Our trips take you snorkeling from Lahaina acoss to the island of Lanai and the waters around the West side of Maui. Maui and Lanai are known for their crystal clear waters and the abundance of beautiful creatures living just below the surface. As a result, one of the most popular activities for visitors to Maui is snorkeling – something that can easily be done by young and old, families and couples. Visitors can expect to see a wide variety of tropical fish and more – from colorful parrotfish that can be found on almost every reef to rays, octopus and the fascinating sea turtles that are commonly seen throughout the islands.
The west side of the island is a great place to stay and soak up the sun and sand. Lahaina is at the base of these mountains on the leeward side of the island and only receives around 12 inches of rain per year. The trade winds typically blow from the northeast, leaving this side of the island dry and warm. Our full, half and mid day snorkeling trips leave conveniently from Lahaina harbor daily. Give us a call at 808-661-RAFT or book directly on our website, www.hawaiioceanrafting.com.
If you are staying on the West side of the island, Front street is where the action is. An entire street devoted to fine and casual dining and shopping for every budget. All of our trips leave from Lahaina harbor which is located directly on Front street. You can head out for a morning snorkel and arrive back in time for lunch and a leisurely stroll through town. There are also many historic spots such as the old courthouse and the sprawling banyan tree. Snorkeling from Lahaina is super convenient and there is plenty of parking just down the street.
