Mountain Biking Down The Volcano
View a spectacular sunrise from the summit of the 10,025' Haleakala crater, then coast 38 miles back to sea level on one of our exhilarating bike tours. Photo opportunities are abundant as you wind through several climate zones and take in the panoramic views of Maui. Depending on the tour and departure time, breakfast or lunch will be served and all trips include gear, escort vans and round-trip transportation.
Experience the crystal clear waters and abundant marine life on one of the many snorkeling tours available on Maui. Destinations include Coral Gardens, Turtle Town and Molokini Crater to name a few. Molokini Crater is a crescent-shaped volcanic island just off the west coast of Maui, that is one of the top dive sites in the world. Many of the trips include meals, beverages and all equipment. Depending on the season, whale and dolphin sightings can be quite common.
Scuba diving in Hawaii can be an exciting, wonderful experience. In Maui County, which includes the Islands of Maui, Lanai, and Molokai, the tiny crescent shaped volcanic island just off Maui's west coast, the diving is plentiful with a lot of variety. Just like anywhere else the local conditions will vary. Generally there is better visibility on boat dives rather than shore dives. However, with shore dives there is more variety. Most (but not all) of the dive boats go to specific areas, sort of a ''known quantity'' for diving. Some of the smaller operations will try to make the experience more memorable, often by being more flexible as to where to dive.
Test your fishing skills with big game deep sea fishing aboard Coast Guard licensed vessels. With years of experience, your captain will take you to the north shore of Molokai or ''backside'' of Lanai to fish for Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Spearfish, Tuna, Ono (Wahoo), Mahi Mahi and Shark. All equipment is included and charters can be private or shared.
