Approx. 7 hours
Your journey begins at the pier where you'll board your air-conditioned motorcoach. From Lahaina, we'll travel up country on a scenic drive, passing sugar cane fields, pineapple plantations and panoramic views of the island for Haleakala National Park Headquaters. Re-board the motorcoach and continue on a circuitous road that meanders uphill for miles until reaching Haleakala National Park. Explore the visitor's center and gift shop before we travel to the crater's rim.
Last erupting in 1790, the volcano's massive crater is over seven-miles long and three-miles wide. The crater floor is located 3,000 feet below the rim and dotted with plant life and cinder cones. Enjoy the breathtaking view from the crater's rim. After seeing Haleakala at sunrise, Mark Twain was moved to write: "It was the sublimest spectacle I ever witnessed."
Enjoy an sandwich or salad lunch before we re-board the motorcoach for the return route back to the ship.
Wear comfortable walking shoes and a sweater or jacket. Temperatures can drop dramatically at the summit. Due to climatic changes, views may become hindered or blocked by clouds or fog at any given time.
Passengers with heart conditions should note that the altitude of Haleakala Crater is approximately 10,000 feet above sea level. Consult your physician prior to the cruise should you have doubts about your ability to participate.
