Full description
Quicksilver Maui Deluxe Lanai Snorkeling Tour is now offering an afternoon snorkeling charter to either the beautiful coasts of Lana’i island or the magnificent area of Lahaina Turtle Town! Lana’i boasts large coral reefs fringe the wild, remote, and sparsely populated island. The waters off Lanai are home to a pod of spinner dolphins made up of more than 100 individuals! Oftentimes, you will see spinners leap from the water while your double-deck catamaran makes her way to the snorkeling site at Manele Bay or Shark Fin Rock (named for its shape, not its underwater residents). If the weather is too rough or uncomfortable to our guests to cross the channel between Maui & Lana’i, we will take our guests to Lahaina Turtle Town where turtles are always seen in the wild amongst a variety of beautiful Hawaiian fish! Enjoy snorkeling the translucent waters of Maui, sure to leave you in awe with abundant sea life & unreal clear visibility. Lana'i is the destination of choice, however is weather dependent, and if weather does not cooperate, we will enjoy the Lahaina Turtle Town filled with various coral species, plentiful fish life & much more! Afternoon Snorkels on Maui are a treat! There are very few options that do afternoon snorkel charters, which allows us to bring you to an exclusive area that will be little to NO other tourism in the area - giving a unique experience you're sure to love. When traveling to the island of Lana'i it is common to encounter the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins, which jump and spin in the air! Lana'i has a resident pod of over 200 Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins! or Lahaina Turtle Town is a very unique and high desired snorkel location. Turtle cleaning stations, abundance of a variety reef fish, and more! This afternoon trip brings the possibility of experiencing an awesome boat snorkel charter without having to wake up at break of dawn to get to the morning trips! Sleep in, enjoy the morning & come for an awesome snorkel charter with us in the afternoon. We look forward to hosting you and your party! Whale Watch season officially starts December 1, 2021 so along with an awesome afternoon snorkel tour, you will have the opportunity to go Whale Watching too! Humpback Whales visit the Hawaiian Islands seasonally, so this is a combination of snorkeling a beautiful reef as well as go Whale Watching on the same tour.

Great staff, beautiful scenery on our trip to the snorkeling sight and beautiful ocean life. Fun for the whole family regardless of experience snorkeling. The captain who makes the experience both entertaining and educational gives a snorkeling 101 class and the staff is willing to help bring comfort to first timers gettingin the water. We had a range of people on the boat from super experienced to novices, ages ranging from 4-80. The crew was Covid safe and made the entire experience outstanding. I highly recommend!!

Definitely recommend snorkeling was amazing we got to see the turtles about 4 of them and so was the deep blue float was cool too. Adult Drinks were $3 each and we had hot dogs bags of chips and other snacks and also cookies available for food. Other drinks like water and sodas were included. We would definitely go back.

I can't say enough about how outstanding the entire crew of the Quicksilver charter was. They were friendly, knowledgeable, and highly trained in handling an emergency situation when my husband's sciatica flared up in his leg and hindered his ability to kick. Thank you to the crew, especially Cody, for quickly attending to my husband and getting him safely out of the water. Having the crew serve as lifeguards during the snorkeling excursion was well worth the money, especially if your swimming/snorkeling abilities, medical conditions, etc warrant some extra attention.
