Join us on a fun-filled day exploring West Maui's lush and tropical Mountain Range. Sit back and relax in our air-conditioned 6 passenger Luxury SUV as we take you on an excursion through Maui's less traveled sights and locations. The West Maui Mountains are truly an amazing sight to see and can go unnoticed on your first time to Maui. We'll cover all the best highlights of the West Maui's and provide you with a memorable experience of a lifetime.
A paved 0.6-mile walk provides a scenic viewpoint of Kuka‘emoku (a.k.a. the ʻIao Needle), an erosional feature which abruptly rises 1200 feet from the valley floor. Learn about the plants brought by the Hawaiians who settled in ʻIao Valley by taking a short walk through a botanical garden.
This valley is rich in cultural and spiritual values and is the site of the battle of Kepaniwai where the forces of Kamehameha I conquered the Maui army in 1790.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy being driven through a lush, scenic, cliffside road with endless ocean views. We'll drive through macadamia nut farms, cattle ranches and quaint Hawaiian villages that haven't changed in decades. Lush and tropical surroundings are found throughout this drive, with the occasional beautiful, towering waterfalls cascading through the valleys from the distance.
Switchbacks Hawaii offers a variety of snacks and non-alcoholic beverages to keep us energized and active throughout the day. We also stop for Banana Bread, local Hawaiian fruits, and fresh produce as well as other local Hawaiian treats, we stop for along the way.
We love to have our guests not only have the best options for your meal, however we wish to provide you with a view that cannot go ignored at a location that cannot be beat. Our lunch option will be catered and held at Duke's Beach House. A very well-known and popular restaurant right here on Maui's West Side.
