Take the rare opportunity to explore the lava arches, grottos and underwater sea caves of the volcanic Kanaio Coast in South Maui. See spinner dolphins and green sea turtles in their natural habitat on this exciting, 16 passenger power-raft snorkel tour.  

What to Expect

  • The uninhabited Kanaio Coast, or “Gold Coast” is largely inaccessible by car
  • A small power-raft tour of Maui with a small group of snorkelers is the ideal way to experience the island’s incalculable beauty
  • 200 years ago at Kanaio, molten lava exploded from a side vent of Haleakala creating unique formations visible in the ocean today
  • Snorkel with green sea turtles, tropical fish, and colorful reef
  • Included are tropical juices, Hawaiian breads for breakfast and a stop at Makena to relax with a delicious buffet lunch

The Details

  • Snorkelers have reported being approached by dolphins in the water, while spotted manta rays are sometimes present while snorkeling near Makena
  • Get expert instruction on snorkel techniques and safety, then experience multiple snorkel stops including an exciting “drift” snorkel
  • Enjoy regularly unseen views of the slopes of Haleakala
  • Your knowledgeable, friendly snorkel guides will illustrate the history, ecology, and mythology of the area
  • A half-day trip makes planning for an evening activity easy

Bookings made inside 48 hours of the activity are tentative and must be confirmed with a vacation specialist for availability.

Here’s what folks are saying about Blue Water Rafting on Trip Advisor:

“My thanks to the crew at Blue Water Rafting. They take the time to get to know the people in the boat, their names and abilities.  The crew made everyone feel comfortable and let us swim at our own pace. If something interesting shows up, whales, dolphins, etc, they’ll take time and go the extra mile to show you the sights.”

“The crew who took us out at Blue Water Rafting was outstanding in every way.  They take you on a tour of the remote southern shore of Maui, dipping in and out of sea caves made of the most recently made volcanic rock on the island. It was breathtaking and unforgettable.”

We recommend renting quality, custom fit snorkel gear every time. Here’s why:

  • Quality matters: The “non thinking”, dry-mouth snorkel keeps water from your mouth 2 different ways
  • Get more water time: Exceptional comfort will keep you snorkeling longer AND you’ll skip the line for gear on the boat’s deck 
  • Snorkel all week long: For only $27.50/week you’ll get our top quality snorkel set and you’ll get a free beach map that will illustrate the best spots to snorkel in Maui
