Snorkeling in Molokini Crater is undeniably one of the best parts about visiting Maui. Here in this crescent, submerged volcano off Maui’s southern coastline, over 250 species of fish inhabit a world-class reef. Experience water so exceptionally clear you can see down 75 feet, and swim with schools of tropical fish while cruising the vibrant reef. You can also just sit and suntan on the deck, with sweeping views of Haleakala set just off the back of the boat.

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
From Maalaea Harbor, board a 55-foot, glass bottom catamaran for a Molokini snorkeling tour, where you’ll enjoy a breakfast of bagels and fruit served with juice and Kona coffee. On the hour long cruise to Molokini Crater, take in the views of Haleakala volcano, and try to identify the four other islands that are scattered across the horizon. You’ll also hear commentary from an onboard naturalist who serves as your guide.

Upon arrival at Molokini Crater, splash into the waters teeming with thousands of fish, and cruise over one of Hawaii’s healthiest coral reefs. With its deep sand channels, shallows sections of reef, and wealth of colorful marine life, Molokini Crater is an exceptional outing for experts and first-timers alike. You can also take a turn on the waterslide.

If you'd like to see the marine life without getting wet, peer through glass on the bottom of the boat, where children and families can watch schools of fish.

Once you've finished snorkeling in Molokini Crater, enjoy a freshly cooked BBQ lunch of chicken breasts, pulled pork, or hot dogs, with a garden burger option for vegetarians. Lunch is accompanied by chips and dessert, and an open bar of beer and wine is served on the cruise back home.

Perfect!! Highly Recommend!!
, Jan 2021
Perfect! Crew were all friendly, helpful, funny, informative. Whale watching on the way out to Molokini was a bonus. Crew and guests were conscientious about Covid, and the boat is huge with plenty of room for guests to spread out. Boat has a glass bottom area, and a slide. Continental breakfast, delicious hot lunch, and adult beverages after snorkeling is done. Best bang for your buck, highly recommend!!!

Excellent trip
, Dec 2020
Excellent trip, crew, and everything about it. Food was excellent and would pay just for the experience on the boat. The snorkeling was incredible and saw tons of fish, turtle and even a Monk Seal. The way out saw several whales. The staff helped everyone in the water and in the boat, and there was really activities for absolutely everyone at all ages and levels. Definitely worth the money.
Perfect day with lots of whales!
, Dec 2020
Great staff who pampered us and taught us so much about whales! Beautiful day with great food. Will be back next time we have visitors.
Enjoyed and Beautiful Experience at Molokini
, Dec 2020
We went to Molokini crater for snorkeling on Four Winds II, which we booked through Viator. It was such a beautiful experience, with the rising sun on the ocean followed by snorkeling at the crater. The crew was so friendly and very very supportive. We are new to the water, especially me, with no experience even in the swimming pool. They have provided floating boards which let me have my beautiful experience of looking through the ocean. Sylvia and Blake are so supportive, overall it was such a great experience.
All-around a wonderful experience
, Dec 2020
Staff were friendly and helpful making this snorkel trip exciting and a special part of our Maui trip. There are other options which have a shorter ride to the crater. However, the 1-hr boat ride is actually very relaxing and an opportunity to see whales, etc. Our crew took advantage of the whale sighting and even captured it on their cameras. The Molokini Crater was absolutely the best snorkeling we experienced in all of Maui. Highly recommend taking this trip!
, Dec 2020
Do this, you’ll love it. The crew treats you like family and Captain Dan is a blast. The volcano reef is even cooler than you think, it was the highlight of our trip!

Mahalo for your review! I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed your Molokini snorkel tour on the Four Winds. The snorkeling on Maui is absolutely beautiful and I’m so happy you got to experience it. We hope to see you again!
