    Savor authentic Hawaiian dishes and beverages at several establishments in the historical district of Wailuku, which nestles at the foot of the West Maui Mountains.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive in the heart of historical Wailuku, where you will stop in a variety of unpretentious restaurants and locales to sample pure Hawaiian specialties. Some of the dishes will reflect the town’s Asian and Pacific Islander ethnicities.


    While the exact offerings will vary, you can expect to taste breakfast staples such as banana pancakes and hot malasadas, a fried-dough treat that Portuguese sugarcane workers introduced to Hawaii in the late 19th century.


    Loco moco is another classic, and the Tasty Crust has been serving it for more than 40 years in Wailuku. The dish is a savory combination of rice, hamburger patty and brown gravy, topped with a fried egg or two.


    In all likelihood, you will also sample delectable sashimi, a variety of poke bowls and seasoned saimin noodles. Another favorite is Spam musubi, a handheld with a slice of Spam wedged between two blocks of rice and wrapped in nori, a Japanese seaweed.


    You will also sample several beers at the Maui Brewing Company, Hawaii’s largest craft brewery. Selections range from a citrus-flavored India Pale Ale known as Big Swell to Coconut Hiwa Porter, a robust dark ale with hints of mocha.

    Discover Ioa Valley, enjoy a serene stroll through a botanical garden and see how locally grown lavender is infused into all sorts of products. more...

    View a watershed battle site in a verdant valley as a prelude to strolling through a botanical garden and seeing how locally grown lavender is infused into a plethora of products. Iao Valley State Park now covers a mountainous area where King Kamehameha I won the Battle of Kepaniwai in 1790 and united the Hawaiian Islands. The volcanic pinnacle known as the Iao Needle soars above the rainforest there. Similarly, the massive shield volcano Haleakala provides a gorgeous setting for the Kula Botanical Garden. As you meander its garden paths, you may pass koi ponds, walk through a covered bridge and enjoy the soothing sounds of waterfalls. A flourishing lavender farm nearby offers an equally tranquil experience. While exploring on your own, you can take in the sweeping views of Maui’s central valley and see how lavender is grown and used in products such as soaps, essential oils, jelly and candles.


    HIGHLIGHTS

    • See the site of the 1790 battle that led to the unification of the Hawaiian Islands.
    • Stroll the winding paths at the Kula Botanical Garden.
    • Explore a lavender farm and marvel at the array of products made with the flowering plant.

    Soar high above the gorgeous northern shore of Maui in a helicopter and land in a rainforest for a closer look at the tropical landscape. You will fly over thundering waterfalls, the famed windsurfing setting at Ho’okipa Beach, and the mega-surf break at Pe’ahi, a spot with such monstrous swells that it is nicknamed “Jaws.” Many of the locations are so remote that they can only be observed from the air, as there are no roads, only dense jungle and precipitous cliffs. One such site is Keopuka Rock, a steep sliver of an island known as Jurassic Rock because it was featured in the opening sequence of the movie “Jurassic Park.” In time, you will land in a rainforest clearing and toast the experience with a glass of champagne. The landscape there is blanketed with banana trees, papayas, pineapples and lilkoi, a colorful passion flower that grows on a vine.


    HIGHLIGHTS

    • See Maui’s gorgeous northern shore while flying in a helicopter with wraparound windows.
    • View famed surfing and windsurfing beaches, roaring waterfalls and remote sea cliffs.
    • Touch down in a rainforest (landing is dependent on the current weather conditions at flight time) and celebrate the experience with a champagne toast.
    • Total airtime approximately 20 minutes, each way. Landing approximately 30 minutes.


    HELPFUL HINTS

    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
    • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.
    • TO COMPLETE YOUR FLIGHT RESERVATION PLEASE MAKE SURE TO STOP BY THE SHORE EXCURSION/DESTINATION DESK UPON ARRIVAL ( BEFORE 7PM) TO DOCUMENT YOUR WEIGHT. FAILURE TO PROVIDE WEIGHTS MAY RESULT IN FORFEITURE OF YOUR TOUR AND WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CHARGES.

    Spend hours relaxing at one of Maui's most beautiful beaches, Wailea Beach. With a short journey through the center of the Valley Isle, which offers you all the more time to enjoy the generous beach activities (not including pool & hot tub areas) and oceanfront views. You might stretch out on a Tommy Bahama® lounge chair and bask in the sun, stroll along the crescent-shaped coast without a care in the world and take a refreshing swim in the typically calm sea. The ocean bottom at Wailea drops off gently, encouraging those who wish to do nothing more than wade into the water while it gently laps the shore. The beach often ranks among the world’s best for its fine-grained sand and idyllic setting. If you are feeling more ambitious, kayaks, snorkeling gear, and stand-up paddleboards are available at special rates. You are also welcome to dine on your own in any of the resort restaurants.


    HIGHLIGHTS

    • While away the hours relaxing on the beach.
    • Do whatever you wish, even if it’s nothing more ambitious than simply stretching out in the sun.

    HELPFUL HINTS

    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
    • Bring a swimsuit, towel and sunscreen.

Explore a lush reef with colorful coral combinations found nowhere else in these islands and home to more than 250 species of fish.

    Check out Maui’s massive Haleakala volcano from bottom to top, as you journey from sea level to the summit to view spectacular island scenery and the immense crater of volcanic rock. You can catch a glimpse of Haleakala, Maui’s massive dormant volcano, from almost any point on the island, but you will go all the way to the top on this scenic journey – from sea level to 10,000 feet. At the summit is a vast crater seven and a half miles long by two and a half miles wide, and 3,000 feet deep. It last erupted in 1790 and has slumbered ever since, though that does not mean it won’t one day wake up. The Hawaiians revere it as a sacred site, and tell tales of Pele, Goddess of Fire and Volcanos.


    The views from the top are magnificent. If the day is clear, you may even make out two other towering peaks – Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea on the Big Island. From the crater’s rim, you'll be able to appreciate first hand the unique beauty of this imposing caldera with its interesting mix of volcanic rock and plant life, some of which, like the silversword plant, is found only in Hawaii's volcanic craters.

    The Hawaiians revere Haleakala as a sacred site, and tell tales of Pele, Goddess of Fire and Volcanos. At sunset you may think that Pele has awakened, as the clouds are on fire till dusk quenches the flames and slowly transforms the sky into a starry dome.
