OVERVIEW

Our first destination on this trip will be captain's choice of one of the many reefs nestled in the protected bays at the base of the majestic West Maui Mountains. This area is rich in coral gardens which provide a canopy of hard coral with nooks and crannies that draw a spectacular array of marine life.

Our second destination will visit the Manta Ray cleaning station where Mantas like to gather to be cleaned by the Hawaiian wrasse fish. The wing span of the near-shore Pacific Manta Ray averages 5 to 8 feet but can reach well over 14 feet. The mantas have no teeth, no stinger, and a harmless disposition. Their only defense is to flee. The dive location will also provide an opportunity to see many other fish endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. Harlequin shrimp take residence around coral heads and triton's trumpets and nudibranchs are found nestled in crevices.

Between the end of December and the end of April this trip affords a great opportunity to see humpback whales in the waters surrounding Maui which is a National Marine Sanctuary for these endangered whales.
