3 Things to do in Maui with Kids (Including a Helicopter Tour in Hawaii!)

Maui is an exceptional vacation destination for families. It offers a wealth of opportunities for adults and children of all ages to experience and enjoy. If you’re dreaming of a Hawaiian getaway, here are three of the top things to do in Maui with kids.

1) View Hawaiian Marine Life Up Close

No trip to Hawaii is complete without spending time with Hawaii's neighbors, the marine life that surrounds the islands. At the Maui Ocean Center, you can see it all up close without getting wet. This aquarium contains the world's largest collection of Pacific corals and was recently named one of the Top 25 Best Aquariums in the US by TripAdvisor. The highlight of the center for kids is the 54 foot long walk-through tunnel where you can view Hawaiian green sea turtles and other Pacific marine animals above and around you.

2) Attend a Traditional Luau

Spending an evening at a traditional Hawaiian Luau is a must do for any family. Your children will love starting the evening with island crafts and demonstrations. There is something for everyone (even if you have picky eaters in your family) at the buffet filled with traditional Hawaiian food. Finally, your family will enjoy a presentation of music and hula dancing where you will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for Hawaii's rich history and culture.

3) Go Soaring over Maui

There's no doubt about it– Maui is stunning from any vantage point. But going on a helicopter tour in Hawaii will show a fantastic point of view you and your kids will never forget. Imagine viewing some of Maui's top attractions, such as Haleakala Crater or Iao State Park, from the breathtaking view from above. In addition to the excitement of seeing Hawaii's natural beauty, your kids will enjoy the thrill of riding in a helicopter. A helicopter tour in Hawaii will definitely be a dream come true for your entire family.
