These Molokini Crater tours will take you to an uninhabited islet off the south shore of Maui. It serves as a natural habitat for native marine and sea bird species, making it a popular snorkeling destination.

"Turtle Town' is the nickname of an area on Maui's south shore where turtles often gather to rest and have their shells cleaned by feeder fish. A protected coral reef, this area is another excellent snorkeling spot and one of the best places to swim with sea turtles on Maui.

Change policy, how far in advance should i book this activity.

We recommend booking at least 1-2 weeks in advance. If you have very specific schedule requirements and are not flexible, please book sooner. Last-minute bookings are often possible, but availability is limited.

What is the breakfast and lunch menu?

Continental Breakfast: Fresh Island Fruit, Pastries, Bagels & Cream Cheese, Coffee and Juices. Lunch: Deli-style lunch with a wide assortment of sandwich fixins'!

Will we see whales on this tour?

During the winter and early spring (usually mid December through early April), you'll have a pretty good chance of seeing whales, as Maui is a prime hot spot for whale activity. But don't worry. Your Maui snorkeling experience is still safe, as the whales will be unlikely to approach during snorkeling and pose very little danger to humans.

molokini and turtle arches snorkeling trip

Come aboard as we depart from Ma'alaea Harbor aboard one of our extremely stable, 65 ft., double deck, powered catamarans and head out to our first snorkel site, world-famous Molokini Crater. Maui's iconic crescent-shaped islet is a beautiful reef known for its crystal-clear waters, abundant coral, colorful fish and resting seabirds. A protected marine conservation area, this volcanic crater is only accessible by boat with a certified tour operator. You'll snorkel about an hour at Molokini and then head to your second snorkel site, Turtle Arches, with its underwater lava formations and frequent green sea turtle sightings. Your tour will be led by our certified Marine Naturalists who have a love for our oceans and will educate you about what you'll be witnessing throughout your trip. Your adventure includes a continental breakfast, BBQ lunch, refreshments, 1 complimentary alcoholic drink (beer, wine, tropical well drinks), snorkeling gear, free reef tour by one of our Marine Naturalists, learn-to-snorkel instruction, fish ID class, Junior Naturalist program for kids, and a free wildlife poster from our Ocean Store once you return to the harbor. Moreover, all profits from this and all Eco-tours are used to fund Pacific Whale Foundations' ongoing research, conservation and education programs aimed at protecting our oceans through science and advocacy. If sea conditions make either Molokini or Turtle Arches unsafe, our captains will utilize their experience to select the best possible alternative sites. Sometimes that may mean snorkeling the entire time at Molokini or substituting the Turtle Arches site for another spot know for green sea turtle populations.

Traveler Reviews

We had an excellent snorkeling trip with PacWhale. The crew was very knowledgeable and professional and did a very good job in making sure their guests were happy. Our captain kept us updated along the journey to Molokini and boated by Turtle Arches to check conditions along the way. Unfortunately, conditions weren't good for Turtle Arches on the day we went, so they adjusted our trip to 2 hours of snorkeling at Molokini. Snorkeling at the crater was great - good visibility and lots of fish, urchins, and coral to see. They do limit the area you can explore just to keep the people from their boat close in case of an emergency since there are many other boats sharing the area. There was still a lot to see in our designated area and they had crew members in the water with us acting as lifeguards. They even had a guided snorkel with a crew member that educated snorkelers about the marine life they were seeing. We missed the start of that since we were underwater exploring, but I did swim up on it and heard the crew member pointing out a parrot fish and sharing some info to another snorkeler. The water is cool early in the morning, so definitely opt for the wetsuit rental to keep you warm in the water. Even with it on, we were so cold we needed to get out of the water after about an hour of snorkeling. They had areas on the side of the boat where kids could jump into the water to keep them entertained after they got bored with snorkeling and had boogie boards and a floatable mat for those who prefer some assistance with floatation in the water. Food and drinks were good - they served a continental breakfast on the ride out to Molokini (pastries and fruit) and a hot grilled lunch with 1 alcoholic beverage included after the snorkel. We had the chicken sandwich but they had hot dogs and veggie burgers as well. They also had plenty of extra if people wanted seconds. They served local beers, Mai Tai's, wine, and other cocktails onboard as well as water and soda. Since we had some extra time after everyone was done snorkeling, our captain boated out to where we could see some other ocean life from the boat. We came across several pods of dolphins and saw some whale activity on the ride back. During the ride, several crew members gave some talks about the fish that we had seen in the crater and the whales that we were seeing from the boat. Very interesting and informative! They have a free gift for you back at their store after the trip is completed and they had GoPro's for rent at the beginning of the trip if you wanted to have one for the day. Overall, we had an excellent experience and would highly recommend PacWhale for this and other ocean adventures.

Big boat, a lot of people (not a catamaran as indicated in the description). It was very rah-rah, versus a genuine Hawaiian experience (for example, we were told not to touch the reef or harass the turtles because we’d be fined 10,000$ instead of explaining the impact of what that could do to the environment, why it’s important for the sea turtles or sea life, etc) ..no native Hawaiians on staff. One staffer was supposed to be spraying defogger (baby shampoo) into goggles but instead was spraying a harsh cleaning solution which immediately burned our eyes…when I pointed it out there was never an apology, just an offer that I could wash my face in the bathroom…we also didn’t see any turtles and not many fish. We saw smaller local boats parked in different locations…no staff guided us where to snorkel, instead they sat on surf boards and told us if we were outside of the allowed parameters. the food was really bad…dry chicken, hot dogs or veggie burgers with dry, bland pasta salad and chips ahoy cookies. The drinks were not good either. No upscale bar service here. Will not be taking any more excursions with this company.

