We would like to extend our appreciation and say THANK YOU for booking here, making us a part of your vacation. To get your simply make your Maui activities selections below and I will email it to you!!
There are so many ways to have fun on Maui, and so many activities that are completely unique to the island that you could pack your days for a month and still have a full itinerary for a long time to come. Many Maui activities are free or very reasonably priced. Others are relatively expensive and are worth every nickel.
It is our contention that every vacation will be greatly enriched by experiencing at least one activity on our DEBBIES TIPS list. Not every activity on this list is right for every visitor, but we're pretty sure that you'll be thrilled with those Maui activities that strike you as interesting.
A word about "free" or heavily discounted programs: you may be
offered substantial discounts, in exchange for your most welcome
attendance at a hammering session designed to put you and your
newly thinned wallet into a long-term time-share obligation. You
probably came to paradise to relax: unless you've already devoted
a lot of thought to such a purchase, and have come here for that
purpose, we strongly recommend against wasting your precious time
with these land sharks.
You don't have to spend a lot of money to have a great time on Maui. Poke around, follow the back roads, walk the highlight areas, hang out at the beaches, and magical sights and occurrences are bound to happen. Whales leap from the surface just offshore, tail-slapping the surface on reentry. Bamboo forests harbor hidden oasis', with abundant, wild fruit falling off the trees, for the taking. Sunsets rippled with colors that challenge the human processing senses mesh with intricate cloud formations that hug the mountains, and make Haleakala shimmer. Maui invites exploration, by car and or by foot. It's walker and driver friendly. We provide our clients with free Tip Sheets that give details and directions to the best hikes, beaches, and other hidden outposts that open doors to all sorts of adventure.
It is a good idea to book your Maui activities ahead of time so that you are assured space on the best activity or tour. You will be able to spend your precious moments on Maui Hawaii actually enjoying your vacation!! There is certainly plenty to see and do on Maui; at last count over 400 vendors providing some 30 different activities and tours which we handle for you. If you're having trouble choosing an activity or simply haven't the time to conduct a search on your own, visit our Maui Activity Desk and I will do the searching for you! The Activity Desk is open from 8 am to 8 pm HST every day. I will get back to you TODAY in one way or another.
