Dry Dock Alert Maui Magic
From today until February 1st, 2016, the Maui Magic is unavailable for tours while she is in for her routine Dry Dock on the Island of Oahu.
Every two years, we take her out of the water to do a complete maintenance and make improvements. Should you wish to take a snorkel trip during these dates, we recommend that you check-out our other vessel, THE FOUR WINDS II.
The Four Winds II is spacious catamaran, with a glass bottom viewing room and lots of shaded cabin area, which makes it an ideal boat for couples, and families with children. Although she does not offer a Dolphin Search, or visits the exact locations as The Maui Magic, The Four Winds II does snorkel at Molokini (weather and conditions permitting) and also Coral Gardens. Known as "Maui's Family Fun Boat", the Four Winds II delivers a great time, delicious food, boasts a fantastic crew and provides you with awesome snorkeling!
It is great that you have chosen to book with Four Winds. We look forward to welcoming you onboard soon!
Other than dolphins and turtles, what other marine life will I typically see?
Wow, well that is a long list of amazing marine creatures you have the chance to see! On any given snorkel you can see dozens of different types of marine life! On most any day you have the chance to see Parrotfish, Butterflyfish, Wrasses, Black Triggerfish (also known as Black Durgon), Surgeonfish, Unicornfish, Goatfish, Tangs, Pencil Urchins, and more!
Just remember that the longer you snorkel... The more you will see!
Another type of marine creature, people often forget is alive, is coral. The amount of corals vary in density and population depending on the location we snorkel at. While Hawaii does not have the highly colorful soft corals like the South Pacific does, you can typically see Antler Coral, Lace Coral, and a variety of Cauliflower Corals when you snorkel. Hawaii is actually home to two types of unique Cauliflower Corals that are endemic only to our waters.
Corals may grow as little as 1/4 inch per year and are prone to damage by anchors, swimmers, and divers. So please remember not to touch or step on live coral. Their delicate structure may be injured and then allow infection or algae to take hold, weakening and potentially killing the entire colony. Since December 1998 it is illegal, in Hawaii, to collect live corals at any time without a scientific collecting permit.
So remember, when it comes to the marine life... Enjoy them without causing damage. Take pictures and take home memories and not marine life.
