Sail aboard Maui’s premier luxury catamaran and swim in some of nature's most beautiful waters

Our Snorkel Sail Deluxe offers snorkel stops at two of Maui's most vibrant reefs, Molokini crater and Turtle Arches in South Maui. You can participate in a guided "snorkel safari" with our trained water specialist; snorkeling on reefs that are abundant with sea life, including the green sea turtle, an endangered species.

Molokini is an ancient crater located inside a marine reserve. Expect spectacular water clarity and a pristine coral reef. Rated one of the best snorkeling spots in the world, this reef has a stunning variety (more than 400) of reef fish and animals, many of which (more than 25%) are only found in Hawaii. Occasionally we see dolphins, whales, manta rays, and sometimes the rare Hawaiian monk seal. December through the end of April is also a great time to see Humpback whales in the National Marine Sanctuary.

Turtle Arches is located off the South Maui shores near Makena State Park and offers a large coral reef system. The caverns and ledges in the coral and lava create the perfect habitat for sponges, coral, octopus, fish, eel, lobster, and shrimp. The highlight of this reef is the number of Honu or Sea Turtles that gather to be cleaned by fish known as Hawaiian Cleaner Wrasse.

went on my first snorkel cruise on the deluxe cruise and had so much fun. Great helpful staff to help us beginner snorkelers. Also did the Huka snuba and really enjoyed that too.

Took the deluxe snorkel cruise to Molokini. The boat, crew, food, drinks and equipment were top notch. And you can’t beat the location! Highly recommended.

A couple of weeks ago we had the distinct pleasure of hopping aboard the Alli Nui for the Snorkel Sail Deluxe. I had not booked our trip in advance but the staff very kindly found room for our family of 3. On the morning of the trip, one of the crew picked us up in one of their vans. Not having to drive to and from the harbor was a treat. Although the price is up there, my husband and I agreed it was well worth the it. Everything they do is 5-stars. The saying: “You get what you pay for” rings true in this case for certain. The Captain and staff are very attentive on the catamaran as well as while you are in the water. The food is plentiful and delicious. The snorkel equipment is excellent as well. Towels and sunscreen are provided. We especially appreciated that although the capacity is 100, they cap it at 60. This make for a very comfortable time for everyone. You can really move around as much as you like. All around a wonderful time. I have my sights set on the Royal Sunset Sail. We’ll be back on the DELUXE Molokini Catamaran next time we are on Maui for sure. Mahalo to the DELUXE Molokini Catamaran family.
