Haleakala Crater & Maui Tropical Plantation
Journey to the highest point on the island of Maui, the magnificent Haleakala Crater. At 10,032 feet above sea level, this incredible crater could accommodate Manhattan Island with room to spare while stacking the Empire State Building four times without even reaching the top!
Departing from the ship, your guided drive up the mountain will take you through Maui’s diverse scenery. Reaching Haleakala National Park the panoramic views from the summit are spectacular. Last erupting in 1790, the astonishing crater of this dormant volcano measures 7.5 miles long, 2.5 miles wide, 21 miles around and 3,000 feet deep, covering 19 square miles. From your viewpoint you’ll appreciate firsthand the unique beauty of this massive crater with its interesting mix of volcano rock and plant life.
A stop will be made at Maui Tropical Plantation for lunch and time to do the tram through the Plantation.
Only available for Princess Cruises.
