Imagine the cool trade winds in your hair, as you cruise along the majestic coast aboard Maui’s largest and stable in catamaran.

Don’t settle for a small, bouncy boat with cramped seating and poor visibility, when you can stretch out in comfort aboard the Pride of Maui. All of our Maui activities include a Maui boat tour from the Maalaea Harbor where you will cruise in comfort, with plenty of room to relax and move freely throughout.

Our Maui snorkeling tour takes you to a specific destination where the boat stops and moors, so that you can splash into an ocean of fun, taking in the beauty of the coral reef and its colorful inhabitants. Equipped with a hardwood bar, stainless steel galley with Wolf BBQ grills, two rest rooms, warm showers, a glass bottom, super water slide, swim platforms and deeply submerged stairs, the amenities aboard the Pride of Maui boat tours are simply unsurpassed.

Molokini is one of only three volcanic calderas in the world. Located just a few miles off Maui’s shore, it is Hawaii’s only island marine sanctuary. Scientists believe Molokini Crater formed about 150 thousand years ago. Molokini rises from 300 feet below the ocean’s surface and is just under a half-mile wide and peaks at about 160 feet above sea level with half of it being hidden under the surface of the ocean. Divers and snorkelers flock from all around the world to experience the incredible underwater marine life and excellent visibility of this flourishing islet.

The isolation of Molokini Crater creates a unique Maui snorkeling experience. There are significant reasons why Molokini snorkeling is so special. The quality of the water surrounding Molokini is superior, providing unsurpassed clarity. Visibility is consistently excellent, often in excess of 150 feet. Molokini is rock, with no soil to wash down into the water.

You will not soon forget the gentle and graceful Sea Turtles at Turtle Town. Curious by nature, these wonderful marine animals will gently approach a slowly moving Maui snorkeler, providing outstanding underwater photo opportunities. The sea turtles are a protected species. This is why Maui snorkel and scuba divers are reminded to respect their space. The law prohibits touching, chasing or riding the turtles.

Calmly observing and allowing the turtles to swim close, makes your Maui snorkeling adventure at Turtle Town truly unforgettable. Luckily, at Turtle Town, the close encounters with these beautiful animals are usually initiated by the turtles, as they gently approach within 10 or so feet to get a closer look at you. It is also you’re best chance to take a close look at the world’s largest hard-shelled turtle.

Olowalu (Turtle Reef) is a quaint, oceanfront area on the West Side of the Island of Maui. It is located about 4 miles south of Lahaina just off the Honoapiilani Highway. Olowalu Reef is home to one of Hawaii’s most unique ocean reef systems, a great place to be when enjoying ocean activities in Maui. Some features are hundreds of years old large coral heads, an abundance of tropical marine life, a rare Manta Ray cleaning station and a Black Tip Reef Shark nursery.

For centuries, the ancient Hawaiians of Olowalu lived in the largest and deepest valley of West Maui. The valley and its upland area were composed of a land division based on the Hawaiian concept of “Ahupua`a.”
