Great place to snorkel

The reef is beautiful here although if its rough waters at all, you will want to be careful of getting cut on the coral close to the shore. Its very sharp and dangerous. If its... read more

The reef is beautiful here although if its rough waters at all, you will want to be careful of getting cut on the coral close to the shore. Its very sharp and dangerous. If its calm, you can see many beautiful fish as the water tends to be super clear. There is a parking lot just past the cove up... More

we found ahihi bay to be an incredible experience. although we have snorkeled in Ahihi Cove many, many times, it was not until last week that we snorkeled in the bay for the first time. The reef is just beautiful. it is in deeper water than the reef in Honolua Bay or Ahihi Cove. that means that it is less... More

Best snorkelling on the island! Good for beginners all the way to experts. Best time to go is in the morning, when the water is smooth. The earlier you go the more you will see and hear! Whales can be head from in the water! There have been sightings of small stingray and sometimes reef sharks. (Small, relatively harmless sharks)... More

There are a lot of great snorkelling spots in Maui, and lets be honest the same types of fish are at each. The reason some snorkelling spots are so special is because of the clarity, reefs, and general atmosphere. Ahihi bay is not overcrowded. It is a nature reserve so there is no fishing. It is challenging at some places... More

Following the advice from the book "Maui Revealed: the unltimate guidebook", we drove past the Big Beach at the Makena State park and looked for the Secret beach or Bay at the side of the wall by the road. Finding the opening at the wall is an adventure in itself. Once we went through the hole, we came up to... More

The water was too murky to see anything at this location. The weather during our visit was overcast, perhaps it's better on a clearer day.

Maui is blessed with several awesome snorkeling spots; this may be our favorite. There are loads of fish, big and small, clear and colorful, all in a calm bay with the clearest water covering spectacular reefs. Great for small kids.

This is a small cove, and was labeled as such on our map. it's like being in an aquarium- there were so many fish!! The road cuts right along side of it and is quite narrow with no shoulder and you have to pass the cove and park down the road at a public parking area. The side closest to... More

We couldn't get enough of this place! I wish we had more time because it was gorgeous in every way! Clear water, healthy coral, lots of fish and turtles everywhere!

Ahihi Bay is a nice snorkeling area. Make sure you enter from the right of the beach, as some sections are protected. The coral was especially unique at this beach. We went early and had no trouble finding parking, but by the time we left there were quite a few more people coming.
