One of the best snorkel spots in the entire state
One of the most famous snorkel spots in Hawaii, the sunken u-shaped volcano crater of Molokini is a marine sanctuary with stunning visibility of up to 180 feet, colorful coral, and plenty of tropical fish. On a half day cruise, you'll stop at Molokini (only accessible by boat) and popular Turtle Arches. You'll have a good chance of seeing large sea turtles, dolphins, whales (in season), underwater lava arches, and varied marine life. The friendly and knowledgeable crew will get you properly fitted with gear (included: premium snorkel gear and flotation devices such as noodles, water belts, and life jackets), educate you about the marine life you’ll be seeing and the local geology, provide snorkel instruction as needed, give a guided reef tour, and give special attention to the younger ones with the Junior Naturalist Program. A free marine wildlife poster per person is also given.
Two different cruises are available, one more beginner and family friendly on a larger boat with many amenities (Option 1) and the other one more adventurous and longer on a smaller boat (Option 2). You can compare both options in this table.
