KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
PICK UP & DROP OFF: This tour starts early, so we’ll pick you up at your hotel, provide you with a warm jacket, and bring you directly to the summit of Haleakalā National Park. At the end of a glorious day, we’ll then drop you off at your hotel.
CLOTHING: Layer up!
For the sunrise tour, cozy jackets will be provided when you arrive at Skyline. We recommend you dress in warm layers and wear pants, a jacket or sweatshirt, socks, and closed-toe shoes so you are warm enough while viewing the sunrise. Temperatures at the summit of Haleakalā are routinely in the 30s and 40s.
For the zipline adventure, pants or shorts and a t-shirt are best.
SHOES: For your safety, we ask that you wear shoes with a fully-enclosed toe and heel, like an athletic or hiking shoe. Shoes must be snug. (No Teva or Keen-type sandals with open sections or 5-finger shoes.)
GLASSES: Glasses and sunglasses may be worn - just be sure to bring your strap.
CAMERA/CELLPHONE CAMERA: You will definitely want to capture the beauty of the sunrise on the top of Haleakalā, so bring your camera to the sunrise. For ziplining - we recommend that you securely strap it to yourself. There are GoPro cameras available to rent on each tour.
DITCH THE PACK: You can bring your backpack, but we'll lock it up for you while you zip.
PROTECT YOUR SKIN: Bring your reef-safe sunscreen. We also recommend wearing clothes that help block the sun.
WHAT ELSE TO BRING: A reusable water bottle and sunglasses.
WEATHER & REFUNDS: Weather at the summit can vary widely, and inclement weather can impact or limit sunrise views. Every sunrise atop Haleakalā is a unique, one of a kind experience. Some mornings are clear, while some are clouded in. Unfortunately, we cannot provide refunds based on inclement, cloudy, or rainy conditions at the summit as they are outside of Skyline Hawaii’s control. But, we hope any visit to Haleakalā National Park and the summit of this legendary volcano are experiences guests will remember and revere as generations have before - even under adverse weather conditions.
