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.

What To Expect

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.

This is a very minor thing so don't let it prevent you from going.
It is not intense at all, so for more experienced snorkelers or those looking for something a little more advanced, then this may not be the best fit.

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.

Evva_B, Jun 2022
They had lots of people working so felt safer. The boat was very crowded as far as getting good seats
Response from Host, Jun 2022
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

Michele_R, May 2022
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.
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
First time in Maui

Veena_D, May 2022
It was great to visit Molokini! The boat ride there and back and the crew were great! The water was a little rough the day we went so it was difficult to snorkel and cold but it was a good experience overall.
Response from Host, May 2022

Marcus_F, May 2022
The food was o.k. The staff was amazing and very helpful. Water was amazing and the snorkeling was awesome!
Response from Host, May 2022
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

The sailing was probably...
Wendy_M, 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
Response from Host, May 2022
Mahalo for joining us!
Good hospitality but worst Lunch for veggies!!
NagaAvinash_C, May 2022
Staff did great in supporting beginners but boat is over crowded, hard to find place to sit. Lunch for vegetarians is horrible. It's more like eating grass.
Response from Host, May 2022
Aloha, Thank you for joining us on the Four Winds II. We love having beginners on our boat and getting the opportunity to show them how amazing snorkeling is. Thank you for also mentioning our staff! As far as vegetarian options, we have tropical fruit and muffins for breakfast and we offer vegan burgers with all the fixings on the side for lunch. I am a bit confused by the "eating grass" comment, if you wouldn't mind letting us know what you are referring to? We have been told the vegan burgers are quite delicious! We would love to know what your expectations were for our vegetarian lunch. Mahalo, Nikki
Fantastic Crew & Snorkel trip to Molokini
Nina_Q, Apr 2022
This was a FANTASTIC day trip! The boat was clean and well cared for. The Captain and crew were professional, knowledgeable, and fun! I was so happy that we made a little detour to Molokini to pick up a floating mylar balloon in the ocean. 5 STARS FOR THAT!!!! The food was pretty good as well. We had the pulled pork and grilled chicken sandwiches with chips and drinks. We didn't Snuba, but I did get a photo of the group underwater and they seemed to have a great time! The photographer was great and I loved that they had cameras or GoPro's to rent. Overall a great experience and we'd do it again!! Mahalo!
Response from Host, May 2022
Mahalo for choosing our vessel to adventure with! We are thrilled to hear you had a great snorkel experience with the Four Winds II! Aloha, Nikki
