Why It’s a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare from Oakland to Maui starts from $984 with taxes for travel in mid-November (Hawaiian). Add to that $211 per person including tax for three nights at Lahaina Shores Beach Resort, and you’d be paying $1,195 for just the airfare and accommodations. For $514 less than that, this package covers the flight and three nights’ accommodations, plus round-trip airport transfers and all taxes and fees.
More Additional activities are available for a fee, including a trip up 10,023-foot-high Haleakala Volcano to watch the sunrise (includes coffee and pastries) for from $96 per person, and a half-day catamaran cruise out to Molokini, a half-sunken crater, to snorkel the crystal-clear waters for from $109.50 per person. Upgrade to an Oceanfront Studio for from $93 per person. Extend your stay for from $39 per person per night. Note that airfare may change, based on availability.
