Start your day in Maui with a breathtaking sunrise view of the island from atop its highest peak on this daybreak excursion to Mount Haleakala. This exceptional sunrise experience is sure to be a highlight of your trip to Maui.

Start your trip in the dark of the very early morning with a pickup at your Maui hotel. You’ll then continue by air-conditioned minibus on a scenic drive passing the Kula District. and Maui’s rare silversword plants.

Arriving at the Haleakala National Park, steadily climb by minibus up Haleakala to 9,740 feet elevation to the Visitor Center. You’ll see Maui’s rare and endemic silversword plants that poignantly bloom once, then perish. You’ll also witness the sunrise from the Visitor Center area. The views from Haleakala are nothing short of spectacular. Writer Mark Twain, upon visiting the peak in 1866, wrote that the volcano was “the most sublime spectacle I ever witnessed and the memory of it will remain with me always.”

Observe the first rays of the new day slowly creep across the distant horizon. Soon the sky fills with the majestic glow of the new day, and the warm beams of light creep across the island of Maui, illuminating the land below. It’s a sight you’re sure to remember for many years to come.

At the end of your morning sunrise experience you’ll head to breakfast at a local restaurant and then receive a drop-off back at your Maui hotel, tired but thrilled by your amazing morning trip.

Totally worth getting up...

Totally worth getting up super early for. Watching the sun come up over the clouds is so beautiful! It’s really something to see at least once, if not more. And our tour guide Preston was awesome.

This was a great experience!! Be sure and bring warm clothes. Our guide, Al, made this trip incredibly fun, and told us a lot of the island history. This is a must do!!
Wonderful trip to see the sunrise

Preston is an amazing guide/driver. He has lived in Maui for 30 years and has wonderful stories and local knowledge. He goes out of his way to plan an excellent experience and I highly recommend his tour to Haleakala.
A once in a lifetime experience.

Aside, from it being cold, the view was amazing. The sun never looked like that to me before-breath taking. I would do it again. The tour bus drivers lucky they get to see that every single day.
A few notes to pass on…
, Dec 2021
Hello and thanks for reading my hints on totally enjoying this event. All positive and here are a few pieces for your consideration: 1/ Dress very warm, repeat very warm. Cover your ears. 2/ Not too worry, there are bathrooms at the summit. 3/ Be ready to produce your vaccination records to your tour guide and your hostess at the restaurant. They will ask to see them. 4/ If you are fortunate to have Preston as your guide LISTEN TO EVERYTHiNG HE HAS TO SAY. He is saying it for a reason which is for you to have a once in a life-time experience. Listen carefully for when he talks about where you might want to position yourself at the observation platform. He knows where. 5/ People will try to ooze in front of you and shall we say diminish the spot that you have been standing in for over an hour. Enough said on that one. Do it with a smile. 6/ Make sure your camera is charged and ready to go. 7/ It doesn’t get any better than this especially when the weather co-operates. If you have sun-glasses, bring them. In terms of a 10 star rating for Preston I give him a 12. Vince
Cloudy weather, clear mind
, Dec 2021
Unfortunately the peak was raining and clouded over at 40 degrees so we didnt get to see much. That being said, our tour guide was great and really made the most of it, telling us stories and telling us about the island. Also the breakfast provided was delicious and the bus was really comfortable and spacious, and pickup was timely
