COVID-19 Update: With the scheduled lifting of the visitor quarantine on October 15 for those with negative tests, some of our activities are operating in October. Please check our booking calendars.
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, large ocean mat, 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 8x10 glossy poster card is also given per person.
NEW SMALLER CRUISE: Starting in November, a new upgraded experience (Deluxe) is also available on some days. It's the same spacious double-decker boat with all its amenities, but this separate cruise has half as many passengers (max of 35, versus 70 for the standard cruise), so more room to safely space out and move about the boat. In addition, the cruise is 30 minutes longer, and it includes an upgraded food menu (full hot breakfast and expanded lunch spread, per FAQ below) and 3 included alcoholic drinks (vs. 1 for standard). Deluxe pricing is $180 per adult, $130 per child, and free for infants.
In addition to the 2 variations of this cruise (standard & deluxe), we also offer a more adventurous Molokini cruise on a smaller boat (max of only 18). This other cruise does have a minimum age of 7 and is not recommended for inexperienced swimmers or snorkelers. You can compare both Molokini cruises here.
COVID-19 UPDATE: For the safety of staff and guests, enhanced sanitation measures and onboard best practices to reduce contact and maintain social distancing have been implemented. In addition, for the foreseeable future, passenger capacity has been reduced by 50% (although it will often be less).
