We have listened to our customers who love our standard Molokini & Turtle Arches Snorkel tour program yet want a less crowded atmosphere. Running at half capacity, our new Molokini Deluxe Experience offers customers the stability of our double-deck catamaran with plenty of room to store your stuff and move around the vessel throughout the tour. Moreover, we have added an upgraded menu to include a hot breakfast, snacks and outstanding lunch selection along with complimentary use of wetsuit tops for snorkeling.

The Molokini Deluxe Experience leads you on an exciting exploration of world famous Molokini reef and the unique marine wildlife that inhabits it. This beautiful reef, Maui’s iconic crescent-shaped islet, is known for its’ crystal clear waters, abundant coral, colorful fish, and resting seabirds. A protected marine conservation area, this volcanic crater is only accessible by boat with a certified tour operator.

After enjoying Molokini, we will transport you to a second snorkel site, Turtle Arches, with its underwater lava formations and frequent turtle sightings. A freshly prepared BBQ lunch along with cold beverages and up to 3 complimentary alcoholic drinks (for adults with valid ID) will be waiting for you when you’re done snorkeling.
