Driving Instructions

30 minutes from the


  • To get to our meeting area starting from almost anywhere on Maui, you are going to end up on Highway #37 (Haleakala Highway) that starts near the airport.
  • Take Highway #37 up the hill for 13.5 miles to “Rice Park”, a small park on the left side. Continue another 1/4 mile and then turn left and head uphill on Highway #377 East which is clearly marked.
  • Continue on 377 East for about a 1/4 mile and then take the first right onto “Waipoli Rd”
  • Drive up “Waipoli Rd.” for 1.3 miles. After you cross a cattle guard and go through an open gate you are almost there. Look for our Paraglide Maui signs and our ‘office’ – a green picnic table with a red umbrella.
  • ***Attention GPS users: We highly recommend entering “Alii Kula Lavender Farm” (our neighbors) in your GPS or you may end up being directed many miles past our meeting point. We are only 1.3 miles up Waipoli Rd.***
  • Please park in the gravel parking area near the trees. If you think you are lost, call +1 808-874-5433.
