Lahaina Tours

star-4.5
92 Reviews
Lahaina
Once the Royal capital of Hawaii, Lahaina is a charming coastal town with a laid back feel. Close to some of Maui’s best beaches, it has plenty to offer, from shops, restaurants, and hotels to beautiful beaches, snorkeling, and whale-watching excursions. 

The Basics
If you’re heading to the beaches of West Maui to surf or sunbathe, chances are you’ll pass through the chilled-out town of Lahaina. Take some time to relax here on the popular Kaanapali beach, where you can also swim or snorkel, or head to Lahaina harbor for snorkel tours and whale-watching expeditions. 

You can also head to Napili Beach, which is known for its good surf, and sign up for surf lessons or watch the sunset on a sleek catamaran. In the evening, make your way to Lahaina’s Front Street’s restaurants, or attend a traditional Luau. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • There’s no lifeguard at Kaanapali beach, but it’s considered one of the safest swimming beaches in the area. 
  • Lahaina’s Historic District is a National Historic Landmark.
  • Lahaina town is largely wheelchair accessible, though some shops and restaurants do have stairs.   

How to Get There
Lahaina is located in West Maui, about a 45-minute drive from Kahului Airport. It’s easy to get around the area by car or taxi. Maui’s public bus system also links Lahaina to other towns across the island.  

When to Get There
Maui is a year-round destination with plenty of sunshine and warm days. Lahaina is well-known for its whale watching, and humpback season runs November–May. The town is somewhat quieter at other times of year. 

Visit the Iao Valley
Head inland from Lahaina, and you’ll find the Iao Valley State Monument. This area of dense forest and fast-running rivers is a popular destination for nature lovers, who come to catch a glimpse of Kuka‘emoku, a rocky, 1,200-foot-tall spire that towers over the forest. Lace up your boots, and hit the trails to see this natural wonder for yourself.

The Road to Lahaina

The Road to Lahaina

star-5
Lahaina was once the capital of Hawai’i, and a bustling harbor town that saw upwards of 400 whaling ships per day. It is now a favorite Maui destination for its wonderful beaches–great for surfing and snorkeling–and its lively downtown area littered with boutique shops, restaurants, and museums. Since Lahaina is on the dry side of the island, we’ll visit some more exotic locations along the way, including a sacred burial ground and a heritage park tucked high in the West Maui Mountains, lush botanical gardens, and a beautiful plantation property. Your day will be complete with the best of Maui, including beaches, mountains, gardens, dining, shopping, and numerous photo opps!
