  • "If you are prone to motion sickness, I recommend taking some Dramamine before leaving (it didn't help me much, but I'm very sensitive)." See review
  • "There was more than enough time for everyone to snorkel; most people came back on the boat early." See review

Phenomenal

I loved swimming with the turtles that were so close if you wanted to you could tough them. We followed the no touch rules. Going to the crater after turtle town was great. Most of the other boats and swimmers left. We had the place to ourselves. Seeing the dolphins put on a show for us was the topping to the best adventure.

Great Experience

Tour was great…we saw many turtles, swam in the clearest water ever at the Molikini Crater where the fish and coral were beautiful. Captain Alex and Estoban were fantastic. They are knowledgeable, helpful (we had a guest that was a first timer, they were very patient in providing her with guidance) and funny. Snorkel gear was perfect, lots of refreshments available and they even served lunch. Would travel with them again.

This a must do tour while you are here. It was more personal than the other snorkeling tours we have seen. Brad and Scott were great and the boat ride was just as fun as the snorkeling!

Unique and pristine

10/10 recommend this snorkel tour. It was intimate and private, much better than a huge snorkel tour so there is less people in the water with you. The captain was amazing and fun and knowledgeable. Please take this trip you won’t regret it!

An Amazing Snorkeling Experience That We Will Never Forget
Mark_I
, Oct 2021
My wife and I visited Maui for our honeymoon and this became one of if not the most memorable part of our trip. The captain and Esteban were very experienced and knowledgeable. They made the trip incredibly fun, informative and very safe. The captain gave my wife and I pointers on the best way to snorkel (since it was our first time) and we swam with no less than 15-20 turtles. The conditions at the crater itself were a bit rough for my taste, but when my courage outweighed my skill and I made an attempt anyway, I was quickly and efficiently assisted by Esteban back to the boat. Lunch and drinks were provided, as well as a history lesson of the crater and surrounding areas. I would highly recommend these guys. We had a blast!

This snorkeling tour was the highlight of our trip!

This was hands down the most amazing snorkeling experience! Brad and Scott are so wonderful! They provided us with an awesome day and lots of laughs. They made sure everyone was comfortable and even when someone had issues in the water they were on top of it. The boat gave such a smooth ride even with the weather being slightly questionable. I would recommend this experience to anyone heading to Maui and when we make it back out we will be going again!

Turtles & Molikini Crater - super great!
SusanJ_Y

The zodiac boat was fun being closer to the water; the crew, Captain Alex & Estebez (sp?) were great! So much fun & knowledgeable and looked out for all of us really well! They anchored over a small reef & we snorkeled with lots of sea turtles - that was awesome! The visibility at the crater was great & saw lots of beautiful fish - the waters were extremely choppy the day we went (10/13) so it was harder to maneuver around. Would highly recommend Maui Reef Adventures w/Alex & Estevez!

Best Snorkeling Day Ever !
Annette_S
, Oct 2021
I’ve been on multiple snorkeling trips, and this one was by far the best!!! Loved the faster boat and loved that they only have a max of 24 passengers. Brad and Scott took great care of us and even though it was crazy windy and choppy waters it was still a pleasurable experience. Definitely will choose them again over other companies.

Definitely not worth the money!

They said we would have an hour to snorkel by the crater however it was really windy and so we only got to snorkel for a little bit maybe 10 minutes before they called us back on the boat. The breakfast was just a half muffin or a granola bar and a mini bottle of water. The lunch was a little wrapped turkey sandwich and small bag of chips. They should have cancelled the trip and refunded us or rescheduled for another day since we couldn’t really snorkel. Not worth the over $630.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Aloha Dawn, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear your experience on our tour did not meet your expectations. We typically only receive 5 star reviews, so I wanted to respond to yours. We regularly check the weather before departure to ensure the best possible conditions for snorkeling, however conditions and currents can quickly change while on the trip, and we must ensure the safety of our guests, and our staff did everything they could to accommodate the changes of the day so that guests could snorkel as much as possible. We also would have done everything we could to try and reschedule your group had we known you were unhappy. Regarding the food, we typically only get rave reviews about our turkey sandwiches which are freshly made each morning with generous amounts of protein and veggies! In the morning we serve muffins, Hawaiian fruit juices, granola bars, and sparkling and still water throughout the trip. The breakfast is meant to be light before swimming. If you would like to discuss more please feel free to reach out to us anytime at 808-244-7333. Warmest Aloha, Maui Reef Adventures

Such a great trip! Alex and Esteban were fantastic. We swam with 7-8 turtles, and saw another 4 or so sleeping under rocks at Turtle Town. Plus the coral at Molokini was fantastic. Highly recommend!
