Maui Molokini Crater Excursion Reviews

Dive beneath Maui's waters to visit Molokini Crater, an underwater volcano that formed over 150 thousand years ago and a marine sanctuary for many unique species of aquatic life.
The local crew worked very hard to make sure we had a good time.
Sail Date: April 2019
The local crew worked very hard to make sure we had a good time. Included breakfast and lunch, as well as all the snorkel gear we needed. Definitely worth the money.

Great snorkel trip! We had a nice calm snorkel experience at Molokini Crater, great for getting used to snorkeling for us beginners. Sailed on to Turtle Town, and the currents were much rougher at that point. We did get to see several turtles up close as we snorkeled. The crew grilled up a nice lunch for us on the boat. I would definitely recommend this excursion. Read Less

In Maui we did the volcano and island tour via Valley Isle Excursions with Jesse (small group 5 stars) We could not do the Road to Hana tour because of the reschedule. Glad we didn't -- didn't sound that great. Sunrise bike ride down the volcano sounded fun but a bit on the extreme -- and a long ride. In hindsight, glad we didn't do it. Read Less

Molokini Crater and Turtle Snorkel, Maui: This was an excellent experience. Took a large catamaran out to the crater, was served a lovely breakfast of fruit and pastry, snorkeled for about an hour and the sea life was amazing! It was a little choppy and getting back onto the boat was challenging. Be patient. On our way to the turtle snorkeling area, we saw a couple turtles in the water. Once in the water to snorkel we saw fish but no turtles. It did not detract from the trip. On the way back, we were served a delicious lunch of grilled chicken, veggie burgers, hot dogs, salads and fruit and cookies. There was alcohol on the catamaran only on the return but we did not partake during this trip. Read Less

Got to see the crater and snorkel in it. We saw whales along the way. On a second stop we saw turtles and rays. A great snorkel trip with the Pacific Whale Foundation. Should have booked directly with them to save a ton of money.
