Sail out into the beautiful Maunalua Bay, named "two mountains" for being located between Diamond Head and Koko Head craters, giving you a beautiful panorama of the Hawaii Kai area. This lesser-known bay holds a sandbar and turtle canyon of its own, serving as a home to various reef fish, making it an amazing place for snorkeling and underwater adventures. After a short ride out to turtle canyon, you can spend the entire time in the water or relax on the boat as much as you'd like. Don't miss out on this hidden gem in Maunalua Bay!
