Aloha all, Our hearts are broken at Maui Snorkel Charters as we navigate the devastation of the wildfires that ravaged Maui. The loss cannot be measured and we’re working with the community to help with relief where we can. The South Side of Maui remains open and needs your business and support now more than ever. We will continue to run charters while making ourselves available to the west side as needed. Please keep Maui in your thoughts and prayers as we navigate these unprecedented times.

Maui Whale Watching Adventures

Maui Snorkel Charters trip out of Kihei boat ramp is hands down the best snorkel trip we’ve ever been on in over 25 years of coming to Maui.

Roughly 7,000 humpback whales migrate to Maui’s warm, shallow waters every winter to calve, mate and rear their young. That means Dec 15th – March 31st, from 11:45am – 1:45pm, we’re going whale watching!  

You’ll see more whales with us than you would a whale watching tour and here’s why:

  • Our 2-hour whale watching tour is twice as long as an ordinary whale watch, so you’ve got much more time to dedicate to finding and hanging out with whales.
  • That extra time also allows us to take you to so many different areas around Molokini and South Maui that the odds of seeing multiple whales are much better.
  • Our boat is FAST and nimble, so when we spot whale activity, we can quickly scoot over to that area, while a bigger boat will take more time and may miss out on the action!

Your 2-hour adventure begins at 11:45 am (11:30 am check-in). You’ll depart from the Kihei Boat Ramp, a 5-minute drive from most Wailea Resorts and within walking distance of many Kihei condos.

Sunscreen (reef-safe, of course!)

Individual storage area for any personal items

For your added comfort you may want to bring:

  • Light jacket
  • Water bottle
  • Camera
  • Cash to thank the crew

 Please do not bring spray on sunscreen
as it is damaging to the reef and the boat.

We are family friendly! And it’s our priority to provide the best experience on the water despite age or physical limitations.

However, your safety comes first.
