Kid Friendly Attractions in Maui

There are plenty of kid-friendly activities that families can enjoy while vacationing on Maui. We have put together a list of water and non-water options for parents to choose from.

The Maui Ocean Center is consistently ranked as one of Maui's top attractions. Kids will enjoy the shallow reef touch pool, the Hawaiian sea turtles, and underwater tunnel that allow guests to walk through a tank full of sharks, rays, tuna, and other large marine life. Visitors can also reserve whale watches or snorkel cruises to the remote island of Molokini from the nearby Ma'alaea harbor.

Children should also enjoy an introductory surf lesson. Classes are taught at various beaches in Kihei and Lahaina. You may also opt to rent boogie boards or snorkel equipment for the day from Snorkel Bob's and head to popular beaches such as Ulua Beach or Ka'anapali Beach.

Sticking to land attractions, look to explore Iao Valley or plan a drive out to Hana to see Maui's beautiful landscape. Parents may also want to consider a drive up to the top of Haleakala to see the sunrise or sunset. On your way up the volcano, make a stop at Rice Park for some box sledding down the steep hills.
