Snorkel and Scuba Cruises

Maui is home to some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the world! Our tranquil waters are filled with thriving coal reefs, which provide for exquisite snorkeling and scuba diving. Snorkelers and divers have a chance to view a large variety of colorful fish, sea turtles, eels and even our state fish, the "Humu Humu Nuku Nuku Apua'a."

Before heading out to the beach, be sure to bring along some fish food or frozen peas (the fish go crazy over frozen peas). Many snorkeling and scuba diving stores also offer waterproof guides so you know exactly what fish you are looking at.

Though Kapalua Bay provides some of the best snorkeling in the world, there are many snorkeling and scuba diving excursions available for those of you wishing to get out on the open water and make a day of it.
