While there are many beautiful things that Big Island travellers look forward to during their vacation on this part of Hawaii, its pristine waters teeming with marine life has got to be on top of everyone’s list.
The Island of Maui has some of the most diverse scenery and attractions in all of Hawaii, as it is home to long stretches of beautiful golden and white beaches, picturesque valleys, mountains, and other land formations, and breathtaking bodies of crystal clear waters. Only a few know, however, know that the island also prides itself in absolutely spectacular, completely out of this world, underwater views. Fortunately, Maui’s underwater world is accessible to tourists through the numerous tour operators offering a variety of package tours, and one of these tours, amazingly, lets you go on an underwater adventure without getting wet! If you are one of those who would rather discover the island’s underwater charm without the hassle of changing into the proper gear, getting wet, and swimming in open water, then Reef Dancer’s Reef Viewing Adventure and Dive Show is the perfect for you! While the 90-minute tour is the longer option, trust that an hour and 30 minutes will never be enough for such an amazing experience, and will definitely leave you wanting more!
Founded over three decades ago, Reef Dancer is your passport to Maui’s breathtaking underwater world, and is most famous for bringing to Maui its first semi-submersible. Semi-submersibles are great underwater vehicles, and have now become the more popular below-the-surface transportation because they are a great alternative to the glass-bottom boats, where passengers just look down through the transparent flooring of the vessel to catch the views down under. In a semi-submersible, your ride actually goes under the water, and its comfortable bottom cabin and large viewing windows allow you to see the panoramic views of Maui underwater. When you book the Reef Viewing Adventure and Dive Show, you and your companions will ride such an amazing vehicle, which is also called the Reefdancer, by the way!
Reef Dancer’s Reef Viewing Adventure and Dive Show departs from Lahaina Harbor, and then brings its passengers to an underwater expedition in Maui’s only barrier reef. Here, you will not only catch sight of majestic coral reef formations, but you will also get an up-close look at the different kinds of brightly colored reed fish, such as Hawaii’s state fish, the Humuhumunukunukuapua’a! As this is the 90-minute option, you will surely meet a lot more of these sea creature friends, enjoying themselves and swimming freely in their natural habitat.
Reef Dancer’s Reef Viewing Adventure and Dive Show is called as such because it is not only a viewing expedition, but also a chance for Reef Dancer’s certified divers to treat you to a show featuring Maui’s diverse marine life! Once the Reefdancer arrives at the best viewing site, the divers will jump into the water and search for exotic sea creatures that they will bring right to your viewing window! As this tour, again, is an underwater adventure without you needing to get wet, you will then be able to take lovely photos of these critters even without an underwater action camera. After taking those pictures, listen as Reef Dancer’s experienced narrator will enlighten you about these beautiful animals and the entire marine life of Maui Island. Truly an exciting adventure and an educational experience at the same time!
After the excursion, guests may then ride up on the Reefdancer’s top deck to enjoy above-the-surface views next! Here, get an amazingly breathtaking view of the West Maui mountains from the ocean, and as well as its pristine waters so relaxing and peaceful to gaze at. Get ready to take more photos again, as the sights are just as amazing above water as they are down below. Note, though, that guests are welcome to hang out at the Reefdancer’s top deck at any time during the tour, even before or during the reef viewing and dive show.
