Overview
Many snorkeling and boat trips are extremely overpriced in Hawaii and target tourists who don’t know any better. This Molokini and Turtle Arches snorkeling tour is not only fairly priced to fit any travelers' budget, but it also includes a continental breakfast, large barbecue lunch, unlimited soda and tropical juice, all snorkeling gear, and a beginning snorkeling class conducted by a naturalist. Get the most for your money with this guided tour off Maui's coast.
What to Expect
This Molokini and Turtle Arches tour meets at Maui's Maalaea Harbor. Hop aboard your catamaran for the day and get ready for an adventure on the water. Your boat is stocked with a bar, a water slide, restrooms, showers, and even a snorkeling ramp.

First up on the day’s agenda is breakfast. Enjoy a small breakfast of fruit and pastries as you cruise the waters near Molokini. Your guide tells you about the extinct volcanic crater as you go.

You can also take a short snorkeling lesson from the onboard naturalist before getting into the water. Go toward Turtle Arches reef, and see species of fish and coral. Your guide points out wildlife you may not know about or see otherwise.

After snorkeling, enjoy a barbecue lunch and relax in the sun on the cruise back to the harbor.

Disappointing

Sadly, this trip was a huge disappointment. Pros - boat ride and seeing whales on way to crater. Cons - not many fish, too many people, drinks/food mediocre. Shuttled/floated like cattle. Whale watching excursion and free snorkeling at Black Rock is a better bet. The...More

Great staff but experience was disappointing

We took the 7 am snorkel adventure. The staff was very friendly. Expectations are high given the advertisement, reviews, and price. The breakfast was very limiting. It was 2 small pieces of pineapple and orange, 1 slice of banana bread and a half of sweet...More

Fabulous Tour

Captain Mikey, Josh and Lizzy did an amazing job on our snorkeling tour. We saw sea turtles, whales and really cool fish. It was a great trip for our multi-gen fam trip. They even found my 77 yr old Dad when he swam too far!

Many tours advertise whale watching, but honestly you see them if they're out there. I wouldnt pay for that specifically. There is no whale guarantee.

There was no mention of it, that I recall. You do not set foot on the crater itself, so that shouldn't be an issue or something you will notice. I do not think the reef showed any signs of damage. I wouldn't let this... More
