An amazing snorkeling adventure awaits you, just off the coast of Lanai. A beautiful landscape of the West Maui mountains surround you as you cruise the waters, looking for pods of spinner, spotted dolphin, and bottlenose dolphins. During the winter season, you might even catch glimpses of humpback whales on their way down from Alaska.

Experts on-board the cruise will get you fitted for your snorkel gear and give a fish identification class before you jump into the water, so you can make the most of your experience viewing the marine life and seeing the colorful coral reefs, all while being surrounded by one of the most beautiful backdrops Maui has to offer!
By the time you return from your snorkeling expedition, a flavorful barbecue lunch will be waiting for you. Enjoy the shade and cool breeze in the cabin’s open area as you return to Lahaina harbor.

Cruise departs at 8:00 am and returns at 1:30 pm.
