The Molokini Eco-Express is the most economical, eco-friendly morning cruise to Molokini!
Because this cruise departs at 9 a.m., you get to sleep later (isn’t that what vacations are all about?). You’re back in around 3.5 hours, so you can schedule other activities during your day, to maximize your vacation fun on Maui.
The Molokini Eco-Express departs from conveniently located Ma’alaea Harbor and cruises directly to Molokini Marine Preserve. We provide all the snorkel gear, including sanitized masks and snorkels, fins, swim noodles and other flotation devices. There’s even a “Learn to Snorkel” class for beginners!
You’ll enjoy a relaxed hour or more of snorkeling at Molokini, including a free guided reef tour by our Certified Marine Naturalists, who point out some of Molokini’s most fascinating fish and marine wildlife to you.

Pacific Whale Foundation advocates for the use of protective clothing and reef-safe sunscreen to help protect fragile coral reefs and to promote a healthy ocean environment. We support the statewide ban on sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate and, beginning November 2019, we are moving from encouragement to enforcement and instituting our own ban onboard PWF vessels of sunscreens containing: oxybenzone, octinoxate, avobenzone, avobenzine, homosalate, octisalate, octocrylene, and ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate in order to alleviate any additional stress on coral reefs. When buying sunscreen, it is important to read the ingredient list, as the term “reef safe” is not regulated and can be used as a marketing device. Choose sunscreen that is non-nano zinc oxide based, like those found in our Ocean Store. Mahalo for helping us protect the ocean.
