Hawaii Land Tours 

Each of the infamously diverse Hawaiian Islands have a surplus of land activities to choose from. On a honeymoon vacation, two lovers can hike through lush jungles to a romantic Hawaii waterfall. Your teenagers will become thrill seekers while ziplining over incredible tropical scenery with coastal views, and you can easily take a group horseback riding tour while on vacation with your family! Spend a morning on a walking tour of Hawaii’s cultural history, and enjoy a Luau feast and Hula dance performance in the evening. Your husband will love spending hours perfecting his game on a 27-hole Hawaii golf course, while you lavish in luxury while shopping at one of the best outdoor shopping centers in Hawaii. 

The Island of Maui is referred to as the “Magic Isle” for many reasons! Here, guests can travel East on the Road to Hana and cruise through 620 curves and 59 bridges, and travel to the Upcountry areas to visit Makawao Town, Maui’s famous Lavender Farm, the Maui Winery, and Haleakala National Park. South Maui and West Maui offer visitors a variety of perfect areas to explore on a Hawaii land tour including ziplining, historic railroad adventures, coffee farm tours, marine sanctuaries, horseback riding, or 5-star golfing! On the Island of Oahu, visitors can explore Pearl Harbor, the Dole Pineapple Plantation, the Polynesian Cultural Center, a handful of world-class golf resorts, museums, historical sites and more. On the Big Island, guests can travel to Volcanoes National Park, ziplining adventures at Akaka Falls, incredible Luau performances, or a Big Island Grand Circle Tour. Kauai is the “Discovery Isle,” and guests will surely feel embraced in all its mysticism while on a Kauai movie sightseeing tour, ziplining above Poipu’s coastline, or while on a Waimea Canyon bicycle tour.

With an abundance of Hawaii land activities available for everyone, what will you choose? Make the most of your vacation in Hawaii, and plan ahead with one of our Maui Sights & Treasures experts for amazing deals on Hawaii land tours and packages.

Meet Our Founder

Aloha, my name is Elaine Cuaresma, and I am the owner of Maui Sights & Treasures.

I have always been passionate about exciting outdoor tours and adventurous activities. I grew up in Lake Tahoe, so we were lucky to enjoy skiing during the winter months, and hiking in the mountains during the summer months. Our family always had a boat so waterskiing was also a big part of the fun growing up in Lake Tahoe. Activities have always been my passion! It was a wonderful environment to be raised in.

It wasn’t a surprise to me, my family, or friends when I started working for AAA in the travel department helping members plan their vacations. I loved helping guests plan and map out their vacation adventures! It was always such a rewarding experience helping guests plan all the fun details of their dream vacations. That’s when I first knew that I wanted to build a bright career in the travel industry, sharing my experiences, and helping others customize perfect vacation plans.

When I came to Maui for vacation in 1979, I met a local boy, and fell deeply in love with him and the Island of Maui. I never left! Entering the travel industry on Maui felt right and was a perfect fit for me. I soon became a concierge specialist for the Stouffers Hotel in Wailea reserving all activities ranging from snorkel adventures to helicopters tours for hotel guests. It was so much fun, and amazing because I got to try everything I sold. Wow! What a great job! What a wonderful perk to be able to try all the activities Maui has to offer.Staff Photo | Maui Sights and Treasures sells discounted tour tickets for Maui

After my husband and I had our two children, I decided to open up my own travel company which allowed me to follow my career passion. As an entrepreneur, I had more freedom to spend more time with our growing children, and I felt more motivated than ever to share with clients all the best Hawaii has to offer. I opened up Maui Sights & Treasures in 1992 at Sugar Beach Resort and have been here ever since! I’m so blessed to be able to spend my days doing what I love, with a wonderful staff that has been with us for over 18 years and counting. Over the years we grew, and added a snorkel store and gift shop at our flagship location. Our most recent addition is renting SUP (stand–up-paddle boards) one of the most vastly growing sports in the world. We encourage everyone to try it!

