Outdoor Activities- Things To Do In Maui In October
Fall is the end of parasailing season on Maui. Adventure Maui can take you on a parasailing trip where you will see the island from fifty feet in the air. This is one of the best things to do in Maui in November. No special skills are required; you just sit back and let the giant chute carry you into the sky. The ride last about ten minutes and you will have a panoramic view of the mountains and sea.
Fall is also a great time to take a drive down the Road to Hana, which is also one of our favorite things to do in Maui in November.
