Discover Kaanapali

Snorkel the protected bays of West Maui, with convenient loading off Ka’anapali Beach.

This snorkeling trip was AMAZING!!! The crew REALLY made it even that much better. We saw a pod of dolphins on the way out! The cinnamon rolls were delicious! And there were not very many people on the boat, where I've heard other companies "pile" people on. Definitely 2 thumbs up, if not more!
This 1/2 tour features 2 great snorkel spots and really great food- nothing tops the food & hospitality on this trip. I mean cinnamon rolls immediately upon departure?! And it continues to be amazing. Trilogy is among the more environmentally friendly companies; they make use of reusable dinnerware & provide excellent info on how to respect and protect the reefs.

Our Discover Ka’anapali tour starts with a direct board from the golden sands of Ka’anapali Beach. Your adventure continues with Mom Coon's pipin' hot cinnamon rolls as we sail to our first snorkeling destination: typically Honolua Bay.  Our luxury sailing catamaran is comfortable and roomy, with fresh water showers, cushioned seating, and large bathrooms. This 5-hr excursion is a family favorite! Includes 2 snorkel sites, sailing, and the friendliest Captain and Crew who will  keep the food and drinks flowing, and ensure your day with Trilogy is No Ka Oi!

* For Vegan, Gluten Free, or Dairy Free meal requests, please contact customer service upon booking your tour.


The bays of Honoapiilani offer some of the best snorkeling on Maui! Our Captain will choose the preferred snorkeling destination for that day, (most often Honolua Bay), which allows our guests to truly enjoy the most ideal conditions & visibility that West Maui has to offer. You might find yourself swimming among the fish and honu (Hawaiian sea turtle) in the coves of Honolua, enjoying the crystal clear waters at Cliff House, or even snorkeling the expansive Olowalu reef - Maui's "mother reef"!

For an up close & personal look at Maui's marine wildlife, we also offer an optional SNUBA upgrade for any guest 8yrs and older (space is limited).
