Last day afternoon excusion near airport.

Has anyone done a afternnon excrsion near the airport ?/ our flight does not leave until 8:30 p.m We have to be out of our Condo by noon. We would prefer not to get wet, no place to change but the airport. Thank you for your time.

Not sure what you mean by excursion...do you have a rental car? If so pack a lunch and head over to Iao Needle. Just before that is a park (Kipaniwai) that you can eat your lunch at. You can also go to the park just past Paia and watch the surfers.

Try a search of the forums for late flights for some more ideas of what to do while you wait for your flight.

If you watch the surfers, then continue east and you're on the RTH (Road To Hana). Could eat at Charlie's, go about 10 miles and you'll come to the 1st water fall.

Or you save going up to the summit for your last day and do that in the day time. From the airport area, you're near the entrance of the park. You would go to the top, look at the crater, temps will be cool, but not freezing.

So my ideas would be a partial RTH, or the summit in the day time.

go for a drive up to Kula, check out the Surfing Goat Dairy, the Lavender Farm, or drive to Ulupalakua Ranch, have lunch at their general store (great burgers, picnic style), do a wine tasting across the road, then coffee at Grandma's Coffee House in Kula...

I'd go hang out in Pai'a.

I vote for an upcountry trip. I did this with visitors during their last day on island after checking out of their condo. Grandma's Coffee House has the best cinnamon rolls on the island!!

All good ideas above. Also Maui Ocean Center has a central location.

Watch the wind surfers at Ho'okipa Beach; there is a lookout where you can snag a good view while remaining close to your car ( www.vthawaii.com/MAUI/2007/Maui16f.html )...same for beachside (with luck).
