  • Maui: Deluxe Sunset Sail from Lahaina

    1. Maui: Deluxe Sunset Sail from Lahaina

    Join your group and crew on an elevated sunset viewing experience. Lay back on the forward trampolines, find a comfortable seat with panoramic island views, or take cover under the covered cabin space for a break from the elements. This trip is BYOB (bring your own beverages), so don't forget to pack your favorite bottle of bubbly. Onboard drinks including locally brewed beer, mai tais, wine, and champagne will also be served, in addition to hot and cold pupus (appetizers) from the acclaimed restaurant Down The Hatch. From December to May, enjoy the thrill of watching the humpback whales who make their way to Hawaii each year.

    The crew, Patrick, Jeff, Malani and Kyrstin were great. They really went beyond to accommodate everyone. The experience was relaxing and the bottomless drinks were a nice bonus. Highly recommend!!

    Start the tour by boarding a brand new luxury catamaran at the dock in Lahaina. Set off on your incredible adventure along the spectacular coastline of Lana'i.

After swimming and snorkeling, sit back with a drink and enjoy a full lunch buffet while trying to catch a sighting ...

    Patrick and Dan made sure of safety first. Then explained every activity in detail, counted heads and made sure everyone was happy and knew what to do. We got in a great sail as the wind picked up and saw fish, coral and turtles. They could not have improved a thing. Best time ever!!!!

    I had a great experience on Sept 15. It would have been nice to know ahead of time that SNUBA would be available-- and the additional cost was very pricey-- but I'm glad to have done it. The Snuba instructor was fabulous, knowledgeable and attentive. Thank you!!

  • Maui: Turtle Town Kayak and Snorkel Tour

    Explore the ocean and see marine wildlife on this family friendly kayaking tour– great for children 5 and up. On this group kayaking tour, you will kayak roughly 2.5 miles through Makena Bay. Turtle Town is known as one of Maui's best kayaking and snorkeling destinations. Spot ocean wildlife as you battle through the blue hawaiian surf. This location is famous for the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle population and exceptional paddling conditions on Maui's calm blue waters. It is also very common to see manta rays and dolphins as well as the Hawaiian monk seal. During whale season (October thru April) you will have the opportunity to see Humpback whales during their annual migration to the Islands to mate and give birth.

    Great experience and fun despite getting sea sick from the kayak. However, the tour guide Jakeb, was extremely helpful and patient with me and hilarious! You will have a great time with Jakeb. Definitely take something for nausea before kayaking, just in case you get sick or the waters a choppier than usual. (5 stars)
