If you are truly adventurous, like the wind in your hair and the thrill of discovering a side of the island that only a few will see... this wet and wild snorkel excursion, Dolphin Discovery, is for you! Ocean Rafting Tours typically go to the Kanaio Coast as well as La Perouse, past Dolphin Cove, where a pod of spinner dolphins live. Along the way, we almost always see the endangered green sea turtles and during the months between December and April, the awesome humpback whales.The weather dictates our snorkel sites and destinations. We snorkel at two or more spots. The possibilities include the marine preserve Molokini, the rugged Kanaio Coast, La Perouse,Olowalu, Turtle Arches, and the beautiful Coral Gardens. In between our stops our crew will share their knowledge of the ancient history and cultural practices and whatever nature and her beauty have in store for us, you can be sure it will be exciting! (Licensed for 71 passengers, we will take only a small group for maximum comfort with no more than 45 passengers per excursion.)We serve you a continental breakfast featuring fresh bagels with cream cheese, jams, tropical fruit, Kona coffee and juices. Once we get to our second snorkel site, the crew fires up the barbeque for a delicious hot-off-the grill lunch. Lunch includes; hamburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs,served with all the fixings and Maui Potato Chips along with macadamia Nut cookies for dessert. We feature an open bar of beer, wine and sodas. All of your snorkel gear and instruction are provided. Disposable 35mm underwater cameras are available for purchase on board and we have optional SNUBA dives for an additional $59, to the instructor.

We picked Maui Magic after comparing a number of other snorkelling companies. Maui magic offered the most of what we were after, Molokini, turtles, dolphins and whales. Unfortunately mother nature had other ideas and both Molokini and dolphins were unlikely to happen as we boarded due to the wind. The captain explained this before we left but was going to... More

We went for the Molokni and sea turtle snorkel, and had a blast! The Captain took time as well to see near by whales. Smiling Bob was so nice and helpful as was the rest of the crew. It was my birthday and they made it special. The burgers on the grill were great. Also, as we came to Maui... More

This charter was great. Smaller boat, great crew. Weather conditions were not the best but they knew where to go to still provide a wonderful snorkel experience. The smaller boat was so much better than crowding onto a larger boat too many people. Highly recommend Maui Magic for a snorkel charter

The crew was excellent and captain steered so we could view whale activity, which there was a lot of. Tried to get to Molokini , but waves not conducive to snorkeling. The other two spots were very good and we had adequate time to snorkel for a good time. Crew is helpful and even a first time snorkeler would feel... More

My boyfriend and I had a lot of fun on the Maui Magic Adventure tour. The crew was excellent – very accommodating. Breakfast was good but nothing special – bagels and cream cheese, fruit and coffee/tea/juice. We went the second week in November and as soon as we left the harbor, we saw a humpback whale and its baby as... More

We chose this tour for the combo whale watch and snorkeling that was offered. At this time of year, you'll see whales for sure. The captain was very good at positioning the boat to see good whale activity. Snorkeling at Molokini was canceled due to high seas. The alternative sites were fine and calm. They normally stop at two sites.... More

I recently did a trip aboard Maui Magic with my dad on February 8, 2015. First of all, the crew and staff was too notch. Fun, informative, and great cooks to boot! We saw sooooo many whales on our trip. At least 30 of them. They were breaching, tail flipping, you name it, we saw it. The snorkeling at the... More

We were lucky enough to book a last minute snorkel/whale watching excursion on the Maui Magic. We were pleased to see only 20-25 people on the ship that could clearly hold more than 40 passengers. Check in went swiftly, but boarding was a bit precarious over the rickety gang plank. The crew is pleasant but the ship is very old... More

When selecting snorkeling cruises, my two friends and I cautiously chose Maui Magic. All the Tripadvisor reviews were excellent, but everyone is still concerned they chose the right cruise. Oh boy did we choose the right one! It was FANTASTIC! Hoping on board the Maui Magic we were greeted with smiles, coffee (a wonderful thing at 7am), bagels and fruit.... More

We had a wonderful trip and enjoyed the awesome lunch prepared by Bob - the "Maui Wowie" burgers were so good! We saw the whales and snorkeled Molokini Crater and La Perouse Bay. It was nice to be on a smaller vessel with fewer people - my daughters got to stretch out and enjoy the sun.
