You come to Maui to have epic experiences, right? Months before your arrival, you’ll spend time daydreaming of the island vibes and aquamarine waters – imagining yourself swimming, sunning, snorkeling, diving, feasting, and drinking in deep relaxation and happiness. One of the most unique places to make all this happen is aboard the brand-new Calypso Maui.
The Calypso Maui is ready to take you on exciting ocean excursions. The boat launches from Ma’alaea – the most easily reached, centralized harbor on the island. You can go on the morning Molokini Snorkeling Tour, the sunset Dinner Cruise, the seasonal Whale Watch, and – for super special occasions, the Private Charter!
This motorized catamaran is built with three decks of fun, and is a wonderful vessel for landlubbers and ocean adventurers alike. The Calypso Maui operates like a spacious, floating amusement park, and her double hulls are built for stability. When the boat is moving forward, the twin hulls cut smartly through the water, leaving most of the craft to float high above the waves, and ride on top of the sea-surface winds. This leads to a comfortable, smooth trip for you and your group, even when island tradewinds factor in.
The views from Calypso Maui are better than any other boat for miles, because she is the only vessel on the island that has three decks. As a bonus, you’ll find glass panels on the bottom of the boat, too! Two of the cabins are completely covered from the sun, but both ends are open to the sea air. The huge tinted windows along both the port and starboard sides ensure that you always have a good view of the great Pacific beyond the railings. Year round, it’s good to keep your eyes open for flying fish, sea turtles, dolphins, false killer whales, and other fantastic marine animals who may be up near the surface. During whale season (mid-December through mid-April), come out to see the 45-ton humpback whales! Once you’ve seen a whale, nothing else can compare.
Our fun, dynamic, and experienced crew is there for you no matter what you need, and safety is paramount. If you come out with us to Molokini Crater, the captain and crew will teach you what you need to know in order to snorkel and snuba dive. Crew members will explain how to use the wide dive steps, two water slides, or the “leap of faith” jump-off point to enter the water, and they will entertain you with little-known facts about the islands that you are gliding past. The crew will also have delicious food and drinks at the ready, along with local insider tips, good humor, and Aloha.
