Molokini Sail and Snorkel Adventure

Snorkeling in Molokini 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. On this Molokini snorkeling tour, 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 a while by lying a towel on the deck—with sweeping views of Haleakala set just off the back of the boat.


  • Molokini morning snorkeling adventure
  • Cruise along the Maui coastline and soak in the picturesque scenery
  • Snorkel and explore the colorful reefs and sea life
  • View the underwater sights from the glass bottom viewing room
  • Enjoy a complimentary breakfast and lunch

What You Can Expect

Molokini Sail and Snorkel Adventure

Glass bottom Viewing Area

From Maalaea Harbor, board a 55-ft, 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, drink in the views of Haleakala volcano as seen from out on the water, and try to identify the four other island that are scattered across the horizon. You’ll also hear talks from an onboard naturalist who serves as an expert guide.

Upon arrival at Molokini Crater, splash into the crystalline waters that teem with thousands of fish, and cruise your way above 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.

Or, to view the marine life without getting wet, view the bottom of Molokini Crater through glass on the bottom of the boat, where children and families can watch schools of fish without even getting their hair wet. If you decide you want to at least cool off after touring the glass bottom boat, take a turn on the waterslide that ends in the turquoise waters.

Once finished snorkeling in Molokini Crater, enjoy a freshly cooked BBQ lunch of chicken breasts, pulled pork, or hot dogs, and there’s even a vegetarian option of filling and tasty garden burgers. Lunch is accompanied by chips and dessert, and an open bar of beer and wine is served on the cruise back home.

absolutely fantastic trip!! The crew was awesome, informative, and funny. Great for all ages!! There were babies, young kids, all the way to grandparents on our trip!! Even if you have someone who is handicapped! they have flotation devices that a person can lay on and look through a viewing window at the fish below. As far as the food went, they even had a vegetarian option!! I would recommend this trip to everyone.

Excellent value and a lot of fun. The captain and crew were unfailingly humorous and helpful and went out of their way to make sure everyone had a good time. Lots of detours to have close encounters with whales.

Captain and crew were very entertaining. We were able to do snuba, a combination of snorkeling and scuba diving. No certification needed and that made the trip better. Weren't able to go to Molikini as the wi do were too strong. The alternative coral reef provided lots of variety in fish to view. I rented an underwater camera, which I was glad I could do. The meal was delicious and I would definitely do this again.
