1. From Ma'alaea Afternoon Snorkel to Molokini or Coral Gardens

Explore one of Maui’s most impressive sites on this relaxing afternoon catamaran cruise to Molokini Crater or Coral Gardens. Dive into the rich marine biodiversity of the reefs in this partially submerged volcanic crater. Head to the meeting point at Maalaea Harbor for your check-in before boarding the Malalo catamaran. Set sail and admire the beautiful Pacific coastal views as you cruise towards your snorkel site. Stop at the ideal snorkeling location for that day. Have the option to purchase food and drink aboard. Jump into the pleasant water and look for colorful fish like parrot fish, yellow tang, and cornet fish. Keep your eyes peeled for the elusive spotted eagle ray. Feel free to rent wetsuits, digital underwater cameras, and prescription masks on the day of your activity to enhance your aquatic experience. After your unforgettable swim, relax with a drink (available to purchase) on deck as you return to your boarding point.

Snorkeling was amazing! Highly recommend. John was a terrific kayak guide and so knowledgeable about the Maui coast, culture and helped make the experience fantastic. We saw beautiful sea turtles and loads of fish. the coral reefs he brought us to were a quiet place with no other groups or boat activity. The day before we snorkeled off a boat with 50 people and saw little. As long as you can take instruction and are able to paddle with another person (all our boats were 2 people kayaks) Go for it!

I used this app today on the road to Hana in Maui. It was the perfect companion and without it we would have missed a lot of great stops along the way. Highly recommend! Well worth the money!!

We had a blast! The crew was amazing! The water was perfect and the sea life was beautiful. I would hands down snorkel with this company again.

A wonderful trip with an excellent captain and crew on a spacious boat to an exotic location. The coral was spectacular.

Great snorkel trip with plenty of assistance if needed. Crew was friendly and welcoming.
