Avoid Waking Early With An Afternoon West Maui Snorkel!

Hawaiian vacations won’t be complete without seeing the wonder of its local underwater ecosystem. Enjoy it more by seeing the magnificent sea creatures with an Afternoon West Maui Snorkel!

A tropical paradise, teeming with life, full of exotic fishes, colorful corals, and diverse sea creatures such as turtles, dolphins, and whales, will entice you all day. Passing up the opportunity to see it up close is a big mistake and, if you’re not a morning person, it’s a good thing that West Maui offers afternoon snorkeling!

Catch the beautiful afternoon sun at sea while gazing at the majestic dolphins chasing the waves at the wake of your boat’s path. Scenic views of whales catching their breath on the surface after herding their meal or chilling with the turtles while admiring the allure of the corals and fishes.

Hop on the Boat For an Afternoon Snorkel Tour on Maui

Not exactly a morning person? This snorkel trip is for you! With an afternoon departure time and duration of 3.5 hours, you can take the morning to relax, then hop on the boat and do some of Maui’s best snorkeling. 

Once you’re on board, the captain and crew will transport you to one of the most well-known snorkeling spots in West Maui (depending on conditions). Depending on the day, you could get a chance to interact closely with the local Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, vibrant tropical fish, stunning coral reefs, and a host of other surprises. 

There is an open bar on board, and pupus (appetizers) are provided, making it an ideal afternoon activity where you relax with nature. No need to get up early, allowing you to enjoy your morning routine while waiting for departure. Finally, we’ll ensure you will be back before supper!

Afternoon West Maui Snorkel Details

Departure Preparations

Enjoy one of Maui’s scenic beaches, Ka’anapali beach, as you prepare for departure. Just make sure to arrive early since the boat leaves at 12:30 PM, prime time for peak summer heat, so don’t forget to use sunblock. Tans are nice, but sunburns hurt a lot! 

Sea Maui features an easy-to-find check-in spot at The Whaler’s Village Shopping Center. It is the only boat that has a specific place on the shore. You’ll find the kiosk between Leilani’s and Hula Grill on the beach as you walk inside The Whaler’s village.

The Crew

Our captains have extensive experience traveling the seas of Maui; not only that, all crew members are trained lifeguards with CPR certificates under their belt. Our guests’ safety is our priority, so rest assured that all of you are in safe hands!

The Catamarans

Catamarans are boats with two hulls interconnected with a bridge deck where most activities are done. It’s the best boat for sailing seas with huge waves since it’s designed to reduce wave-induced motion and use only a small amount of power for propulsion. Also, it’s the best boat for wavy afternoon dives!

Trip Inclusions

You won’t have to worry about what drinks to bring on board as there will be a Premium open bar. In addition, complimentary juice, water, Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, and lemonade will be offered to all of our guests.

This afternoon snorkeling trip includes pupus (appetizers) for the guests onboard. It’s a trip with eyes filled with stunning marine life underwater and a stomach full of delicious food.

If you have some allergies to certain foods, don’t hesitate to inform us, so we can prepare your food for the whole adventure. Furthermore, we can ask Cafe Jai to accommodate your special food request ahead of time to have a smooth sailing experience.

How Many People can the Afternoon West Maui Snorkel Accommodate?

The best thing about this snorkeling trip is that it can accommodate up to 48 people. The more, the merrier, they say! This is your chance to meet new people while you relish the beauty underwater.
