West Maui Private Sightseeing Adventure Tour Features
West Maui Shield Volcano
You’ve no doubt heard of Haleakala, but two distinct dormant volcanoes formed Maui island. The majestic Haleakala, towering at an impressive 10,023 feet, dominates the eastern region, while the West Maui shield volcano (Halemahina), erupting a million years ago, reaches a height of 5,788 feet. Over countless millennia, the forces of nature have sculpted the breathtaking West Maui Mountains, with their steep slopes and awe-inspiring landscapes. Delight in the remarkable wonders that time and erosion have created, and immerse yourself in the sheer magnificence of the West Maui Mountains.
A Unique Village In Where Time Stands Still
Explore the enchanting Kahakuloa Bay, a hidden gem in Hawaii. This secluded community is home to a small population of approximately 100 residents, most of whom are descendants of the original inhabitants.
Immerse yourself in the rich history of this old fishing village, which has been a sanctuary for the indigenous people of Maui since approximately 300 B.C. The coastline is adorned with humble homes and lush taro fields, where many villagers work and thrive.
The journey to Kahakuloa is an adventure, with the only access being the scenic yet challenging Kahekili Highway. Experience the allure of this remote town, where tranquility meets tradition and beauty surrounds every corner.
Nakalele Point Blowhole
Experience the power of nature at Nakalele Point's breathtaking blowhole. This spectacular phenomenon draws both locals and tourists with its explosive eruptions of water and air, creating an exhilarating sight. Stand back and witness the forceful jets shooting out from this partially submerged underwater cave while keeping yourself at a safe distance. You will probably still feel the salty spray, though! Don't miss the chance to witness this amazing display of nature's might.

As we ascend the narrow mountain road, you will enjoy breathtaking views of the rugged and dramatic coastline.
Our journey continues to a cliff-top gallery showcasing the incredible works of over 100 local artisans.
