Return Details

Returns to original departure point
A half-crescent volcanic caldera located just off the South Maui shoreline, Molokini Crater is world famous for its crystalline waters for diving. Aside from the blue, exceptionally clear waters, what makes snorkeling at Molokini Crater one of the best activities on Maui, is the way the crater shelters the water from wind, current, and waves. Here, over 200 species of tropical fish all flit above fields of coral, with morning hours offering the best conditions for swimming, snorkeling, and diving.

After exiting the water at Molokini Crater, relax on the stable, two deck vessel for the motor to Maui’s shoreline, where the Molokini snorkel cruise continues with a search for wild Hawaiian Green sea turtles. At a protected bay on the Keawalai shoreline, you can either spot the turtles from atop the wraparound upper sun deck, or splash into the turquoise waters for the chance to view them up close.

Once you’ve snorkeled all you can handle, visit the filling, BBQ lunch that’s served onboard the boat, which is accompanied by beer, wine, soda, and the infamous P.K. rum punch (open bar). A continental breakfast is also served during the morning of this Molokini snorkel cruise, and don’t forget to pack the towels and bring your reef safe sunscreen.

Everyone was pleasant and knowledgeable about the tour. We were pleased with the quality of this tour from beginning to end. A little disappointed that we didn't see many fish when we went however, that's not the control of anyone. A beautiful experience!

Had a wonderful time. The conditions were perfect and the guides were very helpful. In particular, the highlight was Turtle Town where we were able to swim with quite a few sea turtles. The boat ride was also very enjoyable and the tour provided a nice lunch for all.

Good snorkel cruise to Molokini Crater and Turtle Town on a beautiful morning. A well-organized trip, from check-in to disembarking - the crew ran it like clockwork. The Turtle Town stop was the highlight, with beautiful coral, abundant fish, and a couple turtles swimming in the area.

The activity itself was good but there were too many people on our cruise. The crew did their best to accommodate everyone. They offered many things including scuba diving training, snorkel lessons and underwater camera rentals.

It was nice that we were picked up but then it was 100 people on a boat first stop had some black fish nothing spectacular and then turtle stop had one turtle. Lunch was cooked as we were arriving at 8 am but eaten 2 hours later and was terrible - hot dogs and hamburgers. I would not recommend this at all.

We booked 5 excursions and this was the best one! Well organized and tons of fun! They catered to the novice as well as the experienced! Breakfast and the BBQ lunch was delicious. We saw fish, eels and an octopus at Molokini, swam with turtles at the 2nd location and sipped Mai Tai's!!! A++

Good time, great snorkel place, good boat crew. Only issue was no confirmation of pickup time, and we were surprised by a 6:40am for what was supposed to be an 8:45am trip, which actually started at 7:45 instead.
