Maui is known for its legendary sunsets, so why not watch it while standing atop the tallest peak on Maui? Here at nearly 10,000 feet (3,050 m) on the summit of Haleakala, watch the horizon explode in orange and bathe the island in light. As the oranges turn to blue and violet on the gradual journey towards dark, look towards the sky and watch as stars begin popping out through the heavens. The sunset experience is completely different than visiting Haleakala for sunrise, and in addition to the magical evening light show, guests will visit the Kula Lodge Marketplace on the journey up the mountain, and dine on a tasty, three-course meal at Café O’Lei past dark.

Highlights

  • 5-hour Haleakala sunset tour on Maui
  • Watch the sun descend over the lowlands and see neighboring islands from the volcano's summit
  • Stop at the the Kula Lodge Marketplace and the Haleakala National Park headquarters
  • View the volcanic crater from the Haleakala Visitor Center
  • Enjoy family-style dining with a 3-course dinner at Cafe O'Lei at the Dunes
  • Travel by comfortable coach with hotel pickup and drop-off from select Maui hotels

Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Haleakala Sunset Tour and Dinner on Maui

End your sunset tour with a 3-course dinner including dishes like sirloin steak.

After the convenient hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach, sink into a comfortable seat for the journey up the mountain. Make a stop at the Kula Lodge Marketplace where you can experience the art and culinary talents of Maui and Hawaii's renowned artists and craftsmen.

After a stop at the Haleakala Park Visitor Center at about 7,000 feet (2,134m), make the final, winding, push towards the volcano’s magnificent summit. The crater overlook is just below the summit at 9,740 feet (2,969m), and there’s a good chance you’ll be one of the only people there. Gaze upon the colorful crater with its smooth, lunar cinder cones, and peer across the orange horizon to the peaks of the Big Island in the distance. After staying to watch the stars twinkle high above the volcano, descend the mountain for a three-course meal near sea level at Café O’Lei. Meal options are both meat and vegetarian, and the evening concludes with a convenient drop-off right back at your hotel.

First Course:
Caesar salad
Kula green salad with papaya seed and lilikoi dressing (veg)
Portuguese bean soup
Second Course:
Top sirloin steak

The overall experience was amazing--and the tour guide Henry only made it better! The tour is extremely well organized and efficient, yet we always felt the aloha spirit. What a wonderful opportunity! Roads to and from the top are very winding, so recommend folks prone to motion sickness take appropriate precautions.

I'm so glad that I booked this tour. Our tour guide Henry was the best! He was so funny and knowledgeable and what made it even better was that you could tell that he really loved his job. He was gracious enough to take everyone's pictures so we all go the perfect shots with the sunset behind us.
The sunset was absolutely spectacular, something I will never forget. A definite must of when in Maui!

Really enjoyed the tour! Our driver and tour guide, Henry, was fantastic. He gets 5 stars!!! He was entertaining, attentive, thoughtful and informative, and a safe driver. The sunset was beautiful, and the ride up and back was great and fascinating. I'd do it again and highly recommend if you want to see the crater and at the best time of day for pictures.

Excellent tour! Being above the clouds was unreal. Our tour guide, Judy, was very knowledeable about the area and shared some very interesting facts. The dinner, following sunset was just OK at best. We didn't get to eat until well after 9pm and the food was just mediocre. The server we had was nice and friendly but I got the impression that he, along with the rest of the staff at the restaurant were ready to close up and go home. Still, the sights on the mountain well surpassed the meal.

As others reviewers have said, Henry was great, funny, knowledgeable and a skilled driver. Our weather was good and sunset clear. The disappointing thing was the poor quality of the meal and rushed service waitress literally slammed water glass on table. Go enjoy the view which is totally amazing! Check the weather forecast before you book.

The tour was excellent. The guide was excellent. He gave us a lot of good information about the crater, the plants there, and Maui. We would highly recommend the tour. The only issue was the food included for dinner at the end. The food was not the greatest and our guide told us all drinks that were non-alcoholic were included. The restaurant tried to charge us for the soda we ordered only because our guide told us the soda was included. My husband argues with the restaurant staff and we did not pay but in the future, what is included should be accurately explained. However once again the tour itself was excellent and the crater was a highlight of my trip.
