Maui’s newest and most luxurious sailing catamaran, the 65′ Hula Girl is truly state-of-the-art. From her teak accents and comfortable seating on the foredeck … to the VIP lounge and hi-tech navigation station on the flybridge … this multi-million dollar custom catamaran will just make you say “wow.” Hula Girl snorkel provides daily morning departures right from Kaanapali beach for their premium 5 hour snorkel tour. Cruise along the West Maui coastline to premier snorkeling destinations such as Honolua Bay Marine Preserve. Dive platforms at the stern and a wide stairway between the bows provides easy access to the underwater world. The tour includes high-quality snorkel equipment. Scuba diving is available as an on-board option; introductory diving is $75 and certified diving is $65 (in addition to the snorkeler rate). Maui experiences steady trade winds about 90% of the year; after snorkeling the crew of the Hula Girl typically puts the 97 foot rotating mast and her racing sails through their paces … enjoy trade wind sailing on the journey back to Kaanapali Beach!. The Hula Girl was conceived as a “step up” from your standard snorkel boat … the concept is to provide a “high-quality restaurant and bar that sails.” This vessel is actually equipped with a full commercial kitchen and drinks and beverages are ordered a la carte off their menu and prepared to order.  Check out the Breakfast/Lunch Menu!

Chula girl snorkelruise Ship Passengers

NCL cruise ship passengers in Kahului are able to do the Hula Girl snorkel tour on the morning of their second day, but a dirve of an hour is required. We recommend that you do a Molokini snorkel tour instead as Maalaea Harbor is much closer to your ship. Lahaina cruise ship passengers are able to do the Hula Girl snorkel as long as your ship is in port on one of the days that this tour operates. A short cab ride of about 10 minutes is required.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

The nicest … and newest sailboat … in Hawaii … without a doubt … is the Hula Girl. This stunning new boat has replaced the venerable Kapalua Kai and is now offering the ultimate in comfort and luxury in snorkel tours and dinner cruises here on Maui. This boat is SOMETHING … flat screen TV’s, killer sound system, teak accents, closed circuit video systems to monitor all the decks and keep an eye on the sails, digital charting at the navigation station … all I can say is I am glad I don’t have to pay the mortgage on this multi-million dollar vessel.

The Hula Girl was conceived to be a high-quality restaurant experience that happens to float around on the water for added ambiance. Food is prepared to order on-board in their commercial galley … do keep in mind that this means you will need to bring your wallet along on the tour … all food and beverages are purchased a la carte. Prices are reasonable though … and complete menus are posted with each tour offering above.

The Hula Girl pulls right up onto Kaanapali Beach for boarding … you take your shoes off and walk across the sand to get on the boat. You will likely get your feet wet as the first step onboard will either be on wet sand or in a few inches of water (you could even get splashed up to your knees if a wave hits while you are boarding). Occasionally we have someone who just can’t load this way … if that’s the case consider doing a Sunset Dinner Cruise out of Lahaina Harbor instead.
