Looking for activities that are fun and adventurous for a family comprising of a senior, two adults early forties, and a pre-teen boy. Not looking for long hikes but want to see waterfalls and other parts of the island. Want to see island from local point of view.
I highly recommend a Doors Off Helicopters on Maui, i recommend West Maui & Molokai flight with AlexAir.com Maui Helicopter Tours, this really puts you in the waterfall when you can taste and feel the waterfall mist in your face :), best thing to do on your first day to get a true aerial orientation of the Valley Isle of Maui... about 8 years agoAnswered by Benjamin Barreras via Travellr.com
I should add that we have seen Iao needle, Maui tropical plantation and spent the day shopping in Lahaina on a previous cruise trip to the Hawaiian islands. We have decided on spending our full trip this time on Maui and are looking for additional activities that may require more time or that we may have missed due to the cruise time limit. about 8 years ago
You can try the ziplining companies - they are a really fun way to spend the day. Also if you can, do a Molokini snorkel trip. Try to go in the morning as the weather gets a bit rough in the afternoon and they have to divert elsewhere. You can start the trip from Lahaina or Kihei.
Dive to Makena/Big beach - it's on the south side of the island past Wailea.
Enjoy! MAui is such a great place! about 8 years ago
