Cut out all the unnecessary frills and head straight for the water around Mala Wharf, where a partially sunken pier forms an artificial reef that is perfect for quick snorkel swims. Spend nearly two hours in blue Hawaiian waters, playing around the interesting structures beneath the surface and interacting with a host of colorful fish and other local residents. Mala Wharf is known locally as gathering place for Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, making it ideal for face-to-face encounters with one of Hawaii's most beloved marine creatures.
What to expect

This is a snorkeling focused cruise, designed to give you more time snorkeling than riding on the boat. It is also shorter than most snorkeling cruises in the area, only 2 hours in duration, designed to fit better in your schedule if you do not have a half day to spend on snorkeling.

Sea Turtle Hot Spot!: The snorkel site is the sunken Mala Wharf pier, which was destroyed by massive waves caused by Hurricane Iniki in 1992. Today, the rubble from the pier has been overtaken with new coral and has become home to a thriving, diverse reef ecosystem. The most notable feature of this snorkel site is that it is home to a healthy population of Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles. You are sure to have a close encounter with these friendly turtles making it an amazing spot to capture pictures and video.

How does it work?

This is a 2 hour snorkel cruise that is focused on less time on the boat and more time in the water snorkeling. The cruise starts with boarding the Sea Maui Catamaran at Kaanapali Beach just behind Whalers Village. From here you will take a short 15 to 20 minute cruise along the coast to the sunken Mala Wharf pier. You will have roughly 2 hours here to snorkel, swim with turtles and explore the structure that makes this snorkel spot special. After snorkeling, you will take a quick 15-20 minute cruise back up the coast to Kaanapali Beach to conclude the cruise.
