from Ocean Spirit Honolua Bay Snorkel Sail
Come aboard Ocean Spirit, Maui's luxury sailing catamaran, as we cruise along the beautiful Ka’anapali Coastline to the breathtaking waters of Honolua Bay, one of Maui’s most popular snorkel spots. Enjoy a leisurely snorkel and take in the beauty of the island’s vibrant coral and plentiful marine life including green sea turtles and colorful tropical fish.

From here, Ocean Spirit will head to another stunning reef where you can participate in a free guided reef tour with our certified marine naturalists. Then climb onboard and enjoy a delicious barbecue lunch and ice cold drinks. We’ll then head out to sea, where you can sit back, relax, and take in the scenery as we ride Maui’s trade winds for an exciting sail back to Lahaina Harbor. Keep your eyes peeled on this cruise, as we are often treated with visits by Maui's wild spinner, spotted and bottlenose dolphins.

This was my second time sailing with PacWhale. When we were in Maui last time we did a snorkeling cruise with them this time we did the whale watching tour. We saw so many whales! We were barely out of the harbor when we saw our first mother calf. We really loved going on a sailboat. The staff is always friendly and the juices they served were delicious! Best of all by supporting this company you see supporting the conservation work they do for whales and our ocean. It’s a win win!
