Full description

Departing from historic Lahaina Harbor, your adventure begins aboard Ocean Spirit, a 65-foot luxury sailing catamaran. Relax and enjoy the sights and the sun while eating a continental breakfast of coffee, pastries, and fruit platters as we cruise up the beautiful Ka'anapali coastline to the breathtaking beauty of Honolua Bay.  Honolua Bay is protected as a marine conservation area and is one of Maui’s most scenic snorkel spots. After a safety briefing, snorkeling instruction, and fish identification session, you'll be able to enjoy the marine environment. Premium snorkel gear, including optical masks for glasses wearers, is provided, as well as flotation devices. Children can participate in the Jr. Naturalist program, and you'll get a glossy marine wildlife photo card to take home.

Snorkel at two secluded spots popular with sea turtles, colorful fish, and vibrant coral and enjoy free guided reef tours by certified Marine Naturalists. Wild dolphin sightings are also common during the journey. You just never know what you'll see and every day is a unique experience. Once you're done snorkeling, feast on a delicious lunch of grilled chicken, pork, and various mouth-watering salads. Relax as we head out into the channel for a thrilling sail back to the harbor.

This was a great trip and supports a worthy cause. The crew was very friendly, food was good, and snorkeling excellent. I highly recommend PacWhale Foundation trips.
