SNORKELING IN MAUI
Ka‘anapali is ideally located for enjoying the many ocean adventures we offer including sailing, snorkeling, and whale watching. And it is the only location where we actually pick up and drop off guests directly from the beach. Some of the best Maui snorkel sites are only a few miles away and our crew will choose the best destination for that day. Our experienced and dedicated crew are masters of teaching first time snorkelers, and if you're an old pro and want an underwater experience that goes beyond snorkeling, you may want to try SNUBA, one of our most popular upgrades.
We provide all the snorkeling equipment and instruction, as well as wet suit tops for everyone on board, breakfast, lunch, soda and snacks, and that personalized service you've come to expect from Maui's first family of sailing. With those famous Maui trade winds just a few hundred yards offshore, our crew wastes no time in hoisting sail and getting into some serious sailing! Finally, even if you are not staying on or near Ka‘anapali beach, our late morning departures give you plenty of time to make the drive from any part of the island.
