Dry Dock Alert Four Winds Maui
From Sunday, October 25th through Sunday, November 15th, the Four Winds II will be unavailable for tours while she is in for her routine Dry Dock on Oahu.
Every two years, we take her out of the water to do a complete maintenance and make improvements. Should you wish to take a snorkel trip during these dates, we recommend that you check-out our other boat, THE MAUI MAGIC.
If you don’t have children under 5, or need a lot of shade, the Maui Magic is the ideal vessel for your Maui snorkel adventures! Fast and nimble, the Magic actually visits two snorkel sites (Molokini and another that is chosen daily by the Captain). The second snorkel site is where you can actually see and snorkel with turtles. Additionally, this trip also features a daily dolphin search where we look for Spinner and Bottle Nose dolphins in the wild!
It is great that you have chosen to book with Four Winds. We look forward to welcoming you onboard soon!
Four Winds II - Glass Bottom Viewing Room
Havin' Fun with Four Winds... awesome glass bottom views!
Room Size: 65 Square Feet Panels: 3/4 Inch Thick Lexan Underwater Viewing: 180 Degrees Location: Inside Port Hull, Below the Waterline Access: Ladder-Style Staircase
Maui's Unique Glass Bottom Boat
Four Winds II is the only vessel on Maui to have a glass bottom viewing room that you can actually sit in! While other boats are only outfitted with a simple viewing port, they do not offer the 180 degree, total-immersion experience that sitting in an actual room, with glass below and in-front of you, provides!. It’s almost like sitting directly on top of the water!
When it comes to a non-swimmer, young child or grandparent, that is able go up and down the ladder-style staircase, there is nothing that can compare to our glass bottom viewing room, for providing them a great way to take a glimpse under the water without even having to get wet! Even those who have apprehensions with snorkeling, and questions about "what's below", can simply sit, relax and watch from the safety and comfort of this unique room! And this is no small room either! Our glass bottom room can accommodate three to five kids and a few adults all at the same time.
No Other Like It On Maui!
Sometimes, when the opportunity permits, our underwater diver will give the lucky people inside the room a show too! Our diver can even capture photos or video from outside looking in. Because the glass bottom room is inside the port hull, just below the waterline, an experienced swimmer or snorkeler can do a shallow dive and swim-up and say "aloha" to family or friends that may be inside the room. In fact, there is no better photo opportunity than the expression on your child's face when they look through the glass, for the first time, and see the fish or even watch mom or dad snorkel or SNUBA. And for the grandparent (or non-swimmer) who wants to be "part of the action" but does not want to swim, this gives them the opportunity to enjoy the thrill of watching the family snorkel.
We had this unique glass bottom feature specially incorporated into our boat design in order to provide everyone a chance to see and experience what is below the amazing underwater world of Molokini and Coral Gardens. This is just another one of the many reasons why the Four Winds II is the boat for everyone!
