Maui Activities

August 14, 2021

Below we’ve shared a bunch of fun things to do on Maui.


ziplineMaui 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, but 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.

No trip to Maui is complete without at least 1 luau experience. There are around a dozen different luaus available on Maui, many of which offer authentic feasts, live music, hula dancing, cultural craft-making displays, historic narration, tropical cocktails, Imu ceremony, and fire knife dancing. Choose the right luau for you and your family, and you’ll be back again next time.

whale watchingWhale Watching

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.
