    Snorkeling at Turtle Cove

    by seamandrew Updated Jun 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Snorkeling at Turtle Cove is excellent if you want to encounter green sea turtles in high numbers. The Pacific Whale Foundation's ship took us here and we found 3 turtles right by ship and never ventured out to find more. The 3 we found were so entertaining.

    Please remember that this is an endangered species and you should respect their space. You can follow them but do not chase the turtles. Also, hanging on to a turtle is a big no-no.

    Equipment: Goggles, Snorkel, Flippers, and bathing suit. I recommend you buy your own like we did.

    Snorkeling at Molokini Crater

    by seamandrew Updated Jun 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Maui's diverse marine life provides for some of the best snorkeling in the world. Molokini Crater (see my tip on it) is one of those sites. There are several companies that will take you to Molokini Crater and provide you with all the equipment you need. They even provide food. We went to Molokini with the Pacific Whale Foundation vessel. They provided us with intuitive information and snacks. Both very important! Enjoy the snorkeling here and look for the Monk Seal (see travelogue on whale whatching and snorkeling in Maui).

    When you get to Molokini, head to the left of the crater. Keep an eye out for the monk seal. Just keep your distance. Wild animals can be aggressive.

    Equipment: Goggles, flippers, snorkel, and bathing suit. I recommend you buy your own like we did.

    Snorkeling at Black Rock

    by seamandrew Written Jun 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Black Rock has an abundant amount of sea life. My wife and I encountered all types of fish from Lagoon and Picasso Triggers, to Green Sea Turtles and a spotted Eagle nose ray. Sadly we ran out of film just after the Green Sea turtles here. At that moment, the Spotted Eagle Nose Ray swam past and I cursed myself for not buying two underwater cameras!

    None the less, we had an excellent time and you will certainly enjoy your snorkeling experience at the Black Rock.

    Equipment: Snorkel, Goggles, Flippers, and bathing suit. I recommend you buy your own like we did.

    Pipiwai Trail: great place to Hike in Maui

    by seamandrew Updated May 26, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Pipiwai Trail offers one of the best places to hike in Maui. The trail starts by the shore at the 'Ohe'o gulch (AKA 7 sacred pools). It's then up, up, and away to the Waimoku falls. Take your time going up as it's definitely exhausting for those who are not in the right physical shape. However, if you are, you can make it up to the top in 1.5-2 hours each way without breaking a sweat and still stopping at most of the spots along the way. The roundtrip can be done in 2.5 hours but you would probably miss everything along the way. Be sure to look at my travelogue and must see activities for tips on what's on the trail.

    Equipment: Dress cool and bring some water along. While the water along the way up seems drinkable, you should never brave it!

    Snorkeling Molokini Crater

    by rudocp Written Feb 25, 2003

    Took a power boat from Maalea to Molikini Crater to go snorkeling. On the way there we saw a lot of whales flapping their tales and breaching. We even saw two males chasing a female through the water.

    Kite Surfers

    by rudocp Written Feb 25, 2003

    Depending on which way the wind is blowing and where the waves are the best you might get a chance to see these awesome kite surfers. These guys were going 10-20 feet in the air when they hit the wind and the wave just right.

    The Courses of Wailea

    by AP72 Updated Jan 20, 2005

    The Wailea courses are gorgeous. You have three to choose from or you can buy a Triple Play Pass(highly recommended) and get to play three times at a discounted rate.
