Start your day in Maui with a breathtaking sunrise view of the island from atop its highest peak on this daybreak excursion to Mount Haleakala. This exceptional sunrise experience is sure to be a highlight of your trip to Maui.

Start your trip in the dark of the very early morning with a pickup at your Maui hotel. You’ll then continue by air-conditioned minibus on a scenic drive passing the Kula District. and Maui’s rare silversword plants.

Arriving at the Haleakala National Park, steadily climb by minibus up Haleakala to 9,740 feet elevation to the Visitor Center. You’ll see Maui’s rare and endemic silversword plants that poignantly bloom once, then perish. You’ll also witness the sunrise from the Visitor Center area. The views from Haleakala are nothing short of spectacular. Writer Mark Twain, upon visiting the peak in 1866, wrote that the volcano was “the most sublime spectacle I ever witnessed and the memory of it will remain with me always.”

Observe the first rays of the new day slowly creep across the distant horizon. Soon the sky fills with the majestic glow of the new day, and the warm beams of light creep across the island of Maui, illuminating the land below. It’s a sight you’re sure to remember for many years to come.

At the end of your morning sunrise experience you’ll head to breakfast at a local restaurant and then receive a drop-off back at your Maui hotel, tired but thrilled by your amazing morning trip.

Incredible view, pack warm clothes!!
, Jun 2021
The sunrise at Haleakala was breathtaking. We were picked up right outside our hotel which made waking up around 2 am just a little easier. Even in June, it was about 45* at the top, so be sure to pack plenty of warm clothes!
They did not pick us up
, Jun 2021
The local tour company forgot to pick us up even after our trip and pick up had been confirmed. We got up for a 2:10am pick up and they never called to let us know they were not coming. It is very disappointing.

Aloha Donna, We are very sorry that this occurred and apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for taking the time to post a review.
Majestic sunrise.
, Jun 2021
Seeing the sunrise from Haleakala was beautiful. Preston was informative and made the day easy for us. It’s a long day, but worth not having to make the drive ourselves. Definitely dress warm as it got really windy and cold.
Exceptional tour and guide
, Jun 2021
Worth waking up very early to get picked up from our hotel at 210am. Preston was informative and patient and went out of his way to take us to another spot to sightsee after the sunrise tour. It was a great experience. Thank you, Preston!
Incredible Sight!

Preston is the best!
, May 2021
We picked a great weather day to go. That is just luck. But Preston did an amazing job and knew so much about the drive, the island and things to point out along the way. We saw so much and learned a lot too. Ask for Preston’s tour and you won’t be disappointed.
Awesome experience

A Mist First tour of your vacation
