What a beautiful world down there!
Jul 2021
What an awesome spot to snorkel! Not a swimmer, I was able to snorkel and see the reef underneath! What a beautiful world down there! I saw so many fish, some bright yellow fish and even a few long yellow fish shaped like eels.

Note: I could feel the waves by the end of the trip. We ended up with some seasickness but it was all worth it.

Molokini Crater Snorkel Day
Jul 2021 • Friends
Took a charter out to Molokini Crater for a 6am snorkel trip. Once we were out there the views were amazing. The water was calm this morning and there were plenty of things to see on the reef areas. We also saw a pod of dolphins swimming by.
Definitely a spot to check out if you like to snorkel or dive. Get there in the early morning though. The place fills up with boats by 8am and then there are large groups of people floating around everywhere.

Beautiful clear water
Jun 2021
Great tour company- Classic charters. We were out early in the morning- saw some nice fish, but thought there would be more. Going to Makena landing was superb with fish and more importantly sea turtles. Would try Lanai for snorkeling next time.

Not as many fish as we were expecting
Jun 2021 • Family
We snorkeled the crater with a tour during the first part of our trip. The weather was beautiful and the water was crystal clear. However there were not as many fish as we were expecting. Due to the fact that many tour boats come here you’re restricted to one section to snorkel in. I have no idea if other areas are better but we were a little underwhelmed with the fish and coral here.
We had a much better time an Honolua Bay and saw tons of fish as well as a greater variety. I’d go back to that bay in a heartbeat.

crystal clear water
May 2021
We went with one of the charter companies to go snorkeling at Molokini. It was one of the best experiences we had in Maui. The water is so clear! We saw hundreds of colorful beautiful fish. The coral was beautiful. We spent a couple of hours there and I could have stayed longer. I will come back here again. It was so much fun!

This crater is NOT worth the visit (time or money).
May 2021
Although our tour guides were great and on-time. This crater is NOT worth the visit (time or money) since we saw minimal fish, minimal coral - You're better off exploring the many snorkeling options the island has to offer. I would not recommend any tours here to anyone.

Most of the people in the boat looked just as disappointed as us and the couple next to us recommended we drive up to the NW shore which was SO much better.

Try to book a tour that goes on the outside rim too
Nov 2020
RedLine Rafting takes you to the interior of the crater which is the inside of the underground volcano (nice calm, shallow, lots to see) AND to the outside which is deep ocean (they call one spot "The Elevator" because of how rough you go up and down in the waves -- I puked at this spot but I LOVED every minute of the trip!!).

Amazingly beautiful spot
Oct 2020 • Couples
We rented a boat to go out to Molokini. The trip out was a little rough(definitely not the Gulf of Mexico) but when we arrived at the crater we were protected. We were all alone in the crater and made our time there even more special. The water was crystal clear, the view better than any picture or video you’ve ever seen. For us renting a boat is the only way to do it. Aloha Outdoors provides a thorough orientation, pre-rental safety brief and on site brief. We had 4 in our party and the boat rental was cheaper than what you’d pay for a guided excursion, we went at our own pace and spent as much time as we chose at the crater.

Snuba here. So many whales on the way!
Mar 2020
This a a great place to Snuba instead of snorkel, because there is a lot more to see closer to the bottom and the best way to get their is to snuba.

This place is a natural wonder and I'm so happy that no one is allowed to build anything here so it can remain a natural wonder.

Also, on the way here we saw an incredible amount of whales, which I also think is a testament to humans not screwing up the area.
