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!

Did the exact same tour as in 2014, and loved it! Friendly crew, small group (which makes it a private type of experience), great boat and delicious food. Highly recommended! Check their schedule; they run this tour 2 evenings a week I believe. We went...More

This was definitely an adventure I would not have wanted to miss! Crew was top notch, food was great and having lifeguards was a definite plus. The was an experience worth repeating.

We enjoyed the boat ride, the refreshments and drinks, but unfortunately, our turtle snorkel excursion didn’t have any turtles. I believe the weather/winds prevented us from going to a better location. Overall, we enjoyed it and the captain and his crew were great!

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!
