About Blue Water Maui
Whale watch, snorkel and SCUBA diving adventures....with Aloha! We depart from Lahaina, Maui multiple times daily. We have the best jobs in the world and it shows, we are fun and professional. Unique to our Snorkel trips is that we offer a no experience required "Intro SCUBA Experience". This is not a hookah, snuba or other fake SCUBA, but real SCUBA Diving with a certified SCUBA instructor. As well, we offer certified SCUBA divers the option to dive on our tours. We also offer a unique "Whale of a Sunset" tour with a Champagne / Wine sunset toast. If you want the boat to yourself, you'll love our custom private charters.

Snorkeling waters rich in marine life is a highlight of a trip to Maui, but it's not always easy to know where is the best place to go given the day's conditions. Ensure you find the right spot on this guided tour from Lahaina, which takes you snorkeling around coral gardens and amongst colorful schools of fish and green sea turtles. Scuba diving is also available for both experienced and new divers. While not underwater, lounge around on a floating mat or enjoy lunch and snacks onboard.

Greatly increase your chances of seeing humpback whales in the wild on this whale watching trip to the Pailolo Channel off the West Maui coast. In a small boat—in the company of guides with deep knowledge of whale behavior in these waters—get as close as respectfully possible to the gentle giants. To make the experience even more magical, listen to whale songs through the boat's high performance Hydrophone audio system.

Spend an afternoon in paradise when you explore the Pacific Ocean on a 2.5 hour afternoon snorkel adventure. Swim with tropical fish, coral gardens, and maybe even meet a honu (green sea turtle) at one of the best snorkel sites on West Maui. Get support from your professional guide, and enjoy a snack of fresh fruit, chips and dip, and refreshing beverages.

This was our 15th trip to Maui and this snorkel adventure was amazing. Despite an unusual South Swell, which made the waters choppy and difficult, the excellent crew was able to find serene spots for snorkeling. We saw dolphins, sea turtles and hundreds of exotic...More

Great trip and great crew. Captain Chad was very good, helpful and informative. Boat and equipment was in excellent condition. Only company on the island that had a float pad so you could enjoy the under water adventure even if you couldn’t swim.More

Aloha, on our group tours we allow children 2 and up. A better option for you may be a private tour, in which you can bring children of any age.
