One of the significant reasons you should visit Maui is that everyone can appreciate its beauty.
There will always be something for everyone, whether you are 10 or 85.
Bask in the rolling clouds over the West Maui Mountains. Stare in awe at the sunrise atop the Haleakala Volcano. Or you can even decide to relax on some lovely beach somewhere on the island.
No matter your preferences, Maui will always have something for you.
Riding the waves on a surfboard or zip-lining with your grandchildren may appeal to only some. However, if you are not into these activities, there will still be more for you.
Maui has a wide variety of great activities for everyone.

1. Explore the Ocean with a Submarine Adventure
If you are not up to going on other activities like scuba diving (or diving, for that matter), you can go snorkeling. However, if snorkeling is out of the window, we have a perfect solution for you.
This tour will have you enjoy the wonders of the Pacific Ocean from down under.
All you need to do is a short boat ride from Lahaina Harbor. The boat ride proceeds to the site of the Atlantis Submarine.
The submarine can accommodate about 48 passengers. It can take guests on tour and provide a view of life beneath the surface.
Prepare to see schools of tropical fish, a sunken Carthaginian replica of a supply vessel from the 19th century, and an artificial reef.
If you get lucky, you might even see some scuba divers on the wreck. Once in a while, these divers may wave you a warm aloha.
This submarine is the first of its kind in the world. It is one of the most technologically-advanced passenger submarines.
The Atlantis can take its guests down for more than 100 feet. There will be tour guides who can ease the tension in case some guests may feel uncomfortable. The guides will also regale you with information and a lot of stories.
The submarine also comes with an air conditioning system. So, no need to do anything. Just sit back and take all the scenery in.
The tour happens five times per day.
To enter and exit Atlantis, you have to use a 10-foot ladder.
2. Take a Sunset Cruise
You are already in Maui. Why don’t you elevate the romance?
This sunset tour will take you to Maui’s most romantic and relaxing places. And that is aboard a cruise with dinner and sunset along the way.
The tour will have you hop aboard the Sunset Dinner and Cocktail Cruises. Here, you will enjoy all the best and the freshest food, an open bar, and some live Hawaiian music.
The tour will give you a 360-degree view of the scenery. On this cruise, you will get the chance to observe the world around you from its sprawling observation deck.

The cocktails onboard include Wine, premium cocktails, beer, and some blended drinks. Dinner includes the freshest seafood, ribs, BBQ chicken with dips, and dessert.
While on the cruise, the island’s best slack vital guitarists and vocalists will entertain you until the wee hours of the evening.
3. A Visit to Iao Valley
Iao Valley is a state park of about 4,000 acres. It is full of rich historical significance and provides its guests with a view of the immense beauty of the West Maui Mountains.
Iao Valley is one of the most amazing places on the island.
Iao Valley is a place you can visit for a day. It’s only a short drive from the island’s center. It is pretty close.
Here, you can enjoy a day trip for serenity and an experience of the quiet side of Maui.
The valley is famous as the battleground where King Kamehameha I defeated the armies of Maui in the 1790s.
From that day, the place became a destination for reflection and enjoyment among guests. To this day, it is a place where you can commune with nature.
You can walk the park trails. It will only take you a few minutes.
I suggest, however, that you take an umbrella with you. Wear your walking shoes and bring with you some lunch.
Once you have these, you can enjoy the afternoon with amazing views of the Iao Needle. The Iao Needle is a natural rock pinnacle that measures about 1,200 feet. It is near the entrance of the park,
Take a short walk and pass through the botanical garden.
Make sure to bring a light jacket, as it sometimes gets cooler. The area also gets less sun than other parts of the island.
4. A Taste of Maui Wine
Maui Wine sits on a property of about 23 acres.
The property is historical and is in the Ulupalakua Ranch area. Here, you will find yourself within a beautiful winery sitting among amazing gardens and unique trees. The structures in the area are also exceptional in their age significance.
Some of these structures even date back to about the 1800s.
Maui Wine is a perfect destination for a relaxing afternoon picnic. Here, you will have several opportunities for amazing photos on top of the wine tasting that should happen while on the property.

There is even a sparkling rose that is a feast on the palate. It is as refreshing as the views around you.
The property sits about 1,650 feet up on the mountains. And so, aside from the wine tasting and the delicious food, there are amazing sceneries that you can enjoy.

The tour comes with rain and weather gear, a stop at Maui’s cowboy town, Makawao, and another visit to Kula.
