The Molokini Crater is one of only three volcanic calderas in the world, which makes this snorkeling trip an absolute must on your list of activities to do.

Depending on the age of your children, a hike in Iao Valley State Park might be the perfect choice, but if you have younger children, we suggest that you book a Maui Treasure Hunt. This is a hike designed for kids that includes family hiking, swimming in a private lagoon, and searching for pirate booty with a special treasure map. This activity is designed for families with children five years of age and older, as it is three hours long. Make sure to carve out time during your family trip for this fun bonding experience, and don’t forget your camera!
Nothing speaks to Hawaiian culture like the luau. In ancient Hawaii, men and women did not eat together, but King Kamehameha II removed all of the religious laws that forbade this. In a symbolic act, he ate with women and this began the tradition of the first luau parties. Make sure to plan on attending one of the events at the Old Lahaina Luau. Your family will have the opportunity to experience some of the aspects of traditional Hawaiian culture, such as ceremonies, crafts, and foods. Some of the traditional foods that you can expect to enjoy are Haupia, Kalua pork, poi, and poke. In fact, the pork is cooked in the traditional Hawaiian underground oven known as an Imu. Experience the thrill of fire dancing and the beauty of the hula as you watch professional dancers tell stories of the ocean and creation through dance.
