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 absolutely loved this tour. Kristie our tour guide was amazing and so caring!-She was entertaining, knowledgeable and informative. We learned so much about the island of Maui and and the he culture of the people. We saw amazing waterfalls, foliage and eucalyptus trees. Best tour on the island!
We were so thrilled with the choice to use this company for our snorkel sail. The catamaran holds a small amount of people, so it was very intimate. Hands down, THE best crew! Ben and Kaylee were awesome! Food was great and we had so much fun! Highly recommend!
It was awesome! Everything about the tour was explained thoroughly. I felt very safe. I appreciated that a crew member was in the water on a surfboard to help out if a snorkeler was in trouble. Would highly recommend this trip!
10/10 would do again! Great crew - great time! Worth it! Spent half day in Lanai then came and did this, THEN went to Lahaina pizza company. Full day and was awesome!
It was so amazing! I would bring some bug spray and some water shoes!
