Do I need to know how to swim?
Yes. We require you at least know how to swim. Having previous snorkeling experience is a plus. If you are new to swimming and snorkeling we recommend our first time snorkeling class/tour. Having a dedicated instructor/tour guide will make snorkeling easy and fun. You will learn how to swim and snorkel by your self next time and enjoy snorkeling.
What is the age and weight limit for the sea scooter snorkeling tour?
We have had ages from 8 years old to 70 years old in our tours. The tour minimum age is not set in stones, we do make exceptions based on the person’s swimming ability. This info would have to be communicated to us via email. However, our guide will still have to assess the person on the day of the tour to ensure he/she is capable of enduring the swim. If our guide is not comfortable with the person’s swimming experience, the tour guide will recommend a private tour if special assistance is needed. The weight limit we recommend 275 lbs or less with great swimming skills.
Do we snorkel from a boat?
No. We do not snorkel from a boat. Our snorkeling starts from the beach, which enhances the use of our scooters. We spend more time snorkeling and less time travelling to the site.
How many people are in my group tour?
We have a minimum of 2 and maximum of 8 guests with two tour guides in our group tour. Yet the smallest group in Maui. (Compare us with boat tours between 90-150 people in your tour) We want you to have fun and enjoy snorkeling with a professional tour guide swimming next to you all the time explaining and showing all the beautiful marine life to you.
Are any other people coming on my Private tour?
No. In your private tour it’s only you, your partner, your family, your group with a dedicated tour guide.
Should I bring a camera?
We recommend checking our photo/video package. Our professional tour guides are equipped with underwater cameras to capture beautiful photos and video for you. This way it gives you more time to enjoy your snorkeling. If you still want to bring your camera, only GoPros are allowed. We also have GoPro to rent and use it during the tour.
What temperature is the water on Maui? How far/Deep do we go?
Lucky for us the water temperature year-round is between 75 to 80F (24 to 26.5C).
Do we need to bring breakfast/lunch?
We advise eating a light breakfast and to drink and bring plenty of water before you arrive to the beach.
What are the best conditions for snorkeling on Maui?
Typically in the mornings before the trade winds kick up. Fortunately, our scooters let us go far enough we can find clearer water than snorkelers without scooters.”
