The Basics

If you’re heading to the beaches of West Maui to surf or sunbathe, chances are you’ll pass through the chilled-out town of Lahaina. Take some time to relax here on the popular Kaanapali beach, where you can also swim or snorkel, or head to Lahaina harbor for snorkel tours and whale-watching expeditions.

You can also head to Napili Beach, which is known for its good surf, and sign up for surf lessons or watch the sunset on a sleek catamaran. In the evening, make your way to Lahaina’s Front Street’s restaurants, or attend a traditional Luau.

Fun for the riding experience

Maui Segway PT Guided Tours in Lahaina
Just the riding of the Segway is fun and worth the experience. I wish the tour guide would have been a little more knowledgeable about the history of Lahaina. He was really focused on the safety aspect and I guess that was his main role.

4-Hour Lanai Snorkel Dolphin Express Tour from Lahaina Harbor
We booked with a small operator hoping that we would be snorkeling separate from the big people crowded boats. The weather was bad so we didn’t get to Lanai (not their fault) but we ended up snorkeling where everyone else went. There was little to see as everything was scared. HOWEVER, we then went and watched the FIRST WHALE CALF OF THE SEASON, and went and watched the TURTLE CLEANING STATION. Great recovery! Sara was a great deck hand!!!

4-Hour Lanai Snorkel Dolphin Express Tour from Lahaina Harbor
Chris and especially Sarah were so kind and friendly. Sarah was awesome on making sure everyone was safe and comfortable going into the water. You will definitely see schools of dolphins! Even baby dolphins ❤ When snorkeling at the turtle cleaning zone you will come so close to the turtles. It is so breathtaking. This tour is a MUST 💯🤙🏻🤙🏻🤙🏻🐵🤙🏻🤙🏻

Lanai Snorkel and Dolphin Watch from Lahaina
Seeing the spinner dolphins on the way back to Lahaina. The snorkeling was good and the staff was very polite. They had life guards out in the water with you which made me feel safe especially with kids.

Maui Sunset Dinner and Dance Cruise from Lahaina Harbor
Entertainer was good but missed the sunset! The whole purpose we booked this was to see the sunset during the dinner cruise. Unfortunately, we were at the dock at sunset.

Visit the Iao Valley

Head inland from Lahaina, and you’ll find the Iao Valley State Monument. This area of dense forest and fast-running rivers is a popular destination for nature lovers, who come to catch a glimpse of Kuka‘emoku, a rocky, 1,200-foot-tall spire that towers over the forest. Lace up your boots, and hit the trails to see this natural wonder for yourself.
