Sunday Molokini Crater Snorkel Tour aboard Malolo.

Snorkeling Molokini Crater is on your vacation to-do list, right? Well, we’ve got a Sunday morning trip for you and your family on the Malolo! Getting on the water in the early morning is really great, as Maui’s winds tend to pick up throughout the day.  The ocean is generally calm in the morning. If it is whale season (December – April), you are sure to see humpback whales on the boat ride out!

Molokini Crater is a beautiful volcanic crater rising up out of the water 3 miles off the southwest coast of Maui. There are plenty of fish living in the reef there, because it is a marine life preserve. Birds can also be plentiful, because it’s a bird preserve, as well! Snorkeling the reef is an amazing experience, and you will see all kinds of colorful fish. The fish are more active in the morning and just before sunset, so you’ll be getting in the water at a great time!

On your way out to the Molokini crater, you’ll enjoy an onboard continental breakfast while you explore the double deck catamaran (or simply sit and watch the water go by . . . it’s your vacation, after all!). There are bathrooms aboard the boat. The experienced captain and crew will have all the snorkeling equipment you’ll need, including prescription masks and comfortable flotation devices. If you are a beginning or first time snorkeler, no worries! The Malolo crew will explain things to you before you get in the water to greet the fish.

Once you’ve made some marine memories and climbed back aboard the boat, you’ll find a deli lunch buffet waiting for you! After lunch, it will be time to cruise back to the island of Maui. Not a bad day, huh?

Bring your towels, sunscreen, and camera, and check in at 6:30am at Maalaea Harbor. Parking is plentiful and low cost. You’ll be back around noon, and you’ll have the chance to be in the water for about two hours. If visibility is not good at Molokini, the captain will choose another amazing Maui snorkeling site for you to enjoy.

Have a great time!

    :

    Excellent trip and great value for money. The crew were top notch.

    :

    Poor weather made snorkeling an unattractive option. They did their best to find better and the 2nd site was better than the 1st. But, there was really no strong attempt to find whales or any other sea life. I know it’s a risk with weather anywhere or time, but why does the customer always have to absorb the risk?

    We were disappointed to have spent the money we spent for our family of 5 to snorkel in multiple locations and were unable to due to high winds and water conditions. The water was clearly too rough to be out and it felt like the trip was forced when we should have turned around or not gone out in the first place. The ride back to the marina was extremely rough and very unpleasant. The crew was nice enough and entertaining but in the end, it was not the memorable experience we’d hoped it would be.

    Disappointed that we couldn’t go to Molokini or coral gardens because of the wind. Would have been better to cancel & try another day. The crew & captain were great tho.

    The trip was ok, molokini and turtle town are beautiful. I have been on several of these excursions and I would rate this one at the bottom. The captain was great, but you could tell his crew hated their jobs very sarcastic and only interacted with the passengers when absolutely necessary. Of course until it was time to put out the tip jar, then they started laying on the customer service. Lunch was make your own sandwiches and some pasta coated in mayo. Not good but held us over until we got to shore. This was a budget priced snorkel trip and you get what you pay for but that being said, we had a great time and would do it again.

    It’s a great tour. The only issue was that we didn’t get to Molokini due to the wave condition.

    Great day snorkeling. Coral Gardens (substitute for turtle town) was AWESOME. Crew was friendly and helpful.

    :

    Crew was pleasant and helpful. Lunch was good also. Went to a great alternative snorkel spot instead of turtle town. One improvement would be to have sandwiches available for breakfast also since we didn’t plan for breakfast and the selection was very light.

    Great crew lived the size of passengers did not get to go to turtle place because of weather. It was a great time though and would book again.

    I think tour operators should be honest with the paying customer, and sell these tours with a heads up, that whale activity has been light so far……

    It would have been nice if we were able to go to the second snorkel site…The crew was nice, but thought the price for what we received was a bit too high… cheers, Stru

    Had a great time snorkeling on Malolo! Safety and directions were clear and they took us to 2 great spots where we saw an array of fish at molokini and 3 turtles at turtle town! Staff was friendly and funny. Definitely recommended!

    For the price of the cruise, it was great. The $7.00 for a microwaved hot dog and nothing else was a rip off!
