About The Tour

A sunset atop Haleakala — known as house of the sun in Hawaiian — is pure magic. You’ll be walking on sunshine, that is of course until the stars come out. Then, weather permitting, you’ll behold some of the best stargazing in the world. You'll be so close to the stars you'll swear you can touch them!

Here are just a few of the fun things you can do on the tour!

•⁠ Watch the sunset atop Mt. Haleakala
•⁠ Look for constellations at Haleakala's summit
•⁠ Hike the Hosmer Grove or Sliding Sands trails
•⁠ Visit a lavender or dairy farm
•⁠ Walk through historic Makawao Town

Shaka is a 10/10 recommend. Our Road to Hana drive wouldn't have been as fun and enriching if we hadn't used this app. Without this app we would have definitely missed some spots. We also tried the Haleakala tour which was so much fun. Hang loose, bruh!

Road to Hana

Loved the app, so informative, interesting and the history lessons were great! Will use this app for other tours! Thank you for a delightful day!

The classic tour did a great job of telling about places and turns well before they happened so you can decide to do these things before the turn. I also loved the history of Hawaii and Maui on the way back.

Do you need a reservation for Haleakala Sunset?

No, reservations are not required for sunset at Haleakala. If you’re unable to get sunrise reservations no worries! Just download our sunset tour and stay to watch the sun go down!

What to wear to the Haleakala sunset?

Dress warmly in layers for the Haleakala sunset. Temperatures drop significantly in the park, especially at high altitudes. We recommend you bring a jacket, hat, gloves, and blankets. You’ll also want to bring water and snacks.

Is Maui open following the recent fires?

Yes, but it depends on where you go. West Maui, including Lahaina, Nāpili, Kāʻanapali, and Kapalua is currently closed to visitors through mid-October. You can visit other parts of Maui including Haleakala National Park. Please be respectful on yo...

What is an Audio Tour Guide?

Think of us as your personal tour guide in an app. Our tours provide everything a guided tour does, but with the freedom to explore on your terms. Here’s how it works:

  • GPS triggers audio narration to play automatically as you drive or walk.
  • Listen to stories, get local insights, visit must-see stops and get turn-by-turn navigation.

Yes! Feel free to join the tour along the route. Just make sure that you follow the numbers in chronological order from where you are starting from. If you don’t begin at one of the tour starting points you’ll miss a few stories, but you’ll still have a great experience.

No, the tour starts and ends in Kahului. If you’d like to begin this tour at Haleakala National Park you can join the tour along the route, but you’ll miss out on some stories.

It depends on the time of year, but sunset in the winter (October-March) is between 5:30 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. and in the summer (April-September) it’s between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. We recommend you double check the night before your visit.

Please note, if you’re staying in West Maui at one of the resorts in Lahaina, Kaanapali or Kapalua it takes about 45 minutes to reach the start of the tour in Kahului and then, depending on the stops you make, it takes about 2-3 hours to reach the summit. This tour is designed with no stops on the way back with the expectation you’ll be driving at night.
