  • "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

Perfect snorkel trip
Stefanie_D

It was a unforgetable, great tour! At the first stop were so many turtles and it was an amazing adventure to swim and snorkel with them. The Molokini crater was a beautiful snorkel spot with unbelieveable blue and clear water! The crew on Board was very friendly and helpful! There was everything we needed on Board (snacks, drinks, music, restrooms)! We had a really good time and could definitely recommend this tour!

Crystal clear water.

My 18 and 13 year old granddaughters and I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure. The snorkeling gear was great and the water crystal clear. There was no current or swell in the crater and it was teeming with colorful fish. We also enjoyed the location where there are turtles. It took us a while to encounter one swimming but it was an incredible feeling to be close to this ungainly yet graceful animal. Suggestions are to arrive early. Parking is limited and several fishing excursions use this harbor, so lots of people are looking for parking. Several people were already aboard when we arrived at 7:15 and I was pleased to have a seat and not have to sit on the uncomfortable sides. The people sitting there got very wet on the return trip. The captain had some interesting commentary about Molokini and the greenback turtle, but as he did not use a microphone it was difficult to hear him.

Fun Times With a Personal Touch

We had such a great time with this trip. The crew was so funny and helpful and seemed to really enjoy themselves hanging with our group. There was a couple that were on our trip that didn’t know how to swim and were terrified of the water (why, you ask? Yes, I was wondering too). This crew was so patient and worked 1:1 with them to get them comfortable enough to put their faces in the water and actually somewhat snorkel. They get an A+ for attentiveness and big wonderful personalities.

The captain and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We got to see a lot of sea life, except turtles but that was due to bad weather. All in all 10/10

Staff was really flexible finding the combo of gear to make our kids comfortable and safe. We ended up snorkeling two spots at the crater since water conditions were bad at turtle town. It was my first time snorkeling as well and I’m a huge fan!

We went to two locations. The first was near the shore and there were many turtles. It was awesome! The second location was at the crater. This was much fun for me but a little intimidating for my wife. I went close to the crater (3' from small waves crashing on rocks) and I saw a ton of variety of fish. Each stop was about 1 hour long and the staff was awesome. the equipment they give you was good too which made a big difference. GREAT trip!

Rough waters = limited snorkeling
Jason_G
, Jul 2022
I would recommend this trip to others, except during high winds and rough seas. The boat checked all the boxes for the day, but limited snorkeling opportunities since the high winds and rough seas were not the relaxing experience that we were expecting. We were hoping for the opportunity to find calmer waters along the shores for a better snorkeling experience. Crew did a fantastic job taking care of the customers as they were very attentive and professional.

Molokini crater has best snorkeling

The snorkeling was fabulous well worth the trip. The boat captain did his best considering the high winds and choppy seas. Disappointed we only got off the boat once and didn’t see turtle town.

We had a wonderful time! The guides were the best with us 1st timers and we were very comfortable in the water. Will definitely do this again and other tours as well through Viator. Molokini snorkeling led to a memorable tattoo for my husband. His experience will never be forgotten.
