Lahaina: Turtle Town Snorkel and Whale Watching Cruise

1. Lahaina: Turtle Town Snorkel and Whale Watching Cruise

Spot Hawaii's native marine life in its natural habitat on a snorkel cruise to Turtle Town from Lahaina. Swim past green sea turtles, Moorish idols, and even humpback whales. For beginners, there is an onboard snorkel demonstration before you set out. Enjoy an onboard lunch and drinks. Set sail from Lahaina Harbor towards Turtle Town, aka Mala Wharf (if weather conditions allow). In 1992, a powerful hurricane destroyed Mala Pier. The surviving posts have created an artificial reef and sanctuary where corals and other marine life thrive. Spot Moorish idols, green sea turtles, and saddle wrasse while snorkeling here. If snorkel conditions are not ideal at Turtle Town a.k.a. Mala Wharf, cruise to one of the other premier westside snorkel locations such as Honolua Bay, Airport Beach, or Launiupoko. All of these locations offer an excellent opportunity to see Hawaiian green sea turtles, brightly colored tropical fish, and beautiful coral reef formations. During the whale season (December to April), observe humpback whales as they enjoy the warm Hawaiian waters. This tour segment will include expert narration about the whales and provide a play-by-play commentary of the whales' behavior as you view them.

Maui: Molokini and Turtle Town Snorkel Tour with Lunch

2. Maui: Molokini and Turtle Town Snorkel Tour with Lunch

Take a snorkeling tour to the Molokini Crater and Turtle Town from Maalaea harbor. Encounter the extinct volcanic cone of Molokini and marvel at native Hawaiian marine life in their natural habitat.

Molokini is protected as a marine preserve and bird sanctuary, so expect pristine conditions. Use the snorkeling equipment to explore the underwater world. Enjoy riding down the two water slides to splash into the water. Take a peek at the reef without getting in the water via the glass-bottom viewing room. Have peace of mind knowing a lifeguard will be in the water at all times watching over the snorkelers and ready to help if requried. After leaving Molokini, head for your second snorkeling spot of the day at Turtle Town. When there, take the chance to swim with Hawaiian green sea turtles amid the calm waters before returning to the boat for lunch.

Keep your eyes peeled for whales slapping the surface with their very long side fins, tails, or the strong muscles attaching the tail to the rest of the body. See them spy-hop, when humpback whales come high out of the water to have a look around at the world above. See the majesty of a breaching whale, if you are lucky. This is when a whale rises completely out of the water and crashes down again. Don’t forget to bring your camera and take memorable photos from the shade of a spacious cabin.

What people are saying about Maui County

We enjoyed the tour very much. Although we had buss issues and had to cancel the trip half way through what we did see was very enjoyable!! Our driver Ray and guide Andrew were both extremely polite. I miss placed my phone and the dispatcher Lee was very accommodating and checked the busses. She found it and I was able to go by the office and pick it up.

We really enjoyed our tour with Joline. Joline responded to our wishes and sensitivities and showed us everything that you have to see. In addition, she is a very safe driver who is also very nice and charming. We can recommend the provider and the tour with a clear conscience.

Awesome experience! Our driver was Charleston and he was great! Very knowledgeable about Hawaiian history & culture and very friendly. It is a long trip and we were in a Jeep, we loved every minute of it!

This was our first snorkeling trip ever! The boat and crew were excellent. Lunch was great too! Snorkeling with the sea turtles was so magical, I’m hooked and will definitely be doing it again.

The crew were exceptional. Great overall trip. Worth the money
