MAUI ACTIVITIES YOU SHOULD CONSIDER
There are a lot of activities to choose from on Maui from scuba diving to hiking on top of a volcano or through a bamboo forest. It can be overwhelming trying to fit it all in. And then there is deciding who should take you on these adventures. We have detailed some of the best Maui activities and tours you should consider on your next visit to the Valley Isle.
Snorkeling Molokini Crater & Maui Sunset Sailing
Four Winds II
Sail to Molokini from Maalaea Harbor on the Four Winds II for a smooth trip and a beautiful catamaran. This vessel was specifically designed for trips to Molokini Crater. It’s obvious they care about snorkeling after visiting their glass-bottom viewing room!
We love the Kai Kanani for cocktails and sailing for a perfect Maui sunset. This is a different trip from the Molokini cruise because you leave later. Nothing beats being on the open ocean for a gorgeous sunset while being lulled by warm tropical breezes with a cold cocktail in your hand. They also have fantastic pupus for those that are hungry.
Sailing & Snorkeling on Lana’i
Discovering Maui’s lesser-visited neighboring islands is one of the most unique experiences you can have while visiting the Hawaiian Islands. Trilogy Excursions. departing daily from West Maui’s Lahaina Harbor offers unique snorkeling and sailing excursions to Lanaʻi, known as “The Pineapple Isle.” The only company with permission to bring guests to the award-winning Hulopoʻe Beach Park & Marine Preserve, this tour includes a full day of food, fun, cultural information, cocktails (for guests 21 and over), snorkeling, and sunshine on one of Maui County’s most beautiful beaches.
Fly Through the Sky Ziplining
You’ll never forget the first time you soar above and through trees. Kapalua Ziplines will whisk you along safe zipline courses with incredible views of the ocean and mountains. Experience ziplining with the first zipline course in the United States & enjoy as expert guides tell you about the local nature when you zipline in Maui.
Go Whale Watching
By far the best way to see our visiting Humpback Whales is by boat in Maui. The whales make the journey to the Maui waters in order to mate and give birth during our winter season from approximately December to April each year. Choose from this selection of Maui whale-watching tours.
A Maui vacation is meant to be relaxing, and most people spend the majority of their trip trying to unwind. There is no need to waste a minute of vacation time feeling stressed, sore or uptight!

Experience the Road to Hana
I’m sure you’ve heard it before, and I’ll say it again. Drive the Road to Hana! You don’t have to go all the way to Hana Town in order to experience the beauty of this area. You’ll pass beautiful waterfalls and rugged coastal rainforest. This area is incredible and shouldn’t be missed. Learn more and see photos and video of the Road to Hana.
