    Gain an understanding of the epic Polynesian migration to the Hawaiian Islands in canoes centuries ago and then paddle around the historic harbor in one of these iconic outrigger canoes.


    After a short walk to the Canoe Club, you will settle in under a traditional thatched hale and learn about the volcanic formation of the Hawaiian Islands and how the Polynesians migrated here. Incredibly, they paddled thousands of miles across the Pacific Ocean in open canoes about 600 years before the Europeans began to sail across the oceans.


    Their journey is an epic tale of perseverance and discovery, and to more fully understand it you will hear about the Polynesians’ navigation techniques based on star compasses and ocean currents. You will also hear about the founding of the venerable Canoe Club.


    Afterwards, you will ease into a double-hulled outrigger canoe and paddle into the harbor.


    You might be surprised by the stability of the canoe and how easy it is to paddle, especially in the sheltered waters of the harbor.


    Along the way, an expert paddler from the club will offer instruction and a glimpse into the island’s history. You will see where King Kamehameha I landed his war canoes in 1790 in his successful quest to unify the Hawaiian Islands.


    You will also enjoy a spectacular view of the dormant Haleakala volcano and the majestic Maui Mountains and a get close-up look at how the harbor was altered long ago to accommodate the transport of sugar by rail.

    Cruise through the National Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary in a Zodiac, a vessel that is ideal for speedy maneuvering and up-close viewing of marine creatures.


    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a scenic ride across the neck of Maui to lovely Maalaea Bay on the island’s southern shore. Here, you’ll board a Zodiac vessel that can navigate into areas other vessels can’t, offering you a close-up view of the marine life.


    You will be cruising into the National Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary. It is one of the favorite mating and birthing grounds for humpbacks because of the water’s ideal temperature and depth and the scarcity of killer whales, which are the young humpbacks’ most feared natural predators.


    As you zip through the water, you can expect to see humpback whales putting on a spectacular show of breaching the surface, tail and fin slapping, and spy hopping, where only the whale’s head pops out of the water. The males are known for their singing as part of the mating ritual. Humpback whales come to Maalaea Bay each year to breed after a month or so of migrating from their feeding grounds in Alaska, nearly 3,500 miles away.


    To enhance the whale-watching experience, a naturalist will be onboard explaining the whales’ behavior during this time of the year. Feel free to ask questions during the two hours or so spent on the water, after which you will return to Kahului.

    Spend the day in paradise hiking with Hawaii's "Eco Tour Company of the Year” through the lush rainforest along streams punctuated by waterfalls from 10 to 40 feet high, each spilling into a large pool perfect for swimming or toe dipping. It’s unusual for a Hawaiian valley to have this many cascades so close together, making this a very desirable spot along Maui’s famous Hana Highway.


    This hiking company is well known for their knowledgeable, naturalist guides, who provide a fascinating narrative on Hawaii's unique ecosystems. The hike is two miles round-trip and footing can be tricky in the forest.
