Overview
Maui is known for its legendary sunsets, so why not watch it while standing atop the tallest peak on Maui? Here at nearly 10,000 feet (3,050 m) on the summit of Haleakala, watch the horizon explode in orange and bathe the island in light. As the oranges turn to blue and violet on the gradual journey towards dark, look towards the sky and watch as stars begin popping out through the heavens. The sunset experience is completely different than visiting Haleakala for sunrise, and in addition to the magical evening light show, guests will visit the Kula Lodge Marketplace on the journey up the mountain, and dine on a tasty, three-course meal at Café O’Lei past dark.
What to Expect
After the convenient hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach, sink into a comfortable seat for the journey up the mountain. Make a stop at the Kula Lodge Marketplace where you can experience the art and culinary talents of Maui and Hawaii's renowned artists and craftsmen.

After a stop at the Haleakala Park Visitor Center at about 7,000 feet (2,134m), make the final, winding, push towards the volcano’s magnificent summit. The crater overlook is just below the summit at 9,740 feet (2,969m), and there’s a good chance you’ll be one of the only people there. Gaze upon the colorful crater with its smooth, lunar cinder cones, and peer across the orange horizon to the peaks of the Big Island in the distance. After staying to watch the stars twinkle high above the volcano, descend the mountain for a three-course meal near sea level at Café O’Lei. Meal options are both meat and vegetarian, and the evening concludes with a convenient drop-off right back at your hotel.

Sample Dinner Menu:
First Course:
Caesar salad
Kula green salad with papaya seed and lilikoi dressing (veg)
Portuguese bean soup
Second Course:
Top sirloin steak
Chicken linguine
Grilled vegetable Napoleon over quinoa with pesto and balsamic reduction (veg)
Dessert:
Fresh fruit sorbet
Warm brownie sundae
Hawaiian coffee

Not worth it

We were picked up at 2:25 pm at our hotel for the sunset tour. The bus was on time and the people were super nice, however it took 2 hours to get to a stop where we changed buses to a smaller one. After that...More

Weather was not the best, but sunset was still beautiful

The tour company can't be blamed for the weather and it wasn't the best. On the way up, we were in and out of clouds and rain, so there wasn't much to see. Still, the sunset was beautiful in its own way. Our driver/guide was...More

Not worth the hype

The sunset was not as great as was hyped. Fortunately the clouds gave way so that we could see the bottom of the crater, but not enough to enable us to see the setting sun.

They have certain stops at Kihei. Not sure about your exact location, but they state that they pick up at most hotels and resorts. They will not pick up in residential areas.
