The wind and waves have been shaping Maui’s volcanoes for over a million years and those same elements shape our excursions today. Our experienced captain and crew will use cues from the land and sea to chart their course to the best snorkel location for this small-group afternoon adventure. Our nimble vessel, Ocean Explorer, allows for a close-to-the-water perspective and an open deck with uninterrupted ocean views. With a maximum capacity at just 34 guests, you’ll enjoy a personal and custom experience, made just for you. This small boat experience does not compromise comfort, private restrooms, warm showers, a grilled lunch and local Maui brews are all included.

The highlight of your adventure awaits below the surface at one of Maui’s most pristine snorkel sites, such as Coral Gardens, Olowalu or even Molokini. Keep a lookout for Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, sea birds, endemic reef fish and the rare and endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal. As interpretive guides, our crew are eager to show you the underwater world of Maui and provide an immersive experience.

Start your day slowly or fit in a morning mission before this noon departure, rest assured that we will have you back in time for any evening plans you may have. In just a few hours discover the beauty of Maui’s marine environment alongside seasoned experts. Book your small-group snorkel today and prepare for an unforgettable afternoon!
