Haleakala Maui Sunrise Tour with Breakfast

Watch the sunrise atop the 10,000-foot (3,050-meter) summit of Mount Haleakala, Maui’s highest dormant volcano, without worrying about transportation or breakfast. Travel the winding roads through the clouds via comfortable vehicle accompanied by a guide to see the colorful sunrise. The up to 8-hour excursion includes entrance fees, continental breakfast, and roundtrip transportation from Maui hotels.

What to Expect

Your Haleakala Maui sunrise tour begins in the middle of the night when a minibus arrives to pick you up at your Maui hotel. Along the scenic, climbing drive to the summit you pass Kula District and Puu Ulaula Overlook. Ascend the 10,000-foot (3,050-meter) summit of Mount Haleakala, a dormant volcano.

At the top, get off your minibus and take your place on Maui’s highest peak as daylight illuminates the horizon and lights the landscape below. Watch as the sunlight streaks the sky with vibrant colours until the sun sits high above the horizon. A continental breakfast is included in the experience.

Then, board the minibus and return to your Maui hotel.

Beware of late arrival

This is an experience that would have been much better with a different tour company. We spend a good hour waiting for others during our trip up the mountain. We arrived after the sky was already lite and a large crowd had already formed. I...More

Great Views/Very Chatty Driver

The experience of seeing such a unique sunrise was amazing. We found it to be so beautiful and a great sight to be seen. We were told not to miss this and we are glad we didn't. Getting up so wicked early was worth it!...More

Such a waste of time.

I cannot understand how reviews were so positive. For a 5 minute sunrise, you have to wake up at 2am, spend 1 hr in the cold, and the rest of the time driving in a shuttle. The trip lasted almost NINE hours, all for a...More

We stayed at the Royal Lahaina Resort and was picked up at 2am. I am not sure how 'far up' the shuttle will go. Sorry I cannot be more specific.
