Maui is by far the most popular snorkeling island in Hawaii. The Wailea Beach Marriott Resort offers snorkeling activities at no additional cost.
Genuine adventurers should definitely take the opportunity to venture out on their own and explore Maui’s many world famous snorkeling beaches. The following ones should be on the list:
Honolua Bay: Located north of Kapalua, on the western coast of the island, it offers a great diversity of sea life. It’s designated as a Marine Life Conservation District.
Kapalua Bay: The best snorkeling can be experienced on the north side of the bay. The more experienced snorkelers can venture away from the calmer beach within the bay -- which tends to attract more family vacationers.
Maluaka Beach: The best snorkeling beach in Turtle Town Maui. Hidden behind the mountain of Haleakala, Maluaka Beach is protected from strong winds.
Ahihi Kinau Natural Reserve: A protected marine life oasis, the Ahihi Kinau Natural Reserve rests on a coast line that is mostly made up of lava rock intermixed with coral.
