Snorkel satisfaction

Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
We absolutely loved this excursion! The crew were all fantastic, the food was surprisingly great, the photo package was such a perfect bonus. They have everything perfectly scheduled, from announcements to handing out gear to lunch, and there's plenty of time to snorkel and see the mesmerizing creatures of the crater. I especially liked that there were flotation devices and a lifeguard making the rounds to ensure safety.

Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
Very nice crew, and boat was clean, all equipment available. One thing I do recommend is taking dramamine. Our whole family was sick then entire time and did not get to do anything. The trip was a waste. Staff was very accommodating to our sickness.

They were concerned about our safety, which I enjoyed since I'm not the best in the water. The fish were right there. The pulled pork sandwich was amazing.

Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
Outstanding Crew. Through no fault of the crew there was a medical emergency when we were out at molokini. The speed and safety with which they reloaded us to get the injured person back safely to shore was amazing. We had a good amount of time in the water before we had to head back and were still offered a full refund or rebooking. Above and beyond.

Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
The staff was very friendly, helpful, safety conscious and my family really enjoyed the trip. Marsela was a phenomenal snuba instructor for my first time kiddos at age 8 and 11. Very experienced. The food was good and satisfying. Worth the money. The man who we purchase pictures from was very helpful when my videos didn’t upload. He went and made a Zip drive for me and gave me his card for further issues. Very helpful. A great experience.
