What You Can Expect

Spectacular Haleakala Maui Sunrise Tour

Haleakala National Park, Maui

Haleakala rises over 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) above sea level and is one of Maui’s most stunning icons. Mark Twain, when writing about sunrise at Haleakala Crater in 1866, called it “the most sublime spectacle I have ever witnessed, and the memory of it will remain with me always.”

To take in the magnificent sunrise for yourself, your day begins with an early morning drive through the Kula District, where you’ll pass the Puu Ulaula Overlook and Maui’s rare Silversword plants. Arrive inside the National Park in the early, pre-dawn hours, and seek out a spot on the crater rim for a front row seat to the show. When the sun finally crests the clouds and bathes the crater in light, you’ll witness the legendary sunrise of Haleakala!

The Sunrise Tour was the highlight of our vacation. It was well organized with bathroom and breakfast breaks. The tour guide, Glenn, was a wealth of knowledge. We enjoyed it tremendously! The sunrise was lovely!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Out guide, Glen, was knowledgable and entertaining. The bus was comfortable and our breakfast delicious but nothing can compare to the breathtaking views Mother Nature and Haleakala had in store for us. Mahalo.

This tour really is spectacular just like the title intimates. It was cold up there, not as cold as it could have been but still quite cold so anyone doing this tour should definitely dress warmly, bring gloves, wear layers, carry a blanket, whatever you need. Once warm just stand and wait for the most breathtaking views you will see and experience. Totally worth it, I highly recommend!

Overall highlight of our trip to Maui....despite getting up at 130am to be picked up at 2am. Rory our driver was excellent, he provided a great history of other islands no he way back as well as getting us to the top in enough time to have a prime spot for viewing. While it is a good chunk of time to devote and you have to get up early we were back by 11am with enough time to lounge by the pool and take a much needed nap! Glad we did it and we'll worth it, but no need to do it again on our next trip back whenever that might be!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

The sunrise was indescribably amazing! The tour was great and especially the tour guide!

Note: Dress very warmly, it is freezing up there!! Bundle if you can.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This was pretty cool. We weren't thrilled about being picked up so early at our hotel but it takes awhile to get up to the top of the crater so it was best to have someone else do the driving in the dark in unfamiliar territory. and it was worth it!
Beautiful sunrise above the clouds! Do it!

It's an early wake up call but well worth it.

What a beautiful morning in Hawaii! Rory was an awesome tour guide and has a wealth of knowledge. He ensured we were there early to be standing right by the guard rail. He kept us well informed of what to expect minute by minute. Remember to dress warm and even bring the blanket off your hotel bed my concierge even recommended it! Leave the driving to them well worth it!
