Snorkeling at Honolua Bay



honolua bayIt’s easy to see why snorkeling in Maui is some of the best snorkeling in the world. Each year thousands of visitors travel to Maui to experience one of Maui’s fantastic snorkeling tours. Maui’s shallow reefs provide an excellent place to see the countless variety of fish and sea life that inhabit the Maui coastline. Like finding a hidden treasure, first time snorkelers take home a truly special experience from their Maui vacation with memories that last a lifetime.

At Honolua Bay, in the upper west of Maui, you’re treated to a protected large bay with beautiful coral reef and plenty of sea life.  The summertime is usually the best time to go because winter swells can wrap in and murk up the water as well as make it unsafe to snorkel.

    Where is the access to this bay? I think I have seen it FAR below the road and always wondered how to get to it?

      The easiest way is by boat, but you can park at the apex of the bay, and if you have adequate permissions to cross the land, you can walk through the jungle to the water.
