What To Expect

Head out to some secret beaches that the large tour can’t access on this group snorkel tour in Lahaina. Your crew and captain take care of all the navigation and logistics, taking you to two of the best reefs for spotting turtles, octopus, dolphins, and much more.

Easily meet your boat and group at the departure point in Lahaina, and then get settled in on your boat. You don’t need to bring your own snorkel gear, since the boat provides it. Breakfast and snacks are also included, and you can BYOB if you like. If you want to rent a wetsuit top, they are available.

Another top feature of this tour is that your ticket fee also goes to help with the whale entanglement response team on Maui, and supports local and global marine research.

Loved seeing dolphins and going to multiple snorkel sites. Crew was knowledgeable and ver friendly. Great snacks aboard boat. Ride was bumpy, but expected given the small boat. Much more enjoyable and intimate experience than the giant snorkeling boats. This would be a great trip for experienced snorkelers and novices alike.

Fantastic adventure!
Karen_J, Feb 2024
The time for whale watching and all the information about whales was wonderful! The snorting location was perfect. A fantastic time and a great memory of my Maui trip.
Very memorable experience!
Namrata_A, Dec 2023
Our experience was really amazing! Our tour guide and captain were very enthusiastic and informative. Although one person in our group didn't know how to swim, they were very patient and helped her snorkel. We were lucky to see 4 Humpback whales and pods of Spotted and Spinner dolphins! I also saw a turtle in the snorkel spot. The snorkeling location was very beautiful.

Emma and Shannon made it a very personal and enjoyable experience. They were both very knowledgeable of the area and oceanic wild life. We saw a dolphin pod and numerous turtles as well as a great number of fish in the reef whilst we were snorkelling. Overall it was a great day and fun experience and I can’t wait to return and do it again!
Definitely Book this Boat!

Captain Lily and first mate Lexi were fantastic. We had a perfect day, great music along the way and Captain Lily shared details about the island we would be snorkeling near. An intimate group which made the experience that much more memorable.

Thanks so much!
Turtles and Dolphins- yes please!
LeAnn_P, Jul 2023
We booked this trip because it offered an opportunity to snorkel with turtles as well as beautiful fish, with a good chance of seeing dolphins. This did not disappoint! Not only did we snorkel with turtles - there were scores and scores of them of all shapes and sizes! What an amazing treat! Then when we headed to Lana’i there was a “pod” of spinner dolphins- but the pod must have had at least 50 in it’s group! Such a magical trip!

The under water man made reef where the turtles congregate to get their shells cleaned by fish was amazing. I saw at least a dozen turtles big and small. It was fascinating to see how the ruins of the pier became absorbed by nature.

Fun activity with lots of fresh air.
Michael_C, Jul 2023
Relaxing day. Guides took care of us and were very attentive. Snorkeling was great and lots of sea life. Be prepared to pay for parking.

Had a blast! Best day of our Maui trip
James_K, Jul 2023
Amazing, insider insights on best snorkel sights from expert Cruise captain. Just the right amount of time to explore two reefs, and enough space to rest on the boat. They were really knowledgeable about the waters and we all had a great time!
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Thanks so much!
Amazing experience
LoganV, Jul 2023
We went out and saw much more than we bargained for. We saw lots of turtles and reef sharks that were at a distance so it was not scary(which I am terrified of sharks). Haha. I would highly recommend

This trip was our favorite snorkel adventure ever!
Lori_W, Jul 2023
We have gone on many snorkel boat outings and this was our favorite! Casey and Emma were the BEST guides! They took great care of everyone, called everyone by their first name the entire trip, rocked awesome tunes and were good stewards of the ocean (picked up nets and other trash a couple of times). We saw awesome marine life including spinner dolphins, fish, and tons of turtles. Would recommend this trip to everyone!

An amazing experience
Dovid_B, Jul 2023
We had an amazing time! Emma and Casey were so helpful and nice and we saw so much wildlife! We saw dozens of dolphins, swam with turtles, and had fun on the boat with the rest of the tour. They even brought homemade cookies as a treat for everyone, besides the regular food. Highly highly recommend

Spectacular and marvelous! The guides did a great job and I highly recommend this trip for anyone who wants an unique Maui snorkeling experience. We also saw a pod of hundreds of spinner dolphins. The snacks were great too!

Beautiful trip
LauriAnne_F, Jul 2023
The captain and her assistant were really nice and included me since I was a solo traveller. They brought us to two great snorkeling spots where we could enjoy the reef and marine life. We encountered dolphins at the end of the trip and it was spectacular ! It was on a zodiac boat.

Thanks so much!
Our best day in Maui
Wayne_D, Jul 2023
Lilly and Casey were great! On the ride to Lania we saw a huge pod of spinner dolphins. At Lanai we saw amazing fish, and even spotted a lobster and a cowrie shell. When we got back to Maui in our second snorkeling spot we saw seven sea turtles. The snacks were wonderfully fresh and really hit the spot. This was our BEST day in Maui. We HIGHLY recommend it.
