Enjoy an enlightening and delightful tour through northeastern Maui, experiencing attractions as diverse as a Hawaiiana-themed art studio and shop; a gallery showcasing the island’s most acclaimed collection of works by Hawaii artists, artisans, and jewelers, including an extensive collection of exquisite Ni’ihau shell jewelry; a majestic cascading waterfall in the rainforest; and a premier windsurfing beach overlook. After departing the pier, you’ll take in the highlights of the island’s spectacular north shore, beginning with Makawao town, where you can still see remnants of this historic hamlet’s paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) storied past. Today, Makawao is known more as a thriving arts community. You’ll visit a local gallery displaying a wide array of works by Hawai’i’s most renowned artists, and the studio and shop of one of Maui’s foremost artisans. Enjoy a relaxing, sit-down lunch at a charming café before heading to Ho’olawa Valley, where Maui’s artists often visit for inspiration. You’ll soon understand why when you take a guided nature walk with a leading naturalist. Your destination is an idyllic waterfall overlook in the rainforest. Along the way you’ll learn about the valley’s indigenous flora and fauna. To complement the experience, you’ll enjoy a sampling of fruits and vegetables important in native Hawaiian culture. The last stop is the lovely Ho’okipa scenic lookout, where some of the best waves in Hawai‘i, and frequently green Hawaiian sea turtles (honu), are found. While pausing for photos, you can expect to see surfers riding the waves.
