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 through the island, passing the Kula District, Puu Ulaula Overlook and Maui’s rare silversword plants.

Continue with a steady climb by minibus up Haleakala, rising more than 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) above sea level. The views from up above 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.”

Arrive at the summit and settle in as you 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 receive a drop-off back at your Maui hotel, tired but thrilled by your amazing morning trip.

Go on your own - not worth the tour
Sarah_M
, Mar 2020
Our driver was nice and very knowledgeable, but he talked the ENTIRE time. I think I can speak for our entire group when I say that we don't need 7+ hours of talking starting at 2:30am!!! It would have been nice if he passed out headphones or something for the people who wanted Hawaii's life story at 2:30am and then the people that wanted to sleep on the drive to Haleakala could. Overall, this is a very neat experience but not something you need an organized tour for. The tour is very overpriced. You can very easily (and more affordably) rent your own car and drive up for sunrise. Worth experiencing but not through this tour in my opinion!

Our tour guide was amazing! She is the only female tour guide on the mountain. She made sure we understood the reverence required and shared invaluable knowledge about the history of Hawaii, the culture, people and the language. We are coming back to Maui in a few years and we can’t wait to have this experience again.

Because no one came to pick us up at the appointed time and place. So they rescheduled us for the next early morning: 2:55AM at the appointed place. THIS time, there was a Polynesian Adventures bus there, but my family of 5 was not on his list, SO AGAIN WE DID NOT GET TO SEE THE SUNRISE!!!!!! I've used Viator many, many times and have NEVER had any trouble, but they shouldn't use Polynesian Adventures anymore......they are a scatterbrained, lying company. WANT my refund!!!!!!!!!!

The tour pick up and drop off were great; reliable and on time. We had a gorgeous sunrise and this is a must do when visiting Maui. I have used the same tour guide on all my six trips to Maui. My only complaint is the breakfast included in the tour is not the best. The food was cold and this is not the first time for me at the same location. Other than that Is an excellent tour.
