Description

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.

"Whale Watching"

Went out 5 times on Pacif Whale Foundation raft Ocean Journey. I’ve been whale watching numerous times on Maui. The best way to see it, is on a raft. You get a minute ch closer experience and not fighting with dozens of other looking for that good spot. One of our trips was really choppy. We did see Whales, but the crew decided we should get a free trip. Not too many companies would do that. Looking forward to next years visit during whale season

"AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!"

If I could give 10 stars I would! I never even write Yelp reviews but I was SO impressed by this company that I absolutely had to. I did both the whale watch and snorkel Molokini & turtletown. The entire experience was just wonderful. I felt so comfortable and everyone on board was extremely accommodating & friendly as well. It was a bonus that they were so informative of what we were seeing in the water and around us. Just an amazing experience!

The difference of this tour is that the people are truly passionate and informed about the animals they are sharing with you. You’ll never go with the ‘profit’ based your operator again after this trip.
