What You Can Expect

Maui Hana Coast Day Trip

Maui Hana Coast Day Trip

This guided tour of the Hana Highway has photo ops around every turn, from thundering waterfalls and sweeping vistas to rural towns by the coast. Visit areas like Pai’a, Keanae, Wailua Falls, and Pua’a Ka’a State Park, and make a stop at Wai’anapanapa State Park—home to a black sand beach.

With your informative local guide behind the wheel, make the journey from Hana town to the spectacular Pools of Ohe’o, where waterfalls spill into crystalline pools from a bamboo forest above. If time and weather conditions allow, there’s even the chance to go for a dip in the famous, oceanfront pools.

Aside from the unforgettable sights, you’ll hear how Hana has played an important role in Hawaii’s history, from being the birthplace of Queen Ka’ahumanu to home of the island’s first resort. Nearly 5,000 people inhabit the district from Keanae to Kipahulu, which generally falls under the “Hana district” that visitors know it today. Finish the tour by wrapping around the backside of Haleakala Crater, with a stop at Maui’s only winery offering a celebratory end to the trip.

Our guide, Steve, was very knowledgeable about all things Maui! Many times during the trip, my husband commented that he was very glad he wasn't driving the Road to Hana! We had a great day and now have a great memory.

The tour was really good. The tour guide very informative. Years of knowledge. We stopped at lots of great spots , got some great shots. I get travel sickness but I was prepared and fine. I took 2 kwell Aussie tablets before hand and wore the wrist bands. Yes there are lots of turns but views amazing. The only thing I would say is that everyone but us had lunch included think booked with someone else - they were all from mainland USA . And you stop at Hana at a pre- booked lunch spot. We were able to buy lunch there - either 27 for meal everyone else got or 19 sandwiches. But they sit you away from main group cause we didn't prepay, felt weird. But tour was great and would recommend.

Tour guide was loaded with Info, scenery was spectacular. We were there during a period of high surf and the vistas were beautiful. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent tour. It is a view of the lush, tropical, unspoiled Maui. The colors of the island are vivid and bold. The long windy road is an adventure, and we saw a beautiful rustic coastline. We learned a lot about the island culture, and I enjoyed every minute.

The trip was fantastic. I have driven to Hana myself before, so I was happy to let someone else do it this time. The guide was very informative and knew everything there was to know about Maui. I had not been to the sacred pool before or continued all the way around Maui from there, so that was great to see. It is a long day touring but well worth it!
