What To Expect

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 passing the Kula District. and Maui’s rare silversword plants.

Arriving at the Haleakala National Park, steadily climb by minibus up Haleakala to 9,740 feet elevation to the Visitor Center. You’ll see Maui’s rare and endemic silversword plants that poignantly bloom once, then perish. You’ll also witness the sunrise from the Visitor Center area. The views from Haleakala 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.”

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 head to breakfast at a local restaurant and then receive a drop-off back at your Maui hotel, tired but thrilled by your amazing morning trip.

Sunrise Moment
Amy_B, Jul 2022
We loved watching the Hawaiian dust and beautiful sunrise, despite the crazy wind! And go top it off-Mac nut pancakes in such a special place. Worth it.
Absolutely breathtaking and a once in a lifetime experience.
Randy_W, Jul 2022
It was a beautiful sunrise at an incredibly special place that our family was able to share together...once in a lifetime.
A must-do experience.
Patrick_B, Jun 2022
Amazing experience. My only complaint is waiting in a parking lot at 2 am for an hour after the scheduled departure time for pickup. They really need work on respecting people's time when a pickup is scheduled. After pickup though, everything was amazing. Dino was a great guide. Dress warmer than you think. Wind chill well below freezing with high winds.
Great times
LAL_G, Jun 2022
It was very fun and memorable. Our guide Al was excellent and prepared us for each step of the trip with humor, and his obvious experience. It couldn’t have gone smoother, and the views from the top were stunning and unforgettable. Just be prepared for the cold!
Great sunrise only one doubt
Kyle_I, Jun 2022
Wayne was outstanding and full Of information. Sunrise was awesome. Only downside is they were 40 minutes late picking us up. Had us very worried we got take.
Glad we chose to go!
Diana_B, Jun 2022
The sight was like being on the moon. The sunrise and shadows were most awe inspiring. Our guide, Dustin, from Australia was knowledgeable, entertaining, cautious about our safety, fun.
Worth the view!
Laurell_K, Jun 2022
Waking up early was not an issue at all considering our driver didn’t take for very long and let us sleep on the way to the top. We were able to get there first and pick our spots on the peak. On the way back down our driver was very informative and kind. Breakfast had an amazing view and was pretty good. My best advice is to bring a coat if you can and hat and gloves. I’m from Nebraska and it was still pretty cold waiting for the sun to rise that hour before.
Katie_B, Jun 2022
WOW! This experience is 110% worth booking for your trip to Maui! Our tour guide, Preston, was so knowledgeable and made sure he talked to everyone- he was AMAZING! The bus was so comfortable ( nap on the way there). Breakfast was delicious with incredible views. The whole tour is picture perfect! BOOK IT!
Great tour but no sunrise
Autumn_B, Jun 2022
Our tour guide Preston was amazing. He made the trip worth while and did a great job at making sure we still had a good time and saw other great views since we didn’t see much of a sunrise because of cloudy weather. He was so informative and shared a lot of history on the way back which I really enjoyed. I know the outcome of the sunrise can’t be predicted but I think the price should be adjusted accordingly for people who don’t get to see it due to weather/clouds. Or offer them another trip back up another day if they wish. (I doubt everyone would even take that offer since it’s so early and due to other plans.) But it would be a nice option. Since now I just feel like I’m out of $430. Thank goodness for the great tour guide because if it wasn’t for him I’d be beyond let down with the whole experience. But I can’t say I would recommend to anyone because of the fact of losing so much money if the weather doesn’t play out.

The tour itself was good....
Taylor_J, Jun 2022
The tour itself was good. Weather was not on our side that morning. Terrible wind/rain/fog. Couldn’t see anything. But I know that was no one’s fault. The only reason I’m giving them 4 stars was because the AC was not working on the way up to the top. It was hot and we couldn’t breathe. Over all good tour.

Must see experience!!

Long day but worth it, Wayne picked us up from the hotel and had lots of good info about everything. Preston from down under did an amazing job and showed us things that no other tour did. Very knowledgeable and interactive. Incredible experience !

Safiya_M, Jun 2022
Enjoyed ourselves. Driver was fun. Sunrise was cold but amazing. Breakfast was delicious. Would highly recommend.
Charles_B, Jun 2022
Amazing experience!!!! Once in a lifetime. The bus was comfortable and picked us up on time from our west Maui hotel. Dino the driver was very personable and knowledgeable. It is SOOOOO cold at the top. Bring more then a sweatshirt, I’d bring hat, gloves, coat of if you can or blanket. Breakfast was delicious with an unbelievable view of Maui.
Great Family Memories!
Charmaine_S, Jun 2022
This was really a great tour, so thankful my family was able to experience something so magical. The weather was perfect, of course cold, however no rain. Our driver Alfredo aka Al Capone, LOL was wonderful! He’s pleasant, funny, knowledgeable and excellent story teller. Do it if you can, you won’t regret it!
Do it and dress warm!
Matthew_R, Jun 2022
Fantastic trip. Dedno the Filipino was an amazing guide and got us to the summit before all the other groups and guided us to the best spots for the sunrise.
michael_I, Jun 2022
The crew was great. Made everything easy. Food and drinks were perfect. Fun seeing all the turtles and fish
Wonderful experience

Alfredo our tour guide was funny and knowledgeable. He made sure we have a fun and safe trip. Definitely recommend this tour
Above the clouds
Joe_H, Jun 2022
Being above the clouds seemed so surreal. It was just beautiful! The crater looked much different than I had expected but it was still awesome! I have to say, though, that it was very difficult getting to the spot by the fence that our driver suggested. It is pitch black with no guardrails on part of the path to get to the fence. Quite scary.
Must Do Excursion in Maui
Hiram_B, Jun 2022
Preston was a very kind and knowledgeable guide. He was very considerate and made our trip wonderful. It’s early in the morning pickup but not bad due to being able to rest on the beautiful comfortable bus on the way to the sunrise. Such a Must Do excursion in Maui !!
A Must See
Thomas_L, Jun 2022
