Maui Activities for Kids

Are you coming to Maui with kids. Here are some answers to the question: - What To Do In Maui With Kids? Maui activities for Kids are often not that much different from things parents might do on their own. At the very least you could say that being on these experiences with your children and watching as they have fun would probably prove more enjoyable than doing any number of 'grown up' activities without them. Some Maui activities for kids are age sensitive, or even height or weight sensitive as their are certain parameters that are important for safety and enjoyment. At the break in this page below, you will see some of the 'time tested' activities that will answer the original question of - What To Do In Maui With Kids?

  • You can't ask for a better playground than to be on Maui with kids and Maui activities for kids are great for the whole family. Think back to some of the vacations you may have taken as a child. In all likelihood you may remember them in vivid detail, or at least certain aspects of them. These are the experiences you are providing for your children now and you couldn't have chosen a more perfect island for a vacation with your children then Maui.

    Here are 10 great answers to the question: What to do in Maui with Kids?

    • Take them on a Submarine Ride to the bottom of the ocean. Educational, informative and Fun (need to be 3' tall).
    • Go on a Treasure Hunt through the jungle. Enjoy the outside while hiking through a forest, swimming in a lagoon and all the time looking for lost treasure.
    • Visit the Maui Ocean Center. Enjoy the giant aquariums. Watch a scuba dive show. Touch a turtle.
    • Take a Surfing Lesson. Every child will love this. Who doesn't want to be a surfer.
    • Enjoy a Whale Watch in season. This is educational, fun and exciting.
    • Pretend your in a Western and jump on a Horse. Minimum age for Horseback Riding is generally 7.
    • Parasail Rides are a big deal for a kid. 5 years old and up.
    • How about a special Childs Spa facial or massage.
    • Glass Bottom Boat Ride. This is different than a Sub Ride. This floats on the top of the water. Great for even really young children.
    • Roll down a hill in an Aqua Ball (whats that?). Must be 5 years of age.

  • Tom's Tips - Maui Kids Tours

    Vacation times are very special for children. As you know they dwell on the topic of their upcoming vacation for weeks prior and their anticipation provides almost as much fun for them in a virtual sense as the actual vacation. Their are many tours they can participate in on Maui but my personal preference would be to take them on activities that would accomplish two goals: First, the activities chosen would involve both the parents and the children at the same time, and secondly that the activity in addition to being tons of fun would also include some sort of educational or learning component. I think that it is often so difficult in this modern day and age to find quality time to spend between parents and children. When the two do have time to be together both children and adults often find ways intentional or not, to veer off into a cyberspace device and subsequently miss the moment. Vacations are that special time when patterns routed in normal life can be broken and a new paradigm can be established at least during that period of time.
