Afternoon Snorkel Sail


Experience a great afternoon snorkel adventure to Turtle Point aboard the premier sailing catamaran on Maui

Come aboard and experience a great afternoon adventure with the Royal Treatment! If you don't like to get up early, this is the trip for you! This excursion begins at 1:00 pm with our destination being the famous Turtle Point (weather permitting). This area has the second longest continuous reef on Maui and has a local population of Hawaiian Honu (green sea turtles).

Watch these protected creatures as they rest on the bottom or glide gently over colorful coral beds. The Green Sea Turtles are an endangered species and must not be touched or harassed. They are very curious animals and often allow snorkelers a good look from just a few feet away. We will not set sail so we can provide you with maximum snorkel time on this three-hour trip.

Turtle Point
Turtle Point offers Maui's largest coral reef system nestled in the protected bays at the base of the West Maui Mountains. The reef and ledges in the coral and lava create the perfect habitat for sponge, coral, fish, eel, and shrimp. The highlight of this reef is the number of Green Sea Turtles that gather here to be cleaned by fish known as the Hawaiian Cleaner Wrasse.

Cannot say enough about this trip! My wife and I did the deluxe trip with the huka dive option and every single detail exceeded expectations. The crew is incredibly fun, accommodating and friendly. The food was superb (breakfast, snacks, and lunch), as well as the bar options. The swim sites provided beautiful reefs and wildlife. These ladies turned it up to 11! Would definitely do again and again. Alex and Ashley 6/10/18

I've gone out with them 3 times, twice for molikini snorkeling and once for the sunset Cruise, every time was awesome. Service is impeccable and staff is great. No complaints at all. Worth the cost.

Our second time on this boat, and it was as wonderful as the first. Super attentive staff, great seating, excellent food and drinks. It has spoiled us, there are no other “snorkel” tours that will ever compare to this one. So if you go on this one, prepare for future disappointment if you go on any others. We have been on many, many boats over the years, none compare to the Afternoon Snorkel Sail.

Hands down the best cruise I've taken in a long time. The custom-built catamaran is wonderfully scaled, the crew is phenomenally warm, accommodating, and fun, and you can't beat the venue. Then, to top it all off, we encountered our first whale pod... like literally 2 minutes out of the slip! Couldn't have been better choreographed if they tried. Even the food was great. I typically have a low bar but in that regard but was really pleasantly surprised with the food and top shelf cocktails. Easily worth the small premium over comparable options. The only improvement I could think of is somehow adding built in cup holders along the deck. When the wind kicks up and the whales pop, it gets hard to hold everything 😉

My wife and I went on the sunset sail during March and it was an amazing experience. For some reason it turned out we were just 8 passengers total, so it was a ver private experience. After leaving the harbor, the winds calmed and it was beautiful. The scenery, crew, food, drinks, sunset and the whales were amazing. We truly couldn't have hoped for a better sailing experience. And they have a shuttle that picks and drops you off at your hotel. How awesome is that? A many thanks to captain Trent, Nikita, Marcio and Johanna. They really went above and beyond to make our sail an unforgettable experience.
