When is the Best Time to Fly from Seattle to Maui?
Don’t worry, Seattle to Maui flights are not tied down to a time of year, with airfare prices remaining consistent throughout the months with a slight spike during the summer and winter seasons. So when do you consider booking your SEA to Maui trip? It all depends on the visitor. There’s never a wrong time to reserve your direct flights to the Valley Isle, as the islands are blessed with perfect weather, blue skies and comfortable climes all year long. Wave heights will increase on northern facing shores during winter months, and southern facing shores during summer months—but that's about it in terms of seasonal mood swings.
What Airports Do You Use When Flying From SEA to OGG?
Seatle to Maui flights are made easy with Hawaiian, which offers non-stop flights to Maui, meaning the only two airports in your journey will be the Seattle Tacoma International Airport (SEA) in Tacoma, WA, and the Kahalui Airport (OGG) in Kahalui, HI. There are also options for flights with a short layover in sunny Honolulu—at the Daniel K. Inouye Airport on Oahu—which will serve as a short and breezy break from your Seattle and Maui travels.
How Long is the Flight from Seattle to Maui
If you are traveling nonstop from SeaTac to Maui, your flight
will be around six hours. Select flights with layovers in Honolulu can expect to spend an hour or two in the airport—long enough to stretch your legs, grab a drink from Starbucks and pick up a local snack—and should expect their voyage to Maui to take eight or nine hours. Time in the air can be spent perfecting your itinerary, reading a good book about Hawaiian culture or history or just getting some rest as you’ll want to hit the ground running—possibly to the beach of your dreams—once you land in Hawaiian soil.
Interesting Facts About Maui
If you’re headed from Seattle to Kahului, it’s good to know that the island of Maui is really a part of a larger unit of islands called Maui Nui. This includes Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe—which is not accessible to visitors and locals—and Molokini Crater. Lanai is so close to Maui that you can actually take a ferry to its pristine shores—and with a four-wheel drive vehicle visitors can make the most of their visit to the island, from visiting the fascinating Shipwreck Beach on the northern coastline of Lanai to checking out the culture-rich site of Keahiakawelo, a rock garden steeped in Hawaiian lore and legend. Molokai is also considered one of the best places to visit in Hawaii if you’d like to truly get away from city life, and it’s a great place to see for a day trip. And snorkelers will love Molokini Crater, situated just off of the southwest coast of Maui—you can actually see it from beaches in the area, like Makena Beach and Maluaka Beach.
