Our experienced crew will choose the best location for the day and give you personalized instruction, ensuring you're confidently swimming among the fish in no time!

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).

Ka'anapali is ideally located for enjoying the many ocean adventures we offer including sailing, snorkeling, and whale watching. 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!

My wife and I enjoyed a great morning on the Discover Ka'anapali snorkel trip. Mark, Carrie, Dan, Sydney, and A-aron were a fantastic crew that really looked after all their guests. The whole operation was very professional, safety first, let's have fun, attitude. The boat looked brand new and featured rest rooms large enough to stand up in, not a small marine head. Excellent instructions for snorkelers that needed it, and leave you alone if you were experienced. We were rewarded with very calm waters so the reef was easy to enjoy. Food was prepared right on the boat so our green salad at lunch was nice and fresh. They were great about accommodating my gluten free diet. One very nice touch was that the cocktails they served are made to order, not sitting in a jug to fill a cup. Oh, and getting no and off the boat from the beach was a lot of fun and very well orchestrated.

Husband, three kids and I went on a 5 hour snorkeling/sail from Kaanapali. It was AMAZING! Boat wasn’t crowded (key for us), service was excellent, and the snorkeling was great even after storms the previous couple of days. Got to snorkel Honolua Bay and it was the best snorkeling we’ve ever done! Five stars for Triogy and Emily and her crew! Even though the weather wasn’t looking good Emily never gave up and we had an amazing experience.

I can not say enough great things about our snorkel trip! The entire crew on the Trilogy was amazing - captains Kevin, Carrie and Michael along with Gillian and Justin - they knew all our names almost instantly and did everything possible to make us feel welcome, safe and made sure we were enjoying ourselves. We had our two young children with us and they went the extra mile to make sure they had a great time and were very accommodating getting them little wet suits and encouraging them to snorkel. Had a delicious cinnamon rolls to start off the day and BBQ later - super nice this boat has lots of tables making it really easy to eat. Right away we saw a school of dolphins so they slowed the boat down so we could watch. Leo was on board taking pictures and got some really great shots of my family / really cool under water pics. We have been on many catamaran snorkel trips and this was top notch! Thanks for a great memory!
