Maui Classic Charters has a fleet of two unique boats, the Four Winds II (a sail-assisted power catamaran) and the Maui Magic (a fast power catamaran), and a crew that is second-to-none! These boats visit multiple snorkel destinations and offer a variety of cruises. Our pledge is to provide you with a fun experience and make your visit to Hawaii truly memorable.
Went on the Four Winds II, there were just so many fish and the coral formations were breathtaking! My mom doesn't snorkel, but she was able to go into your glass-bottom viewing room and she actually could watch her grandchildren snorkeling... sooooo cool!
FIVE BIG STARS for Maui Magic Snorkeling and the crew!! My fiancé and I wanted snorkeling and whale-watching while we were in Maui, and we definitely got both plus some sea turtles with Maui Magic. They take fewer people than other big boats, and it was nice not to have a huge crowd.
I have been on Maui Magic 4 times in our past 3 visits to Maui. Every time we visit Maui it is the most fun/exciting/memorable excursion we go on. The crew is so friendly, fun and helpful! Every time we have seen something different. Dolphins, whales, sea turtles... such an amazing experience!
Dear Four Winds II, On behalf of Make-A-Wish Foundation of Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley, we would like to thank you for making Matthew’s wish special and unforgettable. Your kindness and generosity will stay with Matthew forever.
The Maui Magic has the ideal size, taking up to 50 people. We saw many dolphins, swam with turtles and saw the incredible variety of fish at Molokini. After the last dive a delicious barbecue with cold beer until the Maalaea Harbor. A great day.
Your crew on the Four Winds II was also amazing! They treated us like we were royalty! We were not sure about what to expect at Coral Gardens, but I have to say... it was beyond my expectations.
We went on the Four Winds II snorkel to Coral gardens it was very calm and beautiful. I saw so many fish, and a SEA TURTLE, I literally swam side by side him! I loved every minute of this trip!
The experience on Maui Magic is truly one to remember. But what caps it off is the great crew of this boat who go the extra step to make sure you are comfortable and feel like family.
The Four Winds II is Fun, Fun, and More Fun! That really describes our entire day that we spent at Molokini last week. The kids loved the water slide so much. Actually, my husband was acting like a kid that day too and had his equal share of trips down the slide.

* Reaching Molokini depends upon daily weather, wind and ocean conditions. In the afternoon, Maui’s prevailing tradewinds often make it difficult to reach Molokini. Our optional snorkeling site is another top rated spot known as Coral Gardens.
** We see marine life on all our trips! Turtle encounters occur close to Maui’s shorelines. Find them on our Four Winds Afternoon Snorkel tour or the Maui Magic Adventure tour. Molokini rarely has turtles due to its off shore location.
