Best snorkeling ever
Maria_O
, Jun 2021
The crystal clarity at Olowalu was better than a dream. We saw so many different fish as well as a moray eel, turtles, and flying fish. But the most memorable was when the dolphin came to swim under the boat while we were lying on the catamaran’s trampoline.

Fun trip despite not getting to the crater
Omar_E

It was very nice boat ride and the guides Seth and JJ were great. Unfortunately we didn’t get to go to the crater but still got to go to a great snorkeling area. The hotdogs served aboard are not all beef, for those who don’t pork, but still had a nice selection of complementary chips and soda.

It was ok

It was ok. The instructions on where to go were not great. There are so many locations for the store the mention, an address would be helpful. The snorkeling was just ok, I've definitely had better. Not a ton of fish but maybe it was the time of day.

We were disappointed not to go to the Mokolini crater, but was glad to see some fish at the Coral Gardens.

Thank you for your feedback. Coral Gardens is a beautiful location that offers calm waters when Molokini does not. We hope you'll join us again aboard the Malolo snorkeling tour.

Decent but I’ve been to better
JoMama
, Jun 2021
The crew was great. The site they took us to though was just so/so. I’ve snorkeled better locations at hotels before. Also for the kids I think they need to upgrade their equipment to have the filters so water doesn’t come inside the snorkel. My son had to wear an adult mask that didn’t fit his face because they didn’t have good equipment for kids.

Super fun day! Saw many colorful fish. On our way back the staff caught a huge beautiful Ono fish. They are professional and super friendly. The staff provided us with all the snorkeling equipments. They have foam noodles that help support you during snorkeling if wanted. Staff was out there with everone to ensure safety. Taught us signs for help when we are out there. Highly recommend.
