Greet the morning in a dramatic and unforgettable way...see the sunrise over Haleakala Volcano Crater! Experience firsthand this famous, must-do excursion. Well worth the early morning wake-up!

Departing your Kahului cruise port in the wee hours, you will drive to Haleakala National Park, approximately 60 minutes away. Your Maui Haleakala sunrise shore excursion guide will keep talking to a minimum for those needing a few more minutes of shuteye. You will have a stop for a Continental Breakfast before heading up to the summit - fresh fruit, assorted pastries and beverages. After clearing park security, it is another 45 minutes to reach the Red Hill, Pu'u Ula Ula, at the summit of Haleakala.

At 10,023 feet (3055 meters) elevation, you are above the clouds with an angel's view of the horizon. Soon, there is a gradual move from dark of night to lighter shades of blue in the sky to the east. This leads up to an explosion of color as the sun makes its entrance above the clouds. In addition to the ever-changing colors in the sky, you are also treated to the multi-colored Haleakala volcano and crater terrain as well as, cloud cover permitting, views of the Big Island of Hawaii, Lanai, Molokai and beyond in the distance. It is breath-taking and full of photo ops so do not forget your camera.

From here, descend to the House of the Sun visitor's center, located on the rim of the Haleakala Crater, for a photo stop. As the sun rises further into the sky, the multi-colored lava landscape changes colors. During your drive back to the park gate, your guide will share information and history of the island and the native Hawaiian people and their culture.

You will also enjoy an all you want Breakfast Buffet that is included - hot, fresh and tasty! Enjoy choices such as french toast, scrambled eggs, hash browns, Portuguese sausage, port sausage patties, hot oatmeal, fresh fruit, yogurt, and beverages. Vegetarian and Gluten Free options available as well upon request. In Maui's Upcountry, a scenic drive through the fertile agricultural region of Upcountry Maui takes you back to your Kahului Maui cruise pier, approximately one hour drive away.

This Kahului Maui Haleakala Volcano Crater Sunrise Cruise Shore Excursion is a great way to discover Maui and the Haleakala National Park, escaping the crowds!

I took this tour with my friends and, although it was very difficult to wake up at 2 am, it was worth every second. The ride up the volcano is so exciting so we didn't feel sleepy at all. And the staff had snacks and coffee for us to wake up! It is so hard to describe the show Mother Nature gave us. The colors of the sky are right out of a box of crayons and there is a lot of picture opportunities to try and capture it all. Thanks to shore excursioneer and staff for an unforgettable time.

When I booked this excursion it was the photos that really hooked me, but being there is another level experience. We had to wake up super early to be on time for the pick-up but once on the transportation, we could sleep for a while. But you do not want to nap too long. Once you get to the volcano base, the show starts. The guides have this timed perfectly. We got to the top and the slivers of sun lit up the sky. Very surreal.
