Your Itinerary

Maui

All stops on this tour are completely customizable, and transportation time between stops is included in the total tour time. You can decide if you would like to stay longer at some stops and skip others, the itinerary is totally up to you!

Olowalu Petroglyphs

Also known as Pu'u Kilea in the Hawaiian language, the Olowalu Petroglyphs are located along a basalt cliff in West Maui. About 100 ancient images have been chiseled into the rock here by ancient Hawaiians. You'll be able to see human and animal figures, as well as sails.

Makawao

Makawao is an old, Upcountry, Paniolo town. A Paniolo is a Hawaiian Cowboy. While most visitors had no idea there was such a thing as a Hawaiian Cowboy, they’ve actually been around these-here-parts since the 1800’s.

Honolua Bay

Honolua means “two harbors” in Hawaiian, and this bay was historically used by Honolua Ranch to receive supplies and ship products. The primary draw here today is snorkeling and surfing; you’re always guaranteed to see lots of fish, turtles and coral as long as you’re willing to swim out a bit from the beach.

Iao Valley State Monument

Towering emerald peaks guard the lush valley floor of ʻĪao Valley State Park. Located in Central Maui just west of Wailuku, this peaceful 4,000-acre, 10-mile long park is home to one of Maui's most recognizable landmarks, the 1,200-foot ʻĪao Needle. This iconic green-mantled rock outcropping overlooks ʻĪao stream and is an ideal attraction for easy hiking and sightseeing.

Admission Included

Lahaina Front Street

The second most visited spot in Maui, Lahaina is compact and crowded. It is also the only full-featured, walkable “down-town” you’ll find on Maui.

Punalau Beach

Punalau Beach is a rugged sand beach, the last sandy beach for quite a while, in fact. This isn’t the best place to lay out or go for a swim, but it is a spectacular place to take a quiet and secluded walk. When the surf is up in the winter months it may become crowded as surfers use this beach to access the popular “Windmills” surf break offshore.

Kahakuloa

Kahakuloa is a small isolated village nestled along the shoreline. Called the most isolated village on Maui, most of the folks who live here work here, too. The old and simple missionary founded church (1892) is the subject of many paintings and photographs because it is idyllically situated against both mountain and ocean backdrops.

Lipoa Point

A great vantage point for Honolua Bay, with dirt road and trail access to the shoreline for the explorer. There are many rough paths leading down to the shoreline tidepools, caves, surfing and snorkeling access. 106 acres of the point’s headlands are in conservation. This area was an ancient Hawaiian fishing ground and the headlands contain many archeological sites that have not yet been preserved, marked or maintained.

Makaluapuna Point

As the lava from the West Maui Volcano poured into the ocean, fierce wind and waves forced it back and it cooled into a formation that resembles great black teeth. Makaluapuna Point, as it's also called, was created from one of the last lava flows on Maui. However, the lava is a little different from the rest of the lava on Maui, as it is much lighter, denser, and fine-grained.

Maui Tropical Plantation

Set amid 500 acres (202 hectares) of farmland in Waikapu Valley, Maui Tropical Plantation is a working plantation and agricultural theme park where more than 40 different crops and native plants are grown and harvested. Located on the grounds of a former sugarcane plantation, the park offers a glimpse into Maui’s agricultural past.

Karen Lei's Gallery

Karen Lei’s Gallery isn’t in a trendy strip mall or even easy to get to, but it’s well worth the drive. Her gallery is perched high above the village of Kahakuloa with Elephant Rock as the backdrop. Getting there may be time-consuming, but the views are stunning.

Nakalele Blowhole

This blowhole is large enough to accommodate a manhole cover and is powerful enough to easily blast it high in the air – especially during high surf and tides. (tide forecast) Some jets can approach 50+ feet and if you’re close enough you can feel the ground tremble beneath your feet as water is blasted skywards.
