Your Haleakala Crater excursion begins with a once-in-a-lifetime, dramatic drive through upcountry Maui on your way to the Haleakala National Park. The Park is an area of astounding diversity and beauty, covering over 30,000 acres of wilderness. It preserves the distinctive volcanic landscape of the summit area, and protects the pristine Kipahulu Valley and scenic pools at Oheo Gulch. Haleakala is home to many of the world's 13 ecosystems, including alpine cinder desert, subalpine shrubland and grassland, montage bogs, dryland forest, high elevation cloud forest, low elevation rainforest, and coastal. Take in the sights of the sugarcaned plains and protea farms of Kula as you travel beyond the tree line to where cacti and rare Hawaiian silver swords grow right up to the volcano's crest.

Upon arrival at the summit, located at 10,023 feet above sea level, you will have incredible views of Maui and the inside of the crater which is 3,000 feet deep, 7.5 miles long and 2.5 miles wide. Haleakala is an active, but not currently erupting volcano. Its last eruption occurred more than 200 years ago, in 1790. Many cinder cones rise from the crater's floor, the tallest being Pu'u o Maui measuring 500 feet tall. After a chance for photos from the summit, you will begin the scenic drive back to the pier. Based on weather and crowds, the itinerary may be changed.

Reviewer: Sweet Pea
We booked the Haleakala Crater excursion through Skymilescruises.com to do on our 2nd day in Maui. We were picked up by Roberts Hawaii shuttle bus and our driver was Harry, an intelligent funny guy. Wear comfortable clothing as you will have to do some minor climbing to enjoy the view. When it comes to craters I prefer Crater Lake (in Oregon) Ö this was beautiful just not as beautiful.
