Convenient beach boarding, allows you to access to some of Maui's best dive sites quickly for swimming and snorkeling. Discover Ka'anapali is a photographer's dream with spectacular views of Moloka'i, Lana'i and the majestic West Maui Mountains as a backdrop! From the pristine waters of Honolua Bay* to the expansive shallows of Olowalu*, Maui's West coast offers some of Hawai'i's most unspoiled coral reef ecosystems, known for their abundance of fish and honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles).

It is the only location where we actually pick up and drop off guests directly from the beach. Some of the best Maui snorkel sites are only a few miles away and our crew will choose the best destination for that day. Our experienced and dedicated crew are masters of teaching first-time snorkelers. If you're a pro and want an underwater experience that goes beyond snorkeling, you may want to try SNUBA, one of our most popular upgrades. With Maui’s famous tradewinds just a few hundred yards offshore, our crew wastes no time in hoisting the sails and getting underway!

Trilogy always does an amazing job with excellent food, costumer service and of course great snorkeling. The Discover Kaanapali tour was great with a take off from Kaanapali Beach! We had a fantastic trip to Honolua and Slaughterhouse Bay with great fish and turtle sightings. The trip was capped off with some great whale watching despite the late season. Kudos to the crew: Adam, Lowell, Mike and Captain Kevin.

On Valentine's Day we enjoyed the Kaanapali snorkel Trilogy tour. This ways my fifth time to Maui and my fifth Trilogy sail trip. Captain Kevin, Captain Carrie, Lowell and Randy did an outstanding job! They take the time to learn your name. trilogy is known for great customer service and this tour certainly lived up to that standard. We did the snuba option. Randy was extremely patience with us as we became comfortable with the snuba gear. He gave us great tips and took great care of us. Outstanding job by captain Kevin and the crew on the return back to the departure beach as we actually has the pleasure of sailing. This is always my number one activity for Maui.

My son & I (mom needed a day to herself) embarked on the Kaanapali snorkel trip from Trilogy on August 14th. This was the second year in a row we did this trip and it was great!!! As usual the crew was exceptional: Capt. Kevin, Capt. Katie, Thomas & Ryan did a great job of catering to our every need. Can't wait until next year to book this trip again.

We went on a snorkeling trip and it was a great experience. The boat was comfy, the food was delicious and restrooms were nice. The staff kept a close eye on the weaker swimmers and were immediately bringing in any struggling swimmers. The island was the first stop and was gorgeous with tons of fish, sea urchins, and coral. The second spot didn’t have much to offer and people returned to the boat rather quickly after getting into the water. They have a good reef safe sunscreen to use on the boat free of charge as the normal sunblock kills the coral and is a big no no.

We had a great day snorkeling at Molokini. The crew were excellent - polite and engaged while also laid back and fun. They were very knowledgeable about the area and provided great advice on where to find turtles and other marine life. The food was excellent too. We would book this tour again in a heartbeat.

My favorite thing we did on Maui. Kind and experienced staff, good food, and plenty of room to sit and enjoy the view — not to mention it was clear they cared about respecting and preserving their marine environment. Highly, highly recommend. Thanks Capt. Pat, Willie, and everyone else!

This was a great day, great cruise and exceptional crew. Each member of the crew showed off their talents and shined. Our captain made us feel safe and made some tough calls due to unusual weather. A large contingent was sea sick while other were skilled divers. The crew brought us home under sail after an experience that was the best we could have. February is whale season, members of the crew shared facts about the whales, the islands history and the sport.

WE HAD A BLAST! If you are interested in trying snorkeling, don't start at the local beach. We tried that and found the waves were to much for us. On this cruise you'll get great service and they know where to go based on the weather and the ocean's conditions. We had a photographer on board, Aaron, and his shots we're fantastic. Don't bother bringing a underwater camera. Aaron took shots of my wife and I swimming together and added a bunch of great shots of us that I didn't know he was taking. We bought the package and it was well worth it. We had our mother in law with us and she had a great time too. Happy Swimming!
