This world famous destination is a marine life sanctuary, and features some of the clearest waters in the South Pacific. The curve of the islet protects its waters from the open sea, making it the perfect place for wildlife to flourish. The crater is one of three volcanic calderas in the world, and it is home to over 250 species of fish.

disaster relief

In August of 2023, Maui was devastated by wildfires that destroyed the historic town of Lahaina and displaced countless families and small businesses across the island. 2024 Maui students will have the opportunity participate in the disaster recovery effort with our partner outfitters in whatever capacity the needs display at that time. We are grateful to help play a small role in giving back to the beautiful place that has welcomed Moondance students + leaders since 2014.
