Makena Activities

Makena Hawaii Facts and Information:

  There are a few places left in Hawaii where it is possible to walk along quiet stretches of sand, see the waves splash on ancient and storied shores, and feel what the Hawaiians call the mana, or spirit of the land. One such area is Makena, home of the Maui Prince Hotel, Makena Resort & Golf Course. On one side looms the 10,000 foot dormant volcano Mount Haleakala, and the other side, the blue Pacific with the Islands of Molokini and Lana'I in the distance.

Once, Makena was home to many fishing communities who snared the abundant akule fish that came to the area to spawn. Reminders of the ancient ways can be found in the red earth of the area - heiau or templates to Ku'ula Kai, patron of fisherman, a healing sanctuary beside the Christian chapel and ruins of old fishponds at La Perouse Bay.

Heading out of town on North Kihei Road will bring you to Maalaea, where you will find several oceanfront condos and Maalaea Harbor, continue on the road West and you will access to the old whaling town of Lahaina and the resort areas of West Maui, Kaanapali, Kahana, Napili and Kapalua.

    This fantastic Maui snorkeling adventure would leave even Jacques Cousteau thrilled, as he grinned from ear-to-ear! Hold on as our boat zooms across Hawaii’s sparkling warm tropical waters out to Molokini Crater. Your adventure begins when we leave from the small boat ramp in Kihei. Kihei is a convenient location of origin that will give us the advantage of being one of the first boats to arrive at our Molokini Crater snorkeling spot. After Molokini, your Maui snorkel guides will zip you over to the Forbidden Coast on the south side of Maui. This area is generally buffeted by high winds, but when the winds are light, it is an amazing place to get underwater. There are lava arches, grottoes, and caves, inhabited by epic underwater life that is visited by human life only rarely. La Perouse Bay is a favorite hangout spot for Hawaiian spinner dolphins, and Redline will take you there, too. Excellent! Learn More
