The Molokini Snorkel Catamaran in Wailea is the only South Maui charter to offer daily departures from Makena/South Maui. From this location, it only takes 20 minutes to sail to Molokini Crater, which means less time on the open water and more time snorkeling.
Snorkel equipment, instruction, and unique menus are included on all tours. We have marine naturalists on-board, so you can learn more about all of the fascinating underwater life you see!
We offer shuttle service from Wailea Resorts to and from our check-in location at Maluaka Beach.
The adventure begins on the beach at Maluaka where you will board the catamaran using the water-stairs that allow you to climb up right from the beach! From there we set sail for Molokini Crater, the top snorkeling destination for visitors to Maui.
With the clearest water in Hawaii and over 250 species of fish, experiencing Molokini’s pristine reef and marine life without the crowds is our privilege due to our exclusive South Maui location.
We time our 65-foot luxury catamaran’s tours to maximize exclusivity whenever we enter the water.
Experience Molokini Crater alone! This Sunrise Deluxe Snorkel is truly the most exclusive and beautiful snorkeling tour on Maui.
It begins with Maui Coffee, Hot Chocolate, fresh warm cinnamon rolls and an epic sunrise. Look for stunning views of Haleakala and the Big Island of Hawaii as the sun rises.
Due to our South Maui location, loading at Maluaka Beach in Makena, Kai Kanani is the first snorkel boat into Molokini in the morning, enjoying 45 minutes of pristine solitude in the clearest water in Hawaii, with up to 200 feet of visibility. Then we head back to Maui and snorkel with the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle at the world-famous Turtle Town of Makena.
The menu is varied with several courses coming out throughout the day. After cinnamon rolls, enjoy yogurt parfait and fresh strawberries. After snorkeling, we bring out the big spread with egg frittatas, ham and cheese breakfast sliders and an open bar with mimosas and bloody marys.
We finish the tour with a leisurely cruise down the Makena Coast, bringing you back to Maluaka Beach with your whole day still ahead of you. It’s the ultimate start to your day in paradise.
The Signature Deluxe Snorkel is our most popular tour, with two snorkeling locations. During this tour we offer snorkeling, first at Molokini Crater, and then again along the Makena Coast at Turtle Town reef.
The tour is in the heart of the day when the Maui sun lights up the colors of the fish and coral below and you can take in the full spectrum of the beauty of Molokini and Turtle Town's incredible reef. During the snorkel it is likely to swim with the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle.
The waters surrounding Maui are very clear, which means that you can see fish up to hundreds of feet away. Molokini and Turtle Town are home to quiet, undisturbed bodies of water. At these tropical coral reefs you can easily see dozens of different types of fish and aquatic life, making it perfect to snorkel at!
During the tour, enjoy a bountiful spread of locally-sourced appetizers throughout the day, such a fresh fruit salad, locally baked muffins, hummus and vegetables, etc. After snorkeling, enjoy an open bar with Kona beers on tap and local spirits. Take in the stunning views of Makena, Haleakala and South Maui on a leisurely cruise to finish up the tour.
Beach-loading off of Maluaka Beach in Makena, we are a 5-10 minute ride from the Wailea resorts.
