Family friendly snorkeling fun
Kim_C

We had an amazing time on the Calypso! The crew was helpful and friendly. They taught us how to use the equipment and made sure everyone’s fit properly. We weren’t able to do the turtle stop because of the conditions in that area but Molokini was beautiful. The kids loved jumping from the boat platform and the slides. They fed us breakfast and lunch. Drinks were great too! Bring your own towels.

Molokini Snorkeling on the Calypso

Wonderful snorkeling in crystal clear water with a wide variety of healthy coral and fish. I snorkeled for 2 straight hours! I was so delighted by the underwater life! Keep looking and swim in different directions near and away and somewhat near the wall and you will see a lot! Boat is immaculate and comfortable. Crew is top-notch.

One of the crew dove down & hit a little star fish to put in my lady’s hand. Nice boat ride, super clear water w/ lots of visibility, plenty of turtles. Worth the $ for sure. Did the early morning one, so still had a lot of day left...

This is a must do!! I went with my four kids ages 8-19 and we had a blast. The boat was comfortable, had everything we needed and offered a great breakfast and lunch. The staff were fun, informative and helped out with anything me and my kids needed. We snorkeled at Molokini and then went to Turtle Town to snorkel again and saw tons of turtles. We even saw a beautiful pod of dolphins that swam in front of us on the way. I highly suggest this trip and thank you to the crew on Calaypso for a fun day!
