Ocean Tours Off The Coast Of Maui
What are some different ocean tours you can take off the shore of Maui, Hawaii? What do you need to know about them?
You’ll see some amazing sights on your visit to Maui. But if you truly want to see everything there is to see and truly see "the island," you really need to see the island from the water. There are many different ways you can do that, and there are plenty of ocean cruises you can take to see Maui from the ocean. There are an array of dinner cruises and other ocean tours you can take to truly enjoy your experience.
• Captain Nemo’s Emporium. This is one of the nicest cruises you can take on the island. They typically leave on trips at 8 a.m. each day and return by 2 p.m. Captain Nemo’s is located on Front Street, and you can reach them by telephone at 661-5555.
• Trilogy Excursions. This is without a doubt the premier cruise ship on the island. They have two different ships, a 50-foot and a 40-foot boats. The tour leaves Manele Bay and serves you Kona coffe, juice and cinnamon buns. You can reach them at 661-4743.
• Maui Sailing Center. This cruise leaves out of Kihei. It can take only six passengers on its boat for a day-long snorkel sail in Molokini. You can reach them at 879-5935.
• Lin Wa. This is one of the most family-oriented and inexpensive cruises on Maui. The boat has a glass bottom, so you can see the fish and underwater life out of the bottom of the boat. The ship leaves from shore half a dozen times each day. Adults can ride for under $13 and kids can ride under $7. You can reach them at 661-3392.
• Club Lanai. This is a boat that is not a dinner cruise, but it runs day-long trips to Lanai. At 7:30 each morning, boats leave from the Lahaina Harbor. You can see the Maui coast and spend the day on the secluded island of Lanai. And you can do it all for under $100. For more information, you can call 871-1144.
• Pacific Whale Foundation. This is a cruise you can take to look for whales off the Maui coast. It’s a nonprofit group that was started 20 years ago to conserve and research whales in the Pacific Ocean. Cruises leave four times each day from the Maalaea Harbor. It costs under $40 to go on the trip.
