Tips on Maui Tours and Things to do in Maui

Mar 16, 2008
Planning a vacation to Hawaii? Planning a journey to Maui? Obviously, there must be so much you do not know, if you have never come to the tropical paradise. First you have to know your history, so here is a quick history lesson and then a couple of ideas a tourist might want to consider doing before leaving.

The state was admitted to the Union on August 21, 1959, making it the 50th state. The most recent census puts the state's population at 1,211,53. Its capital is located in its major city, Honolulu on the island of Oahu. We aren't discussing Oahu, and frankly this all typically a tourist will know of Hawaiian history, so onto Maui vacation planning.

Imagine your sitting in your beautiful Maui vacation rental sitting on Wailea Beach and your bored? Perhaps, we can discuss the various tours a tourist can embark on. There is so much beauty to see and such little time on a vacation. There are literally hundreds of Maui activities to choose from, so if you are a little overwhelmed, check out our air, land and sea activity.

Helicopter Tours in Maui:

Possibly, if you are the zealous traveler, you want to see everything as quickly as possible. Keep in mind, the highlights of both East and West Maui are equally jaw dropping. Helicopter tours tend to gratify the zealous traveler. Maui helicopter tours are united by conducting unique aerial trips of the complete island of Maui.

Head south to Haleakala, where you will get amazing views of the Haleakala crater, Molokini and Kaho'olawe. Visit the heights of Haleakala, exploring the moon-like terrains of this dormant volcano. Fly over Honokahau valley and the Northern end of Maui.

Flying above remote areas of Maui, you will see sights that there are no other ways to see. Air Maui Offers discounted Maui helicopter tours. ALEXAIR Helicopter Tours and Sunshine Helicopters, also can take you sightseeing on aerial tours of Maui. Bring your camera to capture all the highlights of your Maui helicopter tour.

Snorkeling in Maui:

Absolutely the best deal you might find on the Island is a two stop morning Molokini Maui snorkeling tour. The Frogman is a fifty five foot power catamaran that will get you to Molokini quickly for some of the best snorkeling Maui has to offer.

Limo-Van Tours:

If you like party vans then perhaps a Limo tour is what you want to use to explore the remote and see the uncommonly beautiful a places during your Maui vacation. Leave that Wailea condo and appreciate the value of time to fit more excitement and variety into each vacation day. 6-8 guests per Limo-Van, you will share your adventure with others as you explore the Hana coast for a hands-on tropical exploration.

During any limo van tour you can have a picnic on the exotic beaches of Hawaii or a meal at the Paia plantation. The advantage of the limo bus tours is you are able to see the beauty up close but not all of the Island.

Hiking Tours in Maui:

If you are a hiker or enjoy exploration and moving at a slower pace then explore the incredible Ka'eleku Cavern, One of Maui's Greatest Natural Wonders! Walk through cool underground passages to view the colorful beauty and amazing formations of an ancient volcano, lava stalactites, stalagmites everywhere. Most of the cave is easy walking. There is no paved walkway throughout. You'll have to duck down in a couple of spots & any crawling is optional for those wearing long pants.

If you want a hiking adventure the check out the "WILD Adventure" Cave Tour. No children on this tour (must be 15 years or older). Physically athletic only! You've got to crawl through a couple of tight spots and climb a ladder on this tour, but that's just part of the fun.

Maui Vacation Activity for Kids:

In case you have smaller ones and want to make your Maui vacation tour fun. Then relax in an open-air coach whose nostalgic charm recalls the days of old Hawaii. Best known as the Sugar Cane Train, it adds a relaxing old fashion vibe to the Island getaway time.

Maui Horse Tours:

Speaking of old fashioned, travel around the island on Horseback riding tours. The horse tours actually offer some of the best panoramic views of Maui - from dramatic sea cliffs to rolling, lush green pastures. These tours aren't just "trail rides", you can actually ride the horse, which is a lot of fun!

Most tours offer beverages and snacks and some offer full lunches. Now it's time to start planning while on the mainland otherwise you might get stuck in that Maui luxury vacation rental --worst case scenario you would have to hang out on the southern coast of Maui all day.
