Activities and Things to Do on Maui

There are hundreds of different activities for you and your family to participate in while visiting Hawaii and even more vendors and companies that can make reservations and book your trips for you. 808 Reviews is not in the business of booking your trips, and we don’t get a kick back for making your reservations. 808 Reviews is dedicated to telling you about the activities, providing your with accurate information, and letting you make the decision about what you want to do with your vacation once you’re here.

Whether you want to learn to surf, go snorkeling, or just relax on the beach, 808 Reviews will let you know where you'll get the best experience. All of our writers have experienced, first hand, all of the activities we write about. If we haven't done it, we don't write about it.

We have participated in snorkeling, scuba diving, horseback riding, surfing, hiking, parasailing, jet skiing, sailing, fishing, and just about everything else there is to do while on vacation. So take some time and look around for the activities you’d like to try during your vacation. And if there is something we missed, send us an email and let us know. Next time you’re here there just might be a new article about a new activity.

Sea Maui Charters: Sunset Sail

It began when I told the kids, “We’re going on the Pride of Maui, two weeks from Sunday.” “Which boat is that, Daddy?” my youngest son asked. “It’s one out of Maalaea Harbor that goes to Molokini and Turtle Town,” I replied.
