Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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 early in the morning at the Kihei Small Boat Ramp. 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 likely 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 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.

Tour guides Ally and Johnny were very kind and considerate of each person's needs as well as knowledgeable about the area and made the trip special through commentary and jokes. Beware seasickness ;P

Best Snorkeling Experience

Hands-down the best snorkeling experience. Zach and Johnathon were terrific. They made it so much fun! We went to four different snorkeling spots and each one phenomenal. There were only 15 people, so Zach and Johnathon really made it a point to get to know each person and chat with them. They gave us breakfast and lunch, which was great. They made sure we had fun, but also kept safety a top priority. I was a little nervous to go snorkeling, but they reassured us and made us all feel safe so that we could have the best time. Already planning our trip back next summer and you better believe it will be with this snorkeling group!

I unfortunately became very sea sick after our first snorkel stop, but they were very accommodating and did what they could to make me comfortable. The rest of my group had an absolute blast! They took us to 4 different spots to snorkel. They taught us a lot throughout the trip, but most importantly they were so fun!

Didnt participate, seasick warning

So i ended up deciding against this tour. The day before I had done a doors off helicopter tour and got violently motion sick. I talked to the captain, who was super nice and the tour looked REALLY fun, but he said basically if i was sick on the helicopter tour it would be 5x worse on this particular boat. Just a warning because if you think you may get ill, you likely will so you may want to play it safe. Sad, this looks really fun
