Make A Trip Special With A Snorkeling Tour In Maui

Updated on March 17, 2012


Hawaii is famous for the extraordinary natural beauty of its islands. Its gorgeous plants and beaches are much of the reason that these islands are such a popular place for people who want to go on a vacation as an escape from the stress and dullness of their ordinary lives. One way to experience even more of the beauty of the islands and to make a trip truly special is to sign up for a Maui snorkeling tour.

The companies that offer snorkeling tours in Maui are able to accommodate people with a wide range of abilities. They know that many people who visit the island come from places where there is little opportunity to participate in this type of activity. This is why they keep plenty of gear on hand for a variety of levels and have a great deal of experience in instructing people on the proper use of it. They even offer snorkeling floatation devices and view port boogie boards for people who would prefer to use those options. This makes it much easier for families and groups with mixed abilities to be able to go together and enjoy the extraordinary beauty of the island's coral reefs.

Those who choose to go on a Maui snorkel tour can have the opportunity to see, in person, an actual underwater volcano. It is known as the Molokini Crater, and it is the most popular underwater destination around the island of Maui. the crescent portion of the crater that rises above the water creates an area that is very well sheltered against the ordinary currents and waves of the ocean. This protects the extraordinary reefs that have formed within the crater, and also makes it a much easier place to snorkel and enjoy the beauty of the ocean.

People who travel to Maui and only enjoy the portions of it that are on land are depriving themselves of the chance to truly experience all that the island has to offer. There are companies who offer snorkeling tours maui that can make it easy for anyone from beginners to those with experience to have the opportunity to enjoy the gorgeous coral reefs around the island.

      Well that is good to know! Of course, with my luck I would be one of the "2 or 3". LOL! But I am a Pisces so maybe they won't attack a fellow fish! Thanks for the feedback, and I hope to come out your way soon. Visiting the islands is definitely on the "Bucket List".

      Haha sounds like you are set then :) Shark attacks near Molokini are very rare and Hawaii in general. Maybe two or three a year of all the islands.

      Well, my family says I swim like a fish...like I was born in the water LOL! Thank you for the tip on AM vs afternoon waters. Also, what about sharks? Are they a problem in your area, or are they part of the attraction? I know when I visited Bermuda they said most sharks wouldn't breech the coral reef surrounding the island. Is this true of the Hawaiian islands as well or no?

      I'd say if you can swim you can snorkel :) It's very easy to pick up. It may be easier to learn in the AM time as the waters are calmer in the morning versus afternoon.

      Mahalo for the vote.

      I've always wanted to visit the islands, and of course learn to snorkel! How long does it take to get the basics of snorkeling down? Voted you up and interesting :^)
