Traveler Tips

Pack light, as you have to hold your things on your lap while seated and the boat is in motion.
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).
There was more than enough time for everyone to snorkel; most people came back on the boat early.

Rain couldn’t stop us!
Mark_W, Jan 2023
Pouring rain. Made the most of it. Saw a few whales along the way, highlight was a school of dolphins swimming alongside our boat.
First class experience!
Les_E, Jan 2023
Boat is an amazing ride and gets you to places you want to see quickly. Amazing efficient crew. An added bonus. Saw lots of Whales.
Absolutely LOVED
Katherine_C, Jan 2023
My husband and I had such a great experience /land our guides were incredibly knowledgeable and nice. Had great music, good food, and great company. The cove was an entirely new snorkeling experience and definitely not great for those nervous in a current!
Great day on a smaller boat!
Ann_O, Jan 2023
Guides really kept watching to make sure we saw as much as possible. Loved that it was a smaller group, and they could be flexible to take opportunities as they came. Saw lots of turtles, whales and of course great snorkeling at Molokini.
Too crowded
Sherry_C, Jan 2023
The boat was too full. All 3 of us had to sit in the edge of boat. Not comfortable and I paid the same as everyone sitting in a seat with cup holder. I was very uncomfortable and we were all stepping on each other. Should limit how many come on!
My own personal aquarium
Mark_R, Jan 2023
Snorkeling Molokini is like your own personal aquarium experience. So cool. Would recommend!!!!!!!!!!!
Wonderful Tour
Pat_F, Jan 2023
A fun experience snorkeling. The boat ride to and from stops had amazing views! A wonderful way to spend a morning!
Guaranteed to See Lots of Sea Life
Paula_F, Jan 2023
Super cool experience! We saw sea turtles, whales, a sting ray, and multiple fish at the coral reef at the crater. I would recommend renting the underwater camera. I didn't because I had a waterproof pouch for my phone but once underwater, I couldn't use my phone - the pressure on the screen made the touchscreen go whacky. The water was crystal clear and everything was so beautiful! The snacks o. Board were delicious and the guys were funny! I'd definitely recommend this excursion!
Awesome tour. Would...
Anna_F, Jan 2023
Awesome tour. Would recommend to anyone who is comfortable with water. Snorkeling was amazing. Would come back.
Whales and dolphins topped off the experience—-fantastic!
Marjorie_D, Dec 2022
Whales breached about 8 times, and we were alongside spinner dolphins for awhile. The weather was warm and sunny , just perfect in all.
Fun trip!
Shauna_M, Dec 2022
The experience was exactly as stated. We saw turtles, dolphins and a lot of fish. The water was great. Ryan and Joe were friendly and helpful. It was very enjoyable.
5 stars - highly recommend
Arpit_S, Dec 2022
The experience was truly amazing and so was the crew! Beyond the sea turtle sightings and Molokini snorkelling experience, we also got to see a humpback whale up close! The crew was very experienced and provided interesting information along the way, while providing enough time at the various spots for us to truly soak in the beauty!
Had a great experience...
Diane_I, Dec 2022
Had a great experience and would highly recommend this tour! The guide was awesome and went above and beyond to make our experience memorable!
Best Crew, Best Snorkel, Great Music, Great Sandwiches
Nicolina_S, Dec 2022
This was the most amazing experience I have ever had. We scheduled the Zodiak for a snorkel trip to Molokini and ended up seeing turtles, dolphins, and a whale breach! The guys doing the tour were easily the coolest guys we had ever met. They went above and beyond for all of us. If they saw a whale in the distance they would make sure we all got a chance to see it. Also the music was awesome which was a huge bonus.
Sea turtles, dolphins and whales - oh My!
Michelle_N, Nov 2022
What an awesome adventure! The crew were great and we had a marine biologist crew member. We were able to see 4 sea turtles, an octopus, dolphins and three sets of mom’s and babies of the northern pacific humpback whales. A wonderful trip indeed!
Best snorkel trip ever!!
Mary_H, Nov 2022
The sea and wind were challenging for this snorkel trip HOWEVER our captain and crew pivoted and took us all to a different area to view lava flows and calmer seas. We were able to snorkel there and had a fabulous day! everyone was so friendly, lunch was perfect, music choice was fun, and we had a truly fantastic experience!
Amazing trip
Heidi_B, Nov 2022
The captain and crew were amazing. Felt safe in the water! Saw many turtles! Great lunch! Fun atmosphere!
Must do in Maui
Amy_S, Nov 2022
We had a great time! The crew was wonderful; very attentive, informative and helpful. We saw so many turtles and sea life; visibility was amazing. Circling around the creator was an added bonus. This tour was well worth it; highly recommend!
