What You Can Expect

Molokini and Kealewai Snorkel Cruise

Molokini and Kealewai Snorkel Cruise

A half-crescent volcanic caldera located just off the South Maui shoreline, Molokini Crater is world famous for its crystalline waters for diving. Aside from the blue, exceptionally clear waters, what makes snorkeling at Molokini Crater one of the best activities on Maui, is the way the crater shelters the water from wind, current, and waves. Here, over 200 species of tropical fish all flit above fields of coral, with morning hours offering the best conditions for swimming, snorkeling, and diving.

After exiting the water at Molokini Crater, relax on the stable, two deck vessel for the motor to Maui’s shoreline, where the Molokini snorkel cruise continues with a search for wild Hawaiian Green sea turtles. At a protected bay on the Keawalai shoreline, you can either spot the turtles from atop the wraparound upper sun deck, or splash into the turquoise waters for the chance to view them up close.

Once you’ve snorkeled all you can handle, visit the filling, buffet-style lunch that’s served onboard the boat, which is accompanied by beer, wine, soda, and the infamous P.K. rum punch (open bar). A continental breakfast is also served during the morning of this Molokini snorkel cruise, and don’t forget to pack the towels and bring your reef safe sunscreen.

We booked 5 excursions and this was the best one! Well organized and tons of fun! They catered to the novice as well as the experienced! Breakfast and the BBQ lunch was delicious. We saw fish, eels and an octopus at Molokini, swam with turtles at the 2nd location and sipped Mai Tai's!!! A++

Amazing experience, great location for snorkelling. Thoroughly recommend the use of rash vests to avoid sunburn well worth the small amount of money. The crew were friendly and helpful.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2011

This Cruise was great, the crew was friendly, the snorkeling equipment was good, and the food was very good. We saw more Whales on this cruise than other people in our travel group saw on the whale watching tour. The snorkeling was great, it is hard to discribe how beautiful the fish and coral was.

Abosultely amazing! It was too windy to go to Molokini itself, but the captain took up to two spots with beautiful Coral Gardens and Turtles! The staff was very helpful and friendly and the views were gorgeous. I advise to rent the digital camera with flash onboard the ship, as it gave us wonderful memories we will cherish forever!
