Maui Shore Excursions


 

Read this sentence over and over and let it sink in. Ready???

ENJOY your cruise ship when you are on it ... GET AS FAR AWAY AS POSSIBLE FROM YOUR CRUISE SHIP when you aren't on it.

People who get off the ship and merely walk around at each port of call do not see Hawaii. PERIOD. The shore excursions that the cruise ships offer tend to be mass transit oriented tours that move at the slowest pace of the oldest person in your group of 70 people. Get away from that crowd and make the most of your time in the islands!

You will often find that shore excursions that the ships offer onboard are overpriced. The cruise ships often MARK UP the activities and tours well over the list price. This is typically done with the justification that the price includes transportation. It is not uncommon for a tour that we sell for $70 to cost $100 or more if purchased through your cruise line. Sometimes our $70 rate already includes transportation!  Other times that rate may require a 5 minute cab ride, and you still save $20 or so per person.

Below are our recommendations for tours that work well, especially for guests who are arriving on NCL's Pride of America. Because this ship spends the night on Maui, NCL cruisers are able to do many of the tours that are found on our website.
