So you’re getting ready for a Hawaiian vacation to Maui and making your plans, what’s fun and going to make the list? Here are some ideas for Maui activities to help in your planning of what to do under the hot Hawaiian sun.
Make a splash with Maui Activities
Maui has some of the best snorkeling in all of Hawaii, and an underwater adventure should definitely be one of the Maui activities on your list. Along with the excellent diving spots, there is a vibrant marine wildlife habitat beneath the surface just waiting for you to explore!
Diving off the tiny island of Molokini is one of the most amazing oceanic experiences you can have in Hawaii, and for good reason. The renown reefs of Molokini Island are considered on of the top ten diving spots in the world.
Located about 2.5 miles offshore of Ma’alaea Bay just south of Kihei and Wailea, this ancient sunken volcanic crater is home to over 250 species of fish. The island has some of the best diving conditions due to it’s crescent shape blocking currents and producing visibility up to 150 feet.
Make new friends with dolphins and turtles!
On the Lanai Wild Dolphin Snorkel Tour, spend the morning exploring the reefs of Molokini and head across the channel to Lanai. A popular hangout for Spinner and Bottlenose Dolphins, spend the afternoon motoring through Hawaii’s tropical sea!
Or you can visit the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle at the turtle arches of Molokini. These ancient volcanic arches are home to these gentle sea creatures, and the arches they call home are an incredible formation.
Not a strong swimmer? Thats OK! Floatation devices are available for assistance or to just cruise on and take a break from diving.
The coolest part about Maui snorkeling tours is the 120 foot catamaran of the Pacific Whale Foundation. Steps on the stern allow for easy aquatic entry and exit, there’s a water slide! Tropical breakfast, BBQ lunch, and refreshing beverages are also included with your tour!
Sail away on a sunset dinner cruise
If exploring the underwater world sounds a little too fishy for your liking, you can still enjoy the enchantment of the sea on a sunset dinner cruise. Table-side entertainment, savory dishes, delicious wine, and a spectacular Maui sunset will make this unforgettable experience the most special evening on your vacation.
Make your vacation the most memorable one you have ever had with these fun and exciting Maui activities.
