Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

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.

Your motorcoach takes a circuitous road that meanders uphill for miles to Haleakala National Park's headquarters. 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.

Next, we'll head for Maui Ocean Center, past small farms and ranches, where you can see sharks, stingrays, sea turtles, a rainbow of tropical fish and much more. The exhibits include the Living Reef, a Marine Mammal Discovery Center, a Touch Pool and the Living Journey, where you can walk through a 54-foot underwater transparent tube surrounded by all matter of marine life, including sharks, the great hunters of the sea.

A sit-down lunch will be served. Enjoy a island-style lunch accompanied by a cold beverage, coffee or tea. Afterwards you'll have time to visit the gift shop, which offers a range of souvenirs including apparel, art, books, jewelry and Hawaiian crafts before we re-board the motorcoach for the return route back to the ship.

Special Notes:

Wear comfortable walking shoes and a sweater or jacket. Temperatures can drop dramatically at the crater. 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.
