It is Really Hard To Pick a Favorite Spot
The waters surrounding Maui are crystal clear and usually glassy calm. The reefs below are breathtaking and home to colors that are beyond imagination. The volcanic formations below also allow for a kind of visual drama found nowhere else on earth. It is really hard to pick a favorite spot but one of ours is just along the coast of the neighbor island of Lana’i. As we approach this spot it appears to be an impossible snorkeling spot because we are in nearly 60 feet of water. There is a secret pinnacle here that reaches from the sea floor to just mere feet below the surface. You can snorkel right over the top or venture down along the sides. As you venture down the sides of the pinnacle you will see how the reef inhabitants change with the decrease in sunlight. As if this weren’t amazing enough, listen close and you will probably hear the clicks and whistles of the dolphins that greet us upon our arrival to magical Lanai.
A snorkeling trip is also a great way to see the Hawaiian green sea turtles from a different perspective. While it is never alright to touch a sea turtle you can get pretty close. Lana'i is a favorite spot for dolphins and turtles. Join us this Fall when snorkeling is a magical way to spend the day. This particular time of year is special because there are a few humpbacks that have arrived early. There are no where near enough whales for anyone to offer an exclusive whale watching tour but we travel right through some of the best areas. Your best bet for seeing one of these gentle giants is to hop on one of our snorkeling tours! Stop by www.hawaiioceanrafting.com and book directly. Hop on a tour and find your new favorite spot!
