Haleakala Crater Lookout: Visit the Haleakala Crater, the world’s largest dormant volcano. See the crater known as The House of the Sun that measures 7.5 miles long by 2.5 miles wide, which last erupted in 1790. You can gaze out at the beauty from the 9,740-ft. vantage point, with panoramic views of the Hawaiian Islands chain. We’ll visit the Haleakala Visitors Center and Park Headquarters Visitors Center.
Maui Tropical Plantation: Enjoy lunch at the Maui Tropical Plantation, a 60-acre tropical paradise located in the majestic Waikapu Valley. View a glimpse of Maui’s historic agricultural past on the grounds of this former sugarcane plantation as you take in the sights and smells of the islands. Enjoy free time at the Country Market for a variety of locally grown products and tasty goods.
Lahaina: Your next stop will be the town of Lahaina which was once an important whaling village and served as the capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Here, you will have time on your own to explore the many shops and restaurants along Front Street before returning to your awaiting ship in Kahului.
