Snorkeling in Maui

During our weekend in Maui we went on a full morning snorkeling trip with Boss Frog’s aboard the Quicksilver. The trip snorkel gear, breakfast, a BBQ lunch, ice cold drinks, two snorkel sites, a great boat ride and $1 drinks after the snorkeling was finished. All that for about $40/person including tax and boat fees.

Kaho╩╗olawe, an uninhabited Hawaiian Island. This island was used by the navy for military training. During the 90’s the island was turned back over to the State of Hawai’i and since then there has been an extensive cleanup of unexploded ordinances on and around the island.

We had a great time snorkeling around Maui and can’t wait to do it again in December. There are many different companies that you can go snorkeling with so make sure you shop around for the best deal for you!
