Water Activities on the island of Maui

When picturing Hawaii, the ocean is likely one of the top things that come to mind. It features crystal blue water, amazing tropical wildlife, and the famous surf has built a name for the Hawaiian Islands. The island of Maui is no exception when it comes to endless ocean activities.

With snorkeling, fishing charters, sailing, canoeing, rafting, whale watching, surfing, kayaking, scuba diving, submarine tours, parasailing, jet skiing, paddle boarding, and so much more – who can resist an adventure into those warm blue waters?

To watch pro surfers in action, head to Honolulu Bay and Hookipa Beach near Lower Paia during winter big wave season.

With tours, lessons, and charters, there are plenty of opportunities for guided exploration. Check out the list below for our local recommendations from everything to the best rental shops to kid-friendly tour packages.

SUNSET SAIL

For a sunset sail we highly recommend a sailing catamaran (power catamaran also available).  The tour is approx. two hours in length and boards from either Lahaina Harbor or Ka’anapali Beach (located just 10 minutes from where you are staying). The trip will sail along the coast so you can take in all of the views as they look for marine life and enjoy the gorgeous sunset. Hot & cold appetizers along with refreshments and adult beverages are included.

(food, beverages and open bar included)

MOLOKINI SNORKEL ADVENTURE

The morning snorkel to the Molokini crater is approximately 5 hours (7:30am-12:30pm). This trip is a lot of fun yet relaxing at the same time on a spacious power catamaran! This 48ft power catamaran can take up to 49 people but the owners only allow up to 30 people on the boat for a very intimate experience with an excellent crew who will take care of you and make sure you have everything for a great experience. On this tour you get to see extensive marine life while you snorkel/SNUBA at the Molokini crater which is a protected marine reserve approximately 3 miles off the southern coast of Maui. After snorkeling and exploring that area, you will get back on the beautiful catamaran and the captain will then take you to a second location to look for the dolphins, whales and to snorkel – keep an eye out for the green sea turtles and spotted eagle rays. This is a morning trip – when the water is typically the most clear, calm and glassy.

(breakfast, lunch, refreshments, open bar & snorkel gear included)
