Maui beckons with its gorgeous beaches and scenic landscape, leaving no reason to wonder why it’s known as the Magic Isle. You’ve got dozens of options in Maui: go whale watching off the coast, drive across the 59 bridges and around 620 turns along the 45-mile Road to Hana, discover the culture and arts in Upcountry Maui, or enjoy numerous adventures under the sun! Save time for snorkeling at Molokini and Turtle Arches, where you’ll see that Maui’s beauty extends far below the water’s surface.

Discover the ultimate Kaanapali Beach hotel – Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa. Surrounded by 40 lush, beachfront acres, this breathtaking Maui hotel presents an astonishing array of delightful ways to spend your days and nights. Frolic in the water playground, pamper yourself at the spa, play championship golf and tennis, scuba, ride the waves, even spend an evening with the heavens. Feast on the beauty of nature, on the priceless art collection and on the cuisine in the delectable restaurants.

Your snorkel adventure begins at Ma’alaea Harbor, where you’ll board one of Pacific Whale Foundation’s high-tech, smooth-riding catamarans and be professionally fitted with snorkel gear. As you cruise to Molokini, the naturalists will offer a complimentary learn-to-snorkel class and educational talks about Hawaii’s reefs and fishes. (And if you travel in the winter, whale sightings are an added bonus!) You’ll moor at Molokini with plenty of time to explore this remarkable mid-ocean oasis. The wide swim steps and water slides make it fun and easy to get right in and explore the water! The next stop is Turtle Arches, a beautiful reef known for its underwater lava arches and abundance of green sea turtles, where you’ll be treated to a guided reef tour led by one of the naturalists.
