Maui Shipwreck Snorkeling

Maui Shipwreck Diving

This boat came to its final resting place under the water just off Maui’s western coast near Lahaina town. Now it is used as an artificial reef, drawing a community of Pacific reef fish–and visitors to watch.

Several people a day get to experience the wreck up-close-and-personal while diving, snorkeling, or looking through the windows of a glass-bottom boat.

Shipwrecks seem to intrigue our minds and capture our imaginations with what happened and the now ghostly appearance. Although not nearly as active as the Caribbean, Hawaii has its fair share of wrecked ships and riveting waterman stories.
