Unique Maui Adventures to Try OutUpdated: June 28, 2021
Maui never fails to draw tourists back to its sandy shores and refreshing ocean breezes. And if you’re someone who has been to Maui again and again and thought that you’d done everything you can in this paradise, you might change your mind after checking out our list of unique Maui adventures that you probably haven’t done yet.
Maui has dozens of waterfalls, hidden or otherwise. The first thing you might think of when seeing and hearing the loud cascading cold freshwater would be to strip down and dive into the cool refreshing water. But if you want a more exciting activity, you can try rappelling down the rock cliffs next to a waterfall! It can get slippery and dangerous but rest assured, professional rappelers will be helping you out, and you’ll be decked in complete safety gear so you can enjoy the thrill of this Maui adventure.
Outrigger Canoe Ride
Want to feel like a native and explore how traditional Hawaiians do it? You can book an outrigger canoe tour! You’ll be doing the paddling while on an outrigger canoe as a certified marine naturalist accompanies you, who will be guiding your paddling and show you the best snorkel spots. And if you’re visiting during the winter season, they can also guide you for some incredible whale watching.
Maui Pineapple Tour
Pineapples are not native to the islands of Hawaii, but it has become a symbol of the place. So, where better to learn about this delectable tropical fruit than in Maui? Sign up for a fun and educational tour of a pineapple farm. They’ll even send you home with your pineapples, boxed and ready to travel.
Baldwin Home Museum Tour
You can get a particular type of thrill with an evening tour of the Baldwin home museum in Lahaina, Maui. The tour starts at dusk until 8:30 pm, with a guide leading the way only with candlelight as they tell you about the history of the place and the significance of the Baldwin family that used to reside there. So try out this one-of-a-kind Maui adventure.
Hana Lava Tube
Back when Maui’s Mt. Haleakala was active, the lava that would flow from its crater to the ocean would cool on the outside and drain out on the inside, leaving behind a long, cylindrical tunnel. As you drive through Hana, you can make the Hana lava tube one of your unique stops in your Maui adventures. Locally known as the Ka’Eleku Cavern, this geographical marvel is welcome to be explored by anyone. Many signs inside the cavern point to the highlights of the lava formations.
Maui Swap Meet
If you want to discover unique island products and souvenirs, head to the biggest swap meet in Maui at the University of Hawaii Maui college campus. You’ll see rows and rows of booths selling different local products. Maybe you might find the perfect souvenir to take home.
Maybe you’ve already gone ziplining or hiked up Mount Haleakala and have seen the islands from a summit, but have you ever seen the whole island from a bird’s eye view? It’s a breathtaking must-see view that only a helicopter tour can give you. Each tour promises soaring oceanfront cliffs, rocky coastlines, and lush valleys, and many other hidden delights that can only be seen from the sky.

After an exciting time from up in the sky, get up close and personal with the many Maui wonders on land through a private local jeep tour with Hoaloha Jeep Adventures.
