Sea & Sky Tours at the Magic Isle

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Evergreen: Fly Non-Stop To 10 West Coast Cities

Maui, nicknamed “The Magic Isle,” is certainly a gorgeous gem of the Hawaiian Islands. It seems most befitting that the flower of Maui is the Lokelani, meaning “heavenly rose.” Maui is the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands, located approximately 21 degrees north of the equator in the most isolated land in the world. The nearest land mass to Hawaii is San Francisco, approximately 2,400 miles away. Of the total of more than 100 islands in Hawaii, only eight are considered major islands – Ni’ihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui, Lanai, Kaho’olawe, and the Big Island of Hawaii – and only seven of those islands are inhabited. Anytime of year is a good time to visit Maui. The average temperature is between 75˚-85˚ F throughout the year. Maui reaches from sea level to 10,023 feet, to the summit of a dormant volcano, Haleakalä. Sugar, pineapple, cattle, and agriculture are a few of Maui’s major industries, with tourism at the top of the list. Maui’s world-famous beauty attracts tons of recreation activities, including golfing, horseback riding, hiking, whale-watching, nautical adventures, and helicopter tours!

Legend has it that the island of Maui was named after the Native Hawaiian demigod Maui, who pulled up the Hawaiian islands from deep out of the ocean with a magic fishhook linked to the heavens. After the islands were pulled out, the chord broke from the heavens, and the magic fishhook sank down into the ocean, lost forever. There is no better way to explore the mysteries of the deep, see the underwater coral beauty of Maui, and meet a colorful array of marine life located only in Hawaii than to take an underwater voyage. Hawaii’s coral reefs, the “rainforests of the sea,” are incredibly diverse ecological communities. With nothing more than a mask an a snorkel, you’ll be in a whole new world.

I’d like to invite you on the Molokini Snorkel & Turtle Town Morning Adventure from Maui, a perfect opportunity to discover the rich foundations of Maui’s birth and meet its tropical underwater locals. Climb aboard the Pride of Maui, a state-of-the-art 65 foot catamaran famous for her stability and comfort. Relax as you cruise in style to two beautiful diving destinations. The tour includes an Island-style continental breakfast, two snorkeling stops, a delicious lunch, snorkeling gear, and instructions. You’ll visit Molokini, a crescent shaped caldera that is a protected marine sanctuary. The waters are calm and clear, which is perfect for scuba diving, snuba diving, and snorkeling. You will also visit Turtle Town, known for its beautiful lava formations and Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles.

If you’d like to dive even deeper, then take a once-in-a-lifetime undersea adventure on our Atlantis Submarine Tour! It is the world’s first and most technologically advanced passenger submarine. Journey into a spectacular blue world more than 130 feet below the surface in spacious air-conditioned comfort. You will see the majestic natural coral reefs and Hawaiian marine life. From December through May, you can enjoy whale watching during the ship-to-shore journey. Reservations are HIGHLY recommended for this popular tour!

The Island of Maui is also called the “Valley Isle” for the large isthmus between its northwestern and southeastern volcanoes and the numerous large valleys carved into the mountains. Explore deep, meandering valleys set in the rainforest of the ancient West Maui Mountains. Knife-edged ridges with mist-shrouded peaks separate the spectacular valleys. Waterfalls cascade down from towering cliffs into the streams running along the rainforest floor. Take off on the Maui Spectacular Helicopter Tour to soar with a bird’s eye view to see the rainforests and waterfalls of the West Maui Mountains, Hana, and the Haleakala Crater. You’ll also enjoy a 20-minute landing and refreshments at Ulupalakua Ranch. Every West Maui Mountains tour is unique!

Discover the best of both worlds on our West Maui Island Deluxe Helicopter Tour & Submarine Adventure. Experience Maui under the sea as well as above it! Take in views from above, inaccessible by land and discover lush green rainforests, cascading waterfalls and a dormant volcano. Then, marvel at Hawaii’s unique underwater paradise aboard a high-tech 48-passenger submarine. View fascinating coral reefs and their inhabitants as you explore the ocean more than 100 feet below. Every dive is a new adventure!

From heavenly summit views to pristine beaches and thriving nautical life, there are plenty of reasons why Maui has been voted “Best Island” by travelers for years. Discover your own reasons to love Maui with Maui Tours. Feel free to call us at 888-321-3650 to answer your questions and help book your favorite tours. From breath-taking sunrises atop Haleakala Crater to the scenic Road to Hana, your adventures in Maui promise to be unforgettable. It’s no wonder why thousands of whales migrate directly to Maui year after year. One visit to the Magic Isle, and you might annually join them.

The Visa Black Card
Traveling with kids to the Big Apple sometimes requires creative planning, especially when looking for something unique to do that doesn’t involve endless hours of walking as tourist trips often do.  Since children are often easily bored, you will need something that can hold a child’s attention but that will not last all day.  Luckily, there are plenty of options in the city that can fit both your interests and your schedule. 

Tours run every half hour from 11:00 am – 3:30 pm so you are able to pick the time that works best for your group.  I will point out, however, that helicopter tours in New York book up fast.  It is best to plan well in advance of your trip so your dates of choice will not be sold out.  You definitely don’t want to miss out on this once in a lifetime experience!
