Owner description: 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.

“Snorkel heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We can't express how wonderful our experience was on the maui magic snorkel cruise! The crew was extremely helpful and made us feel truly relaxed! The tour was very intimate with only about 30 participants! The boat was great! There was seating on top and on the bow. This made for easy viewing of the spinner dolphins and sea turtles we had the great pleasure to see! The food was also top notch! We can't wait to come back and snorkel again with the maui magic team!

“Maui magic is magic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Every time I come to Maui I take this boat to molokini crater. It's fast and fun. They have two snorkel spots, and run down to la perouse bay and go into open water for a thrill ride, I enjoy this boat and crew and everyone has a great time. Highly recommend.

“Maui Magic - Awesome Captain n Crew”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

My partner and I have been to Maui many times and have been on a few different boat tours. We decided to do another on this trip and were so happy that we did. Although some of the snorkeling off maui beaches is good – this boat takes you to places you can never see. This boat trip was exceptional right from the beginning….easy purchase online, easy checkin, and the crew was absolutely welcoming. They do not overcrowd this boat so the service is unbelievable. You feel very safe at all times. Dolphins, Turtles, and lots of fish.
The Captain and crew were so skilled and professional. The Captain went out of his way to take us snorkeling to spots that were conducive with the weather. He also made sure we seen as much of the wildlife on this boat trip as possible.
We highly recommend Maui Magic and will definitely be back on this boat the next chance we get!
Cheers to the Captian n Crew!

“Amazing crew, amazing day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

My wife and I decided to take this little adventure during our vacation on Maui, and it was an amazing, wonderful experience! The boat and crew were all exceptional in every way, genuinely friendly and helpful, anticipated needs, and went above and beyond what you would expect. They were all so skilled, knowledgable and professional, and by the time we docked at the end of the day, we felt like we had been with long-time friends. They helped my wife overcome a bit of anxiety about snorkeling, and she ended up thoroughly enjoying that experience. We saw a pod of dolphins, a beautiful fish-filled reef at Molokini, eagle rays and sea turtles! From the yummy continental breakfast & coffee to the amazing BBQ lunch, and everything in between, it was well worth it.
Our thanks to all the wonderful crew on the "Maui Magic"!
We would highly recommend this to all!

“Nice. Go for it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Cant add much beyond the great reviews that are already listed. As said, nice crew, nice adventure, nice lunch ...

Two things... Smaller boat was good. The ease of getting in/out, eating, etc... Much better here with smaller groups than other companies and big boats...
Second... Bring lotion suntan not the spray. They dislike the spray and it easier to lotion anyways.
