Maui Things to Do: 486 reviews and 992 photos

I love to snorkel. No two ways about it. On Maui you can snorkel form the beach or take a tour like the Trilogy tours that go out of both Maakeena and Lahaina.

I have my own prescription mask because I go snorkeling enough to justify the cost. I also own a dry snorkel which has a little valve at the top that shuts off if a wave comes over the top of you or when you dive; this way you don't get a mouthful of seawater. You do not have to own your own equipment you can rent it by the day or the week and tours such as Trilogy provide gear included in the price of the tour.

I know it's tempting to feed the fish but due to ecolgical imbalances try to refrain from doing so. The fish stop hunting for food and then they starve to death.

You can buy an underwater camera for very little money and you will have so much fun taking pictures you won't think about feeding the fish.

Maui Dive Shops or Snorkel Bob's are good places to rent equipment.
