Discover Olowalu

Trilogy Excursions (4.8)

Combine the best of both worlds: relaxation and adventure! Snorkel Olowalu and explore one of the largest turtle cleaning stations in Hawaii!

Join us on the perfect excursion that leaves room for you to fit more into your day. Conveniently depart from Lahaina Harbor and enjoy assorted tropical fruit as we set sail to Maui's mother reef - Olowalu*. This massive reef south of Lahaina is over 1,000 acres in size and has corals over 1500 years old.

Olowalu is special for many reasons, most notably for its Turtle cleaning station and its mass production of coral polyps. Snorkeling Olowalu is one of the very best sites on Maui! After working up an appetite, you are served a BBQ chicken lunch - dine in leisure and relax out in the sun as your crew serves you cold drinks.

Capacity is limited in order to give everyone plenty of space for lounging and personalized attention throughout the trip. *If weather prevents us from exploring Olowalu, we will choose the next best location.

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 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!

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.

Great experience with Triology! They were very accomodating to me as I waited in line to pay for parking (hint: Get to the harbor by 730-745) with a "no worries" attitude. They went above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable and kept the excitement going all day. The first stop to Molokini was great, giving everyone about an hour in the water before having a deliciously prepared lunch and a trip to see more turtles closer to land. The way home was fun with beer and other beverages. The entire time a photographer was with us, using her underwater camera to get some great shots of all the families and couples in the water. We ended up purchasing her online album individualized for us and got some great shots to go with the memories. HIGHLY recommended!
