    • Whale watching

      Maui Dec 17, 2014 at 11:51 PM

      I'm going to Maui with my family (5 adults) next week. Someone had suggested going whale watching with the Pacific Whale Foundation. I've looked on their website, and they seem to offer a multitude of packages to do the same thing (so it seems).

      Any suggestions or experiences with these whale watching tours? They seem like a fun family activity for a reasonable price.

      I think the rafting option is a no-go, as my mom can't swim and will be scared to death. She'll want the stability of a boat.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Keonehe' ehe' e hiking trail start altitude too high?

      by darsunt Online Now Jan 26, 2013 at 9:25 AM

      I understand that the keonehe' ehe' e trailhead is just a short distance from the lookout point, at 9700 ft. My wife had trouble with altitude sickness hiking in Lake Tahoe (7k ft?) so do you guys think this trailhead would be too high for her?
      Is their any trail into the crater that has less elevation?

      Sunrise or sunset??

      by annk Online Now Jan 29, 2004 at 6:55 PM

      I've heard the majority of visitors ascend the mountain in the pre-dawn hours to view the spectacular sunrise and if skies are clear one can see the other Hawaiian islands in the distance. It supposedly gets very crowded in the mornings so an option would be to visit in the afternoon to see the sunset. Has anyone seen the Haleakala sunsets? If so are they less spectacular than the sunrises? Sunrise or sunset I'd like to hear of your experiences at Haleakala. Thanks!
