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.

Even though we did not get a sunrise the crater view was good. It is extremely cold dress in layers with warm sweatshirt and warm jacket. Bring blankets for extra coverage. Guide provided excellent information and coverage of region. Would recommend taking tour early on in your trip.

I didn’t feel like the trip was worth the amount that I paid. The employees were very kind. We arrived to the park Very early & nobody was interested in star gazing. We were instructed to head back to the van soon after the sun rose vs getting to watch it fully come up & the colors reflect off of the clouds. The van blew cold air vs heat. The breakfast was at a pretty place but food & service were mediocre at best.

The scenery was phenomenal. The first break and sunrise were breathtaking. The guide Sam was so cool and accommodating and informative. You could tell he was proud of his island. Tour was a 10 out of 10. Loved all of it. I will go every time I’m in Maui.

Our tour guide Wayne, was really great! Great information and history along the way. Haleakala is a must see when you visit Maui. We are lucky that the sky was clear and got a great view of the sunrise. Kids loved it. We all enjoyed star gazing while waiting for the sunrise. It was freezing cold so dress warm (layered clothes and bring blanket if you can). Breakfast was ok but the place was beautiful. Highly recommended.

The staff at Polynesian Adventures was fabulous and the tour guide, Preston, was very good; however, I would never take this tour again. Weather and frigid temperatures made it a complete bust.

Not worth the cost.
Liza_R
, Jan 2021
Not worth the money. Bus was not socially distanced and we were asked to swap buses multiple times which means we were exposed to even more people at close proximity. Our driver was difficult to understand and lacked enthusiasm. Top of the mountain was windy and rainy that day so we didn’t get to see the sunrise and we’re drenched. Would’ve been nice if they had offered ponchos or towls. Breakfast tasted good but Space with limited so we had to share tables with other guests. Also the overall trip took so much longer as a group.
