Lahaina: Turtle Town Snorkel and Whale Watching Cruise

1. Lahaina: Turtle Town Snorkel and Whale Watching Cruise

Spot Hawaii's native marine life in its natural habitat on a snorkel cruise to Turtle Town from Lahaina. Swim past green sea turtles, Moorish idols, and even humpback whales.

Set sail from Lahaina Harbor towards Turtle Town, aka Mala Wharf (if weather conditions allow). In 1992, a powerful hurricane destroyed Mala Pier. The surviving posts have created an artificial reef and sanctuary where corals and other marine life thrive. Spot Moorish idols, green sea turtles, and saddle wrasse while snorkeling here. If snorkel conditions are not ideal at Turtle Town a.k.a. Mala Wharf, cruise to one of the other premier westside snorkel locations such as Honolua Bay, Airport Beach, or Launiupoko. All of these locations offer an excellent opportunity to see Hawaiian green sea turtles, brightly colored tropical fish, and beautiful coral reef formations. During the whale season (December to April), observe humpback whales as they enjoy the warm Hawaiian waters. This tour segment will include expert narration about the whales and provide a play-by-play commentary of the whales' behavior as you view them.

Awesome experience! Our driver was Charleston and he was great! Very knowledgeable about Hawaiian history & culture and very friendly. It is a long trip and we were in a Jeep, we loved every minute of it!

This was our first snorkeling trip ever! The boat and crew were excellent. Lunch was great too! Snorkeling with the sea turtles was so magical, I’m hooked and will definitely be doing it again.

So fun. You’ll stand up, have fun, and get some awesome pictures! Can’t thank Jordan and Maui beach boys for an awesome morning! My 7 year old daughter had so much fun!

We loved this trip! The ride on the catamaran sailboat was smooth and enjoyable and we saw a humpback whale! Also saw some turtles. The crew was excellent!
