Full description

Take in all the beautiful scenery on an afternoon snorkeling charter to either the beautiful coasts of Lana’i island or the magnificent area of Lahaina Turtle Town! Lana’i boasts large coral reefs fringe the wild, remote, and sparsely populated island.

The waters off Lanai are home to a pod of spinner dolphins made up of more than 100 individuals! Oftentimes, you will see spinners leap from the water while your double-deck catamaran makes her way to the snorkeling site at Manele Bay or Shark Fin Rock (named for its shape, not its underwater residents). If the weather is too rough or uncomfortable for our guests to cross the channel between Maui and Lana’i, we will take our guests to Lahaina Turtle Town where turtles are always seen in the wild amongst a variety of beautiful Hawaiian fish! Enjoy snorkeling in the translucent waters of Maui, sure to leave you in awe with abundant sea life and unreal clear visibility. Lana'i is the destination of choice, however is weather dependent, and if the weather does not cooperate, we will enjoy the Lahaina Turtle Town filled with various coral species and plentiful fish life. Afternoon snorkels on Maui are a treat! There are very few options that do afternoon snorkel charters, which allows us to bring you to an exclusive area that will be little to no other tourism in the area - giving a unique experience you're sure to love. When traveling to the island of Lana'i it is common to encounter the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins, which jump and spin in the air! Lana'i has a resident pod of over 200 Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins. or Lahaina Turtle Town is a very unique and highly desired snorkel location featuring turtle cleaning stations and an abundance of reef fish. This afternoon trip brings the possibility of experiencing an awesome boat snorkel charter without having to wake up at the break of dawn to get to the morning trips! Sleep in, enjoy the morning, and come for an awesome snorkel charter in the afternoon. Whale watch season officially starts December 1, 2021, so along with an awesome afternoon snorkel tour, you will have the opportunity to go Whale watching too. Humpback whales visit the Hawaiian Islands seasonally, so this is a combination of snorkeling at a beautiful reef as well as whale watching on the same tour.

All snorkel spots are determined daily weather permitting. Please understand and respect the captain's decisions on the safest snorkel locations for the day.

Where ever your captain takes you, the crew will provide you with snorkeling tips and gear. The catamaran has 2 restrooms and freshwater showers available for passengers.

This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! We all had so much fun, the captain was funny, the crew was nice, and the lifeguards were very attentive. As a larger person, I was worried I wouldn't enjoy it, but I had a lot of fun. If you're new to snorkeling, make sure you use a pool noodle, it definitely helps...

The captain and crew were amazing. We had the same Captain and crew on a snorkeling trip a day prior. They all are great. Cody took care of us and remembered us from the snorkeling trip from the day before. I would definitely recommend this crew for snorkeling and for the dinner sunset cruise. I would definitely book with these guys again.

The crew was so nice and helpful! The captain was very funny all throughout and the rest of the crew were always there to help in any way. My wife lost an earring and they even helped tried to find it. The food wasn’t great, but the rest of the experience was great!
