$125.00 BOOK NOW
Discover Molokini Crater with Paragon Sailing Charters. With over 250 species of marine life calling Molokini home, Molokini has long been considered the best snorkeling site on Maui. There is an abundance of tropical fish, vibrant coral reefs abundant with life, and perfectly calm and protected water to snorkel in. Paragon Sailing stays at Molokini longer than any other charter boat and does not include a second snorkel site during the morning.
The Paragon II is a performance sailing catamaran and as the fastest charter sailboat in Maui it boasts speeds over 14 knots. On the way, back from Molokini, Paragon will set the sails for a performance sail back to Maalaea Harbor. For avid sailors, Paragon would be the charter of choice as they are the only Maui snorkeling tour that sails after a day of snorkeling at Molokini. The sail back is peaceful, relaxing and provides a fresh perspective to the rest of the day.
As the boat nears the harbor the sails come down and Paragon ins its slow approach into the harbor. Before entering Maalaea Harbor, they stop to watch the green sea turtles floating along the harbor entrance. There are about 20 at any given time. Nice way to conclude a day of snorkeling on Maui. Paragon Sailing has set itself above the competition with these standards, raising the bar to lofty expectations from their guests. And they have delivered. So, join us today for superior experience aboard Paragon.
The perfect wind conditions on the return will thrill you with a sailing adventure that is a one of a kind experience. Sailing buffs will appreciate the raw power of this beautiful catamaran.

Molokini as a snorkel destination is at the discretion of the captain of Paragon Sailing. The captain may select another snorkel site during inclement weather.
If you book with company, just realize that they may cancel at the last minute.
At 5:45 P.M. the evening before our morning snorkel, tour operator called and said trip was canceled because they didn't have enough customers signed up. Better customer service would be: 1) cancel the trip at least 24 hours in advance so I have a chance to rebook with a different boat; 2) make an effort to provide other options at the same day/time, even if that involves referral to a competing company, or 3) run the tour even if the endeavor is not "profitable" for the company.
Great trip, super friendly staff. They were awesome with our 6 year old daughter. Trip to Lanai is a great way to spend the day!
We joined Sail Maui for the sailing trip to Lanai for snorkeling and beach time on Christmas day. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough wind to actually sail, but that did not diminish our good time at all. The crew was professional and very welcoming. Provided picnic lunches were excellent. I can't think of a single negative from our time on board the Paragon.
We saw whales in the first few minutes after leaving the harbor - lucky us! Unlike all of the other sailboats on the water at the time, we were the only boat actually sailing. Also, there were 8 guests on our boat, while the others that we saw were jam packed. Great experience. Will be back!
Truth be told, I am always happy on the water but this trip was perfect and beyond. We actually sailed most of the way across the channel. Food, drinks, everything was great. The snorkeling was better than any other site around Maui. I found a hanu and glided above all the way across the bay.
