3 Days in Maui: Suggested Itineraries
By Viator, January 2015
You may have your heart set on relaxing in a hammock, but it's impossible to resist Maui's superb scenery, magical luaus and out-there activities.
Day 1: Maui Highlights
Start the day bright and early with a sunrise visit to the world's largest dormant volcano, Mt. Haleakala. Explore the lush tropical landscape of the eastern Hana coast, or focus on Haleakala National Park and the Iao Valley. For something different, take a trip into the past aboard the sugar-train Kahaina Kaanapali Railroad, or take an exhilarating helicopter flight over Haleakala or the neighboring island of Molokai. At sunset, treat yourself to a gloriously backlit dinner cruise or a traditional luau at a luxury resort - or why not do both with our dinner cruise and luau two-night combo!
Day 2: Outdoor Maui
Maui has swimming, surfing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking and perfect-visibility snorkeling year-round. You can learn to surf like an expert, go snorkeling and turtle-spotting in Molokini Crater, or combine snorkeling and kayaking on Maui's West Shore. Take the wildest eco snorkel tour in Hawaii aboard a traditional outrigger canoe, or go whale-watching from Lahaina, with whale sightings guaranteed! Away from the water, how about biking down the volcanic slopes of Haleakala? Discover Maui's lush interior of streams and waterfalls on a half-day hike, or immerse yourself on a moderately difficult full-day hike.
Day 3: Inter-Island trips from Maui
Take a flying visit from Maui to neighboring islands such as Oahu and the Big Island, or ride the ferries between Maui and Lanai and Molokai. Visit Oahu, taking in the poignant World War II sites of Pearl Harbor, majestic Waikiki Beach and downtown Honolulu. Or take a Polynesian cultural tour. Hop on the Molokai ferry to Hawaii's least developed island, or take a cocktail-hour sunset sailing cruise from Maui to neighboring Lanai and Molokai.
