Very nice pix! My favorite is the Chambeyronia macrocarpa alley. Love Maui and all the Hawaiian Islands. Truly a tropical paradise.

Your Satakentia is more likely a Neovetchia storkii, and your teddy bears (a name usually reserved for Dypsis leptocheilos) are Dypsis lastellianas. Royal pic. is a good example of two different species of Royal palm... Roystonea olearacea on the left and some othe species (probably regia) on the right.

Great pics, loved them all. But Bismarkias are still my favorite.

Those pics are amazing! Maui (and all of Hawaii) is so beautiful. I agree, I love those bismarkias and I really like the contrast between the large ti plants and the Bismarkias. That water looks great and the whale pic is really cool! Looks like a great time of the year to be in HawaiI!
Thanks for sharing!
