COVID-19 Update: With the lifting of the visitor quarantine on October 15 for those with negative tests, many of our activities are operating or will be soon. 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.
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: This cruise is currently operating, with passenger capacity reduced by 50% for the foreseeable future. For the safety of staff and guests, enhanced sanitation measures and onboard best practices to reduce contact and maintain social distancing have also been implemented.
