Maui Sightseeing tours are a past time on Maui for visitors and locals alike. Hawaii is blessed with some of the most beautiful and unique natural features found anywhere in the world. Maui, in particular, is known for its massive waterfalls along the Road to Hana, its variety of large, beautiful beaches, and the 10,000-foot tall dormant shield volcano known as Haleakala. Booking one of our Maui Sightseeing Tours will give you a chance to witness some of these natural wonders with the added bonuses of comfort and education. The guides on these tours are all local people sharing local knowledge. Sightseeing tours departing Maui headed to other islands are also available, this includes trips to the National Historic Site at Pearl Harbor on Oahu and to the Big Island for a tour of the active volcanoes. Let someone else do the driving while you do the exploring of these beautiful and powerful places on one of these Maui Sightseeing Tours.
When it comes to scenic drives, Maui ranks on the list as one of the top places to see some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. When you look at Maui in comparison to other islands, this isn’t a large island. In fact, it only classifies as the 17th largest island in America, and you have cities like Juneau and Jacksonville that are larger than Maui. Even despite the modest size, Maui still has a rich blend of destinations to explore and moods to enjoy. Whether you want the verdant rainforests or the white sand shores, these Maui Sightseeing Tours have a little something for everyone.
#1: Road to Hana
Easily one of the best drives in Maui, the Road to Hana is a twisting and narrow road that puts you on a journey where you see roadside fruit stands, sea caves and waterfalls at every turn. However, the drive doesn’t end in Hana. This drive wraps around the island, and you will slip past Kaupo and Kipahulu. This is where you might see the crystalline Pools of Ohe’o, which flows gently back to the sea. The peaceful cattle roam about the fields. Beware that some rental car companies will say that a drive through here violates the contract, but this doesn’t mean driving through this lush oasis is forbidden. It only means that they won’t come to get you from here.
#2: The Northwestern Sea Coast of Maui
Another one of the important highlights has always been with driving around Maui on the northwestern coast. This destination has rugged shorelines, bluffs and coral bays to create the playground for the adventurer. The views just from the steering wheel make it reason enough to go for a well-deserved drive. However, remember to keep your eyes on the road at all times. If you see a picturesque landscape, stop and take photos this way.
#3: The Casual Upcountry of Maui
If you want a scenic view of the Hawaiian countryside, you may want to go to Upcountry in Keokea and over to Ulupalakua. This twisting jaunt has stunning green pastures that emerge at one of the only wineries in Maui. You will most likely hear the feed-filled tractors and the diesel engines of the semi-trucks rumbling along the highway. You will also see the pastel wagons that have the surfboards strapped onto the roof with adventurous cyclists who have chosen to strain their calves in a feat of great endurance.[caption id="attachment_15307" align="alignright" width="503"] Sunrise at 10,000ft on Maui[/caption]
Looking for the shortest road from sea level up to 10,000 feet? If so, you should consider a drive to Haleakala. This is the shortest road in the world that will go from sea level up to more than 10,000 feet, and the drive starts on the coastal Pa’ia among the hippies, yogis, and surfers. You finish it over the cloud where many of the geese roam.
The outdoor road trips you have with the family in Hawaii are truly one-of-a-kind, and they will prove both memorable and fun.
