Top 10 things to do on Maui
Maui’s spectacular beaches and lush valleys offer endless outdoor experiences, including surfing, hiking, skydiving, helicopter tours, paddle sports, whale-watching, and zip lining. Take advantage of all the fun activities available year round.
4. Whale watching season
Every year, thousands of majestic whales migrate back to the islands to mate. Whale watching season runs from the beginning of December to the end of April every year. Take a boat tour from Maalaea Harbor or Lahaina Town to cruise out to the Maui Channel and see the whales flap their fins and leap through the waves.
5. ‘Iao Valley State Park
Hike through ‘Iao Valley, located in Central Maui, to the famous ‘Iao Needle Lookout and take in the views of this lush tropical rainforest. Along the trail, you may even see waterfalls peeking in the distance. Be prepared to bring cash, as there is a fee for parking.
6. Upcountry Maui
Head up north to Kula to visit Maui’s famous farm region, Upcountry. Here, you can visit the Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm, pet a baby goat at Surfing Goat Farm, do a vodka and rum distillery tour at Hawaii Sea Spirits Organic Farm and Distillery, or do a pineapple wine tasting at Ulupalakua Vineyards.
7. Old Town Lahaina
Head down to Banyan Court Park to see one of the world’s largest banyan trees. Enjoy your day walking along downtown Front Street, lined with local restaurants and shops. Cool off and enjoy some famous Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice.
8. Nakalele blowhole
In Hawaiian, Nakalele means "the leaning". The hike down to the sea cliffs is known to have dangerous conditions when waves crash in, so be careful when hiking down to the blowhole. Be sure to snap a picture in front of the famous heart-shaped rock on your way back up.

What people are saying about Maui
We were able to book last minute. We learned the day before that the kayak and snorkeling portion of the trip was cancelled due to large swells and low visibility. They refunded a portion of our trip and took us on a longer hike to more waterfalls. We weren't disappointed and it turned out to be one of our favourite days in Hawaii. Tim was an excellent guide. Highly recommend.
Captain Patrick and his crew were very friendly and informative. They made sure everyone had a great time. The tour included breakfast and lunch and a variety of drinks. The tour was definitely money well spent. The entire crew was amazing and so helpful! We had such a great time, thank you for making our experience to fun!
My kids and I really enjoyed this trip. The boat ride to Molokini was an hour long but it was relaxing and we enjoyed the beautiful views. The staff were all very nice and helpful. I would recommend this trip.
Al, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and a great energy to be around. Highly recommended as watching the sunrise from a volcano top was definitely an unforgettable experience!
All the crew were friendly and they have more then just snorkels - slide-platform to jump from. I would use this company for sure in the future
