The Alii Nui is a custom built, one of a kind, luxury sailing catamaran with a reputation for providing the ultimate in service and amenities. We limit the number of passengers to provide plenty of room to relax and enjoy. Our covered cabin is equipped with ample seating. We also have easy access into the water from the bow and stern with our expert crew helping you every step of the way. Experience the comfort and ease of our complimentary transportation service available from resort areas on the south and west sides of Maui. The Alii Nui offers Morning Snorkel Sails, Afternoon Turtle Snorkels, Whale Watch Excursions, Sunset Sails, Royal Feast Dinner Sails and Wedding Sails. Measuring an impressive 65' from stem to stern and 36' port to starboard, she is truly the premiere sailing catamaran on Maui!

Response from Mauidiveshop | Property representative |
Aloha aleighcole, We generally spend at least an hour at each snorkel location. The flow of the day does depend on the guests on board. If everyone is ready to go, we may head out earlier, or vice versa. Mahalo!
