Aloha! I now have availability for Private Haleakala Sunrise Tours!
Rules changed a few years ago, and now only 4 Tour Companies are allowed into the Haleakala National Park. Haleakala National Park also now only allows 180 vehicles into the Park between 3:00 AM and 7:00 AM.
Taxi’s are allowed into the Haleakala National Park at both entrances: Hana’s famous Seven Pools in Kipahulu, and at the top of Haleakala Volcano.
Watching the Sunrise atop Haleakala Volcano is a rare, unique and for many, a spiritual experience… Think about it… standing along the rim of a huge Basin at 10,023 ft., watching as the sun rises! did i mention the views are spectacular… perfect for ‘selfies’.
With no light pollution, our Hawaiian night sky can be amazing!! As we arrive at the top, you will stargaze and walk a short distance across the parking lot to the viewing area. It takes about an hour for the sun to rise. This hour is the most important time. Sunrise starts with a thin sliver of light, getting wider, until the sun comes up. It is during that first hour, that the light of the rising Sun, picks up the many varied colors and crystals of the basin floor.
Experiencing the Sunrise on top of Haleakala Volcano is one of the best things to do in Hawaii! Depending on weather conditions, the views are absolutely stunning!
It will be Cold. Visitors from Alaska and Canada are always surprised at just how cold it can get. A lot depends on the Wind chill that evening/morning.
On a clear morning, after sunrise, you will be able to see the Volcanoes sticking out of the clouds, over on the “Big Island”. Then turn and you will see Maui’s shadow in the Ocean. You should be able to see the Islands of Ka’hoolawe, Lana’i and maybe even Moloka’i-behind/over Mauna Kahalawai. Spectacular! (views are weather conditions permitting).
Tours are normally 5-6 Hours, depending on where we meet.
Hungry? I am happy to stop for snacks/breakfast at the Kula Marketplace after.
Call or Text me for prices and information. Depending on your location, we meet approximately 3:00 AM.
