$165 per Person (parties of 4-10), $250 per Person (parties of 2-3), $500 per Solo Guest (plus 4.167% Hawaii sales tax)

The West Maui Adventure is a 5-6 hour excusrions. The Morning Tour departs between 8am-9am and the Sunset Excursion departs at 1pm. Pick up is available at most resorts. Begin your journey by traveling on a road tourists rarely visit, and stop at a stream with waterfalls and pools. Next you will continue up a narrow road cut into the mountainside. There will be several lookouts with breathtaking views of rugged, steep, and exposed coastline. You will also visit a cliff top gallery that features more than 100 local artisans. Here you can fine art, jewelry, and home decor. Next, drive into the isolate and native Hawaiian village of Kahakuloa where you can taste their famous Banana Bread and and Lilikoi (passion fruit) butter. After departing the village, you will wind around to the remote bell stone fields. Massive lava bombs were spit out during Halemahina's last eruption, and they landed near the coast. Bell stones are hollow inside, and you can ring them by tapping them with a rock or stick. If you are up for an adventure, there is a crumbly trail down to the Olivine Tide Pools where you can observe marine life and dip into the salty heart-shaped basin.

Next on your journey is Nakalele Point. A lava shelf extends into the sea, and waves follow a pathway underneath forcing water through a small hole. This creates an "eruption" of water similar to a geyser or a whale's blow hole. Sprays can reach over 100 feet into the air, and it goes off 90% of the time. If the surf is high, you must keep your distance. If the waters are calm, you can take a trail to stand nearby and feel the natural ocean shower! Then you will stop at Honolua Bay to see Maui's healthiest reef from above. You may catch a glimpse of swimming turtles or frolicking dolphins! Take a flat jungle walk to the mouth of the bay, and taste honeysuckle and passion fruit along the way. After leaving Honloua, you will enter the land of resorts. Pass by Kapalua where golf championships are held every year, and Ka'anapali Beach resorts which was once an area reserved for royalty. You will have time to stroll through the old whaling port of Lahaina, which was once the capitol of the Kingdom of Hawaii. The old buildings that house shops, restaurants, and galleries were originally built to support whaling and trade. Your adventure ends with Hawaii's largest collection of ancient petroglyphs, which depict native way of life.

If you are traveling to Maui any time between December through May, whale watching is a must, and you will stop at several spots along the way to look out for humpbacks playing and jumping.

If you are staying at a West side hotel, then you can "exchange" your leisure time in Lahaina for exploration of ʻĪao Valley. You will visit the sunken caldera of Maui's western volcano and the ʻĪao needle (a natural basalt tower, gaze upon steep valley walls with waterfalls cascading down. ʻĪao valley has the largest streams on the island, which makes it the main source of fresh drinking water. Locals and visitors are often seen in the rivers and swimming holes, and the waters are known for its healing powers.
