Snorkelling and Scuba-diving on Maui
Explore the unseen side of Maui under the sea. Snorkel off Maui’s most pristine beaches or scuba dive around Maui’s most popular reefs to see colourful fish, sea turtles and coral formations. Most resort beaches along West Maui and South Maui offer opportunities for snorkellers. The northernmost part of Kaanapali Beach near Black Rock is known for great snorkelling.
The small, crescent shaped island of Molokini off the southwestern coast of Maui is a popular destination for snorkelling and diving. In fact, the waters and colourful reefs here are so rich with life, Molokini was named a State Marine Life and Bird Conservation District. Molokini is only accessible by boat tour. Tours are available from nearby Maalaea Harbor in Kihei and Lahaina Harbor on Maui’s western shores.
