Shoreline Snorkel's Night Snorkels of Maui, Hawaii
Only Company on Maui Offering guided beach Night Snorkels!


(Per Person)

The reef really does come alive at night! Here in Maui differnt creatures come out at night that you hardly ever see during the day time, including: lobster, squid, ulua and many others.

We use high end LED dive lights and wetsuits for snorkeling, so you can see more and be comfortable! We keep the groups small and private to ensure a high level of personal attention for you. Night Snorkel here in Maui Hawaii!

What can I see at night vs the day?

At night, all the creatures that are hiding under the reef come out to explore, feed and mate.


Lobsters are some of our favorite, not just to look at! During lobster season we can do a night snorkel/Lobster Hunt!


Octopus also come out onto the reef to hunt! They like to camouflage themselves on top of the reef or crawl around in the sand!

Bioluminescence comes out at night.


You will see blue or green flashing lights when we turn off our flashlights and wave our hands around or swim!


The production and emission of light by a living organism (fungi, microorganisms is what causes this amazing phenomenon!

What kind of equipment do we use?

We use High Power LED Diving flashlights, (SL4e-LED) They are 400 lumes bright and will do a wonderful job of illuminating the underwater reefs of Maui!


The focused beam is excellent at finding creatures from a long distance away due to this being a very bright compact dive light!


This light is great for peeking under ledges to find hidden creatures like octopus or lobsters!


We use 3mm thick wetsuits to keep you nice and warm while we are night snorkeling!


The wetsuits come in many sizes to fit you, please let us know about children as we have sizes for them as well.


Maui ocean water temperatures are from 77 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit (C26-C27). Even during the night!
