Maui Activities and Attractions
As the second largest island in the Hawaiian island chain, Maui offers a wide variety of fun things to do. Some of the Maui activities you can do are unique to this island. Where else can you bike down one of the largest dormant volcanoes in the world? Maui’s Mt. Haleakala rises 10,023 feet above sea level. Join a guided bicycle excursion for a unique once-in-a-lifetime experience. Best of all, this tour is all downhill.Another Maui activity that’s great for adventure seekers is ziplining. Zip through eucalyptus forests and lush surroundings – a unique way to see the island – including tingles in your stomach! If you love the ocean there are all kinds of Maui activities in the waters surrounding the island. An activity that’s unique to Maui is a snorkeling or diving excursion to the tiny island of Molokini, located about 2.5 miles offshore. It is considered a prime scuba diving location with excellent visibility – often as deep as 150 feet and more. In case you would like to see marine life up close without having to get wet, no problem. Discover Maui’s fascinating coral gardens and marine life on board a submarine or glass bottom boat.

Maui Island Activities
Other Maui activities that are fun for everyone are deep sea fishing trips. Ever wanted to enjoy the thrill of reeling in a huge Pacific Blue Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna or Wahoo? Come aboard one of the fishing charters that depart from Maui’s Ma'alaea or Lahaina Harbor. If you are on Maui in winter, between November and March, another fun activity that’s great for the entire family is whale watching. Maui is the best island in Hawaii for a whale watching cruise. The shallow waters between Maui and Lanai are the whales’ preferred breeding ground. If you are on Maui in the summer, you can enjoy dolphin watching instead.
Talking about shoreline cruises, Maui is also a great destination for sunset sailing and dinner cruises. On no other island can you enjoy a shoreline cruise and see the shores of three other Hawaiian islands in the same time – Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe.
Popular land-based Maui activities are hiking and horseback riding. Hike through a lush rainforest or pick one of the trails at Haleakala National Park and enjoy breathtaking views of the surroundings, which are truly otherworldly – the volcanic craters and cinder cones will almost make you feel like you’re walking on the moon. Or how about a ride on an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) or segway? That’s a great alternative if you just want to cruise around and do some sightseeing without walking much.
Other popular land-based activities on Maui are golfing (the island is home to several championship golf courses) and wild pig hunting.
