On your honeymoon you don’t need to worry about planning every details, which is why these snorkel tours include snorkel gear, breakfast, lunch, reef safe sunscreen and of course a good time!

One tour will take you over Hana where you see the lush green tropical rainforest and lava tubes. Another gives you the grand tour of the West Maui mountains, the west coast of Maui and Molokai. If you come during whale season you can see humpback whales from a birds eye view!

Pick a location where you can watch the iconic Maui sunset after your luau dinner! Some luaus even include couples dancing where you can slow dance along the water to traditional Hawaiian music.
Road to Hana
Yes this might test your ability to let your new wife/husband drive and not be a backseat driver, but it’s also one of the most magical places you could visit on your honeymoon! Hana has so many hiking destinations and waterfalls that you will want to get an audio guide or app to help you know where to stop and what to explore. You could even try something different and go the back way, starting with breakfast upcountry at Grandma’s Cafe in Kula, then head towards Hana. Or start with Hana and end with wine tasting at the Ulupalakua winery in upcountry Maui.
You can be as adventurous or as chill as you want on this trip, stopping at unique beaches like Black Sand, Red Sand and Hamao. The little town offer a small general store, some food trucks and fuel, so fill up before heading back to your hotel.
