What you'll do

This tour is for first timers and beginners. My snorkeling tour starts from the beach. This is NOT a boat snorkeling tour. I made it very easy even for the first timers and kids 8 years and older. I keep my group small, a minimum of 4 and maximum of 6 guests at a time. I take my time to teach, show, explain and entertain each guest in my group. You have a dedicated and experienced tour guide all the time from start to finish with you. I will spend 10-20 minutes on the beach teaching about swimming, snorkeling and gears. After that I will spend 20-30 minutes in the shallow water practicing swimming and snorkeling with life jackets or other floating devices. You will learn how to use snorkel, mask and fins. Once you get comfortable with water and snorkeling gear and can float freely in shallow water, we will practice going to the deeper water 10-20 feet for 5-10 minutes. The fun starts with the Yamaha Sea Scooters. Once you have learned how to breathe with a snorkel and float on the surface of water with a life jacket we will go in search of turtles and other marine life. I will take you to one of the best local coral reef homes to Hawaiian Sea Life; my favorite The Green Sea Turtles.  I have over 115 five star reviews for my experience and every guest told me this was the highlight of their Maui vacation. I am 100% sure you will love it.

Aloha! We are Yuri and Triston, two friends that love the ocean. If you are visiting Maui and have never gone snorkeling it is very challenging for the first timers. We teach swimming and snorkeling on Maui. With our knowledge and expertise, we can teach you snorkeling in the ocean and then take you on our sea scooter snorkeling adventure to see turtles, and other sea life. We know all the best spots that are breathtaking for snorkeling. After working for a few big companies as tour guides we were limited to our activities and entertainment. We quit our jobs and started working for ourselves. Now we share our love with our Airbnb guests.

My husband and I don’t know how to swim. This experience was tailor made for beginners like us. Yuri and Tristan took extra care in making us feel comfortable with floating and treading water before we went snorkeling. Their emphasis on safety and detailed instructions instilled a lot of confidence in us when it comes to water activities- something that we will forever carry with us. As for the snorkeling itself, it was out of the world. We saw many turtles sleeping and rising up to the surface to breathe, schools of fishes, jellyfish etc. I recommend just booking this experience- it’s simply worth it!!

It was a totally awesome experience. This was our first time snorkeling, the sea scooters were especially fun to play around with. Easy to operate and recommend for people who are not so good at swimming. They also offer pictures and videos an additional price.

Unforgettable experience, Yuri and Tristan will make you feel safe no matter your level, you will see turtles and other aquatic life and you'll immediately be hooked on snorkeling. I also recommend asking the tour guides to take your photos underwater if you'd like an amazing souvenir, we brought our own under-water camera but their quality is better and you won't need to worry about capturing footage, you can just enjoy the experience and focus on nothing else. Highly recommend!

My wife and I don't know how to swim at all. Tristan took his time to teach us the basics and made us feel really comfortable going out in deeper waters. It was an amazing experience altogether. Highlight of the trip.

An amazing experience and a must do if you are in Maui. Yuri and Tristan made us feel real comfortable. My girlfriend doesn’t know how to swim and was a little scared, but Yuri and Tristan went the extra steps to make sure that she was comfortable and at the end of it she was just zooming away without any help or life jacket while enjoying the amazing experience
