What you'll do

PRIVATE TOUR 1-7 PASSENGER FOR SAME PRICE. Watching the Sunrise atop Haleakala Volcano is a rare, unique and for many, a spiritual experience... Depending on the time of year, Meetup Time is between 2-3 A.M. It will be dark on the way up, with no light pollution, our Hawaiian night sky is amazing!! As we arrive at the top, you will walk a short distance to the viewing area. It takes about an hour for the sun to rise. This hour is the most important time. Sunrise starts with a thin sliver of light, getting wider, until the sun comes up. It is during that first hour, that the light of the rising Sun, picks up the many varied colors and crystals of the basin floor. It is one of the main reasons Sunrise atop Haleakala is so popular. That and the Views are incredible at 10,000 ft.! On a clear morning, after sunrise, you will be able to see the Volcanoes sticking out of the clouds, over on the "Big Island", then turn and you will see Maui's shadow in the Ocean. With views of the Islands of Ka'hoolawe, Lana'i and maybe even Moloka'i-behind/over Mauna Kahalawai. It really is Spectacular. Tours are normally 5-6 Hours, depending on where we meet. Hungry? I am happy to stop for (no-host) snacks/breakfast at the Kula Marketplace on the way down the Volcano.

Aloha! I have lived on the Island of Maui since I was 15 years old, moving here with my family. I am an explorer at heart. I find all the fun hikes and waterfalls and then drag friends and family along. Professionally, I have spent the last 22 Years as a Resort Concierge' selling all the Fun Maui Tours and Activities, etc. The best part, we got to go on all the Tours/Activities for free, every year! I enjoyed many varied fabulous experiences over the years. After 22 years sitting in an office, I now find myself guiding Maui Tours instead of selling Tours. So much more Fun! I get to meet a lot of fun and different people, from all over the Globe. * I also have Commercial Auto Insurance.

There is a Bookstore that opens after sunrise, and Information/maps stands in various places.

More tips

I drive a very nice 2016 Honda Odyssey Mini-Van. For comfort, even though it is a 7 seater, I keep the passenger count at 6: 2 in the back, 3 in the middle, plus a "co-pilot" up front. If you are a party of 7, that is fine. It is normally Very Cold up on the Volcano. Dress Warmly. Bathrooms Open.
