Cruise Ship Clients
NCL Pride of America cruise ship passengers who come into Kahului are able to do the 5 hour premier snorkel on their second day in port, but a drive of an hour is required. We recommend that you do a Molokini snorkel tour instead as Maalaea Harbor is much closer to your ship.
Lahaina cruise ship passengers can do either Teralani snorkel and a short cab ride of 10 minutes is required.
Teralani Sunset Sails

Both boats depart from Kaanapali Beach; guests take off their shoes and walk through the sand. You will likely get your feet wet (and maybe your ankels and occassionally your knees) when you board the vessel

Cruise Ship Clients
NCL Pride of America cruise ship passengers who come into Kahului are able to do Teralani sunset cruises but it does require a rental car as the drive to Lahaina takes a little under an hour. For rental cars with cruise ship shuttle pick-up see our rental car page.
Lahaina cruise ship passengers can do this tour on their first day in port with a short cab ride to Kaanapali as long as your tenders are running until 8pm.
Teralani II and III are both beautiful sailboats that are meticulously maintained and offer a quality premium snorkeling experience on Maui's west side. Capacity on these boats is 49, which is less than half of the people you'll find on most of the Molokini snorkel tours. People also appreciate the mid-morning check-in times ... this is a good choice for people who don't want to get up at 6am every day on their vacation. In the wintertime Honolua Bay isn't available as a snorkel destination ... winter swells make Honolua Bay a surfer's paradise but those waves make snorkeling impossible. The water becomes murky and you can't see a thing. In the wintertime this boat's destination is the south shore of the West Maui Mountains ... the added bonus during this time of year is the numerous whale sightings on the way. The Teralani boats also offer two different Maui sunset sail experiences, one with dinner and one with heavy appetizers. All drinks and food are included with the published rates for the Teralani.
These vessels pull right up onto Kaanapali Beach for boarding ... you take your shoes off and walk across the sand to get on the boat. You will likely get your feet wet as the first step onboard will either be on wet sand or in a few inches of water (you could even get splashed up to your knees if a wave hits while you are boarding). Occassionally we have someone who just can't load this way ... if that's the case consider doing a dinner cruise out of Lahaina Harbor instead.
