West Maui Snorkel: Hawaii Must Have Experience

Fill your Hawaiian vacation with unforgettable experiences like Sea Maui’s West Maui Snorkel Adventure. Your West Maui snorkel experience will begin from Ka’anapali Beach in front of Whaler’s Village near Leilani’s. Then, you will set off in search of West Maui’s best snorkel site, and while doing so, you will be offered meals prepared by Cafe Jai. 

While you sail, keep your eyes open for Hawaiian spinner and bottlenose dolphins, and during the winter months, you can look for the humpback whales that migrate from Alaska to the warm Maui waters.

West Maui Snorkel: A Half Day Adventure

The experience will take place on board our Catamaran with our experienced captain and crew, who are happy to answer queries and ensure you’re comfortable before jumping into the sea. The captain will determine the best site to visit that day based on current water conditions. This includes the popular Maui snorkeling sites, including Honolua Bay, Cliff House, Oluwalu, Mala Wharf, and more. There is no guarantee of a specific site as the weather and water conditions can change daily.

Once in the water, everyone will be using the provided snorkeling equipment. You will swim among beautiful tropical fish and get a chance to be up close to Honu the Hawaiian green sea turtles. There, you will spot vibrant reefs and hopefully some other wildlife surprises while you splash below the surface. Depending on the season, you might even have a chance to witness humpback whales’ migration.

Once back on board, you will enjoy lunch prepared by Cafe Jai and be offered access to our premium beers, handcrafted cocktails, and other beverages as we take a leisurely cruise back to Ka’anapali Beach.

HD cameras will capture your adventure throughout your trip, so you have the opportunity to own these memories when you go home.
