The Four Seasons Maui is breathtaking in and of itself. Surrounded by white beaches, perfect azure and crystalline waters with aquatic wildlife, and volcanic terrain, it’s pretty much a paradise on earth… just perfect for lazy vacations. But, if you’re not one of those that can sit still and are an adventure seeker at heart, activity planning is on a new level with their Unforgettable Events Calendar. The calendar offers an array of activities for the adventure traveler looking for a more rugged and organic exploration of the island, but still retaining the Four Seasons’ signature services (ooh la la).

In the past, they’ve had an ashtanga yoga retreat, a wine dinner hosted by Napa Valley vineyard Opus One, and a Stars Under the Stars event at the Maui Film Festival, but we think the best is this cool surf adventure!

Led by big wave surfer and Hawaiian native Dave Kalama, his December Surf Camp, which runs from December 4-9, takes guests through for days of surfing and varieties including wave paddle surfing, canoe surfing, long boarding and windsurfing. In case you don’t know who he is, Kalama co-developed tow-in surfing with Laird Hamilton, Darrick Doerner and Buzzy Kerbox, giving them—and sport enthusiasts–the ability to catch the largest and fastest ocean waves.

Intermediate and advanced surfers will benefit from learning in one of the best pacific surf spots and from Kalama’s lifetime of experience in surfing and water sports. Participants in the December program not only benefit from escaping the cold weather, but may also have the opportunity to witness whale migration, which begins in December and runs through April.
