Overview

Snorkeling in Molokini Crater is undeniably one of the best parts about visiting Maui. Here in this crescent, submerged volcano off Maui’s southern coastline, over 250 species of fish inhabit a world-class reef. Experience water so exceptionally clear you can see down 75 feet, and swim with schools of tropical fish while cruising the vibrant reef. You can also just sit and suntan on the deck, with sweeping views of Haleakala set just off the back of the boat.

Maalaea Harbor, Slip #80 (on the "Ocean Side" or the Jetty)

7:00 AM
This activity will end right where it started.
From Maalaea Harbor, board a 55-foot, glass bottom catamaran for a Molokini snorkeling tour, where you’ll enjoy a breakfast of bagels and fruit served with juice and Kona coffee. On the hour long cruise to Molokini Crater, take in the views of Haleakala volcano, and try to identify the four other islands that are scattered across the horizon. You’ll also hear commentary from an onboard naturalist who serves as your guide.

Upon arrival at Molokini Crater, splash into the waters teeming with thousands of fish, and cruise over one of Hawaii’s healthiest coral reefs. With its deep sand channels, shallows sections of reef, and wealth of colorful marine life, Molokini Crater is an exceptional outing for experts and first-timers alike. You can also take a turn on the waterslide.

If you'd like to see the marine life without getting wet, peer through glass on the bottom of the boat, where children and families can watch schools of fish.

Once you've finished snorkeling in Molokini Crater, enjoy a freshly cooked BBQ lunch of chicken breasts, pulled pork, or hot dogs, with a garden burger option for vegetarians. Lunch is accompanied by chips and dessert, and an open bar of beer and wine is served on the cruise back home.

Crew makes you feel very comfortable
Amanda_M
, Jun 2022
Our family had a wonderful experience. Crew makes you very comfortable, everything you need is provided. The day we went out we saw zero turtles but not the crews fault, still so many different fish to see. Breakfast and lunch provided, with free drinks. Personally think those who spent $75 to “scuba” was a waste of money , they did not experience anything you can not see from top snorkeling as the water is that crystal clear.

Excellent snorkeling adventure! Everyone in the family enjoyed this! Clear water, tons of fish! Captain and Staff were awesome hosts and guides. Food and drink was plentiful and decent for boat food. Would highly recommend this group! Tip: go early to snag good parking and a front line spot to get your preferred boat seating.

Aloha, Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you felt safe with our crew members. We try our best to provide as much seating as possible, as we take less passengers on board than what we are actually Coast Guard Certified for. Maui is a very busy island, as I'm sure you noticed with your flight here. We apologize for this and hope that you can understand that we try our best to accommodate our guests as best as possible. Mahalo for joining us, Nikki

The crew was great and knowledgeable. Was not impressed with the tour. Too many people snorkeling in the area, only saw 2 specific types of fish. I signed up with this tour because it boasted more than it actually offered in terms of sea life.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Aloha, Thank you for mentioning our great and knowledgeable crew! Maui is one of the most popular destinations in the US at the moment, and we are very busy! Unfortunately, we are not able to control the other vessels that snorkel the crater as well. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the aspects of the tour that we are able to manage, such as our crew, but unfortunately it is up to Mother Nature on what marine life we are able to see. We hope that you understand we strive to provide you with the best snorkel tour possible! Mahalo, Nikki

Thank you for mentioning our amazing crew! Our boat serves a hot BBQ lunch. In comparison to other tours that only provide sandwiches or hot dogs, we like to think a hot BBQ meal after snorkeling hits the spot! We pride ourselves in providing our guests with a memorable family friendly snorkel tour, and it sounds like you had an enjoyable experience! Thanks for sharing. Mahalo for joining us, Nikki

, May 2022
The sailing was probably the most memorable, as there wasn’t much sea life to see while snorkeling. And it was an extremely windy day, the water was so choppy that many folks couldn’t handle the snorkeling. Even sailing was choppy, a few sick individuals onboard. It doesn’t bother me but did many
