Family Fun on Maui


Double Lines

A 2,800,000-litre water tank surrounds you. As you and your family walk through the acrylic tunnel, you marvel at the manta rays and sharks swimming safely overhead. The Maui Ocean Center, voted Hawaii’s top-rated family attraction by Zagat, is just one of the many family-friendly treasures you’ll find on Maui.

Ride on a genuine 1890s train, known as the Sugar-Cane Train, on the Lahaina-Kaanapali Railroad. Build a sand castle at one of Maui’s many beautiful beaches. Turn your 7 to 12-year-olds into Junior Rangers at the Haleakala Visitor Center. Or get your kids involved in hands-on exhibits at the Hawaii Nature Center in Wailuku.

If you’re staying in a hotel or resort, they’ll likely have a keiki (children's) program that includes everything from lei making to hula lessons, helping to create truly unique Maui memories to share with your children.
