Staying on Maui but want to day trip to another Hawaiian Island? With easy interisland tours, you can experience it all—no need to restrict yourself to just one Hawaiian paradise. From Oahu to the Big Island, here are the top things to see and do when you’re island-hopping from Maui.
Oahu Day Trips from Maui
With sights like Pearl Harbor and Waikiki, a trip to Oahu is both memorable and historic. Day-trippers can visit Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial, take a scenic tour of downtown Honolulu, and pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the moment that propelled the United States into World War II. A Pearl Harbor excursion takes you from the site of the Japanese attack on Oahu to the signing of the armistice aboard the USS Missouri. Some day tours include a stop along the iconic North Shore of Oahu, known for its world-class surfing.
Big Island Day Trips from Maui
The Big Island of Hawaii is the only Hawaiian isle to have active volcanoes. Needless to say these are some of the Big Island’s most popular attractions, and they are most amazing and beautiful when seen from the air. For this reason, scenic helicopter tours from Maui are a great way for adventurous travelers not only to see Maui’s coast, inland waterfalls, and Haleakala Crater from above, but also to witness the majestic volcanoes of Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, and Kilauea—the world’s most active volcano. On-land tours also include Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, lava tubes, Hilo, and Rainbow Falls.
