Day Trips to Molokai -- It's possible to visit Molokai's famous leper colony (officially known as Kalaupapa National Historical Park) as a day trip from Maui. You won't be able to squeeze in the exhilarating mule ride down the 1,600-foot cliffs (they start at 8am), but you didn't want to sit on your ass all day long anyway, now did you? (Sorry, bad pun.) Paragon Air (tel. 808/244-3356; www.paragonair.com) offers a $285 package deal that includes round-trip airfare from Maui's Kahului Airport to Molokai's Kalaupapa Airport, a 4-hour tour, lunch, and drinks. All visitors must be at least 16 years old. No tours are given on Sunday, when the national park is closed.
