7 Family Activities in Maui to Check Out

A trip to Maui, Hawaii is likely to be any family’s idea of a dream vacation. The island is filled with breathtaking sights and fun adventures people of any age will enjoy. While you’re visiting, be sure to check out these seven family activities in Maui.

1. Maui Ocean Center

You can spot plenty of marine life in the ocean around Maui, but you’ll be able to see even more in the Maui Ocean Center. The aquarium has more than 60 indoor-outdoor exhibits where your family can see sharks, turtles, stingrays, tropical fish and live Pacific corals.

2. Zip Lining

Zip lining is one of the best family activities in Maui, letting you experience the island’s diverse landscape in a thrilling way. A variety of companies, including Skyline Eco Adventures and Maui Zipline, offer zip lining that lets you see the valleys, mountains, forests and the Pacific Ocean.

3. Snorkeling

If your kids are a little older – and with proper supervision, of course – snorkeling lets your family explore Maui’s sea life up-close. The island is home to popular places to snorkel and plenty of shops that rent equipment. If you have young kids or family members without snorkeling experience, consider Baby Beach just north of Lahaina. The sand is soft and the water is calmer near shore than it is on many other beaches.

4. The Road to Hana

Visit the winding Road to Hana, an unspoiled area boasting lush rainforests, waterfalls and gorgeous ocean views. Take your time by stopping and enjoying sights along the way, or plan to spend the night in Hana. If you’d prefer not to drive the approximately 150 miles – which has plenty of harrowing curves – book a Maverick Helicopter Hana Rainforest Experience flight, which offers bird's-eye views and lands in the rainforest for an unparalleled experience.

5. 'Ulalena

This stage production, praised by many national publications and websites, celebrates and shares Hawaii’s rich history. The storyline and characters center around Maui as the show features local music, dance and more than 100 instruments played live.

6. Helicopter Tour of Maui

To see uniquely breathtaking views of Maui, take one of Maverick Helicopter's four tours of the island. ECO-Star helicopters seat up to seven passengers, so there’s plenty of room for the entire family. Choose from a full island excursion and more.
