Snorkeling, stand-up paddle boarding or setting sail on a catamaran. You’ll find countless activities to spend the day in or on the water.

Whether you’re a seasoned swimmer or novice snorkeler, we recommend going out with a buddy or group for fun and safety. Families of all ages will appreciate a kayaking tour with Aqualani. Departing daily from Wailea Beach, an experienced guide will take you on a journey along the South Maui coast. Venture through the dazzling Pacific as you learn about Maui’s eco-system and local culture along the way.

Learning to surf is another must-do on Maui. You can find a variety of surf spots and lessons available for all ages and levels. Be sure to contact the Concierge to get you setup with a nearby surf school. Another option is stand-up paddle boarding, which uses a longer board and paddle to maneuver. You can rent paddle boards, as well as boogie boards and other water sport equipment right on Wailea Beach.


With miles of spectacular shorelines and beautiful beaches, Maui also offers several snorkeling spots around the island. Off the southwestern coast of Maui is the small, crescent shaped island known as Molokini. Its clear waters, colorful reefs and vibrant marine life make it a popular destination for snorkeling and diving. Molokini is only accessible by boat tour. A 25-minute drive from Wailea will take you to Maalea Harbor in nearby Kihei. Hop on a Trilogy catamaran and set sail to two snorkeling locations – the waters of Molokini and the shallows along Maui’s coastline for a chance to swim with the honu (Hawaiian green sea turtle).
