There are plenty of boating adventures that can be booked when visiting the island of Maui. From whale watches to snorkel cruises, here are some recommendations.
The Pacific Whale Foundation runs a number of cruises out of both the Lahaina Harbor and the Ma'alaea Harbor. Of course, the whale watching voyages are the most popular tour that the Pacific Whale Foundation offers, but other adventures include a sunset cruise, stargazing cruise, snorkel trip to Lanai, and snorkel trip to Molokini.
Trilogy Excursions has become the powerhouse in water tours on Maui. They have a regatta of 5 -10 boats that offer many different kinds of adventures. Snorkel cruises often include buffet lunches, marine tutorials, and even lessons for visitors who know very little about snorkeling.
The Lanai Ferry is also a fun option for Maui visitors looking to explore a neighboring island for the day. The ferry leaves from Lahaina harbor about six times a day. Once you get to Lanai, 45 minutes later, you can opt to rent a car and explore the island, or simply take a shuttle to the Four Seasons Resort.
If you want to stay closer to shore, simply reserve a kayak tour. Paddle over coral reefs and view the marine wildlife below you.
