  • West Maui: Snorkel & Performance Sail with Lunch

    1. West Maui: Snorkel & Performance Sail with Lunch

    Nobody knows the waters of Maui better than this local crew. Let them be your hosts as you explore and snorkel the incredible West Maui coast on Paragon. What’s your destination? Some local favorites are Olowalu, Honolua, and Mokuleia Bay, but the Captain will decide where the absolute best conditions are for the day. Depart Lahaina and head for the snorkel spot, usually about an hour away by boat. Spend some time snorkeling, viewing some of Maui’s most amazing underwater sea life.  Breakfast and lunch are provided, as well as all refreshments including local beer, wine, and Mai Tais. Tradewinds usually pick up in the afternoon, just in time for an exhilarating sail back to the harbor.

    We sailed with Captain Justin and mates Matt and Harper. They were exceptional hosts on the Paragon. We traveled through a large group of spinner dolphins on our way out to the cove where we went snorkeling. The water was so clear you could easily see the bottom even in the deepest places. The number of fish and the variety was amazing! We ha a couple of nervous swimmers and the staff reassured us every step of the way. The sail back to the harbor was smooth and very fast! We would absolutely sail with Justin again!

Bailey and her crew were amazing. Attentive crew, great boat ride to a beautiful snorkeling spot. Smaller catermaran with only a few families on board, I believe there was less than 25 people on our trip, so not crowded at all. A passenger spotted some dolphins and Bailey turned the boat and went towards where he saw them jump. Bailey was able to get us close to the pod and made sure everyone was able to get the pictures they wanted. Cant wait to go back and do another trip with the crew.

the crew was AMAZING, treated everyone so friendly and welcoming, they were very knowledgeable and helpful and genuinely wanted everyone to have the BEST time. The patience of LILLY AND BEN will forever be in my gratitude
