Good location, deceiving service
Sunil_R
, Nov 2021
Two stars are for the first location (Molokini Crater) which had amazing sea life close to the surface for a food snorkeling experience. If you have non swimmers in the group I would recommend avoiding this experience. There aren’t enough crew members to help out the non swimmers while keeping an eye on everyone else. (They should mention this on the website rather than informing the customers pn the boat) Also, if you are vegetarian, please carry your own food. Vegetarian options provided on the boat are just few tomato slices and lettuce tossed together with some dressing.

Thank you for your feedback. Our boats are equipped with every possible floatation device for beginner snorkelers (noodles, body boards, life jackets) and our crew is trained to keep all passengers accounted for while enjoying snorkeling at Molokini. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the vegetable option and will take your feedback into account.

Just sorta OK

Crew was good but not a lot of passion. Turtles were there but all very small and at the bottom of ocean…don’t pay the money if you think you will be actually swimming with large turtles. Good trip but should only cost about 1/2 the price for the quality.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Turtles come in all sizes and are wild marine life so it is really lucky to see them at all! We are sorry if your expectations were otherwise but appreciate your feedback.

Great trip but a little challenging for beginners

The crew were great, boat was comfortable, good food and drink services. For snorkeling, Molokini is obviously great but not an easy place for beginners due to generally rougher water. Assuming a lot of novice folks, it would be good if there is some extra time for the folks to get used to it - and also if the crew helped passengers checking the snorkel gear on board that will be helpful. Crew does a demo but the first time someone said I am not wearing my mask right was in the middle of the water. Turtle town was more fun and comfortable and we saw some good turtles, fish and coral out there.

Fun trip- would like more protection of the island
Rebecca_B
, Nov 2021
The tour was definitely fun- the ride and the snorkeling were great. Staff were friendly, fun, and experienced. There is a cheap happy hour, $3 per drink, on the ride back, which was nice! Our concerns were that there was no provision or mention of reef safe sunscreen, which is vital to the survival of the ecosystems we were fortunate enough to enjoy. There was also not recycling for the aluminum cans from happy hour. Overall a good experience, but Would appreciate more looking out for this beautiful island and earth!

The crew was fantastic. They were very informative, funny and all around accommodating. First time snorkelers not to worry, they are very comforting. Even got to see a rare out of season Humpback whale.
