Half-Day Snorkel Tours in Ma'alaea

Snorkel Operators out of Ma'alaea
Here are a couple of Snorkel Operators that we recommend.  We make these recommendations because we believe that they are good Stewards of the Ocean and provide an exceptional snorkel experience.
Pac Whale Foundation



Pacific Whale Foundation

When we have guests visiting, we love taking them on one of the fantastic Pacific Whale Foundation Snorkel Tours. We highly recommend either the Honolua Bay or Lanai Snorkel & Dolphin Watch Tours. The best part about these tours is that you get to experience both sailing and snorkeling. It's an absolute blast!​

"PacWhale Eco-Adventures is based on nearly four decades of marine research and ecotourism experience. Every trip is led by certified Marine Naturalists who provide a truly unique, educational, and fun adventure at sea.  Watch wildlife in their natural habitat, snorkel Molokini, Lanaʻi, and Honolua Bay, and enjoy a relaxing sunset dinner, cocktail, or stargazing cruise. We offer the most options on Maui and earn the highest ratings by travel sites and guidebooks. We also provide private charters and wedding cruises." 

The best part is that all profits support the Pacific Whale Foundation’s research, education, and conservation programs to save whales, dolphins, and our oceans.

Other Snorkel Operators


Calypso Maui

Calypso Maui is a popular boat tour company that offers a variety of tours, including snorkeling, whale watching, and sunset cruises. The company has a good reputation for providing excellent service and comfortable accommodations.

Calypso can be a bit crowded.  Still a good choice.

Four Winds Maui is a boat tour company that's all about creating a splash! Our crew is super friendly, our boats are spacious, and our food is absolutely delicious. Plus, we take pride in our eco-friendly boats and our knowledgeable crew.  So, get ready to have an amazing time with us - it's going to be a whale of an adventure!

Other Snorkel Charters

The reality is that most snorkel companies are pretty much the same.  They all offer some sort of environmental awareness talk, a little Maui history, and food and beverage.  Some are on Sailboats, others on go-fast RIBs (Ridged Hull Inflatables). Everyone says they go to Turtle Town.  Spoiler Alert,  there are several Turtle Towns.  Maui has an abundance of Sea Turtles. The Snorkel Tours do book up fast. Here are a few options that depart out of Lahaina Harbor.
