from Ocean Spirit Honolua Bay Snorkel Sail
Come aboard Ocean Spirit, Maui's luxury sailing catamaran, as we cruise along the beautiful Ka’anapali Coastline to the breathtaking waters of Honolua Bay, one of Maui’s most popular snorkel spots. Enjoy a leisurely snorkel and take in the beauty of the island’s vibrant coral and plentiful marine life including green sea turtles and colorful tropical fish.

From here, Ocean Spirit will head to another stunning reef where you can participate in a free guided reef tour with our certified marine naturalists. Then climb onboard and enjoy a delicious barbecue lunch and ice cold drinks. We’ll then head out to sea, where you can sit back, relax, and take in the scenery as we ride Maui’s trade winds for an exciting sail back to Lahaina Harbor. Keep your eyes peeled on this cruise, as we are often treated with visits by Maui's wild spinner, spotted and bottlenose dolphins.

We booked this through an Airbnb experience where they limit the boat to 20 people max for a more intimate experience. The captain and guides were able to switch up the itinerary based on weather conditions and where marine life had been spotted that day. We enjoyed 3 snorkels and saw spinner dolphins, a manta ray, sea turtles, and loads of fish. The guides were friendly and super knowledgeable. Plus your money goes back to the foundation and all the great work they are doing. Wet shirts were available for rental at $10 each and reef safe sunscreen was also available for purchase. We enjoyed a grilled lunch and beer/wine on the trip back to shore. I would rebook in a heartbeat!

"Amazing Whale Tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

It was my last day in Maui and I though why not try to see some whales, even though I knew my chances were small as it was not prime whale season just yet. To my surprise I got to see four whales, one of them got really close to the boat. I rented the binoculars and glad I did, many of the whales we spotted were far from the boat. The crew were a fun group and very knowledgable about the humpback whales. I really enjoyed just being out on the water with a local beer in hand. Wonderful experience! Thank you!

The staff were incredibly freidndly, helpful, and informative. I was surprised by the quantity and quality of food provided and variety for all diets. We feel we got more than our money’s worth with all that PacWhale provided on our Molokini snorkel tour AND we got to see turtles, plenty of fish, and ~20 dolphins!
