Maui’s Turtle Town

Turtles are all over the island. There are a few spots that turtles tend to concentrate in specifically. So the truth is that there are more than one Turtle Towns. Because these graceful creatures are not fixed in place, the best way to answer where they are right now, is to ask a knowledgeable representative at Boss Frog’s who’s been to Turtle Town within the last 24 hours. Obviously the most likely people are boat captains and crew. Your best chance to swim with multiple turtles is by taking a boat trip with experienced ocean experts. Another way to get to Turtle Town is by asking a snorkel representative at Boss Frog’s where to access the turtles from the shore. The second best areas for turtles can be found from the shoreline.

Shore Diving Turtle Town, Maui
B&B offers a shore scuba dive with one or two tanks, or even at night. It’s an easy way to get wet without getting on a boat.
After a brief orientation and time to get ready, you and your dive buddy walk out into the water, under the clear warm water, and your imagination takes it from there. Watch the waves crash above you as you venture farther away from the shore to the turtle activity. This is also one of the least expensive dives available at $49.00. For easy booking call 808-856-4271 ext. 55, in Hawaii dial 808-661-3333 ext. 55.
