Ka‘anapali is ideally located for enjoying the many ocean adventures we offer including sailing, snorkeling, and whale watching. And it is the only location where we actually pick up and drop off guests directly from the beach. Some of the best Maui snorkel sites are only a few miles away and our crew will choose the best destination for that day. Our experienced and dedicated crew are masters of teaching first-time snorkelers, and if you're an old pro and want an underwater experience that goes beyond snorkeling, you may want to try SNUBA, one of our most popular upgrades.

Just like our Discover Molokini trip, we provide all the snorkeling equipment and instruction, as well as wetsuit tops for everyone on board. We don't skimp on meals offering a delicious breakfast, BBQ chicken lunch, soda and snacks, adult beverages, and that personalized service you've come to expect. With those famous Maui tradewinds just a few hundred yards off shore, our crew wastes no time in hoisting sail and getting into some serious sailing! Even if you are not staying on or near Ka‘anapali beach, our later morning departure gives you plenty of time to make the drive from any part of the island.

Included with Tour:
- Snorkeling equipment and an optional SNUBA upgrade
- For safety purposes, we require our passengers to wear a type of flotation while snorkeling. Trilogy offers two comfortable options for guests to choose from.

"“Best trip you will ever take” My family and I have sailed with trilogy 5 times! We always do the discover Kaanapali snorkel trip to honolua bay. This last trip we spotted white tip reef sharks! The staff is 75% of what makes the trip so enjoyable. The food is first rate and there is plenty of it! Take it from this repeat will not be disappointed!!" - Sheree D


"“Simply Awesome!” I spent hours researching which trip we should take since all had awesome reviews, but in the end figured everything is going to be great - and it really was. We went on the 'Kaanapali Snorkel' tour and it was fantastic!" - GeneM
