Come aboard our luxury sailing catamaran, Ocean Spirit, and cruise the beautiful Kaʻanapali coastline to the breathtaking waters of Honolua Bay.
Honolua Bay is protected as a marine conservation area and is one of Maui’s most scenic snorkel spots. Snorkel at two secluded spots popular with sea turtles, colorful fish, and vibrant coral. Wild dolphin sightings are also common, as are humpback whales from December to April. Continental breakfast is included and a delicious BBQ lunch is prepared onboard.

Normally, we accept cancellations 48 hours prior to the scheduled date of your trip. Due to the current health crisis, we will consider late cancellations related to the COVID-19 pandemic, i.e. quarantine, isolation or flu-like symptoms. As we do this in good faith, we deeply appreciate the earliest cancellation notice possible.
Pacific Whale Foundation advocates for the use of protective clothing and reef-safe sunscreen to help protect fragile coral reefs and to promote a healthy ocean environment. We support the statewide ban on sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate and, beginning November 2019, we are moving from encouragement to enforcement and instituting our own ban onboard PWF vessels of sunscreens containing: oxybenzone, octinoxate, avobenzone, avobenzine, homosalate, octisalate, octocrylene, and ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate in order to alleviate any additional stress on coral reefs. When buying sunscreen, it is important to read the ingredient list, as the term “reef safe” is not regulated and can be used as a marketing device. Choose sunscreen that is non-nano zinc oxide based, like those found in our Ocean Store. Mahalo for helping us protect the ocean.
