We know the most secluded snorkel spots where you can explore Maui’s beautiful coral reefs and swim with sea turtles, tropical fish and so much more. Kaha Loa’s speed and smooth ride lets us take you to amazing spots away from the crowds. But what you’ll appreciate the most is our excellent service and personal attention to you and your family. It’s an extra special treat for our Captain and crew to share the amazing world beneath the waves with all of our guests here in our Hawaiian waters. We’ve got all the best snorkel gear, including plenty of floaties and noodles to ensure swimmers of all skill levels feel right at home.
Each winter, thousands of humpback whales travel all the way down from Alaska to splash around in the warm waters of Hawaii, and Maui is the best place to see them. Kaha Loa’s engines are whisper quiet, and we never have a noisy generator running, so we’re ideally suited for the whales to come get up
close and personal. And the best thing is that every seat on the boat is a front row seat. Take a look at our photo gallery to see the up-close encounters our past guests have enjoyed. Then spend your day with us on Kaha Loa and catch a glimpse of Hawai’i’s real life nature show.
* While whale watching is not always available, dolphins live here year-round!
Few things offer as much thrill and excitement as hooking up a big mahi mahi, ono, or ahi and then reeling it in. Aboard Kaha Loa you can catch the fish of a lifetime while cruising in absolute comfort!
Our rods and reels are top of the line, and we’ve got a huge assortment of lures to target exactly the fish you’re after. Captain Henore knows all the secret spots where the fish are biting, and the boat is always stocked with plenty of coolers and ice to keep your fresh catch cold, and your beer even colder. The
most important thing about a day of fishing on Kaha Loa is that it’s fun for the whole family. While we’re always happy to get rowdy for a boys’ day out, our highly professional captain and crew keep the boat clean and safe for the whole family to have an amazing day of fishing.
Kaha Loa features spacious bow seating so you can lie back and share a spectacular view with the people you care about. We go faster and further to take you away from the crowds, and get beyond the same old spots as every other boat. Want pictures of the sunset behind the island? We’re there. Want to see the green flash when the sun sets over the water? Get your camera ready! And the best part of the day is the personal service provided by our captain and crew. Sit back and ride in comfort while they keep your drinks topped off, and your favorite tunes cranking on the radio. Come experience the Kaha Loa difference!
“We booked a 4 hour morning with Captain Henore and he made certain we had all the best gear for fishing and snorkling. He is an extremely knowledgable captain and was kind and thoughtful about our day. He had the boat completely outfitted with every type of beverage imaginable and made certain we were comfortable. His crew member Todd was smiley and fun and we too saw a pod of dolphins and zipped right along with them. It was worth every penny and my teenage sons (twins 15 ) said that the charter was their favorite part of our vacation..we horseback rode, went jet skiing, surfed, and went to Lanai..this trip with the Fabulous Captain Henore took the top spot. You will not be sorry planning an outing with him.”
“I arranged this private 2 hour sunset cruise as a surprise for my fiancé through our concierge at our hotel. All I can say is that this company brings the personal touch that makes you feel special. I booked this tour early before we arrived to Maui. Our captain, Captain Henore Letourneau, was given my contact via the concierge (with my permission) and immediately reached out to me the day of with a personal phone call to discuss the charter with me. He was able to arrange for a bottle of champagne and wine of my choosing that were favorites of my fiancé and he also made chocolate covered strawberries (he PERSONALLY made these for us). “[…]
“We had the most amazing whale watching tour on the Kaha Loa with Henore and Will. It was a 4 hour visit and was arranged as a ‘surprise’ birthday present for my husband. The booking with Mike was easy to do – he was very helpful in organizing the tour with me. The boat was great and we were able to see many, many whales on this trip. Being on a smaller boat also made it such an intimate, special occassion. Henore and Will were awesome and shared their knowledge of the whales with us. They were friendly, funny, and accommodating. They used a special microphone in the water so that we could hear the whales – which was unbelievable. It was definitiely the highlight of our trip to Maui this February and we can hardly wait to book again for next February.”
“DO THIS!!! Loved it!!! Awesome trip whale watching and snorkeling!!! Trust me, you want to do a private boat tour instead of being crammed on a big boat with no say in where you go. And this boat is great because it has a canopy covering part of it so you can go back and forth between sun and shade. Captain Henore was amazing, friendly, and knowledgeable. We completely trusted him and had such a memorable time with him. The whales were amazing, ocean was beautiful, and snorkeling with sea turtles is incredible. Highly recommend!!!”
“Incredible Day With Whales, Dolphins, Turtles and more! This was our second charter with Capt. Henore and Patrick, and it was just as incredible as the first. The crew does an amazing job with excellent service, knowledge of the islands and marine life, and effortless mastery of the boat among the many coves and secret spots. This time we were blessed with more whales sightings than one could count, scuba diving off Lanai with 100+ ft visibility with turtles, octopus and more. Then while taking a swim in a quiet cove all to ourselves, along came a pod of spinner dolphins. Do yourself a favor and book the Kaha Loa. It will provide life long memories!”
