What you'll do

Aloha! We made something very fun and interesting for you, your family and friends. Snorkeling for first time! We take our time to teach, show, explain and entertain each guest in the group. You have a dedicated and experienced tour guide all the time from start to finish with you. We will spend 10-30 minutes on the beach in shallow water where you can stand teaching about swimming, snorkeling with mask and fins. We will practice with life jackets and sea scooter. You will learn how to use the snorkel, mask and fins. This makes you to get comfortable in the water with snorkeling gear and can float freely in water. 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. We will take you to one of the best local coral reef homes to Hawaiian Sea Life; my favorite The Green Sea Turtles.  We 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 too.

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.

Triston and the team were amazing. The sea scooter allowed us to cover so much ocean area for snorkeling. The wailea beach were perfect conditions for snorkeling. If you are uncomfortable in deep water you can always get on the paddle boat and see the ocean floor from there. We were able to see turtles, fishes and octopus. One of the instructor caught the octopus and we were able to pet it as well.highly recommend this experience.

Great experience! I do not know how to swim but the team was able to cater to my needs so I could have the best experience. They are very patient and accommodating. Me and my husband are super happy with the experience and will definitely recommend it to everyone.

We went out with Triston and team. They are awesome. Very warm and friendly. Just the right kind of body language for non swimmers and anxious ppl like me about going into the sea. Am thankful for the whole thing. It gave me confidence to snorkel again. Only downside for my experience is, that we couldn’t spot a lot of sea creatures but it is Mother Nature , so can’t exactly complain. I will definitely go with this team to a different location next time.

I HIGHLY recommend this tour!! Tristan and Yuri did an amazing job explaining how to snorkel and what to expect out on the reef. We had the amazing opportunity to see a Hawaiian monk seal! I will definitely be booking this next time I come to Maui!

I booked this for my 9 yr old son and husband, and they had such an awesome experience. It was my son's first time on the island, and after a week being there, he said this was his favorite thing he did on the whole trip. I also opted for the video of their experience from Juca, and that is definitely a MUST. Such a beautifully done, personalized video that we will have forever... my son got emotional seeing the video for the first time last night and I think this whole experience solidified his love for the ocean + Maui. Apart from this being super magical for my boys, all 3 guides were super friendly and made everyone feel very safe and well looked-after. Tristan had life vests for people that don't swim or don't feel totally confident in the water for the whole time. He also had a huge 15 ft paddle board when people needed a break from the water. Location-wise, it was perfect - right on gorgeous Wailea Beach - so we did this experience in the morning, went and had a late breakfast and headed over to Big Beach for a few - a perfect Maui day!
