Dated: January 12 2022
Whether you’re wanting incredible views, wildlife encounters, or an adrenaline fix, these Maui excursions are sure to make your trip into the experience of a lifetime. We’ve also shared a few tips to protect this beautiful island so it will be just as incredible when you visit next.
This breathtaking view on the world’s largest dormant volcano is a fan favorite. Watch the Maui sky change colors as the sun rises above this volcano and its moon-like craters. The view might remind you of looking down on clouds from an airplane. On your way down, you’ll notice the climate and landscapes become lusher and less arid.
You may even see the endangered state birds (nenes) at Haleakala National Park. Consider joining the Adopt-a-Nene program to help conservation efforts.
If you’ve always wanted to learn the basics of surfing, Lahaina’s Waveriders group lessons are for you. Make it a family activity with kids age 10+ welcome in group sessions. Younger children as young as 4 can join in a private or semi-private lesson.
Take in a gorgeous sunset on Maui’s largest catamaran with dining included. Choose from five entrees (vegetarian options available) as you enjoy two cocktails and unlimited non-alcoholic drinks. You’ll see views of Maui, Molokini, Lanai, and even whales when the season is right!
This activity includes snorkeling, marine life encounters, views of Maui, Lanai, and more. This tour gets frequent dolphin sightings, and in season, humpback whales (December–April). Breakfast, lunch, and beverages are included.
If you explore near a coral reef, make sure to wear reef-friendly sunscreen. Also brief your young ones on keeping hands away for both their and the reef’s safety!
Your kids will love this. Cruise through eucalyptus treetops enjoying stellar views of the Pacific Ocean at speeds up to 40 mph and heights up to 70 feet. Kids (and grownups) ages 5 and up are welcome, but don’t worry– if someone “chickens-out,” they receive a full refund.
Before and after forest visits (hiking too), it’s recommended you scrub your shoes with rubbing alcohol. This minimizes the risk of spreading invasive species.
If you’ve already explored Maui on foot and by sea, it’s time to take to the sky. On this Molokai tour, you’ll see aerial views you’ll never forget of West Maui, the world’s tallest sea cliffs, and Hawaii’s tallest waterfall. Seats are limited, so make sure to book well in advance.
