Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Spend your day in Maui enjoying an up-close encounter with the island’s diverse marine life during this snorkeling adventure to some of the island’s top sites. You’ll stop by Molokini Crater and Turtle Town, allowing you the chance to spot a wealth of tropical fish, rays and Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles.

Check in for your day’s snorkel adventure early in the morning at the Kihei Small Boat Ramp. Skim over the waters near Maui in a speedy, eco-friendly military-inspired raft, heading first to Molokini Crater. This crescent-shaped crater is all that remains of a volcanic eruption millions of years ago. Today it plays host to a wealth of marine life like rays and tropical fish. 

Thanks to your early start time, you’ll likely be the first boat at the site, ensuring an uncrowded snorkeling experience. Enjoy a continental breakfast before jumping into the water. Visibility at this top-notch diving and snorkeling site often exceeds 180 feet (55m), ensuring you clear sight lines all the way to the bottom. If you want to relax, feel free to take a break on the boat’s comfortable pontoons for some sunbathing. Then head to the backside of Molokini Crater, a snorkel site few visitors ever see.

Leave Molokini behind as you head to your next snorkel spot at ‘Turtle Town,’ stopping on the way to see some recent lava flows at La Perouse Bay, a favorite habitat for Hawaiian spinner dolphins. Arrive at your final snorkel site, ‘Turtle Town,’ where you’ll have a chance to swim with the gentle Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles that inhabit the area. When you come back up, dig into a deli lunch before returning back to your departure point in Maui.

Chase and zak made it very personal for each one of us the whole experience was so amazing we had dolphins and whales both appear for us to film. We were only doing snorkeling with them and was so surprised to see these as a bonus . I had grandkids that thought the world of these boys and had to hurry and find face masks to match them for the rest of our trip 🤣 . I strongly suggest u ask for these guides to help with ur adventure if u don’t u will be missing the true meaning of Hawaii , Mahalo

We were running late, and our tour guide called us to make sure we knew where to go and even checked us in over the phone so that we wouldn't miss the boat! The fruit for breakfast was great and the lunch provided was delicious! Our guides were very knowledgeable, fun, and ensured that we were able to see some really beautiful snorkel spots. I'd definitely go again if I ever come back to Maui, and I'd highly recommend it to others!

Lunch with Dolphins in South Maui and seeing the sapphire blue drop off at Molokini Crater were simply incredible. Those two pieces alone were worth what ended up being a very full, beautiful and scenic 5 hour snorkel tour. Shawn and Jonathan were excellent guides with all kinds of interesting knowledge about Maui, the aquatic wildlife and everything in between. They were friendly, approachable and set a great tone for the whole trip. My husband and I greatly appreciated the COVID precautions in place and felt comfortable both on and off the boat. High in value and absolutely worth the price.

This snorkeling tour was so much fun. The guys took us to a few different spots where we saw amazing tropical fish and sea turtles! It was amazing to get within 5 feet of the sea turtles. They were very conscious about safety. The guides were funny! A word of caution: the ride can be a bit bumpy due to the ocean waves and you may get sea sick.

This tour was fantastic. The turtle beach time was something we will remember for the rest of our lives. Giant sea turtles swimming all around us. We saw a huge pod of dolphins and so many fish at the crater and beyond. Highly recommend this tour--the staff were wonderful. So kind and caring and knowledgeable. Book this tour !!
