Molokini Crater and South Maui Coast Adventure from Kihei
Skip over the waves on a comfortable and speedy military-inspired, eco-friendly raft to the Molokini Crater, where you will snorkel with tropical fish, rays and various other wildlife. As the first boat to arrive at the crater, the waters will be uncrowded. Here, you'll also enjoy a delicious continental breakfast. Water visibility at this prime diving and snorkeling spot often reaches 180 feet (55 meters)! If you need a break, relax on the boat’s comfy pontoons and soak up the sun. After snorkeling in the crater, head to the backside of Molokini Crater, a place many people rarely see, for another snorkeling experience.
On your way to your final snorkeling destination, 'Turtle Town,' hug the Maui coastline and view the island’s most recent lava flow on the way to beautiful La Perouse Bay. The bay is a natural habitat for the Hawaiian spinner dolphin, so keep a look out and get your camera ready!
At 'Turtle Town,' jump in the water and swim with the friendly Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles! After snorkeling with the turtles, refuel with a deli lunch before heading back to Maui.

I cant say enough about how much we enjoyed our snorkeling adventure yesterday. Our guides, Shane and Mike we knowledgeable and very entertaining. Everything ran perfectly on time and we were treated with an outstanding lunch as well. I highly recommend.
We had a fantastic experience on this tour! The guides were great, food was good and they took us to some unforgettable spots.
We had a wonderful snorkeling trip with guides, Chase and Katie. They took us to four snorkeling spots where we saw plenty of fish, eels, spinner dolphins (from the boat), green sea turtles, and were lucky enough to catch sight of a tiger shark (shark was viewed from the safety of the boat). Chase and Katie were fabulous guides and did a wonderful job keeping the group safe and comfortable.
Almost everything was perfect with this trip; the only thing that wasn't was no fault of theirs. Kelly and Jonathan, our guides, were great- right as we pulled away from the docks, they spotted a rare monk seal and motored over to it so we could catch a glimpse of this rare mammal. The trip to Molokini was fine, but my wife became seasick after she entered the water there to snorkel and had to return to the boat. Jonathan and Kelly were both very sweet in how they handled her and others who became a little queasy. The snorkeling was neat, on both sides of the crater. The trip then took us farther south along the coast, and our guides were very cautious about their speed and the waves, making sure everyone was as comfortable as possible. They shared their knowledge about the best spots along the coast to surf and snorkel and warned us of dangerous spots. Then they spied a school of spinner dolphins and again went out of their way to make sure we got up close and personal with them! (Though we stayed on board ship!) That was awesome of them to extend our trip in such a way. We then went to snorkel with the turtles and were not disappointed there. A hearty lunch was fed to all and we headed back to the dock. All in all, a fine time was had by all. I would return on this trip in a heartbeat! Don't miss out on this fun excursion when in Maui!!
Great Day with knowledgeable guides Tim and Tavi. Tim and Tavi even spotted whales late in the season
Such fun with great guides! Highly recommend! We stopped at 4 different sites and saw turtles, octopus, eel, and variety of fish.
Captain Chase and Zach brought us out for adventure at Molokini then with Sea turtles!From the get go the two were informative and excited to bring us out! Started out inside the Crescent at Molokini...then to the backside. Informative about the history of the area, Chase led us to the most amazing and incredible underwater views imaginable, right in front of our face. Zach, helped all from the beginner to those who had snorkeled before. Pointing out different eels that were hard to see as well as a giant manta ray on the backside of the crater.Off to turtle mansion the waters were rough this day. Capt. Chase had us feeling safe and comfortable as he navigated the waters.Dropped in to see many sea turtles in their natural habitat.I'd definitely do this again.Thank you for the Amazing experience
The guides were amazing! We saw whales, dolphins, beautiful reefs and sea turtles! It was one of my favorite parts of our entire trip to Maui!
Excellent tour! The folks running the tour were so efficient - they had everything in order when we arrived and we headed out promptly. The boat was very comfortable, we were some of the first at the crater, and we saw lots of fish. We then went to the back of the crater for another great experience. It was whale season and we could hear the whales as we snorkeled. Very cool. We hit two more spots and again, lots of fish and turtles. Although it was extremely windy, they guides took us to calmer waters for the latter dives - the one with the turtles was another awesome experience. Food was very good and there was plenty for everybody. They even paused for a little whale watching as there were whales a short distance from the boat on the way out to the crater - they shared more about the whales than the guides on our actual whale-watching tour we took later on our vacation different company.... I definitely recommend this tour!
We had a great time, the crew was excellent.
Amazing snorkeling. Group size was perfect. Stopped at 4 snorkeling sites. Very safety conscious.
