During the winter months, Molokini also offers some incredible whale watching in Maui as well! If a visit to Molokini wasn't enough, you will also head to Turtle Town, where dozens of Green Sea Turtles like to rest and relax after a long day of swimming. Colorful fish and unique lava formations create the perfect back drop to capture the turtles’ grace as they glide through the water.

What is Molokini?

The Molokini Crater is a partially submerged volcanic crater located off of the southern coast of Maui in the ʻAlalākeiki Channel between Maui and Kahoʻolawe. Created millions and millions of years ago, this crater spans approximately 1/2 mile in diameter, but only 161 feet at its highest tip. The crescent shape of this islet is what makes it such a popular destination for snorkelers and divers alike, since it protects the underwater enthusiasts from the hard currents and waves of the channel.

Molokini is now home to around 260 marine species, including the black triggerfish, yellow tang, Moorish idol, parrotfish, raccoon butterflyfish and bluefin trevally. With so many visitors arriving to the crater each day, many of the fish have become quite comfortable around divers and snorkelers alike. With so many creatures, coral and wildlife, it is no wonder that it has been one of the top 100 diving destinations by a number of scuba diving magazines and websites.

What is snuba?
  • Snuba is a relatively new technology that is a hybrid between snorkeling and scuba diving. Like snorkeling, you'll be able to dive and swim underwater without training or equipment more complex than a mask and breathing tube. Like scuba, you'll be able to dive down without having to worry about air. Your air tank will instead be floating at the surface, attached to you via a 20-ft breathing hose.
Will we see whales?
  • During the winter and early spring (usually mid December through early April), you'll have a pretty good chance of seeing whales, as Maui is a prime hot spot for whale activity. But don't worry. Your Maui snorkeling experience is still safe, as the whales will be unlikely to approach during snorkeling and pose very little danger to humans.
How far in advance should I book this activity?
  • We recommend booking at least 1-2 weeks in advance. If you have very specific schedule requirements and are not flexible, please book sooner. Last-minute bookings are often possible, but availability is limited.
Do I need to know how to swim to snorkel?
  • There are guests who do not know how to swim. However, several different flotation devices to keep you floating will be provided. The Captain will give you an orientation and there will be a lifeguard in the water and crew standing watch.
What happens if it rains?
  • All tours are weather permitting and it is up to the captain’s discretion to take you where the conditions are the best overall and safe and enjoyable.
Am I better to bring some cash on the boat?
  • There are underwater cameras, souvenir videos, and wetsuit rentals ($10) onboard. Credit cards are not currently accepted. So, a little cash ($20-$40) on-hand would be a good idea.
