The Highest of Royalty – Alii Nui
The Alii Nui is a custom-built luxury sailing catamaran. The boat is 65 feet long and 36 feet wide.
With a spacious main cabin featuring 8 tables, there is plenty of room to relax and enjoy your Maui snorkeling trip. The crew is first class; there to pamper your every desire.
The Alii Nui provides top of the line snorkel gear, boogie boards, water noodles, wetsuits and optical masks. Alii Nui also provides large terry towels for after snorkeling. Everything is included with your tickets.
After snorkeling, you can rinse off the salt water with a hot water shower.
Huka diving is like Snuba. An oxygen tank is placed on a small raft with a 20-foot hose attached to your snorkel. With a weight belt added to you, swimming under the water for about 35 minutes is a blast. The groups are small with only 4 to a group along with a dive master. Huka is a great way to take advantage of snorkeling at Molokini or Turtle Point presenting a new look to snorkeling.
Alii Nui is sponsored by Maui Dive Shop. Known mostly as a retail outlet that rents and sells snorkel gear, Maui Dive Shop was born as a small store in 1978 located at the Maui Mall in Kahului by Bob Chambers. It was a small shop that catered to locals and tourist. After years of struggling Mr. Chambers moved the store to Azeka Plaza in Kihei. This move put Maui Dive Shop closer to the visitor industry, which changed the course of history for Maui Dive Shop.
