EXCLUSIVE SAILING

Specializing in exclusive private sailing adventures for up to 6 people. Join us for a few hours, a full day or extended sunset! Call for details, pricing, and to create a custom reservation.

On August 8, Lahaina experienced a devastating wildfire. Our Lahaina Harbor was destroyed along with our beloved Kainalu, the boat that started us off and set us apart from the big boats and the small rafts. We are in the process of receiving a replacement vessel and we hope to begin offering whale watching tours in 2024. We are committed to providing the same great customer service, so we encourage you to give us a call if you would like us to make recommendations or even help you reserve a similar tour with another company.
Our private charter sailboat, Kainani Sails, is currently offering sailing, snorkeling, and sunset tours.
Give us a call for more details: 808-495-1001.

SNORKEL WITH TURTLES

This afternoon tour offers you the GUARENTEED experience to swim with sea turtles mid-day. This bucket list charter allows you to snorkel the West coast of Maui while only occupying a few hours of your day! Come swim alongside the Hawaiian green sea turtle, enjoy scenic views and Maui's infamous blue water. 

4 HOUR LANAI SNORKEL

These are the fish you won't want to miss!

6 HOUR LANAI SNORKEL
& DOLPHIN ADVENTURE

Explore the secluded coastline of Lana'i on this 6-hour day trip. Our snorkeling tours include dolphins who show up to play almost every time. You can swim with sea turtles, tropical fish and explore coral gardens in crystal clear waters.  Watch the island's resident pod of dolphins ride the bow wave and their acrobatic tricks while enjoying lunch anchored in a remote cove surrounded by sea cliffs, offshore islets, blowholes and sea caves!

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 Pizza Paradiso, a locally owned and operated catering company.

 

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 and Sea Sports 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 and Sea Sport 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.
