A Look at your tour

Molokini crater

Molokini crater is an iconic moon-shaped islet with incredibly clear water off of Maui’s Southern coast. With reef visibility of up to 150 feet, the crater is home to over 250 species of fish, sprawling coral reefs, and a diverse selection of marine wildlife, including ulua, manta rays, and monk seals.  Next, our Captain will sail on to your second snorkeling destination of the day (exact location dependent on weather), oftentimes to Turtle Town or even the exciting backside of Molokini Crater.  

NOTE: Occasionally due to unusual weather conditions, snorkeling can be undesirable at Molokini Crater or the South Maui Coast Line. On these days, the Captain will choose the best alternate snorkel location(s).


Your tour starts with a continental breakfast of Mom Coon’s 4th generation cinnamon rolls and chilled tropical fruit, complimented with Kona coffee, hot tea, hot cocoa, or pineapple juice.

For lunch*, enjoy our savory teriyaki grilled chicken, a crunchy tossed green salad with Mom Coon's famous dressing, luau rice and soft Hawaiian sweet rolls. Lunch is always served--no buffet lines or paper plates and plastic silverware aboard our first-class boats!
