Maui snorkeling tours are the #1 activity on the island in terms of popularity!


Never been snorkeling on Maui before? Maui snorkel adventures are simple to arrange and snorkeling can be learned in a matter of minutes and mastered on your first outing. Snorkeling is easiest to learn with the assistance of one of the crew members on a Maui snorkel tour.

There are a number of reasons people love to snorkel on Maui:

  • Maui snorkeling is fun because the ocean waters surrounding Maui and its neighbor islands of Lanai and Molokini are comfortably warm. The average water temperature during the year generally varies between 74 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • The waters surrounding Maui are ideal for snorkeling as many of its most popular Maui snorkeling locations have great visibility. This is particularly true of the protected marine reserves such as Molokini and Honolua Bay which often have visibility in clear crystal waters in excess of 100 feet.
  • Maui snorkeling locations are often teeming with beautiful coral formations and colorful tropical fish.
  • The close proximity to Maui of the islands of Lanai and Molokini provide some of the very best snorkeling locations and snorkeling conditions to be found in the state.


The time of year can affect your Maui sailing charter as well as the time of day:
As you are well aware, Maui is an island completely surrounded by water and consequently any ocean location off the coast of Maui has the potential to be an area where sailing can occur. In fact however, there are only certain portions of Maui that are suitable for sailing on a regular basis because of the prevailing winds. The most dominant of the prevailing winds are the trade winds which reach Maui approximately 300 days out of the year. These winds will come out of the north-east during the spring, summer and fall months and primarily hit the north and eastern shores of the island. Although trade winds occur in the winter as well, this is also the time we can receive winds which hit the island from the opposite direction (called Kona winds) and in many cases can include stormy conditions. As far as Maui sailing charters are concerned it is usually best to depart from a location that is not particularly windy for logistical reasons and once out to sea, sail into the winds. This makes the departure points of Kaanapali, Lahaina and Maalaea particularly suitable for a place from which to embark on one of the Maui sails. In addition to the time of year the winds forming in the late mornings and afternoons are generally much stronger and for those that really look forward to a stiff Maui sail this would be your best option.

What will you see on a Maui snorkel tour?

  • On your Maui snorkeling adventure you will see many types of colorful coral the most common of them being cauliflower coral which is usually brown or green but can also be a rose color, lobe coral which blooms in large mounds in protected shallow and deeper waters, and finger coral which is generally found in reefs at 15' in depth.
  • The list of reef fish you might find on your Maui snorkel is seemingly endless but probably includes some of these categories of reef fish: Parrotfish, Wrasse, Filefish, Butterfly fish, Angel fish, Damsel fish, Trigger fish, Eels, Unicorn fish, Hog fish, Surgeon fish, Cardinal fish, Soldier fish, Squirrel fish, Sanperch, Scorpion fish, Frog fish, Hawk fish, Lizard fish, Goat fish, Mullet, Puffer and Groupers.
  • Some of the larger marine life you may see on or near the surface on your Maui snorkel adventure could be Green Sea Turtles, Bottlenose Dolphin, Spinner Dolphin or the benign White Tip Reef Shark.


Here are some spots the Best Maui Snorkel Tours will take you!

  • Molokini always tops the list as the most popular place to take a Maui snorkel tour. Molokini is a small, crescent shaped inlet island located about 4 miles off the coast of Maui. The snorkeling conditions here are generally excellent in the mornings before the normal trade wind conditions arise. Afternoon trips here can also be good but the likelihood of wind-free and calm conditions is much less than in the mornings.
  • Turtle Town is also a popular place on the itinerary of many Maui Snorkel Tours and it is most frequently visited in tandem with a Molokini snorkel tour. This spot is located just off the coast of Wailea and is an area frequented by the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle.
  • La Perouse Bay and the Kanaio Coastline are visited by Maui snorkel tours that can easily and swiftly travel the distance between Maalaea Harbor and this bay and coastline. There are not many boats that have this capability so this tour is not as available as tours to Molokini. Some smaller boats and rigid-hulled rafts can also leave out of the Kihei Boat Ramp which is much more accessible to these areas.
  • Honolua Bay off the northern coast of West Maui is a protected marine reserve and is one of the best places to snorkel on Maui during the summer months. In the winter Honolua Bay is frequently battered by large surf and is a favorite spot for Maui big wave surfers. During the summer months the bay is calm and ideal for snorkeling. Most of the boats that visit Honolua Bay for snorkeling will depart from either Kaanapali or Lahaina Harbor.
  • The coast off Lanai will provide some of the most interesting and varied snorkeling to be found in Maui County. Many Maui snorkeling tours will leave from Lahaina Harbor and visit the Lanai coastlines which, in addition to large reefs and beautiful fish will also give you the best opportunity on Maui to see dolphins.
