My daughter is wheelchair bound but is able to walk short distances. We are going to Maui in December and wondered if anyone has any fun suggestions she can do while we are there.

I haven’t been personally but I asked my friend from Hawaii and she says that this guide is quite accurate: http://wheelchairtraveling.com/maui-hi-wheelchair-accessible-guide-to-paradise/

Maui is ADA compliant being part of the US so taking the chair places will be relatively easy. Definitly do a Luau. They often include a meal and people have a lot of fun at them. If finances permit consider doing a boat or helicopter tour. Maui is a beautiful island. Snorkeling and boating is very big in Maui. Haleakala National Park is a largely visited place. This is where you will find the East Maui Volcano, which makes up 75% of the island. If you have a powerchair or scooter this will be an easier visit and you can do more exploring.
Also, if you have the time and finances consider doing some island hopping. The inter-island flights are not that expensive and would give you the chance to experience the different cultures of each island.
If you have specific questions or would like some help planning send me a message and we will take a look at specifically what your daughter can do.

My name is Jasmine and I’m from the island of Oahu, Hawaii. I’ve only been to Maui a couple times, but I thought I could help potentially point you in the right direction…
I found a website called, “Maui Goodness“. You can click the link and it should direct you to a web page called, “Best Wheelchair Accessible Activities on Maui”. On it, you can find information related to getting around the island, where to stay, what to do, and some other resources.
Some fun things that I think you will all enjoy is Whale Watching, watching the sunrise at Haleakala (a dormant volcano and the highest peak on the island), and attending a luau. Of course you can find other amazing activities to do while on your trip. I hope this resource helps!
