Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
Perfect boat to be on, I was worried due to covid but once we got there and I seen the size compared to the rest of the boats and how big the other crowds were on the other boats I felt so much better. My family had a blast, the crew was very friendly and helpful. Perfect for all ages! My 2.5 year old and the whole family loved our trip. Plus free meal & drinks!

Excellent snorkeling adventure! Everyone in the family enjoyed this! Clear water, tons of fish! Captain and Staff were awesome hosts and guides. Food and drink was plentiful and decent for boat food. Would highly recommend this group! Tip: go early to snag good parking and a front line spot to get your preferred boat seating.

Molokini and Turtle Arches Snorkeling Trip from Ma'alaea Harbor
We had an amazing trip. Captain Bobby and all the crew were super friendly and helpful. We saw some turtles as we were launching and at Molokini we saw dolphins swimming around. Our first snorkel spot was Molokini where we saw so many beautiful fish. Our second snorkel spot was too windy so he had to take us to a different spot. Didn’t get to see turtles but we did see a few octopus. Breakfast pastries were delicious and the bbq lunch was tasty. Thank you for a great time!
