$115.00 BOOK NOW
Blue Water Rafting is a journey to the remote parts of Maui where no other charters venture. With their 22′ Avon raft, Blue Water Rafting powers you to the sea caves on the Kanio Coast. This 4-hour adventure provides you with 2 Maui Snorkel spots and both are outstanding. This remote snorkeling location is unspoiled teeming with marine life, turtles , and dolphins. The entire journey along the Kanaio Coast of Maui is a National Marine Reserve. The dolphins are fun to watch and the sea caves are so cool.
This snorkeling tour off Maui with Blue Water Rafting explores the Kanio Coast. The Kanio Coast is rugged, remote and unspoiled. Blue Water Rafting was the first Rafting Trip to begin Maui snorkel tours to the southern tip of Maui where the last volcanic eruption from Haleakala spilled into the sea.
The regions hold many secrets from lava arches to caves that will make this day special. Snorkeling in the bay where the dolphins hang out most of the time is a rare gift when snorkeling on Maui. Cherish it, marvel at it and remember this day forever! The lava caves are cool because they are deep, and Blue Water Rafting enters the caves. Oh Yeah! No other snorkel tour on Maui enters caves. The lava arches will remind you of just how intriguing Maui really is. Remotely located the caves and arches are inaccessible by land. They are today as they were form by Haleakala.
There is something about dolphins that lure people to where ever they are. Perhaps it’s their playful moods, their smile or laughing eyes that make them so popular among visitors. They are abundant along the Kanio Coast. They play away from human eyes in their own playground in the remote bays that line the rugged coast of Kanio.
Who knows, maybe a dolphin will swim up to you and smile. That would be something to remember your Maui vacation by…
Drift snorkeling is not a new concept, but one that isn’t practiced very much on Maui. The reefs are so colorful and teeming with thousands of different species of fish that the only way to see, just a small portion of it is by drift snorkeling. Drift snorkeling is when the boat tosses out a long rope and the snorkeler grabs the rope, the boat gently moves forward pulling you along. As the boat moves over the reef, so do you. Personally, I find this outstanding. Snorkeling can wear you out.
Blue Water Rafting has been plying the Kanio Coast since 1985. They are a family owned and operated small business. Their devotion to sharing Maui with every visitor is legendary. During your adventure the crew will share the history, legends and myths of the area. This is so cool because the southern coast of Maui is the least visited area on the island. It stands to reason that the reefs are more alive with marine life than other snorkel sites on Maui like Molokini. Rafting trips are not for everyone. The boat move through the water quickly, and it can be a bit bumpy depending on the ocean currents. Rafts are light on shade and have no restrooms aboard, but they are fun.
One of the things that makes rafting in Maui unique is the time it takes them to get to the snorkel site. By having the ability to race through the water at a higher speed than the larger catamarans, you get more time snorkeling and less time looking at the coast slowly go by. It’s not a road trip, it’s a snorkel trip on Maui that you will never, ever forget.

Way better than being on a crowded boat with a bunch of people, Blue Water Rafting does a great job of giving you a genuine experience in a smaller boat which allows you go get much closer to the once-flowing lava rock views and see parts of Maui you would not get to see otherwise. Our whole boat was maybe a dozen people total. Snorkeling spots were great and never crowded with plenty of time to explore the beautiful reefs in peace. Larry and Stephanie were very knowledgeable and down-to-earth guides, I felt like I was being taken out by local friends rather than the typical tour guide scenario, plus they dig good tunes. Much aloha. Will recommend, will do again.
Tim and Spencer were ...wait for it...Leg & (Legendary) We had a great day and we will do this excursion every time we come to Maui! Tim has lots of great insight to the geography, wild life and history of the area. Put this at the top of your list.
The tour we took was the highlight of our entire trip in Maui. The tour guides John and Josh were so friendly and knowledgeable. The fact that they pulled over to pick up debris in the ocean was incredible. They catered the tour to our group and gave us an absolute amazing experience. We are so glad we chose to do this tour as our trip would not have been the same. The cookies were also delicious!
Captain Tim, Stephanie and Joe provided an amazing experience just as good as it was 10 years ago! Whale watching, snorkeling and stress free boating along the beautiful Maui coast. This is a must tour if you are in Maui, there's nothing like seeing Maui from the water and it's even better in small groups.
Excellent time! Captain Jonathon delivered all we could have asked for we saw school of dolphins! , explained all about what we were seeing along the coastline, and brought us to an area where we saw a bunch of sea turtles, it was our lucky day because as he explained it doesn’t always turn out that way. But we are convinced it would have never happened without him being in control of the boat! Thanks again captain Jonathan! Make sure sure you ask for him.
