Overview

Snorkeling in Molokini Crater is undeniably one of the best parts about visiting Maui. Here in this crescent, submerged volcano off Maui’s southern coastline, over 250 species of fish inhabit a world-class reef. Experience water so exceptionally clear you can see down 75 feet, and swim with schools of tropical fish while cruising the vibrant reef. You can also just sit and suntan on the deck, with sweeping views of Haleakala set just off the back of the boat.

Maalaea Harbor, Slip #80 (on the "Ocean Side" or the Jetty)

7:00 AM
This activity will end right where it started.
From Maalaea Harbor, board a 55-foot, glass bottom catamaran for a Molokini snorkeling tour, where you’ll enjoy a breakfast of bagels and fruit served with juice and Kona coffee. On the hour long cruise to Molokini Crater, take in the views of Haleakala volcano, and try to identify the four other islands that are scattered across the horizon. You’ll also hear commentary from an onboard naturalist who serves as your guide.

Upon arrival at Molokini Crater, splash into the waters teeming with thousands of fish, and cruise over one of Hawaii’s healthiest coral reefs. With its deep sand channels, shallows sections of reef, and wealth of colorful marine life, Molokini Crater is an exceptional outing for experts and first-timers alike. You can also take a turn on the waterslide.

If you'd like to see the marine life without getting wet, peer through glass on the bottom of the boat, where children and families can watch schools of fish.

Once you've finished snorkeling in Molokini Crater, enjoy a freshly cooked BBQ lunch of chicken breasts, pulled pork, or hot dogs, with a garden burger option for vegetarians. Lunch is accompanied by chips and dessert, and an open bar of beer and wine is served on the cruise back home.

A little overcrowded, but still had a good time. The crew was friendly. Saw plenty of fish and one small reef shark.

Thank you for choosing the Four Winds II and I'm happy to hear you enjoyed our crew. We take our guests reviews very seriously and strive to provide our customers with the best possible experience. Please let us know if there's anything in regards to your tour that we could have improved on (unfortunately, the spotting of marine life is out of our control). Mahalo!

Great crew, super helpful, great experience totally!

It started off with Harold the photographer helping me to rig up a filter to my non-compliant GoPro, didn't skip a beat and we got it taped up. Then the Snuba instructor was a champ, very informative and helpful throughout. Zay was a total charm at the bar answering tons of questions. Everyone was just 'on', especially considering much of their job is just 'sitting' the guests to make sure everyone is safe and sound. Absolutely great experience totally! - Dave.

It’s a catamaran but the entire trip used the engine for no apparent reason. That made the ride less pleasant. It was also slower than the other boats so they had more time in the water. The food was pretty rough, even considering it was a boat lunch. Cold hot dogs.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Aloha Michael_L, Our vessel, the Four Winds II, is a large 55-foot catamaran. The weather conditions have to be perfect to sail, and even in those circumstances, it would take way too long to only use the sail... which is why we use the motor. We are one of the only snorkel boat excursions on Maui that stays at Molokini Crater the entire duration of the tour. Other tour companies end up snorkeling the crater for a short time and then going to a second stop, which is why we choose to spend our time only at the crater. I hope I was able to shed some light on the topics you touched on and thank you for choosing the Four Winds II. Mahalo, Nikki

The trip was carefully planned. The crew was excellent, fun, very helpful, skilled in snorkeling instruction, and provided safe environment both on the water and aboard. The reef and fish has changed since we were here in 2003. Both breakfast and lunch had plenty of good food. There was an excellent assortment of beverages that were in abondent quantities. The crew seemed to anticipate the things that added to a pleasure of the entire trip no matter where one was. The whole trip was excellent and very enjoyable.

Rosalyn_E

We were looking for a low-key half day activity with option to stay on boat in case our 4-year old was not interested in getting in the water. This worked out so well! She loved the experience. We all jumped in. She was on the board and it was an awesome experience. Great day and super convenient. Thanks to the great crew!
