Many people vacationing in Maui do so primarily because of the beautiful beaches and ocean. What comes to mind when you think of Hawaii? Sand, beaches, and water, for most people. If you’ve booked one of our Maui condo rentals and are heading to the island in search of ocean activities, there are plenty to choose from! We’ve listed a few below, to help you dream of the fun you’ll have before you ever arrive.
Naturally, swimming is something the entire family can enjoy in the cool, clear waters, where you can float, swim, or just lay in the sun and drink in the beauty that surrounds you.
Scuba diving is a favorite ocean activity for those who are certified, and where better to experience ocean life than in Maui? Today, you can even travel at high speeds with a scooter between your legs!
And how about “snuba” diving? If you haven’t heard of the latest trend, this is a combination of scuba diving and snorkeling. No air tank is required for snuba diving, and it doesn’t require certification or experience. Instead of strapping on a heavy tank to supply air, the tank is connected above you, to a small raft that sits on top of the water. Instead of staying close to the surface, as you would with snorkeling, you can explore the ocean depths with ease!
Surfing and bodyboarding are other favorite water activities, whether you enjoy shortboarding, stand-up paddling, or body or wind surfing. Bodyboarding and big wave surfing are other options you will enjoy, depending on the swell and weather conditions.
Rather go fishing or kayaking? No problem, as Maui offers ample opportunities for those who enjoy the physical challenge of kayaking or catching their own dinner. Various charters are available for Maui bottom fishing, and kayaking is ideal for those who enjoy snorkeling and want to “get at” those areas that are a bit more difficult to access.
Sailing is a relaxing, peaceful experience on the island and visitors love enjoying the breathtaking sunsets while sailing, after an afternoon taking in the gorgeous mountains and spectacular surroundings.
For those who love nothing better than a thrilling challenge, spearfishing is a favorite ocean activity rivaled only by surfing. Imagine holding your breath while you’re trying to spear a fish that moves with incredible speed! A huge challenge, but thoroughly rewarding for those who succeed.
Sunset cruises, touring the depths of the ocean via submarine, and cliff diving are some other water adventures you’ll love. Whether your intention is to relax on the clear, pristine waters or engage in an activity that’s a bit more challenging, there’s something for everyone when it comes to the ocean!
After a waterlogged day, no doubt, you’ll want a comfortable place to relax, unwind, and get a wonderful night’s sleep so you’ll be prepared and rejuvenated for the next day’s activities. Our Maui condo rentals are luxurious, spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed, with all of the features and amenities you could imagine. Book yours today, before it’s too late!
