Some people say that sunrise at Haleakala is an experience of a lifetime and with Polynesian Adventure Tours that experience is guaranteed to be comfortable and fun. Your morning begins with a hotel pick-up by a friendly driver in a spacious, comfortable van. You’ll be taken up the volcano before the start of the sunset to get the perfect position to watch and take pictures. You will hear the whispers of the wind, see the first faint rays of the morning sun as it edges ever more closely to sunrise. The clouds below turn like dyed sheets to a rainbow of colors from orange, red, gray and purple as the morning wakens in all its glory. That is sunrise on the Summit of Haleakala.

The vast expanse of windblown rock in Haleakala Crater is broken only by the towering cinder cones that reach for the sky. The entire crater floor is volcanic rock. Sliding Sands Trail, ever shifting with the breeze that has battered its rock for countless centuries into fine sand. Its gray, red and brown tones belong in another world, but they are here on earth hidden at the top of the world.

Your tour guide will share the history of Haleakala. Its history is rich in culture, scared to all Hawaiians, a place of worship, beauty, and know as the house of the sun.

Haleakala is the tallest free-standing mountain on earth. It rises above the enormous height of Mt. Everest a half a world away. Haleakala reaches over 30,000 feet above the sea floor towering into the heavens above. It’s no wonder that Hawaiian lore speaks of the demigod Maui lassoing the sun from its summit to bring eternal warmth to the Valley Isle.

The summit of Haleakala is the only place on earth that the silversword plant grows. It spikes out of the rocks like a sword, then blooms once every seven years.

Haleakala National Park is the most visited attraction on Maui. Sunrise is the busiest. Parking is limited and with the new restrictions on the number of vehicles allowed into the park at sunrise, there is no better way to witness sunrise than with a Maui tour group. The entrance has also doubled. That is another good reason to schedule your sunrise tour of Haleakala with Polynesian Adventure Tours. The admission is included. And you don’t have to spend the time looking for that open parking stall.

Mark Twain visited Haleakala. He said it was an experience he would never forget so majestic was the sunrise and wonders of the crater. When Mark Twain visited the park, he had to ride a horse, it took days. Now you can see the sunrise and be back before noon. Just in time to hit the beach!

I remember the first time I ever visited the summit of Haleakala for sunrise. It must have been in 1976. It was a long drive on a road that was dark and steep. The sunrise was priceless, the photos to last a lifetime, but I lost my camera and only have the memories of that first adventure to Haleakala.

Tip of the Day:
Dress warmly! It is strongly recommended that you dress in layers, or at least bring a warm coat. A hoodie would be perfect. You can remove the heavier clothing on the way down the mountain.

Meals:
A hot sit-down breakfast is served at Dunes of Lani after sunrise. Polynesian Adventure Tours offer the best breakfast out of tour company in Maui

Carnival Cruise Lines seem to have an agreement with Polynesian Adventure Tours as this was the bus / transportation services we used during our entire trip.

The buses were clean, comfortable, the drivers / tour guides very professional, knowledgeable and kind.

The stories, legends and information shared was delightful and we enjoyed every one of our excursions.

Highly recommend!

We did the Haleakala sunrise tour and it was great! Our tour guide was amazing and I wish I could remember her name to give her more credit. She was funny and very knowledgeable of the islands. It was a quiet ride up which was awesome since it was so early that we dozed off. The sites and views up there and on the stops back down were breathtaking. There was a local man up on top who sang a chant when the sun came up. :)

Just make sure you dress very warm because it was much colder up at the top of the mountain than we planned for. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because I wish the breakfast was a little better. You had one of three options, one glass of juice and one slice of toast. With what we paid, you’d think it would be a little nicer.

Netti, our driver and tour guide, was EXCELLENT! Her knowledge and wit will make your experience an unforgettable one. She is funny and quick on her feet, so be ready to laugh and have a great time. Our visit to Haleakala to see the sunrise is by far the best adventure we have had in any of the islands. Mahalo!

Had a really nice day with Gavin on the Road to Hana. He had lots of lovely stories to tell us about his family and the island that made us feel like part of the family. He showed us the best banana bread on the island which was delicious! When things got rough on the road he was very calm and helping other drivers on the road making sure everyone was having a safe day. We were treated to a lovely healthy fresh lunch and one of the other tour guides delighted us with a mini concert on his ukulele. The bus itself was very modern and comfortable with air conditioning. Overall a very enjoyable experience and very glad we chose to do this tour rather than a hire car. Gavin was a great tour guide with obvious love for his job.

Took the sunset Haleakalā tour. Tour bus drivers and drive up and back were fine however the dinner at Cafe O’lei was awful and the service and staff were even worse. One of group had a hair in their food and food was barely warm. Not worth the price paid.
