About Our Tours
Blue Water Rafting has been offering a variety of high adventure snorkeling and sightseeing tours since early 1985. Due to the range of sea conditions encountered and the lively nature of the ride, these tours are not recommended for people with limiting physical conditions. People with previous or current back or neck injuries, recent major surgeries, or are pregnant, should not book the tour and will not be allowed on board.
All tours depart from the Kihei Boat Ramp

Parties wishing to guarantee a particular boat may opt for a private charter. All boats have easy boarding ladders and are approx. 60% shaded by canopies.
Dont Just Take Our WOrd For it
“We did the 5.5 hour snorkeling/whale watch tour and it was incredible. We saw at least two dozen whales, several full breaches, calves, mothers, etc.. We even put a microphone down and listened to them sing, WOW!!
We snorkeled at 4 different locations, each unique. One along the lava fields south Maui, two near Molokini Crater (amazing), and a turtle hangout on the south shore (we saw 7-10 turtles swimming at one time).
Mark, our guide, was a full time entertainer and pretty dang decent captain. Darron, the first mate, was extremely helpful and kind. They made the day extra special.. Highly recommend, a world class experience.”
