When you think of Maui, the first thing that comes to mind is the beach. This is because the island includes 120 miles of coastline and 30 miles of stunning beaches. While relaxing on the beach is a must, you can find some of the best snorkeling in Maui right here in Lahaina. Luckily, Epic Realty has vacation rentals steps away from the beach. Snorkeling provides an opportunity to see the natural beauty and marine life of Maui up close. Snorkel in an extinct volcanic crater or swim with the turtles. However, you want to explore our ocean; we ask that everyone who goes snorkeling in Maui do so with respect and caution of the marine environment and its inhabitants. We thank you in advance for helping to protect our ocean and the incredible life that calls it home.
This snorkel cruise allows you to see inside the extinct Molokini volcanic crater. Marine life flourishes here with over 250 species of fish. The walls of volcanic rock, crystal clear water, and abundant marine life here are just the beginning of the cruise. The second snorkeling destination is at Turtle Town, where you can snorkel with green sea turtles up to four feet long! End the trip with a delicious lunch before heading back to the harbor.
The calm waters of Kapalua Bay make an ideal spot for beginners looking to try snorkeling on their own. Right next to the beach, you can rent snorkel gear from Snorkel Bob’s Lahaina. We recommend snorkeling off the northern end of the beach for better visibility of marine life. You will have the opportunity to see butterfly fish, parrot fish, surgeonfish, box fish, trigger fish, porcupine fish, and more. Kapalua Bay is just one of many locations you can snorkel at with your rental gear. Check out this map for even more exciting places to go snorkeling near Lahaina.
