Leaving the port behind, your guided drive up the mountain will take you through Maui's diverse scenery.  Reaching Haleakala National Park the panoramic views from the summit are spectacular. At 10,032 feet above sea level, this incredible crater could accommodate Manhattan Island with room to spare while stacking the Empire State Building four times without reaching the top! 

As you wind your way up the banks of the mighty Haleakala you’ll make a stop at the Rangers Station. Here at 10,000 feet you are almost at the summit and will have a chance to admire the awesome scenery. 

The highlight of your tour will be the scenic overview from the edge of the crater.  Here you can try to imagine the immenseness of this once violent bubbling natural vent. Last erupting in 1790, the astonishing crater of this dormant volcano measures 7 ½ miles long, 2 ½ miles wide, 21 miles around and 3,000 feet deep, covering 19 square miles.  From your viewpoint you'll appreciate first-hand the unique beauty of this colossal crater with its interesting mix of volcano rock and plant life.
