All of our snorkeling tours are essentially combination snorkel/ whale watch tours during the "whale season" (December - April) as we almost always encounter one or more pods of humpbacks enroute to our snorkeling destinations. We stop to
observe and listen, using sensitive
Whale Watch from Wailea Introduced in 2006, our morning whale watches were so successful that we have brought them back again this year. Every year more Humpbacks are visiting our Maui waters and the shows they have put on in south Maui have been fantastic! More Of The Tour ... (click on photos to enlarge)

|Ocean rafting on a "state of the art" rigid hulled inflatable, is an experience that should not be missed. Powered by environmentally friendly outboards of the latest design up to a combined 450 HP, these ultra stable craft power impressively through both light chop and blue water as we explore the Kanaio Coast sea caves .|
|The Kanaio Coast was first offered to the Maui visitor by Blue
Water Rafting back in 1987.
Lava arches, caves, and pinnacles unique to this area are the result of lava pouring from side vents into the sea a mere 200 years before.

One of the most cherished and delightful
experiences that one can encounter is an interaction
with a pod of pacific spinner dolphins. These playful
mammals feed in the offshore waters at night and come
inshore during the daytime to rest. They often approach us when
in La Perouse Bay or in some area near to the Kanaio Coast.
When encountered enroute, they can put on an incredible show of acrobatic leaps, flips, and spins, often just off our bow. Surfing our bow wave is one of their favorite pastimes, and on many occasions they have joined us while snorkeling at one of our many snorkeling sites. They are, however, wild
dolphins and no guarantees can be made as to their
wherabouts or behaviors. Also, as they are a protected
species, restrictions do apply.
