Welcome to Turtle Town [Video]

Whether you’re a snorkeler, diver, animal enthusiast or you just have a burning urge to look at sea creatures, Turtle Town is the place for you. Many of Maui’s beaches are full of turtles so friendly and curious that they’ll swim to you. It’s the perfect opportunity to encounter these creatures in a safe and stress-free environment.

Ask for directions to Turtle Town around Maui, and you’ll probably get at least three different answers. Plenty of locations around the island have earned the “Turtle Town” moniker, and all for good reason – they all live up to the name, so feel free to head to whichever spot is closest.

Remember, keep a respectful distance. You wouldn’t want a turtle to come into your home and pat you on the head – pay it the same courtesy. Have fun, and enjoy your swim!
