Waves are calmer here. Not the best snorkeling. Life guards are on duty. Softer sand. Still an enjoyable beach. Shuttle service provided by the Villas.
We had the best trip to Hawaii this spring because of the Jean Cousteau program offerings. We loved the Outrigger Canoeing and swimming with the green turtles and the Snorkeling at Kapalua Bay! We also enjoyed the Tidepool exploration and Star Gazing. Such fun and educational programs for our 2 boys, ages 12 and 10 as well as the adults!
I did the snorkeling dive with them and had a fab time doing that. The instructor was very helpful and very knowledgeable. She was very enthusiastic about diving and ensure that we spent some quality time in the waters. Highly recommend them!
This is a great spot for kids and adults alike to learn about Hawaii and it's environement. It is an easy short walk from the Ritz is unique to have a picture of whales and the Hawaiian Islands painted over a former tennis court. There are still courts available surrounding it of you are planning some tennis.
What a great program! Stop in and see what's going on. They offer programs throughout the week to educate visitors about the local environment. The chef's garden tour was great! Learn about how the hotel is trying to grow as much of it's own food as possible....see the herbs, vegetables, rotating crops. Meet Fred who is responsible for the garden... More

We enjoyed a rain forest hike, outrigger canoeing, stand up paddling, and a snorkeling experience called "Cities Under the Sea". Our guides knew so much and you could tell they really love their jobs. What an awesome trip!
We stayed at Kapalua Villas near the Ritz Carlton, but took advantage of the kids' programs at Jean Michele Cousteau's Ambassadors of the Environment even though we weren't staying at the hotel. They were all great, but we especially enjoyed tide pooling with Libby. For the adults, the Sense of Place film provided great (factual, not hype) background information on... More
We signed up for this three hour excursion, and left with unforgettable memories. We had a chance to become familiar with the history and culture of the Polynesians and their way of life which we found fascinating. We went snorkeling and swam with sea turtles. Our instructors, Tim and China, were very knowledgeable and made it really fun for our... More
My son was 6 when we stayed at the Ritz Carlton. We arranged for him to spend a few hours at the Ambassadors of the Environment program. He loved it so much that he asked to go back 3 others days much to the chagrin of my wife and I. He learned a ton about the environment and this was... More
