"We are receiving an overwhelming positive response from Maui residents and visitors who have experienced the new Kapalua Adventure Center and Mountain Outpost tours," said Adam Quinn, director of resort activities. "The Kapalua Adventure Center is quickly becoming the focal point of excitement and activity for the resort."
