Living on Oahu, Grace Towle knows all the best places where locals go.

No matter your skill level, Maui is the perfect place to strap on snorkel gear, jump in the warm water and explore marine life. Some of the great places to snorkel in Wailea include Mokapu, Ulua Beach Park (shallow reefs close to shore good for beginners and the deeper reef has turtles), Wailea Beach Park, Polo Beach Park (although during large swells, this can be a dangerous spot to snorkel), Po’olenalena Beach (a local favorite where it’s easy to spot turles), and Makena Landing (where most snorkeling tours begin since it’s home to Turtle Town, the largest turtle cleaning station on the island).

Here at Local Getaways, we highly recommend snorkeling tours. They take you to the best spots, provide all the necessary gear, and offer the safest way to explore Maui’s waters.
