Haleakala Sunrise Reservations: How to Get It (Plus Maybe We Can Help)

 

Looking for last minute Haleakala Sunrise Reservations? You need a reservation as of February 2017 to watch the sunrise on the summit of Haleakala. If you book it early and plan ahead, they're easy enough to get an online reservation on the Haleakala National Park website. Keep in mind though that sometimes you have to book them months in advance.

We also might be able to help you! Scroll down OR click here and fill out the form for more info.

The reservation fee itself is a measly $1, which you'll book with a credit card. There is also an additional park entrance fee, but it's worth it.

Note: To enter the Summit District of Haleakala National Park between 3am and 7am, the reservation holder must be present and show both the one-day sunrise reservation receipt (for that day) and a photo ID. Note that a reservation is not required if visiting prior to 3am and after 7am. If you want to want enter the park before 3am or after 7am, you can do so without a sunrise reservation; you only need the special permit if you enter the park during that time of day.

Remember: You have to secure a reservation at least two days in advance.

If you don't get the reservation though, you could miss out on a life-changing experience. Watching the sunrise on the Haleakala summit can be one of the most beautiful sights you could witness.

The park opens a handful of reservations online a couple days in advance, but if you're not quick, you won't get it. The few people that do get those reservations usually have them booked within several minutes of when they're released and then they're gone.

Also, if you do get a reservation, leave yourself plenty of time and make sure you leave early enough. Parking spaces still get tight and you'll have to leave a little early if you want a spot in the upper parking lot of the two parking lots. There still is limited parking, despite the reservation system in place.

Here's a tip: since the sunrise time changes year-round, check on the current sunrise time to make sure you get to the summit for the sunrise hours. And don't just think that they will wave you through without a reservation; they check everyone for a reservation at the entrance station to Haleakala National Park.

It also wouldn't hurt to check the weather conditions on the top of the dormant volcano. You'd be surprised, but it can snow up at the Haleakala summit during the winter time and usually does a couple times a year.

If you're not able to get a reservation, we might be able to help. Fill out the form with accurate information (this is important) and we'll get in touch with you as soon as we can.
