Snorkel Cruise and Whale Watch
12:45–5:45 p.m.
$255 per person

Hop aboard the Four Winds II, a 55-foot double-decked power catamaran that will transport you from Ma‘alaea Harbor to some of Maui’s premier dive locations. The friendly and professional crew will offer detailed snorkel instruction for first-timers, and dive tips to the more seasoned divers. An onboard  waterslide make ocean entries a splash, and glass-bottom viewing is available if you’d prefer to stay aboard. 

The  Hawaiian islands have one of the highest concentrations of indigenous or native marine life on the planet, making a snorkel experience akin to swimming in an aquarium. Maui’s coastal waters are home to a abundance of creatures; kīkākapu, the rainbow striped butterfly fish, the stunning kihikihi or Moorish idol, black spiny sea urchins called wana, and shy he‘e, or octopus. The endangered honu, or green sea turtle, are occasionally seen. If you’re lucky, spinner dolphins will make an appearance, playing in the Four Winds II’s bow wave, or entertaining you with acrobatic displays of sheer fun.

Food always tastes better on the water, a fact that you will agree on after sampling a bountiful deli luncheon buffet. After snorkeling, kick back and relax with cool adult libations as the crew sets course for a smooth trip back to the harbor. Fun and adventure are yours to enjoy as you venture out to sea with the Four Winds II.
