One of the reasons Maui attracts so many repeat visitors is that Maui has more than a handful of awesome things to do. With so many things to do on Maui, it can be challenging narrowing them down to just a few. Luckily, having been on the island for over 9 years and having done a wide variety of the available options, I can help narrow down that list. The Hawaiian Islands are surrounded by some of the most beautiful reefs and ocean features in the world. Molokini Crater is one of the most unique snorkeling destinations you’ll ever come across and its a must do for anyone who loves the water. Most people think a luau is the most important activity to experience, while they are great, I would recommend a dinner cruise instead. And for those looking for some excitement, Piiholo Ranch Zipline in Makawao is a family favorite.  

Local tip: Be prepared when you go for a beach day. Make sure you bring sun protection in the form of an umbrella, rash guard, or sunscreen. Bring comfortable chairs, extra towels, and most importantly a waterproof speaker because whats the beach without some music! Grab some snorkel gear and explore the reefs or bring a frisbee and work on your throws. 



Snorkel Molokini Crater

Several companies offer this tour. Having worked with the folks at Calypso and Pacific Whale Foundation over the years I would certainly recommend these two companies. Plan ahead a book early because both sell out regularly, especially in the summer. 

Skip the Luau, Book a Dinner Cruise

Dinner cruises on Maui are spectacular. Watching a perfect island sunset while enjoying a delicious meal is an immense pleasure and a great way to spend time with friends or family. Some of the boats offer live music, the Calypso even offers lobster as an option. The Alii Nui Royal Feast Dinner Sail caters the those looking for a luxurious, chef prepared menu and is worth every penny!

Piiholo Ranch Zipline 

All ziplines are not alike. This zip line in Makawao combines parasail style harnesses for comfort with extremely long side by side ziplines overlooking some of Maui’s most beautiful tropical rain forest. For more information or to make a reservation, you can visit Maui Tickets for Less.
