There are countless things to do in Maui, but there is nothing like snorkeling in Maui! Now you have the option of not only experiencing some of the best snorkeling in Maui, but during the winter months (December through March), you can enjoy whale watching too. Between April and November, the Pride of Maui will go to either Turtle Town, Olowalu, Coral Gardens or Molokini Crater, depending on the ocean and weather conditions, and there you will see a countless array of tropical fish, colorful reef, and magnificent marine life. Once winter comes to the islands, so do our annual visitors, the humpback whales, and a whale watching will also be included!

About the Pride of Maui: The Pride of Maui is a 65 ft powered catamaran, custom-made for Hawaiian waters. Famous for its stability, this vessel also has over 3000 sq ft of space, allowing for comfortable seating, unobstructed views, and spacious decks. This yacht comes with full amenities such as a hot shower, open bar, grill, and snorkeling equipment. It also has fun additions such as a glass bottom viewing area and a water slide! SNUBA gear and underwater camera rentals are available to kick your day in the ocean up to the next level.

Learn About the Humpback Whales: Each winter, the waters of Hawaii become home to thousands of migrating humpback whales. After leaving the cold waters near Alaska, these majestic mammals make their way to Hawaii to give birth and nurture their young. It is estimated that of the 20,000 humpbacks that are in the North Pacific, approximately 60% will come to Hawaii during the winter.

Although the ocean surrounding Hawaii is teeming with fish and marine life, adult whales do not eat anything while they are here and can lose up to 1/3 of their weight while on on their Hawaiian holiday. Instead, the calves that are born will have a steady supply of milk before making their way with their family back to Alaska in April or May.

FAQ
Expand all
Will we see whales?
  • During the winter and early spring (usually mid December through early April), you'll have a pretty good chance of seeing whales, as Maui is a prime hot spot for whale activity. But don't worry. Your Maui snorkeling experience is still safe, as the whales will be unlikely to approach during snorkeling and pose very little danger to humans.
How far in advance should I book this activity?
  • We recommend booking at least 1-2 weeks in advance. If you have very specific schedule requirements and are not flexible, please book sooner. Last-minute bookings are often possible, but availability is limited.
What is the lunch menu?
  • The Pride of Maui features on-board grills to freshly prepare your lunch as well as an open bar featuring wine, local beer, and cocktails!

    Lunch Menu: Vegetable Crudités, Pasta Salad, Hot Dogs, Cheesburgers & Chicken Sandwiches, and Cookies

    Open Bar: Local Beer on tap and in bottles, Regional Red & White Wines, Mai tais, Soft drinks, Juice, and Tea
