Magic Afternoon Adventure Adventure
Afternoon fun in the sun at a great price! This snorkel excursion is a lighter and shorter version of our Classic Morning Snorkel Trip. Because of the later start-time, it is a great option if you like to sleep-in or you want to add something to your morning Maui itinerary. Typically, due to the prevailing, afternoon Maui trade winds, this trip snorkels at Coral Gardens unless weather permits us to reach Molokini. Coral Gardens is also one of Maui's premier snorkeling destinations (Coastal Living Magazine rates it as one of the World’s Top Ten Snorkel Sites) and offers a treasure of underwater sights, abounding with amazing marine-life.
What's Included In Your Trip
Your Afternoon Coral Gardens Snorkel Trip includes a complimentary open-bar of beer, wine, sodas, juices and filtered water plus we provide you with all your snorkel gear and expert instruction. For those who like less swimming and more floating, we have flotation devices of almost every kind that make it effortless to enjoy the ocean! We're equipped with creature comforts like onboard restroom and fresh-water shower. For some great fun, you can MAKE A SPLASH sliding down our Water Slide into the warm, blue waters of the Pacific Ocean!
Add Our Yummy BBQ Lunch to Your Afternoon Trip!
One of our talented crew grills up (right on board) your choice of hamburgers, marinated chicken breasts, hot dogs or veggie burgers (for those who prefer not to eat meat) complete with all the trimmings and tasty Maui-Brand potato chips! Our guests continue to tell us that our burgers were the BEST BURGERS of their entire vacation! So we have to warn you, in advance, after you've enjoyed some serious snorkeling fun and get back onboard the boat, and then smell that delicious aroma coming off the sizzling BBQ grill... YOU'LL BE HUNGRY!
Because the Afternoon tour starts later in the day, our hot-off-the-grill BBQ Lunch is offered as an optional add-on for $8 per person. We generally start serving the BBQ Lunch around 2pm, which can be a little late for some who had an early breakfast or it might be a little too early for those who have luau plans later. That’s why we leave it up to you!

These items are not included as standard trip features, but are well-worth adding them to your Maui Magic snorkel trip. The most popular add-on is our SNUBA experience. SNUBA is similar to SCUBA, but does not require wearing tanks, or heavy gear. It also does not require any certification. SNUBA is really easy, extremely safe and loads of fun. Even kids can do it! (More about SNUBA) We also have underwater cameras for purchase too.

Pack for your snorkel excursion like you would for a day at the beach.

- Perhaps Some Extra Cash (should you want to rent a wetsuit or purchase an underwater camera, a souvenir t-shirt or if you feel like tipping your crew).

Once we welcome you onboard, we treat you like our ohana (family). The Maui Magic is all about service and personal attention. Unlike boats that take over 100 passengers, the Magic only takes an average of 27 people per day. This means we are able to provide you, and everyone in your party, with more INDIVIDUALIZED ATTENTION – both in and out of the water. And when it comes to first-time snorkelers, this personal attention makes a huge difference! We pride ourselves on our success of getting some of our more “timid” passengers into the water and snorkeling like pros. This is also why we are the perfect boat for ALL LEVELS OF SNORKELERS!
People Come Back for More
Year-after-year many of our ohana return to join us again for a MAGICAL ADVENTURE SNORKEL. Some folks have even done the trip multiple times in one vacation, which is a testament to the quality and unique experience that we consistently provide.
Adventure Snorkel & Lots of Thrills
This is a snorkel trip decidedly-designed for thrill-seekers and adventurers. We don’t encourage children under age 5 and, if you happen to be sun-sensitive, there isn’t a lot of shade onboard. True to any ocean adventure, you have to be game to get a little wet (and you usually will). So, if you're ready for adventure and want to explore the hidden-side of Maui that only a lucky few will ever see – THE MAUI MAGIC IS THE BOAT FOR YOU!
