Any snorkeling boat tour to Molokini leaves from Lahaina?

My family is staying at Lahaina for 4 nights in early June. We wanted to go snorkel at Molokini. Can you recommend a company that launches their boats from Lahaina?

No, because I think it's too much boat time for your money. The only one I'd even consider is Hawaii Ocean Project.

Don't go to Molokini if you want to snorkel. and see fish. It once was great but has become 'over-snorkeled' so you will not see many fish etc.

Book with Gemini or Trilogy, they will take you to wherever is best on the day and you will enjoy the ride just as much as Molokini.

Are you in Lahaina itself or nearb? Note that a large part of West Maui has a Lahaina mailing address but is not in the town itself.

Hi, thank you for your insight. Here is the address of our rental apartment.

46 Hui Drive, Kapalua, Lahaina (Maui, Hawaii), HI 96761.

What's the best spot for snorkeling around there?

Kapalua Bay is very close to you, Honolua Bay isn't far either. Just down the road about 10 minutes is great snorkeling at Kaanapali Beach, by the Kahekili Beach Park.

PS--"Hui Drive" doesn't sound right to me..........the Hui Roads are lettered and called things like Hui Road D, Hui Road F, etc. Hope they are giving you good directions. Most of the Hui Roads are also actually Napili, not Kapalua.

Thank you so much for the information. I have two teenagers. What other activities could you recommend around there for the teens to work off their energy? (hiking, biking, canoeing, etc.)

Surf lessons, maybe? Check out Hang Loose 808, Maui Surfer Girls for ideas.

Kayaking tour with Hawaiian Paddle Sports, perhaps? They do some very near you.

Lots of hiking trails up at Kapalua and of course, over on Haleakala.

Skip biking here-no real easy way to get to the fun bike trails without a full car rack and all.

The beach, the beach, and more "the beach"---they'll get tired fast!
