If you’re headed to Maui, you’ll no doubt schedule your fair share of time at the beach. But don’t forget to arrange some time on the water as well. Maui’s western and southern shores are absolutely perfect for boating, with several islands offshore and many opportunities for wildlife sightings, especially whales in the winter. Scuba diving, sailing, kayaking, and fishing charters are also great ways to experience the ocean.
