If you are truly adventurous, like the wind in your hair and the thrill of discovering a side of the island that only a few will see... this wet and wild snorkel excursion, Dolphin Discovery, is for you! Ocean Rafting Tours typically go to the Kanaio Coast as well as La Perouse, past Dolphin Cove, where a pod of spinner dolphins live. Along the way, we almost always see the endangered green sea turtles and during the months between December and April, the awesome humpback whales.The weather dictates our snorkel sites and destinations. We snorkel at two or more spots. The possibilities include the marine preserve Molokini, the rugged Kanaio Coast, La Perouse,Olowalu, Turtle Arches, and the beautiful Coral Gardens. In between our stops our crew will share their knowledge of the ancient history and cultural practices and whatever nature and her beauty have in store for us, you can be sure it will be exciting! (Licensed for 71 passengers, we will take only a small group for maximum comfort with no more than 45 passengers per excursion.) We serve you a continental breakfast featuring fresh bagels with cream cheese, jams, tropical fruit, Kona coffee and juices. Once we get to our second snorkel site, the crew fires up the barbeque for a delicious hot-off-the grill lunch. Lunch includes; hamburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, served with all the fixings and Maui Potato Chips along with macadamia nut cookies for dessert. We feature an open bar of beer, wine and sodas. All of your snorkel gear and instruction are provided. Disposable 35mm underwater cameras are available for purchase on board and we have optional SNUBA dives for an additional $59, to the instructor.

The captain is a lady and she is good at her job, felt safe on the water and under way on the boat, it was a snorkel trip with an additional whale trip. Breakfast and lunch served adult beverages and kid beverages about 500$ for the four of us and air y every penny to tip the deck hands well!

We had a picture perfect day to experience the pacific waters around Maui on Maui Magic. Calm seas, blue skies and leaping whales like you see on TV. The snorkeling was breath taking, like swimming in an aquarium, stunning fish of all types. Treated first class w good grilled food, beer and cocktails, just a perfect day enjoying the scenery.

We had a wonderful experience booking with Maui Magic. The boat is a great size allowing for a moderate amount of people and had several options for seating. The crew was friendly, informative and knowledgeable. The first stop at Molokini for snorkeling was spectacular. For our next snorkeling spot the crew was intent on finding the best snorkeling spot for... More

They promises Molokini, but we never went there. Buyer beware they are a whale watching cruse disguised as a snortkling trip. Food was good.

This trip was ok. We saw some fish, turtles on the shore, coral. We didn't get to go to the Molokini crater because the captain advised against it since the water there was rougher than normal.
