Other Activities

Maui offers many activities besides windsurfing! If it is not windy, no problem. Below is a sampling of the countless activities that Maui has to offer. General rule: if you think about wanting to to something, it can probably be done here! Test our staff's knowledge by calling or emailing us today.

 

Surfing:

During the summer months expect to surf the southern shores of Maui. The name spot would have to be Ma'alaea, home of the fastest right hand break in the state. In the winter months the focus switches to the northern shores. On Maui there's Ho'okipa and probably the most beautiful right-hand wave in the world, Honolua Bay. Ask the Vela Maui staff about rentals and lessons.

Kitesurfing:

Want to learn kitesurfing? Check out our Dare2Fly Maui center, which offers lessons for all abilities and rentals for experienced kiters or students that have mastered the fundamentals. Both can be reserved lessons through our reservations office.

Stand-Up Paddle / Stand-Up Paddle Surfing:

As you likely already know by now, this sport has exploded onto the scene wherever a big body of water is available, and the coastline of Maui seems to have more "paddlers" than anywhere else. Guests with rentals through Vela Maui have access to swap windsurf gear for a board and paddle, or to add a set for an extra fee. Lessons available through our center provided by our partners at HST. Once you've got your balance down, bring it to the next level by surfing through paddle-power.

Scuba Diving / Snorkeling:

Enjoy the beautiful reefs and marine life by diving or snorkeling around the island, which could very well be the best place to enjoy the undersea world. Enjoy diving and snorkeling off the beaches many spots offer as much beautiful sights and biodiversity as expensive boat-chartered trips.

Hiking:

This can be a incredible experience on Maui with a wide range of conditions and terrain. A person can choose to hike the coastline, Haleakala Crater, or any number of exotic areas within the island. Get to where most visitors don't!

Biking:

There are also numerous tours available to Los Roques National Marine Park, Canaima (Angel Falls), Los Frailes (Islands off the north shore of the Island), jungle tours, round the island tours and many others. You can also spend the day with SCUBA, snorkeling, horseback riding, sail boat tours, catamaran drinking tours, hiking, bird watching, etc., etc.

Golfing:

There are many courses on Maui. Greens fees start at about $80 at the less expensive courses, or into the hundreds of dollars at the beautiful courses around the resort towns in the South Shore or West Maui. For a bargain visit the Pukalani Country Club (Upcountry) which offers great views from a different perspective at 1,100 feet above sea-level. Test your skills against the wind at the Maui Country Club located right in the heart of Sprecklesville.

 

Disc-Golfing:

You know what this is? OK. Check with the Vela Reservations office and ask for Karl to get more info.
