Our Discover Ka’anapali tour starts with a direct board from the golden sands of Ka’anapali Beach. Your adventure continues with a hot breakfast of Mom Coon’s cinnamon rolls as we sail to our first snorkeling destination, typically Honolua Bay. Our NEW 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 safe and No Ka Oi!
Your tour starts with a continental breakfast of Mom Coon’s 4th generation cinnamon rolls and chilled tropical fruit cup, complimented with Kona coffee, hot tea, hot cocoa, POG or pineapple juice.
For lunch*, enjoy our savory shoyu chicken, spring mix salad with Mom Coon’s famous dressing, rice pilaf and soft Hawaiian sweet rolls. Our food is always served–we don’t do buffet lines, paper plates, or plastic silverware aboard our first-class boats!
After lunch, we’ll raise the sails and head back to the beach! For guests 21+ (with ID), two adult premium beverages are included on the return sail, as well as sodas, juice, and filtered water.
* For Vegetarian meal requests, please contact customer service upon booking your tour.
The bays of Honoapi’ilani 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”!
*Most common in the Winter months, a North swell can cause large surf at Honolua and Slaughterhouse. On “big surf” days our Captain’s will choose the best and safest snorkeling site for the group; 2 snorkel locations are not guaranteed on days with high surf
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). SNUBA is a safe and exciting way to explore Maui’s underwater ecosystem, allowing you to breathe underwater through a mouthpiece and an air hose that is connected to a tank sitting in a raft on the surface. Connected through a light harness, you can then dive down up to 20 feet and enjoy up-close-and-personal views of our amazing reef and marine life!

Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for availability of SNUBA on our Discover Molokini and Discover Lanai’i tours.**
