  • Lahaina, Maui: Lana'i Snorkeling and Dolphin Encounter

    1. Lahaina, Maui: Lana'i Snorkeling and Dolphin Encounter

    See an entirely new island in Hawaii on a catamaran cruise to Lanai. Start the day with Hawaiian music and a local breakfast. Listen to your captain chat about this slice of paradise, and keep a look out for spinner dolphins jumping in the air.

    Arrive at the first site on the coast of Lanai, and explore the underwater world with a crew member in the water at all times. Take advantage of the waterslide for an extra slice of fun.

    Marvel at the marine life as you snorkel beneath towering cliffs up to 300 feet high. Be among the few to snorkel at remote locations with great visibility, such as Shark Fin Rock and Manele Bay. Get a spectacular view of the West Maui Mountains as you enjoy an adult beverage and Quicksilver Crew Trivia on the trip back to Lahaina.

    Excellent experience, the captain was very informative and entertaining. We learned a lot about the islands while enjoying the ride. Snorkeling was great and we even stopped to swim in the deep blue and saw a pod of dolphins with babies. A great experience all in all.

  • Maui: Molokini and Turtle Town Snorkel Tour with Lunch

    2. Maui: Molokini and Turtle Town Snorkel Tour with Lunch

Use the provided snorkeling equipment to explore the underwater world and take advantage of the two water slides into the water.

    Highly recommend Mahalo Tours to travel the road to Hana. Local tour guides who know how to navigate this windy and sometimes bumpy road. The stops made were as advertised and snacks and lunch were very good! Justin was our guide.

He was informative, funny, patient with us and really knew how to drive that van! Very pleasant personality. We stopped at local spots and touristy spots.

  • Maui: Lahaina Old Town Self-Guided Audio Tour

    9. Maui: Lahaina Old Town Self-Guided Audio Tour

    This tour explores the many highlights of the culturally and historically rich Lahaina, Hawaii. On this tour, visit, Baldwin Home Museum, Hauola Stone, Pioneer Inn, Old Lahaina Courthouse, Old Fort, Banyan Tree Court, the Old Prison, Waine’E Church, Shingon Buddhist Temple, Luakini Street, and the Lahaina Restoration Fountain. Each stop clearly exemplifies the amazing history of Lahaina, telling the story of the past of each stop. The Lahaina Restoration Foundation has done a wonderful job of keeping the history of the town of Lahaina present so that nothing is forgotten. From the old Fort to the Courthouse, the history of the town is preserved through many old buildings that are open to the public to explore and learn from. In addition, the town is full of amazing culture, especially in Banyan Tree Court, where people gather and socialize by the amazing historical landmark of the Banya...

    We ended up not finishing this tour because it was at least 95 degrees out and way too hot to continue. We did enjoy checking out the old prison, although it closed before we got there and could only walk around the grounds. The banyan tree was incredible, and it was cool to learn about how they grow. I appreciated the directions at the end of each track, although there was typically a faster way to get to each place if you look at the map. Pay attention to surroundings, and go early to avoid the heat. Get advanced tickets to the first stop if you want to go inside. Parking was fairly easy in one of the paid lots. Be sure to also check out the art in the shop next to the first stop.
