Overview

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.

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Fun trip!

The staff was very friendly and the overall experience was great! My wife gets seasick and the staff gave her a ginger drink to ease her stomach and reassured her throughout the trip. The food was great and the fish were beautiful.

We had never snorkeled before and it was the most memorable experience I’ve ever had. I’m so glad I participated (after initially backing out). The sights under the water were amazing. The staff was so pleasant and accommodating. The lunch was good and the open bar was awesome! Thank you!

The staff was very friendly, helpful, safety conscious and my family really enjoyed the trip. Marsela was a phenomenal snuba instructor for my first time kiddos at age 8 and 11. Very experienced. The food was good and satisfying. Worth the money. The man who we purchase pictures from was very helpful when my videos didn’t upload. He went and made a Zip drive for me and gave me his card for further issues. Very helpful. A great experience.

We had a great time snorkeling and my 11 year old boy loved snuba. Customer service was excellent. Staff on board made the possible and the impossible to make it fun for everyone. I gave it 4 stars because I don't mind paying for a great, safe and fun trip. I just felt it was a bit pricey for what we got (not just this company but all companies that offer this snorkeling trip in Maui). Snorkeling area wasn't as great as expected. My 14 year old was hoping for a bit more. Not sure if it is because this particular company leaves 30 minutes later so by the time we arrive, other boats are already there so we probably did not get to be in an area with a lot of fish? I paid $205 for snorkeling + snuba for my son. It seemed a bit too much since he did not really snorkel...as he did snuba for the most part. Maybe, a snuba price could be offered instead of having to pay separately for snorkeling and snuba?

Aloha, Thank you for your review. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed our customer service and crew. Snuba is offered on our tours as an addon option to those who wish to further their underwater experience. Snuba is ran and managed through a separate company from Maui Classic Charters, which is why it is a separate charge and payable on board during the day of your tour. Thank you again for joining us! Mahalo, Nikki
