Maui Treasure Hunt with Maui Ocean Center Combo Package

Maui Treasure Hunt & Maui Ocean Center Combo Package – Maui is a paradise for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike – an ideal destination for families wanting to play together in the outdoors.  We’ve created a fantastic combination of the Hawaiian land and sea life adventure in one great package. We created Maui Treasure Hunt with Maui Ocean Center Combo Package, so now we’ll educate and entertain you and your children at the same time.

Our adventure starts in beautiful nature, in a Maui forest with the most amazing scenery. Hike in the woods, swim in the ocean and fulfill fun tasks while searching for a lost treasure. After this exciting Treasure Hunt, rest and relax because you can go on your own to the Maui Ocean center anytime. At your arrival, if you’re hungry you can enjoy lunch at the Seascape Maalaea restaurant (see kids menu below – not included in the price). Once you recharge your energy, explore our 750,000-gallon salt-water aquarium, 54-foot acrylic tunnel, and nearly 2,000 fish, rays and sharks – the largest one in the state along with 60 indoor and outdoor exhibits. Aptly named “The Hawaiian Aquarium,” the Maui Ocean Center is the only aquarium in the world dedicated to fostering understanding, wonder, and respect for Hawaii’s marine life. You can do both activities (Treasure Hunt and Aquarium visit) on different days, you can visit the Ocean center any day based on your schedule.

    We have a 4 year old, absolutely pirate-crazed son and a 6 year old maps/symbols obsessed daughter………so obviously they LOVED this hike/adventure. Our guide, Andrea, was great! She took the time to get to know each of the kids on the adventure and make sure they each had a fun time. The area of the island I hadn’t been before, is beautiful. The provided snacks and water were a good touch. I would recommend this to anyone with kids.

    Fun, New Experience
    My 8 year old twins loved their treasure hunt in the jungle with Captain Mark! My daughter said, “It was super awesome because we found treasure and went swimming in the river.” My son said, “It was super cool because we got to follow a trail and be the leaders to get treasure.” It was a great way to see another part of Maui that I’d never experienced before. Capt. Mark knew how to engage our children and had them hanging on his every word. We would highly recommend this experience for kids of all ages!

    Fun guided hike for kids
    This was a guided hike on the public trails in Iao Valley State Park. Our guide, Mark, was great and shared lots of little tidbits about the area. The hike has a treasure hunt theme for the kids with treasure maps, symbols to search for along the trail, and a treasure chest full of small trinkets at the end. Along the way you get to hike through amazing terrain, swim in the river, and learn a bit about the geology, botany, and history of Iao Valley. It would certainly be possible to hike this area for free without the guide; you’re paying for the fun treasure hunt for the kids and the guide’s knowledge. The best part is that the kids didn’t realize we were hiking – they just thought they were on a treasure hunt, and my husband and I got to enjoy a great hike without any complaints about how boring hiking is. 🙂 The treasure hunt is geared toward young kids, about ages 3-10, although my 13 year old still had a good time. If you don’t have young kids in your group I’d recommend just hiking on your own; this is very much a kid-oriented activity although the adults in the group will still enjoy the hike and watching the kids figure out the map and search for the symbols.

    Awesome Adventure for the family!
    So much fun! Our children were enthralled from the get go. They loved searching for clues in the tropical rain forest and felt like they were on a true adventure. The guide was great and attentive and patient. He made sure the kids were having fun and the adults. Wish we could do this sort of thing more often, not just on vacation. If your children seek adventure, in a surreal environment, then this is it!

    Beautiful and Fun Experience for All Ages
    This was such a fun experience! Our tour guide Mark was one of the best guides around. He was charismatic and awesome with our kids! The hike starts out in a beautiful park and only gets better. The hike is not hard at all but it keeps the kids engaged. They have a treasure map that they need to follow and look for markings (clues) along the way so that they know they are going the right way. We were able to pick some fresh guava to eat along the way and the kids are also supplied with small backpacks to use with treats and drinks in them. Swimming in the lagoon was a blast too. Some of the locals came out, so the kids were able to watch them jump into the lagoon from rocks high off the ground. The hike ends with finding a treasure chest with goodies in it for each child. My kids were so excited that they actually found a treasure! The kids then need to follow the map back to where we started. All in all, the hike takes around 3 hours to complete but the time flies by! It is money well spent and will supply a lifetime of memories for the kids and adults!

    “Had a Blast”
    On July 12, 2017 my 2 grandsons (ages 9 and 11) went on the Jungle Treasure Adventure. In their words they “Had a Blast”. When I asked them what they liked best they said “EVERYTHING”! Mark was great with everyone! I highly recommend this adventure!*****

    Kids favorite part of Maui!
    Our group included my husband and I, our 3 kids (11, 6, 4) and Grandma. Our guide, Mark, did a great job interacting with the kids and helping all of us safely navigate crossing water. The kids had fun taking turns “leading” and finding the next clue. The lagoon was so fun to swim in! We all wore water shoes, which was perfect. The hike was slow paced (but not too slow), so grandma and the 4 year old were able to take their time and enjoy themselves. Mark was great to chat with to get other info on the island. Booking and meeting up for the excursion went flawlessly. We had an action packed week of helicopter rides, snorkeling, cruise, parasailing, luau, etc….and the 6 & 4 year old still say this was their favorite part of the trip! Would highly recommend to families with small children!

    Gorgeous hike with a fun treasure hunt for the kids.
    We had a great time on our treasure hunt. We have 2 kids under 7 and they had a blast. We went with our whole family including grandparents and the tour guides were fantastic. The hike took us through a beautiful 2 mile stretch and the hunt kept the kids interested the whole time. We also got to swim in an amazing stream which the kids loved. Our tour guides were very knowledgeable about Hawaiian plant life and history which was a nice touch. We got to eat fresh guava off a tree. One of our favorite things we did in Maui. I definitely recommend it!
