Maui Snorkeling Tours
Snorkeling is one of the most popular things to do on Maui. The island’s crystal clear waters and spectacular coral reef is a snorkeler’s dream. Many of Maui’s best snorkeling spots are located a little further offshore where the water is clearer and there is more to see. One such prime snorkeling destination is Molokini, a crescent moon-shaped islet that’s actually an extinct volcanic crater about 2.5 miles off Maui’s south shore. About 250 species of fish, some found nowhere else on Earth, make these pristine waters their home. It is also known as one of the top ten dive sites in the world and has excellent viewing up to 150 feet.
Another prime snorkel spot is Turtle Arches, located off Makena. The green sea turtles here are used to snorkelers and will approach quite close. Or you can head over to the neighbor island of Lanai to snorkel at Hulopoe Bay, a marine life preserve where a huge variety of tropical fish flourish. As you travel to and from your snorkeling location keep your eyes out for spinner and bottlenose dolphins. During whale watching season you will most likely also get to see whales.
