Kayak & Snorkel the Sensational Central Maui Coastline!

This is an intermediate tour, for advanced paddlers and adults only.

This is an uber-private Maui snorkeling adventure where we tuck in along the beautiful south-facing sea cliffs that tower over the coral gardens below. We also see the humpback whales up close during the winter months!

The paddling distance can be over 4 miles, and we snorkel with the varied tropical marine life two different times! No other tour combines privacy and access to marine life in the way our Sea Cliffs tour does. Due to the longer nature of the tour, we do limit it to those aged 16 and over only. If you have younger kids, please check out the Discovery Tour.

We get going at 7 a.m. and continue until around 11:00 a.m.

Guides Are the Difference
Our guides show you all of the underwater spectacles themselves, as we are the only snorkeling outfitter that always gets right in the water with you.
They anchor the boats, gear you up, point out marine life, and regale you with tales of yesteryear and Hawaiian legend all through the tour.
Service is the difference, and we pride ourselves on personal attention and first-class service.
Tread Lightly
Unlike the big gas-guzzling power boats that visit the Molokini, Kapalua, and Makena coastlines, we show you all the underwater highlights and above-water scenery in a completely environmentally friendly way.

Our kayaks are a zero-emissions way to see nature, they don’t disturb the marine life or their environment, and they allow us to access some unique spots that you normally can’t get to. Let us show you how we do it. You’re guaranteed to love it!

We had a great time on this trip! We do kayak a little (but only on our local pond at home!) and this was a great introduction to sea kayaking. Our guide Jacob was excellent. We ended up being the only two on this trip, so it turned into a private tour. Jacob showed us how to get in and out of the kayak and then we hit the waves - and immediately ran into some whales. We ended up getting super close to a mom-calf-escort group, and they circled our kayaks (!!). We snorkeled in a great location with perfect visibility, and we were the only three there. We had all the fish and the coral to ourselves. If you are looking for a tour to a more secluded location and you are up for a paddle, this is the one for you!
