New Year’s on the Island
Arrive to the island just in time for some of the most exciting wildlife viewing opportunities. New Year’s on Maui coincides with peak whale watching season, when humpbacks whales escape frigid Alaskan waters in favor of the tropical islands. A host of boat tours in the area get you out on the water alongside these magnificent creatures, where you can observe their movements in their natural habitats. Many of these tours also combine snorkeling and dolphin watching, making it an exciting water adventure! Of course, Maui’s year-round warm weather allows for all the other activities the island is so well known for, such as swimming, sunbathing, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, and so much more!
Celebrate the New Year
You won’t have to sacrifice any of the New Year’s in Maui festivities during your getaway. Oceanfront fireworks, a midnight cruise, and live music held at various locales around the island keep things festive for your Maui New Year’s celebration!
Fireworks are a popular way to celebrate the new year in the Hawaiian Islands, so whether you attend an organized event or simply take a drive through one of the residential neighborhoods, you will most likely see quite a display of colorful celebration throughout the evening. For one of the larger and more popular fireworks displays, head to the beach fronting the Grand Wailea. With its spectacular midnight display, sinking your toes in the sand alongside the ocean and watching the show unfold is a great way to end the current year and ring in the new. Stake your claim along Wailea Beach and settle in for magnificent views.
For something more upscale than fireworks along the shoreline, a handful of charter companies offer special New Year’s Eve cruises, where you can celebrate the holiday in style on the water. Check out Pacific Whale Foundation for New Year’s Eve cocktail cruises that are suitable for families traveling with children. They offer a party at sea, complete with open-air seating to view fireworks, food, music, dancing, and a midnight champagne toast! What says island getaway more than a tropical boat excursion?
For those who love the idea of celebrating on the water but are interested in something geared exclusively toward adults, Trilogy and Ali’i Nui’s both offer New Year’s Eve fireworks cruises that include food and drinks and are adults only. If you’re set on spending New Year’s on the water, be sure to book early, as these tend to sell out quickly!
Another option for closing out the year in a distinctly Hawaiian way is to attend one of the New Year’s Eve luaus that take place around the island. Feasting on local Hawaiian dishes, being entertained through Hawaiian and other Polynesian dances and music, and toasting to the end of another year is a memorable way to spend your New Year’s in Maui. Drums of the Pacific at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort in Kaanapali and the Andaz Maui in Wailea’s Feast at Mokapu are a couple of the special luaus offered on New Year’s Eve, as well as the host of companies that offer luaus throughout the year.
It’s easy to find a special way to ring in the new year on your getaway to Maui. Or, plan for a casual evening in enjoying the luxury of your New Year’s rental when you book a stay in one of our upscale vacation homes. Start the year out on the right foot on the beautiful island of Maui!
