What You Can Expect

Small-Group Molokini Snorkel and Green Sea Turtle Adventure from Maui

Molokini Crater

Spend your day in Maui enjoying an up-close encounter with the island’s diverse marine life during this snorkeling adventure to some of the island’s top sites. You’ll stop by Molokini Crater and Turtle Town, allowing you the chance to spot a wealth of tropical fish, rays and Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles.

Check in for your day’s snorkel adventure at 6:30am at the Kihei Small Boat Ramp, departing at 7am. Skim over the waters near Maui in a speedy, eco-friendly military-inspired raft, heading first to Molokini Crater. This crescent-shaped crater is all that remains of a volcanic eruption millions of years ago. Today it plays host to a wealth of marine life like rays and tropical fish. 

Thanks to your early start time, you’ll be the first boat at the site, ensuring an uncrowded snorkeling experience. Enjoy a continental breakfast before jumping into the water. Visibility at this top-notch diving and snorkeling site often exceeds 180 feet (55m), ensuring you clear sight lines all the way to the bottom. If you want to relax, feel free to take a break on the boat’s comfortable pontoons for some sunbathing. Then head to the backside of Molokini Crater, a snorkel site few visitors ever see.

Leave Molokini behind as you head to your next snorkel spot at ‘Turtle Town,’ stopping on the way to see some recent lava flows and at La Perouse Bay, a favorite habitat for Hawaiian spinner dolphins. Arrive at your final snorkel site, ‘Turtle Town,’ where you’ll have a chance to swim with the gentle Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles that inhabit the area. When you come back up, dig into a deli lunch before returning back to your departure point in Maui.

Tim and Kelly were great! They did a great job giving us a mix of info about the islands, wildlife, history, etc. and were generally really friendly. We lucked out and saw several humpback whales less than 50 ft from the boat, including when they swam underneath us. Unfortunately it was a bit windy and not the best snorkeling conditions, but the whales made up for it!

We had the best time. Our two guides never saw this. We ended up snorkeling on top of a whale right off Molokini. The whale made its way under our boat back and forth several times in a playful way. Amazing. We will never forget. This tour is for experienced snorkelers. No help provided to beginners or anyone with concerns about safety in the big ocean!

We had a wonderful time, and were only sad that it had to come to an end. The guides Tim and Chase tailor the experience to your group and make sure it's not the same cookie cutter adventure every time. It also helped that we had a great friendly group. They even included food, worth getting up a little bit early - not too early - and the goal is to allow everyone their own time line and to see what they wanted to see for most, it was the turtles.

One of the highlights of our trip. Sean and Kelly were great and with the small group it was very personal. Lots of information about all the areas we snorkeled. It was a wonderful experience.
