$181.10 BOOK NOW
The magic of Haleakala continues after sunrise. There are many amazing things to see at the summit of Haleakala besides the sunrise. This is known due to the high number of visitors that enter the park every day. Throughout the day, Haleakala plays host to an array of Maui activities from hiking, bike tours and informational tours conducted by the National Park. But the best is still to come. As the day winds down the breeze stiffens with the sun edging towards to west, sunset creeps up the mountain and this Polynesian Adventure Tours Sunset Tour will take you there to witness this spectacle. The large telescopes strewn across the summit begin to focus on the heavens as darkness begins to shade the vast expanse of Haleakala Crater. Then suddenly a flash streaks across the sky. The green flash is only seen on Haleakala as the sun dips beneath the horizon line. In an instant, it flashes along the horizon, a faded bolt of ghost green. Then it’s gone. Few will ever witness this magic. This Polynesian Adventure Tours Sunset Tour will pick you up at your hotel, condo, or resort and deliver you to the house of the sun for sunset and tour, once the sunset has faded you’ll go to Cafe O’Lei in Kahului for a three-course meal and eventually you will be brought back to your resort.
After years of exploring opportunities to expand its presence on Haleakala, Polynesian Adventure Tour began experimenting with a Haleakala Sunset Tour.
The ride up the Haleakala Highway is much quicker in the afternoon as most visitors and tour companies are already done for the day. The only remaining people in the rater are those that have heard whispers of this amazing gift from mother nature. They drive up on their own, pay the entry fee and sit and wait. In all reality, they don’t know where or when to look for the green flash. Most of the time they miss it. But, you, on the other hand, have a tour guide that will bring the moment into focus. You won’t miss it.
Polynesian Adventure Tours Sunset Tour is different than any other tour on Maui. Now, it’s one of the most popular sightseeing activities on Maui. If you’re not an early morning person and let’s face it, most of us aren’t, then this Maui sightseeing tour is perfect. With a mid-afternoon pick-up at your resort, you can enjoy the beach in the late morning and early afternoon, then head up to the summit of Haleakala with Polynesian Adventure Tours to experience Sunset on Haleakala.
The guides on the Polynesian Adventure Tours Sunset Tour are born, raised and live in Upcountry Maui. They grew up with the history of Haleakala, they know it best and will share the myth, the legends and the facts of Haleakala Crater, House of the Sun. Cameras do not really capture the moment. Your smartphone also has a video recorder installed on it. The best way to bring this awesome moment home is by recording a video of the action. With this method, you will record the moments before, during and after. That’s a memory!

The Road to Hana Van Tour was a very well-planned trip around the circumference of the base of Haleakala. Our driver, Larry, was an experienced knowledgeable guide. He shared with his 12 passengers the local flora, the volcanic landscape, the history of the area, legends, and wildlife. This full-day tour allowed time for bathroom breaks, photo opportunities, and lunch. Some of the stops included included historic villages, waterfalls, black-sand beaches. We ate lunch in Hana that was deliciously prepared by locals. The food was all locally grown and fresh.
If you have time in your itinerary for a full day tour, you should definitely consider this beautiful trip. Having a skilled driver is a comfortable and safe way to travel an extremely narrow and curvy road that skirts some of America’s most beautiful coastline!
Great experience, going to see the sun rise on Haleakala! On time, smooth operation. We had a wonderfully clear day at the top, although it was cold and windy ... so better to bring more than less for warmth, including warm hats and gloves. 'Netty', our guide, driver and mentor in important things Hawaiian, was excellent. She was, by turns: fun, funny, safety minded, and informative ... but always open, energetic and a joy to be around.
We can’t say enough how beautiful this was! Netti was wonderful!! Calling Netti a tour guide doesn’t do her justice. She is such a caring person and puts her passengers first. She’s funny and you feel her friendship from the moment you meet her. Moreover she is an inspirational person. She speaks from her heart and you can feel her positive look at life. She inspires us to take our own look at life, our souls and being a helpful caring person; as she truly is. We can’t say enough amazing things about her.

We had the best day with Polynesian tour guide Cammie. She was delightful. We were picked up exactly in time at our hotel and the rest of the day fun filled stops along the Road to Hana. She was funny Expert driver and made us all so relaxed. She had high level of local culture. We would have never found that information on our own. Great breakfast and lunch included also organized well.
Well worth the money. The bus was very clean and comfortable but most of all I think the driver, Preston made the tour memorable. Very knowledgeable, kind and funny. I was completely at ease with his ability to drive the road safely. Thanks to him I give extra points to this tour..
