parking lots. On the right you'll see a road with a sign that says To Cabins. Take that road and park in the lot on your immediate left. You'll save a ton of time doing this because everyone else will be spending an hour trying to find a parking spot in the other two lots.

On the way, Keanae is just OK, there isn't much there. But it might be worth stopping if you've never seen it. Nahiku is much prettier and more interesting, but you have to park and walk a ways.

3. Molokini snorkeling is OK, but everything is pretty far down. Take a different snorkeling tour if you want to be more up-close to the fish and turtles. Many of the smaller operators are more run-and-gun - they'll take you to a spot that's been good lately, but if there isn't much there then they'll take you somewhere else to see if it's better. You can also go get some cheap snorkel gear at Walmart (or there might be some in your condo) and go to Ahihi-Kinau off Makena road south of Wailea. Park and go snorkel off the beach for free and see plenty of fish.

4. A day trip to the Arizona would be difficult. There's a LOT to see there. It's more than a day trip to see everything if you're already in Honolulu. But if all you want to see is just the Arizona or maybe the Arizona and one other thing like the Missouri, you won't have a problem. NO BAGS OF ANY KIND are allowed at the Arizona, you'll have to either travel light or pay for storage. There isn't much food there to be bought either, I think I paid $12 for a hotdog and that's about all that was available.

Let me know if you have questions, I was on Maui for a month in late 2019.

That’s awesome. Take some pictures to share with those of who want to live vicariously through your trip please.
