Crew and boat were great but disappointed in snorkeling. Not as much as I expected to see and weather didn’t permit Turtle Town.

there were no fish in crater where we were. It was very disappointing. the ride back to harbor was fun. Turtle was a disappointment too, because we had to swim so far to get to the turtle. but it wasn't the crews fault. Rough water so they had to anchor out.

I’ve never seen so much coral. It’s really a special spot, so unique. And the water is truly unbelievably clear. Captain and crew are helpful and hilarious. Plenty of food included and very cheap drinks.

We did the morning snorkeling trip to the crater and Turtle town. This was an amazing experience from start to finish! We were able to see so many fish by the crater and turtles in turtle town. The boat trip was about an hour out, 45 min to the second site and about an hour back. We had 45 min to snorkel at the first stop and an hour in the second, which felt like a perfect amount of time. The crew was knowledgeable, helpful and kind. The breakfast and lunch were just what you would expect on a boating trip- muffins, pastries and fruit for breakfast and sandwiches and chips and cookies for lunch. Bring towels, sweatshirt, sunscreen and Dramamine in you are prone to seasickness. I would highly recommend this experience!

This was such a unique experience! We had a great time and really appreciated the service from the crew! We were aboard with Captain Carlos, Dani, and Ryan and they were absolutely amazing. The only thing I would say is that there are NOT a lot of fish to see when snorkeling at Molokini, so if you’re going for the snorkeling, don’t expect an abundance of fish. Turtle town, though, was awesome and we saw quite a few turtles!

Beautiful Experience

It was a great trip only downfall was the weather did not allow for us to visit the crater. The area we were in did not have many fish but we did see turtles💞 the bumping ride on the way home did call for a major splash zone up front. Staff was friendly and drinks were cheap. Pictures were nice but too over priced I recommend bringing your own GoPro or rent one at the shop.

The snorkeling was good, a big south swell made it a little hard to snorkel off shore, but that can not be controlled. The crew worked hard to find a place that worked great. We enjoyed our day!

Other than getting seasick and vomiting it was fine. We did expect more sea-creatures and would have more time at the crater.

Very fun experience. Even as a non swimmer, I would highly recommend this excursion. Captain and crew are professionals and ensure the safety of everyone aboard. They were super nice and the captain had some Grade A dad jokes. The cheap booze offered on the way back is also a plus. Photographer on board was also a great way to capture the memories.

This trip was very nice! The fish at molokini crater are beautiful and we definitely had a good amount of time to see all the fish. The turtle bay was also amazing! All the crew members were friendly. They also had a photographer on board who took photos for purchase which was a good option if you don’t want to worry about photos while snorkeling. They also provide food with a veggie option if you ask a day ahead. Overall, great experience and worth it!
