A long time supporter of marine research and conservation in the Aloha State, the Hawaii Ocean Project hosts a range of thrilling tour options aboard the Lahaina Cruise Company Fleet, departing daily from West Maui’s Lahaina Harbor.
If you’re excited about the opportunity to see Maui’s natural beauty from the ocean, be sure to book your spot on one of the following luxury boats…
Maui’s Top Cruising Fleet
Maui’s largest and most stable yacht, the Maui Princess is 120′ of pure opulence. Holding a maximum of 149 passengers, guests aboard the Maui Princess have the opportunity to experience a special Maui Sunset & Dinner Tour, including live music, an island-inspired meal, cocktails, dancing and views of Maui’s sensational coastline.
Departing daily from Lahaina Harbor, the Maui Princess was built with two spacious decks, including an air-conditioned main cabin and lovely open-air upper deck, perfect for viewing the sky’s changing colors and in winter months, even humpback whales!
Guests can also visit the snack lounge and cocktail bar, and enjoy a smooth ride with the help of the yacht’s Naiad gyroscopically controlled stabilizing system.
Kaulana of Maui
For travelers looking for a more remote experience in the Hawaiian Islands, a snorkeling tour of Lanai offers a unique, uncrowded look at the quieter side of paradise. To get there, we recommend jumping aboard the Kaulana, a 70′ double decker catamaran that’s built perfectly for cruising the short distance across the shallow ‘Au’au Channel between Maui and Lanai.
Built for stability and speed, the Kaulana can hold up to 147 passengers and offers plenty of room to spread out, whether you want to relax in the shade on the lower deck or enjoy the sunshine and views atop the upper deck. After enjoying a continental breakfast, you’ll be treated to two different snorkeling locations around The Pineapple Isle. Best of all, there’s a water slide for kids and adults alike! Finally, guests will be served a BBQ lunch and complimentary cocktail of their choice before making their way back to Lahaina Harbor.
The most compact option of the impressive fleet, the Lahaina Princess is a 65′ adventure yacht, also built with both an upper and lower deck for comfort and ease. With a maximum capacity of 99 people, guests are welcome to enjoy the smooth ride to Molokini Crater in the comfort of the shaded lower deck, or alternately, head upstairs to enjoy the sunshine and views of Haleakala Volcano and Molokini Crater in the open air.
Once at Molokini Crater, one of Hawaii’s most popular snorkeling spots, guests are able to easily get in and out of the water using the convenient swim-up platform, making this Molokini Snorkeling Tour perfect for all ages. Enjoy the high visibility and plentiful marine life at this renowned spot, as well as another nearby snorkeling location upon the captain’s preference! Lunch, equipment, instruction and flotation devices are provided for ultimate comfort and safety, and the staff is always eager to show you the best of Maui’s ocean life.
Whatever you do on in paradise, be sure to set time aside to enjoy the views, adventure and experience aboard Maui’s top cruising fleet!
