  • "Food on boat is ok.If the vendor can provide better gear, find a better than this Turtle Town, and make more fun on boat, it will be more attractive." See review
  • "If you are wanting coral reefs, this is not the place to go, but there is a 100% chance you will see turtles at the second stop." See review

Great experience. Worth the cost
, Jan 2021
If your intent is to snorkel, this is probably the least expensive boat you can book online. But its also one of the first to get to Molokini before the crowds set in, and is one for the smaller boats. That means that the catamaran at 50% capacity due to Covid only holds about 25 people snorkeling in the same designated area, as each boat, all line up have a similar designated area in front of their boat. As a result, enough room to snorkel the reef and see lots of fish without feeling crowded. On the way there and back, we also saw lots of whales, some closer up, and Captain Heather is extremely insightful and quite knowledgeable about how whales behave in general. A pleasant surprise as we were not booked on a whale trip. And we got to see a number of turtles at Turtle Town. Very nice experience, quite enjoyable with friendly and knowledgeable captain. Don't bother to spend more if your goal is to simply the reefs of Molokini. Well done, guys!!!
Best sight seeing tour
, Jan 2021
We saw more than expected. The tour was well worth it. Friendly staff. Always asked if we needed anything before asking.
Absolutely best crew and trip!
, Jan 2021
Had an unexpected and awesome whale watching experience even though it was a snorkeling trip. Captain Carlos took a detour just so we could see the whales. It was amazing along with all the crew. Great trip!

Molokini Maui Snorkeling is the best, and the crew is so stoked you had fun. Come back soooooooooon. The Crew.
Great experience
, Jan 2021
The crew was very organized and attentive, always offered food and drinks, and making sure we were comfortable. Because we leave at 6, we got to witness the most beautiful sunrise on the ocean. We also saw whales RIGHT next to us. They just popped up out of no where and one swam under our boat. By far one of the more amazing experiences I’ve ever had, one that I don’t think I’ll witness again. Definitely would recommend this trip to anyone looking for a comfortable, organized sunrise snorkel experience. If going in the winter, you will also get some whale watching in, because they stop when they see something spectacular. Overall, I’m very pleased with this tour.

From start to finish we had an awesome time. The crew was hilarious, friendly and professional. We have never seen or heard so much wildlife in one span of time then we did on this trip. We recommend this boat, crew and trip to anyone.

Memorable Sunrise Snorkeling Trip
, Jan 2021
We had an amazing morning snorkeling with Malolo. The crew was extremely friendly and worked to ensure we had the best experience.
Excellent snorkeling, wonderful crew, perfect day!
, Jan 2021
My family and I had an amazing time on this snorkeling trip. Starting with a nice boxed continental breakfast (COVID friendly service) while whale watching, wonderful crew they was entertaining, helpful and knowledgeable, and excellent snorkeling! We saw many varieties of fish at Molokini, the water was perfect and we even saw a monk seal! Turtle town was so fun, tons of turtles and they came right up and swam next to us. Their photographer gets really great photos of you in the water, fun keepsakes if you’re wanting to purchase those. Boxed lunch was great, and the bar offered $2 cocktails. We saw several whales, and although this wasn’t the whale watching tour they stopped and let us all watch and educated everyone about whales. I highly recommend this tour, it was reasonably priced for a half day of fun and you definitely get your money’s worth from this activity.

Great snorkeling. Great service. The family enjoyed the entire experience. Thanks to your team for a memorable day.

Disappointing scheduling issue
, Jan 2021
We were unable to go because of a schedule problem. We are traveling with our son and his family who were scheduled on the same excursion and time. They moved their time to a later trip, but not ours. We assumed ours was moved too, but it wasn’t. The provider claimed they did not know the reservations were supposed to be together and so we were separated. Not knowing this we missed our scheduled trip and were not able to go with our family. We do not know why they moved our son’s reservation nor do we know how to tie two reservations together that are made separately for payment reasons. No refund was offered, as the provider claimed it was our fault for missing our trip, and they did not know the two reservations were supposed to be linked.
