Overview

The Four Winds II is a 55 foot glass bottom catamaran, and is fondly referred to as "Maui's Family Fun Boat". Once on board, you'll soon discover why Maui's visitors consider this trip to be one of the best to Molokini or Coral Gardens. With a crew that is completely dedicated to your needs and providing you absolute fun, this trip is a must-do for families visiting Hawaii. The Four Winds II accommodates everyone and provides tons of fun on-deck or in the water snorkeling at top rated reef sites. The Maui Magic is designed for our adventurer's at heart. If you are an adventurer that likes the wind in your hair, getting a chance to see marine life up close in the wild and a more personalized setting... the Maui Magic is for you! The custom-built 54ft., state-of-the-art, fast and comfortable power catamaran is totally unique in every way. It allows the passengers to visit two snorkel spots daily on the trip. This is a true Hawaiian experience, with your captain sharing interesting and unusual facts about Maui's history, legends and culture.
