Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Haleakala Maui Sunrise Tour with Breakfast

Haleakala National Park, Maui

Start your day in Maui with a breathtaking sunrise view of the island from atop its highest peak on this daybreak excursion to Mount Haleakala. This exceptional sunrise experience is sure to be a highlight of your trip to Maui.

Start your trip in the dark of the very early morning with a pickup at your Maui hotel. You’ll then continue by air-conditioned minibus on a scenic drive through the island, passing the Kula District, Puu Ulaula Overlook and Maui’s rare silversword plants.

Continue with a steady climb by minibus up Haleakala, rising more than 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) above sea level. The views from up above are nothing short of spectacular. Writer Mark Twain, upon visiting the peak in 1866, wrote that the volcano was “the most sublime spectacle I ever witnessed and the memory of it will remain with me always.”

Arrive at the summit and settle in as you observe the first rays of the new day slowly creep across the distant horizon. Soon the sky fills with the majestic glow of the new day, and the warm beams of light creep across the island of Maui, illuminating the land below. It’s a sight you’re sure to remember for many years to come.

At the end of your morning sunrise experience you’ll receive a drop-off back at your Maui hotel, tired but thrilled by your amazing morning trip.

Despite the early start this tour is well worth the early start. Be prepared it can be very, very cold especially before sunrise, but it is beautiful watching black turn to indigo, blue, then orange. Thaw out in the warmth of the suns first rays, and watch the stark landscape appear, as the world comes alive.
Maui Sunrise looked after us with coffee, and fantastic service.

Well worth the early morning and cold. Seeing the space station fly over was an unexpected highlight. The view was fantastic. This tour is all the more relevant after reading about Maui the Demi god

Our tour driver Nettie was amazing. Because of her, we were able to have a full experience of Haleakala sunrise. The weather was somewhat cloudy but it was still beautiful and surreal. Highly recommended.

This Sunrise tour was absolutely an amazing experience and so worth it. The tour leaves really early around 2am, so if you are coming in from stateside I would recommend doing the tour on your first morning as it is easier to adjust to the time difference. The tour arrives about an hour before sunrise which gives you time to take in the night sky, gazing at the stars and you can even see a few planets. It is very cold so dress warm and be sure to bundle up. Also a small flashlight is helpful for navigating before sunrise.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This trip obviously starts out very early. I suggest it be one of the first things you do after arriving in Maui so it's easier to get up so early. Wayne was a wonderful guide and extremely knowledgeable about Hawaiian history. Haleakala didn't disappoint!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2017
