It was a good experience. We couldn’t go out to the sunken volcano due to the waves being rough. The crew was great and did a great job. Would go again and hope the water is calmer.

The captain was great and the crew was courteous and attentive to safety. I was disappointed we didn’t go to Molokini crater as it was a beautiful day with little wind. It was economical, but I would recommend paying more for a more comfortable boat, better lunch (we had hot dogs) and a longer snorkeling experience.

We appreciate your feedback. Our crew is awesome and the snorkeling location is always Captain's choice based on current weather conditions.

The crew was very friendly except one young man who was a bit overwhelmed at the end of the trip. The food was also okay, hot dogs and chips. I forgot to tell them I was vegetarian. They did have salad backups for those who don't eat meat. Overall very good. A little crowded, but good.

Fun experience but definitely not one of the best in North America

We expected to go to the Molokini crator, but ended up going to the Coral Gardens. The coral reefs we're very abundant at the Gardens but I can't say the same about the variety of fish. It was only a handful of fish species there, mostly black and colorless with the occasional yellow or blue one. Not very impressive
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Thank you for your review. Snorkeling is not the same every day, fish and marine life move around and the ocean conditions can impact the clarity of the water. We can assure you that there are plenty of bright colored, varied fish species at our snorkeling locations aboard the Malolo!
