Overview

Snorkeling in Molokini Crater is undeniably one of the best parts about visiting Maui. Here in this crescent, submerged volcano off Maui’s southern coastline, over 250 species of fish inhabit a world-class reef. Experience water so exceptionally clear you can see down 75 feet, and swim with schools of tropical fish while cruising the vibrant reef. You can also just sit and suntan on the deck, with sweeping views of Haleakala set just off the back of the boat.

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
From Maalaea Harbor, board a 55-foot, glass bottom catamaran for a Molokini snorkeling tour, where you’ll enjoy a breakfast of bagels and fruit served with juice and Kona coffee. On the hour long cruise to Molokini Crater, take in the views of Haleakala volcano, and try to identify the four other islands that are scattered across the horizon. You’ll also hear commentary from an onboard naturalist who serves as your guide.

Upon arrival at Molokini Crater, splash into the waters teeming with thousands of fish, and cruise over one of Hawaii’s healthiest coral reefs. With its deep sand channels, shallows sections of reef, and wealth of colorful marine life, Molokini Crater is an exceptional outing for experts and first-timers alike. You can also take a turn on the waterslide.

If you'd like to see the marine life without getting wet, peer through glass on the bottom of the boat, where children and families can watch schools of fish.

Once you've finished snorkeling in Molokini Crater, enjoy a freshly cooked BBQ lunch of chicken breasts, pulled pork, or hot dogs, with a garden burger option for vegetarians. Lunch is accompanied by chips and dessert, and an open bar of beer and wine is served on the cruise back home.

Perfect boat & a friendly crew
Sky_U
, Jan 2022
Perfect boat to be on, I was worried due to covid but once we got there and I seen the size compared to the rest of the boats and how big the other crowds were on the other boats I felt so much better. My family had a blast, the crew was very friendly and helpful. Perfect for all ages! My 2.5 year old and the whole family loved our trip. Plus free meal & drinks!

The staff were very friendly and made sure we were all taken care of for food and drink. It was a beautiful experience as the Captain took time for us to see whales along the way to Molikini Crater. The marine life was fantastic!

Whales, fishes, and corals - oh my!

I highly recommend the Four Winds II. The boat is big enough to not make you throw your cookies, but small enough to feel comfortable. The crew were friendly and easy going. Bathrooms were clean. Breakfast and lunch were yummy. Snuba was fun and easy. And the crater has a beautiful reef and amazing visibility. Overall A+ experience!

Well managed snorkel adventure
Dinesh_B
, Dec 2021
A pretty well managed tour of the Molokini crater and ever better managed snorkeling session of more than 2 hours. The tour guides were in water and keeping a close eye on folks from the tour and made sure everybody returned back safely. If there was an aspect that can be improved is the management of people taking their first dive-in. The line got super long, and we wasted almost 30 minutes of snorkeling time waiting in the line.

Aloha Dinesh_B, Thank you for joining us on the Four Winds. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your tour and our crew members. I'm sorry to hear it took a while for you to get in to the water. We have 3 ladders, 2 open gates, and a slide, all which allow water access. We do this to try and avoid that from ever being an issue. Mahalo again for choosing the Four Winds II! Mahalo, Nikki

A little overcrowded, but still had a good time. The crew was friendly. Saw plenty of fish and one small reef shark.

Thank you for choosing the Four Winds II and I'm happy to hear you enjoyed our crew. We take our guests reviews very seriously and strive to provide our customers with the best possible experience. Please let us know if there's anything in regards to your tour that we could have improved on (unfortunately, the spotting of marine life is out of our control). Mahalo!

Great crew, super helpful, great experience totally!

It started off with Harold the photographer helping me to rig up a filter to my non-compliant GoPro, didn't skip a beat and we got it taped up. Then the Snuba instructor was a champ, very informative and helpful throughout. Zay was a total charm at the bar answering tons of questions. Everyone was just 'on', especially considering much of their job is just 'sitting' the guests to make sure everyone is safe and sound. Absolutely great experience totally! - Dave.

, Nov 2021
It’s a catamaran but the entire trip used the engine for no apparent reason. That made the ride less pleasant. It was also slower than the other boats so they had more time in the water. The food was pretty rough, even considering it was a boat lunch. Cold hot dogs.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Aloha Michael_L, Our vessel, the Four Winds II, is a large 55-foot catamaran. The weather conditions have to be perfect to sail, and even in those circumstances, it would take way too long to only use the sail... which is why we use the motor. We are one of the only snorkel boat excursions on Maui that stays at Molokini Crater the entire duration of the tour. Other tour companies end up snorkeling the crater for a short time and then going to a second stop, which is why we choose to spend our time only at the crater. I hope I was able to shed some light on the topics you touched on and thank you for choosing the Four Winds II. Mahalo, Nikki
