THE BEST CREW ON MAUI
We are a locally owned and operated business consisting of a small team of full-time Hawaii residents dedicated to going above and beyond at every opportunity. We look forward to sharing our local knowledge about the area, Hawaiian history, and marine life and do our best to keep up to date with current research.
Our Captains all maintain United States Coast Guard licenses and certifications. Our entire team is also 100% First Aid & CPR Certified and we provide you with an in-water guide/naturalist. This opportunity allows us to give you personalized instruction in the water while being able to share what we know and answer your questions.
Choosing Makai Adventures means choosing to support local small businesses. We pass this along by partnering with Take Home Maui, a locally owned and operated catering company using local produce and Raw Love Sunscreen, a locally owned company producing all natural, reef safe sunscreen for use while onboard.
We welcome you onboard as guests and next time as our friends!
THE BEST GEAR ON MAUI
When it comes to snorkel gear, there is no doubt that we raised the standard. We wanted to provide our guests with the same gear that we like to use, so we have invested in new,
Cressi Brand high quality silicone gear.
Frameless masks, dry snorkels, adjustable fins, and optional floatation belts are provided for each guest. Although you are more than welcome to bring your own gear, we are always happy to suit you up with a set if you want to try something new!
After each trip, you will find us sanitizing all gear to Cressi specifications. Each mask, snorkel, and fin set gets individually handwashed to remove any trace of bacteria and old sunscreen. We also always stock replacement parts to keep our gear working at its best and you safe in the water.
