Overview

Lahaina Turtle Town a.k.a. Mala Wharf is our first choice snorkel destination. In 1992 powerful hurricane Iniki destroyed the Mala pier. The remaining posts from the pier have created an artificial reef and sanctuary where corals and other marine life thrive. While snorkeling at Mala Wharf, you’re likely to spot Moorish Idols, Green Sea Turtles, and Saddleback Wrasse.

If the snorkel conditions are not ideal at Lahaina Turtle Town the Captain will choose from one of the other premier westside snorkel locations that include Honolua Bay, Airport Beach, and Launiupoko. All of these locations offer excellent opportunity to view the beloved Hawaiian green sea turtles, many varieties of brightly colored tropical fish, and beautiful coral reef formations.

During whale season we frequently observe Humpback whales as they enjoy the warm Hawaiian waters! This tour segment will include expert narration and provide a "play-by-play" commentary of the whale behaviors as you view them.

The Skipper and his crew were awesome. We didn't get to go to Turtle Cove due to weather conditions, but the skipper took us to an amazing spot where we were still able to snorkel in calm waters. We saw turtles, tropical fish, and ate hot dogs. To top it off we saw a Whale which was not on the list of expectations.

Take this tour! Captain, crew, and vessel were all great. Being the last day of whaling season the capt managed our expectations but on our way back to dock we saw 3 whales! Snorkeling was beautiful and the crew was very helpful. Captain gave us a historical narrative on the islands which was awesome. Great tunes on the boat too. It was a great way to spend an afternoon in paradise.

Words can not describe how much fun we had on this trip! If this is your first time snorkeling and you’re nervous this trip is for you. The captain of this tour gives you a brief but extremely helpful run down of how to use all of the equipment (flippers,mask, and breathing tube) he was so funny and down to earth. Once in the water the staff was very alert and focused on keeping all of us safe so all you had to worry about was admiring all of the beautiful sea life. There was even a photographer going around taking pictures of us and they were available for purchase afterwards. If you own a GoPro I highly suggest you bring it to this tour! After snorkeling we were welcomed back on the boat to lunch and mai tais! The staff was amazing and helped bring food/drinks back to your seat and came around and collected trash. The captain and staff made this a very memorable experience! Thank you a million times.
