One of the Best Snorkel Spots on Maui

Honolua Bay is located on Maui’s northwest shore and it’s not only known for pristine snorkeling and scuba diving in the calm summer months, but also for its hollow, powerful waves in the winter high surf season!

Distance Between Hawaiian Islands

Travel Planner:  Distance between the Hawaiian Islands and Airport Codes

Are you looking for a way to travel between the Hawaiian Islands?  There used to be a ferry, but it no longer runs between the island so now you have only two choices.  You may rent a private charter or you can take a commercial inter-island flight.  There are, however, day excursions that let you explore another island and then take you back.
