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.

Sean and Alex were above our expectations!!!! They were very personable and helpful. Sean stopped several times and gave great history and science lessons about Maui and surrounding volcanos. We want to four different dive sites each was amazing.

Small group makes it faster to jump from one spot to the next. You snorkel inside the crater, the back side, and La Perouse bay which is where the sea turtles are. Earlier start means calmer seas, and not having to deal with other group crowds. Ride back was choppy, but was cool with 80s rock music.

The best snorkeling trip I've had! The smaller group made it all more personalized and the boat/raft was a lot of fun.

Seth and Shane were excellent guides and knew what they were doing and where they were going. We had an excellent time snorkeling Molokini Crater and Turtle Town. Everyone was very friendly because Seth and Shane were great at including us all in their communication, and knew a lot about the areas where we traveled. The boat ride was fun and smooth.

This tour was the way to go...Our guides, Tim and Kelly, took great care of our small group. Giving us various history on our way to Molokini. We were also able to snorkel the backside of the crater. On the way to La Perouse Bay to see recent lava flows, some bottle-nose dolphins swam around us. Lots of turtles in turtle town. At no point were we rushed at any of our stops. The tour revolved around us and not the clock! A delicious deli lunch was provided before we headed back to round out the day. This tour is a definite must do!

Best guides: Kiki and Alex. Only 20 people in the boat and you get to snorkel the backside of the crater which was amazing. Saw 10 dolphins at La Perouse bay, and if you're luck, snorkel with them. We swam with 5 sea turtles at turtle cove.
