Seeing all the beauty and colors under water. Coral and colorful fish like out of a book. The boat ride was very interesting and fun with the high winds. The crew was excellent and very helpful. Safety was top priority. Would recommend to everyone. Mahalo.

Our family had a great time on this trip. Friendly and knowledgeable guides, enjoyable lunch after the snorkeling was done, incredible blue water. All our photos looked like we used filters! We would choose this operator again.

Molokini and Turtle Arches Snorkeling Trip from Ma'alaea Harbor
The first place we were going to snorkel at had too strong of a current and so we went to plan B which was ok. We did get to see one turtle there. The snorkeling at Molokini was amazing, however. I’d definitely recommend this to others.

Great time, great crew, very friendly and informative. Really enjoyed the cruise to and from molokini crater, food and laughter with the crew. Only complaint we had is that we departed one half hour after originally scheduled departure time. Other than that, great time.
