Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

In our opinion the site is vastly over rated. Yes you do see lots of fish maybe 4-5 different varieties but was expecting much more after reading reviews on here. It is very crowded as boats set their snorkel areas and are bound to get a flipper to the face lol. We were scheduled to go to turtle town second but the ocean didn’t cooperate so we stayed longer at the crater. Main purpose was to see some turtles which didn’t happen.

We snorkeled with Boss Frog's on the Malolo. We had a wonderful experience! For people who have never snorkeled this is a perfect set up. The crew was very helpful and put everyone at ease. Food and beverages were just right. We jumped right off the boat at the crater and saw so many fish! The water was so clear, it was an amazing first time experience. We went to "Turtle Town" in search of sea turtles and were not disappointed. We saw 5 huge sea turtles very close up; it was a once in the lifetime experience. After this experience we felt more comfortable snorkeling on our own later in our vacation.

The guides were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The site was somewhat crowded and the snorkeling was OK, nothing extraordinary. The reefs were very pretty.

While you might find areas that have higher fish counts on Maui, Molokini is such a great spot to snorkel simply because of the water clarity.

Any experience is rated on what you manage to see; and we saw very little for a lot of money. The sidetrip to Turtle Town was even worse. Perhaps we were just unlucky, but it certainly didn’t meet my expectations.

We enjoyed snorkeling here. The water was incredible clear. We saw a lot of fish but not a ton of variety. We went at the very end of March and got to see a mom and baby whale on our way out which made the experience even neater.

If you've done much snorkeling around the world this place is pretty lame by comparison. However it is about all Maui has to offer. There are a few places on the island but this is about the best you're going to find. The problem is it's expensive to get there and sometimes crowded

We have snorkeled around Hawaii a bit and so far our favorite places have been Two Step Beach on Hawaii and Shark's Cove on Oahu. Molokini is pretty and neat to see how it formed. But we definitely didn't see as many creatures as at Two Step or Shark's Cove. I feel like we could have put all that money spent on the tour to do something else.

Ok, so I was totally seasick, BUT this trip was so memorable! The water was crystal clear, the sealife was amazing and the trip out on the catamaran (despite my sea-sickness, it was very choppy that day) was as gorgeous as it gets.

I think Molokini Crater is a little overrated. It's still a cool place to snorkel and see a lot of fish. It was a bit rough when we were out, so got pushed around a lot by the ocean. It was pretty crowded and really cold. We didn't see anything super cool or different from the snorkeling around Maui.
