We booked Maui Boat Trips for a snorkel tour. They're docked at Slip 68 at Maalaea Harbor. You'll want to arrive a little early to find parking ($3 pay to park) and check in/sign waiver. There was around 25 people on the boat plus the...More

When we went in the tour it did both stops. The crew was amazing and was looking out for turtles for us at turtle town. It was an awesome day. The boat is older but well maintained and the crew was fun.
