Your journey begins within the safe confines of the Kihei Boat Ramp which enjoys the protection of the 10,000 foot volcano, Mt. Haleakala.

Early morning departures are for the Kanaio Coast, where side vents erupted from the volcano as recently as 1790.

Late morning departures are for Molokini, a crescent shaped volcanic tuff cone about 5 miles away, rated as one one the top ten dive and snorkel locations in the world.


  Maui has some of the most beautiful coastal scenery on earth. On a clear day, as many as 6 different islands can be seen at one time if you include Molokini (technically an islet).

This view of the island of Lanai, as we exit the Kihei Boat Ramp, shows clouds stacking above the former pineapple plantation.
