Visit Honolua Bay on a snorkeling or scuba diving trip by boat, which will sometimes include one or more spots along the west Maui coast. Independent visitors should swim out some distance from the beach for the best visibility. Expect to see plentiful coral, reef and tropical fish, turtles, rays, and even pods of spinner dolphins. In the winter, storms bring swells creating a long and powerful right point break at the bay. Spectators can watch the action from an overlook on the east cliffs.
Honolua Bay is also included in some guided sightseeing tours on land, which will often include other popular attractions such as Iao Valley State Monument, Nakalele Blowhole, and Olivine Pools. Opt for a private tour to fully customize your itinerary.
