Experience Paragon Molokini Snorkel Sail, the leading sailing catamaran company on the island of Maui.  Their twin vessels, Paragon & Paragon II are constructed with new techniques, hull design, and state-of-the-art rotating carbon fiber masts.  The mast technology is the same as America’s Cup winning catamaran, which creates high speeds along with safety and comfort.  For over 20 years, Paragon has been committed to serving visitors and locals.  Due to the smaller sized groups, the tours are personal and are guided by an experienced and friendly crew of sailors.  Paragon catamarans focuses on performance sailing, and they will only go to Molokini instead of motoring around to multiple snorkel sites.  You will experience an exhilarating trade wind sail along with exploring the unique snorkeling at Molokini.

Paragon II will sail you to the crescent shaped crater where over 250 species of tropical fish reside.  It is a natural marine preserve and a one of a kind snorkeling destination.  The combination of performance sailing and snorkeling is what perfect Hawaiian days are made of!  The Paragon II can reach speeds in excess of 20 knots, and the afternoon trade winds can really get this boat going!  As you sail leisurely across Ma’alaea Bay, enjoy a continental breakfast.  A full lunch buffet with beverages is served after you swim and snorkel at Molokini.  You can also rinse off with their fresh hot/cold water shower.  Watch as the humpback whales jump and play during whale season, December through May!

Tour Includes: Continental breakfast, and buffet lunch & beverages including local beer & wine.

Gear Provided: Snorkel gear and on board reef safe sunscreen.

What to Bring & Wear: A hat, sunglasses, camera, reusable water bottle, and towels. They do not provide towels, however they keep a small inventory on the boat for purchase.  On the sunset sail, especially during the winter months, you may want to bring a light jacket.

Gear Provided: They snorkel gear and will fit you for correct size.  They also have a few optical masks on board, so let us know if you require one and they’ll do our best to accommodate you.  You are also welcome to bring your own snorkel gear.

Restrictions:  They do not allow spray-on sunscreen because it has a tendency to go everywhere, including the deck.  This can make maneuvering around the boat very slippery and hazardous.  Also, it is generally very toxic to the ocean environment.  Sail Maui are huge advocates of using reef-safe sunscreen to preserve the marine ecosystem, and they provide reef-safe sunscreen as a courtesy on both of their boats.  They highly recommend using their marine friendly sunscreen, because chemicals in conventional brands wash off your skin while snorkeling and can kill coral and promote bleaching.

Note: They can provide vegetarian or gluten free options through their catering companies, although people with severe nut allergies or who have celiac disease should be aware that they cannot guarantee there has been no cross contamination.

There are times that Molokini weather can be a bit unpredictable.  If this happens, they will sail to another snorkel destination with more suitable conditions.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations must be made at least 48 hours before the start of the event.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Paragon’s Molokini snorkel trip departs from Maalaea Harbor, which is known as one of the WINDIEST harbors in the world. Haleakala to the East and the West Maui Mountains to the West amplify the wind speeds in the middle, where this harbor is located. The result? On the way back from Molokini when the tradewind kick up in late morning it is often ummm … scratch that … it is USUALLY … actually it is ALMOST ALWAYS extremely windy on the way back, which makes for excellent sailing conditions. There are a few other Molokini boats that also have sails … several of them are ornamental though. Paragon is different. These guys really do sail every chance they get!
