Great afternoon snorkel option

We needed an afternoon snorkel since we had plans in the morning and this was a perfect trip for our group. Crew was professional but fun and showed us a great time. We unfortunately could not go to Molokini Crater due to wind conditions but am not going to hold that against them, I was surprised to get to go out on the boat at all with how windy it was. $3 happy hour was a nice bonus too!

We were disappointed that we did not go to Molokini, winds were too high. We went to a cliff protected area off of Maui. We have seen more fish from the beaches. Crew was friendly and helpful.

Great crew on the boat made the experience fun and easy even for 2 in our party who had never snorkeled before. Due to weather we did not go out to the malaki crater, so a little disappointed with the amount and variety of fish we saw.

The clear and beautiful water. Colorful fishes and warm and friendly boat crew. The only thing we would change is the lunch option.

The captain and crew made a memorable experience for my husband and I. It was his first time on a boat out to go snorkeling and the whole crew made us feel so welcome, the entire time. They took us to a nice point to hang out and snorkel. We didn’t get to go to Molokini Crater due to weather. I’m glad the captain and crew make the most of our trip by choosing other areas to snorkel instead of cancelling the trip. Thanks for the hospitality, we will be back again!

Please do come back again for another snorkeling adventure aboard the Malolo boat tour.

Great time, great crew! Will return and recommend to others. The only thing I was disappointed about was……per the brochure on line it did advertise an island and I booked myself and family thinking that’s where we were going to snorkel; other than that, it was great.

The coral was awesome to see. The crew were friendly. Many different fish. Just the right amount of time. The weather was a little windy. We were disappointed that we were not able to go to the crater

The crew was fun and definitely made us feel safe. If you are looking for a laid back relaxing snorkel trip this is definitely the one for you. Having a boiled hot dog lunch is perfectly okay just maybe a little better quality hot dog would be nice. But the cocktails were amazing!

Amazing cocktails and company! Thank you for joining us aboard the Malolo for a small group Molokini snorkeling tour.
