Below we’ve shared a bunch of fun things to do on Maui.
Maui Zipline Adventures
Soar high above and through the tree line on a safe zipline course. Not only is this one of the more fun and exciting activities to do in Maui, it also is educational. While you take the short hikes from zipline to zipline, you’ll be treated by a well-informed guide with information about the local foliage, animal-life and local culture.
Haleakala Course: 1 1/2 – 2 hours
Kaanapali Course: 3 1/2 – 4 hours
Often if there’s swell in the water or the weather isn’t perfect, Molokini will be your best bet at finding clear waters to snorkel. This sunken volcanic atoll is a marine sanctuary, making it ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving. The amount of life on the reefs can be incredible! Pride of Maui offers some of the best rates and best trips.

In the winter season, Humpback whales migrate across the globe to Maui waters in order to mate and give birth. At peak season, it’s very difficult to look out at the ocean and not see some kind of surface behavior by these huge mammals. Watching them from a boat breaching nearby, singing their songs below you, and enjoying a good sail while you’re at it is worth the world.

While on a kayak, you not only get to enjoy a great sport, but you’re able to go snorkeling, whale and dolphin watching, and see parts of Maui that are rarely seen.

Camping is rapidly becoming one of the best ways to see and experience the best areas of Maui.

Island Surfboard Rentals
We know from many experiences how exhausting it is to travel with surfboards and all your bags. The next best thing is to drive to a surf shop and sort through boards for rent. The best way to surf while on vacation here on Maui is to choose your board from Island Surfboard Rentals’ website, and have it delivered directly to your door. They also have beach gear, water cameras, and every board you could imagine.

Maui Craft Tours
Picture yourself sitting down to a delicious meal at the Mill House with views of the majestic Waikapu Valley where you can actually see the organic farms from which your meal comes from. Then picture yourself walking through vineyards on the slopes of Haleakala with amazing views of both coasts while sipping local wine. Picture yourself then getting a tour through the innovative brewing facility of Maui Brewing Company. Now try and do them all on the same day while driving yourself? Not a great idea or nearly as fun as having a knowledgeable guide driving you and introducing you to the artisans themselves.
