tours in Lahaina

by onthego43

Our ship will dock Oct 2 from 9:00 am - 11:00 pm. Are there tours we can catch at that time? Any at docks or individuals who give independent tours?

Cruising around Lahaina without a tour guide is preferred. I don't think you need one. It's mostly shops and tourist traps, but there is a lot of history there. Go to the Banyan tree and the old prison.

You can easily lull the day away just walking around, but if you want to do something fun, like a snorkel trip, or submarine ride, you can book it early. I would book something in advance. Go to or to find activities that appeal to you. Lahaina is a lot of fun at night too. Some good restaurants everywhere.

Stay away from Bubba Gumps, though.

Where exactly is your ship docking ... because if in Kahului, the main port ... you will be in central Maui. Lahaina is in west Maui about 45 minutes away. May need to consider transportation for the day. And if you end up needing a rent car may as well really explore.
We prefer easy hikes in the 'Iao Valley in Wailuku, next door neighbor city from Kahului; or a trek up the summit of Haleakala; or exploring upcountry to see the diversity of Maui's climate zones -- Tedeschi Winery, Grandma's Coffee, lavendar farm, several botanical gardens, definitely Kula Lodge for the amazing views plus breakfast, lunch, dinner ...
Also near airport/port in Kahului, just down the road is the town of Paia. Great shopping, good restaurants, 3 cool beaches nearby at Baldwin and Ho'okipa, can just go to overlook up on the point and watch surfers and windsurfers. Up the slope, maybe 10 minutes, is the town of Makawao with great shops, galleries, restaurants, Hot Island Glass studio. Both are small towns, maybe 2-4 blocks for the main drag .. and they are MUCH less crowded and busy than Lahaina or west Maui. Feel more laid back, more locals, not so tourist-y and expensive like west Maui.
Also one of the BEST restaurants on Maui, and that is saying a lot, is between Paia and Makawao - the Haliimaile General Store ... wow !!! Not on the beach or even in that fab a location since it overlooks the pineapple and cane fields and the slopes of Haleakala ... but wonderful rainbow and sunset views, and the food .... oh my !!!

Travel Tips for Lahaina

by doolemma

Take a ride up to the Haleakala Crater. It's 10,023 feet high to really enjoy the scenery, take the bicyle tour down. Thirty-eight miles of braking, very few place do you need to pedal. Great, Great.

Longi's on Front Street in Lahaina
The dining is informal, the location is great for people watching, the staff is friendly, and the food is good for breadfast, lunch or dinner. Fresh Fish - Mahi Mahi, Ono, Ahi. There actually is no menu necessary. The wait staff describes the day's selections at table side.

More on the Historical Walking trip: the lighthous

by malianrob

The old Lahaina Lighthouse is also near the Banyan tree park. Across from the park you will see the Pioneer Inn and in front of that going towards the ocean is the lighthouse. It was commissioned by King Kamehameha III in 1840.
Its not fancy or particularly beautiful but it has alot of history. The original lamp that was used to light the lighthouse was a whale oil lamp.
The original lighthouse was much smaller and was used to guide the whale boats in. It was only 9 ft high. It was then rebuilt to 26 feet high in 1866.
The interesting thing about this lighthouse is that it was the first lighthouse ever built in the Hawaiian Islands and its also older than the lighthouses we have in the Pacific Coast.
We didnt go inside just stood around it. I love checking out lighthouses, so another one to add to my scrap book.

Lahaina, HI

by RekaD

"A Trip to Paradise"

This was my first trip to Maui, and my first trip to Hawaii. And in a word ... wow! Hawaii was better and more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. I had an idea of what the scenery would look like based on images I'd seen in photos and movies. But nothing compares to the real thing ... crystal blue waters, white beaches, steep cliffs and lush green trees everywhere. Quite simply, Maui is breathtaking.

"Take a Catamaran Tour"

We were traveling with a group of about 40 people, and we had the luxury of chartering a catamaran for a day tour. I highly recommend getting out on a catamaran if you have the opportunity; the views of the island from out on the water are truly amazing. We boarded the catamaran right from the beach in Kaanapali and traveled about an hour to a popular snorkeling spot. Along the way we saw countless dolphins and sea turtles. But while snorkeling, we actually swam with the turtles, as well as countless other beautiful, and brightly colored fish.
