Splash into an ocean of fun and see some of the most magnificent marine life you can imagine.
Hawaii is home to over 200 endemic species of marine animals which can only be found on our beautiful remote island chain. In addition to the variety of bright and unique tropical fish, it is common to spot green sea turtles, spotted eagle rays and other exciting marine animals. You may even be lucky enough to spot spinner dolphins surfing on the wake of our large boat, hear the song of the majestic humpback whales, or watch the graceful movements of a whale shark or manta ray.
There are many ways to see the beauty of the underwater world while on a Maui snorkeling adventure aboard the Pride of Maui! We are the only outfit operating a large power catamaran that provides Maui snorkeling, Maui scuba and Maui snuba, on the same daily excursion. This is an opportunity for the certified scuba divers in your group to spend the day with those who just want to snorkel and enjoy the reef from above. The snorkelers may even be inspired to experience weightlessness and breathing underwater, and sign up for our Maui SNUBA dive.
We even welcome landlubbers that may be in your group, because the fun doesn’t start below the water! Some folks take in the Maui snorkel tour, and just relax in the well appointed spacious cabin, stretch out on the sprawling upper deck, slide down the slide, read a book, take a nap, or watch the fish and rest of you through the glass bottom viewing area.
While SNUBA diving in Maui you will enjoy the unique experience of weightlessness and breathing underwater up close with the beautiful marine life in a safe, controlled environment, about 15-20 feet below the surface, under the watchful care of our expert SNUBA instructors.

All you have to is relax and breathe. Maui SNUBA is the best of both worlds – a hybrid between snorkeling and scuba diving. If you are up for an exhilarating underwater adventure, our SNUBA tour is the adventure for you!
