Choose Your Maui Cruise

Molokini Snorkel TourSo you want to get out on the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean off Maui's sublime coastline, but what kind of outing to choose? There are several options, and it's just a matter of picking the one that's right for you and the rest of your group, whether you're visiting with family, children, friends, business associates or your sweetheart. Here's a brief rundown of our choices, to help you decide.

Snorkel Tours - Want to get in the water and explore the teeming coral reefs that Hawaii is so well known for? We have two tours to choose from. The Molokini Snorkel Tour will take you to the charming and tiny crescent-shaped island of Molokini off South Maui's coast. Since the island has no beaches for wave action to churn up, this snorkeling site is among the clearest in the world. You really get a great sense of how far the reefs sprawl in every direction. We are the only tour company that runs from Lahaina Harbor to Molokini. Our Lanai Snorkel Tour will take you to the beautiful neighboring island of Lanai, which is known for its tiny human population, which only consists of a few thousand people. As such, it's vibrant snorkeling sites tend to be much less crowded than those around Maui.

Sunset Dinner Cruise - If you want to get on the water but not in the water, perhaps a dinner cruise would be just right for you. They can be romantic, lively, soothing, and entertaining all at once. You'll be riding aboard Maui's largest and most stable yacht, the 120' Maui Princess. Flaming sunsets, unobstructed ocean views, sumptuous cuisine and fabulous entertainment all come together to make your trip special as you dine and dance the night away.

Molokai Tours - We just so happen to operate the only ferry between Maui and Molokai. As such, we can bring you to the fascinating island of Molokai and set you up with a car rental for your self-guided exploration of the island, or we can take you on a tour with a knowledgeable driver/tour guide who can take you to all the best spots and tell you about each location. The choice is yours!

Whale Watching Tours - Humpback Whales grow up to 45 feet long, and happen to be the most acrobatic of the baleen whales, so get ready for an amazing show. If whale watching all the way from shore just isn't satisfying enough, why not book a tour? Whale season begins in December and ends in May, but we are offering the opportunity for pre-booking on this popular activity. Our craft are the largest and most stable that you could hope to find here on Maui, so we pride ourselves on being the best option for those with sensitive stomachs. The size of our tour boats also helps ensure that there is plenty of space along the railings so that everyone can get the best view. Best of all, we guarantee whale sightings or we'll give you your money back.

Private Tours - If you need a tour for a special private event, let us know. Over our 40 years of experience, we've provided private group snorkeling trips, exclusive sunset wedding receptions, family sightseeing adventures and private whale watch trips. Just give us a call and we'll work with you to provide the best experience possible for you and your group.

That's the rundown of the ocean tours that we provide to our wonderful guests. If you're interested in booking with us, you'll find our contact information at the bottom of the page, and you can also contact and book with us from the website. We look forward to seeing you out on the water with us. Mahalo!
