The Blue Water Maui "Floating Island"
Perfect for "Drift Snorkeling" or just relaxing on the water...
Our 22 foot long floating islands are a Blue Water Maui exclusive.
You won't find this much fun (or floating islands) with ANY other tour operator on Maui!
Experience Maui Underwater
Come SCUBA dive with us!
Maui is just as beautiful under water as it is above it!
Have you always wanted to SCUBA dive?
We have PADI Certified Instructors to train you for your first Introductory SCUBA dive.
Our Intro SCUBA adventure is real SCUBA diving with new top line gear. No hookah systems and no metal helmets here.
You can do it and you will love it!
Bring your camera and come dive with us.
Our new and well maintained Cressi gear is included,
or you can bring your own.
Our boats offer the smoothest, most stable and driest rides in the islands. They are U.S. Coast Guard certified to carry up to 26 people. At 38' long and 13' wide, they are extremely spacious and comfortable. Every seat is a padded seat. The inflatable tube around our boats act as a shock absorber for waves and as a splash deflector. We have very large swim and dive ladders to make it easy for you to get back into the boat after enjoying the water.
Our boats also employ a state of the art hydrophone system (underwater microphone) which plays, live, the majestic song of the whales through our crystal clear audio system (during the winter whale season only).

Where do we go?
Our Captain's choose the Snorkel and SCUBA spots daily.
We pick the spots with the best conditions for each day, based upon weather and ocean conditions. Other tours go to the same destinations every day, we don't because we want you to have the best experience that you could have on each day.
Our daily destinations may include:
Lanai - Sweet Heart Rock, Shark Fin, Menele Bay, Dino, Fish Rock, Kampachi Caves, First and Second Cathedral, Club Lanai, Shipwrecks, The Spires and other locations.
Maui: Honolua Bay, Cliff House, Coral Gardens, Olowalu, Shark Pit, Black Rock, Mala Pier, Carthgenian, and other locations.
Molokai: We only visit Molokai on Private Tours and on perfect weather days.
U.S. Coast Guard Approved
Our boats and crew are USCG inspected and certified for safety. Our dive team has thousands of dives in Maui waters and are certified instructors and dive masters. We carry Oxygen kits on the boats for emergencies.

Can I hear the Whale Songs?
Yes! (only during the Winter Whale Season)
Thanks to our state of the art audio system, we pick up and underwater whale songs and play them through the boats crystal clear JL audio system. The experience is one you will never forget.
Will we see dolphins?
There's a good chance!
Maui county is home to thousands of dolphins among three major types, Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins, Spotted Dolphins and Bottlenose Dolphins. We see them on our snorkel tours about 75% of the time. They occasionally will even join in the snorkel tour and swim with guests.
We collect your shoes on our welcome mat before boarding. They will be kept safe and dry. Our vessels all have soft padded decks for your comfort and better traction when wet.
It's Hawaiian tradition to remove your shoes before entering a house.
It's boating tradition to remove your shoes before pleasure boating!
This helps keep our soft decking in top shape and keeps the boat nice and clean.
About the Weather...
Don't call us, we'll call you.
We suggest you spend you time on Maui enjoying it's beauty and leave worrying about the weather to the professionals....us! Maui has EVERY climate in on earth and extreme micro-climates. One of these climates is..... Tropical Rain Forrest! So, it rains every day somewhere on Maui, but not where we go play on the water.
Your weather app on your phone is pretty much useless here. If there's an issue with the weather for the time of your trip we will contact you as soon as possible. Please make sure to use a good mobile phone number for calls and texts from us about your trip.
If you must keep up with the weather while on your vacation, we suggest you use an app called Windy and you must use the "NAM" model for accuracy in Hawaii.
How crowded are your tours?
Personalized hospitality with Aloha!
Our vessels are USCG certified to carry 26 passengers plus crew, but in order to provide the best experience possible, we limit our snorkel tours to a maximum of 18 passengers and our whale watches to 20 passengers.
We want you to experience the best in personalized aloha and and we refuse to pack our boats full. On our snorkel tours, we often have three crew members so our crew to passenger ratio is the highest you will find. Our team really shines when it comes to personal interaction and they love to share their local knowledge, both above and below the water!
Meet us at the Water!
We depart from, and return to, the Mala Boat Ramp located on the North end of Front Street in Lahaina.
There's a parking lot near the boat ramp or you can park along the street.
There are restroom facilities in the parking lot.
