Maui Family Activities by Age - Maui Surfer Girls

Maui Family Activities by Age

Maui is a hugely popular family destination, and with so many activities to choose from, it can be a bit overwhelming to research what your family can participate in depending on your children’s ages!  We’ve created this guide of a wide variety of family friendly activities, all around the island, that can help you get started on planning your Maui vacation.  We’ve included age, height and weight restrictions (where appropriate), as well as locations, hours and 2023 prices.  (All of these are subject to change!) 

These descriptions are for paid, reserved activities, but there are also many beaches, hiking, and parks to explore with kids and families.  Some of the activities do sell out in advance, so you may want to reserve your spot prior to arriving on Maui, especially during popular family travel times (read: summer, spring break, Thanksgiving Christmas holiday, or any week with a holiday in it!)