Our company mission is to find the best activity tours for our guests, so they may have the best vacation memories and experiences. With years of local experience, a fabulous growing network, and the opportunity to meet so many people from all around the world, it is more than fulfilling for us to be working with guests and doing what we love.

When you’re planning your perfect Hawaiian holiday, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions! We love sharing our ideas and making suggestions, and would be so happy if you’d stay in touch and let us know all about your favorite activities and tours. We encourage you to take a look through our website and find a host of the best tours and activities to do in Hawaii.

Mahalo for reading, and have a beautiful vacation in paradise!

Maui Friday Towne Parties and Festivals

Fridays on Maui are also known as Friday town parties or block parties. Each Friday on Maui four different towns on the Island have block parties.

* KIHEI IS HOSTING the 4th Firdays now, and will be held at Azeka's (Mauka - volcano side). they will be closing Piikea st. from Longs to Safeway. Lots of food and entertainment!!  .

The First Friday of the month  is called 1st Friday in Wailuku. This is where it all began over five years ago. Main street in  Wailuku is about 3 blocks of small Hawaiian boutiques, cafes and jewelry stores. The merchants of Wailuku in central Maui needed a boost to help their small businesses and sought help from the county of Maui to help co-sponsor a block party to bring locals and guest alike together. This family friendly event starts at 5pm the 1st Friday of the month. Guest filled the streets and enjoy food booths, crafts ,and amazing music from Jazz to Hawaiian. Maui Thing, one of businesses on Market St.,  has a stage in front of the store where local bands perform or maybe you will catch one of their many fashion shows. For more info go to: www.economic.development@mauicounty.gov  or if you're on the mainland watch live at www.wailukucam.com

Second Friday is in Lahaina Town also known as art night in Lahaina.  Lahaina will have more culture and history to share. The Baldwin home holds a candlelit tour of the property and also includes a tour of the Wo Hing museum. The story of the Hawaiian quilts is on display in front of the Baldwin House. All the Lahaina restaurants offer great pupus (appetizers),  menus,  and drink specials. Every park offers Hawaiian music to Rock and Roll, so make sure to bring your beach chair. Lahaina Town Action Committee works together with all the businesses to make sure this is a family friendly 5-8pm event.

Third Friday is in Makawao  up country Maui. Makawao  is in Maui's up country area  which is also known for its rodeos  and cowboys. So pull on your  cowboy boots and head up country on the third Friday to enjoy music ,food and shopping with local crafters. (if it's raining....find someting else to do...... Makawao is "Up Country" and is mostly green pastures and lush tropical flowers ....which means it rains up there on a regular basis)

Fourth Friday on Maui, is held in Kihei !! From 6-9pm. Kihei is on the South end of Maui and on the 4th Fridays,  Azeka's Shopping Center Mauka (mountain side) will offer Music, food and crafters'. We are all looking foward to this new event for Kihei. The first 4th friday drew over 5,000 people! We haven't hear yet how many this last one drew in January. I will share picures and video of the event soon. There was lots of fun things for children to participate in as well as lots of food trucks and vendors selling everything from frozen yogourt to plate lunches and waffles. Liek they do in Europe...there were many tables in the street itself. Tho this month it they were longer tables and not the cute 2 and 4 tops. We sat on the Grass and enjoyed our plates. (I got the Teriyaki Chicken plate and my Dad got the chow Fun which is a very popular item here in Hawaii)

"Thanks so much Elaine for all your help. Your suggestion to go on Ocean Riders around the Island of Lanai was awesome. We saw Whales, Dolphins and amazing sea life snorkeling. You knew exactly the right tour for our family. It was the best day ever!"

- Pete Sela, Lake Tahoe, CA


"Mahalo for the discount and arranging our excursion. Most of my gang of friends had never been on a whale watching trip before and I’ve turned every one of them into whale fanatics. . I recommended you and them to several people who were interested in going whale watching. We came back to snow in Seattle and are ready to turn around and come back to paradise. We hope to return next year and this time we will stop by the shop and of course use you for another whale watching trip which is my favorite thing in the world to do. Mahalo, Vani "

- Vani , Seattle Washington

Thanks Elaine your the best "