The snorkeling at Molokini was good but unfortunately there was very bad visibility at the Turtle Arches and we had to go back to Molokini instead. The only downside is that while we saw some coral and fish, we were hoping to see more. Not sure but I suspect the amount of people/boats (our boat had 100+ people in it, and there were several boats at Molokini) contributed to this. But otherwise, the boat ride, the staff, and the on-board service was very good.

Canceled at the last minute and couldn’t rebook us. Then had the nerve to send an email saying how glad they were to have me as a guest. Telling me their email is bogus as was their service.

This trip was very fun and relaxing. The staff were very kind and very knowledgable. The food was decent too. We went to 2 snorkel spot but unfortunately we didn't see any turtles in Molokini but we understand that the turtles are not on our schedule. However, we did see a bunch of bottleneck dolphins!! Our on way back to the shore, the captain spotted a a few dolphins, so he took the boat closer to them. The dolphins put on a show for us that day! They came super close to the boat, and were riding the waves and jumping out of the water. Such a nice experience. And you can tell the staff cared because they were all soo excited about it too!

We decided to try a new company and sorry we did. From the beginning we were not very pleased with the activity. We have been on numerous excursions on almost every island and ALWAYS provided a towel and the one time the company did not, they noted it very clearly. This one not only did not provide it, but gave no warning and then tries to sell overpriced ones at check in. -2 points. They then say you can’t use certain sunscreen, yes of course not I support this move 100%. BUT- we have never even been on a sunset dinner cruise that didn’t have a pump for everyone to use. They again, tried to upsell. -2points again. The other company we used at the same dock last year and years before typically aid with parking and this did not, no big deal but something to note. There were many other items available for up charge. As you enter the boat you are forced to take a photo whether you want to or not. -2 points again. Now- this is where a majority of the issues occurred. Our day was EXTREMELY windy. We have been on this excursion with other companies and they’ve rescheduled or refunded if weather is bad or conditions unsafe. This one said nope we are going. As we drive off into probably the windiest day I have ever been out to sea in Maui, I could tell they realized their mistake. The captain was impatient and exacerbated with his crew and we could hear the stress in his voice. It also took about 45-55 minutes to anchor (per a time stamp on my phone). Probably not the best day to teach a new person how to swim out to find the anchor point. Goodness. I am very patient but you already have a lot of things going against you. We finally get in and snorkel in an overall unimpressive area for maybe 40 minutes. Back in the boat and that’s it. THATS ALL?!? No Molokini crater, no turtle town. Nothing. I understand it wasn’t safe but THATS WHY YOU RESCHEDULE. We have amazing tools that tell you the sea weather days out. -20 points here. The description literally says they’ll bring you to these locations and you’ll snorkel for a while. No compensation was provided. The positives- the capt was able to get us a view of sea turtles and 3 humpbacks. They were beautiful, just not what we booked for. They did take care of us on the boat. You could tell they were trying to make up for everyone’s disappointment so that was a plus they weren’t ignoring it. As someone who has worked in customer service in many areas, there is a certain way to deliver a message to your guests which could have been provided and more eloquently. Just over all, we felt they kept the excursion for money. This was about $50-75 each more than the ones we’ve done in the past but maybe the worst one. My husband and I joked everything was an up charge- you want to get in water, that’ll be $5, you want to use the restroom, bring your quarters. Of course this is a joke but it’s how we felt. If you know we weren’t going to be safe and able to swim, do the right thing and reschedule. Over all, C- we will stick with the other company.

Absolutely INCREDIBLE trip and experience. What an impeccably organized outfit PACWHALE is - such a joy from start to finish. Exceptional crew, outstanding information about the wildlife we were encountering, laughter, warmth and fantastic service all round. (I highly recommend attending the 'snorkel demo' - even if you have snorkeled many times before - I've been snorkeling for years and learnt something new that meant no leaky/fogged up mask ever again!! Such a simple fix when you learn how...) Thank you so much to Captain Daniel, first mate Meg, and the exceptional crew Amber, Liz, Grace, Lydia and Ella. You made our trip truly outstanding!

Incredibly friendly and knowledgeable staff. One of the best activities my wife and I have done through NCL. Two different snorkeling locations with ample time at each to see a wide variety of marine life. Highly recommended.

This was a very professional tour and highly recommended if you want some information with your activities. We learned about whales, other Maui Nui creatures and land details, had a great smooth boat ride, two meals and snacks, all handled by a great crew. We appreciated all of the descriptions from the naturalists on board and in the water. I’ve done lots of tours like this and the experience was really superior. All in all a bargain price for 5 hours of entertainment.

This was a fantastic 5 hour ocean trip with snorkeling stops in 3 locations. Our outing included a light breakfast and really nice lunch. The crew is exceptional, and what made this stand out is the onboard educational moments provided by the expert crew. Autumn was a very good and interesting speaker. Snorkeling gear was included. We saw sea turtles and numerous fish. Whale watching was an added bonus.

Cruising Sea

Molokini and Turtle Arches Snorkeling – Guaranteed Fun!

molokini and turtle arches snorkeling trip

If you’re planning to go on a holiday to Hawaii this season, then there can be no better way of guaranteeing a fun-filled experience than taking a Molokini and Turtle Arches snorkeling trip.

Endowed with crystal clear waters, abundant marine life, and flourishing corals, these two places provide a safe haven for snorkeling, diving and a host of other water-related activities.

To make your dream come true, all you need to do is get aboard the Ocean Odyssey for an unlimited snorkeling adventure into the waters of Maui .

Table of Contents

What to Expect

To get started on your sea adventure, you’ll need to board the Ocean Odyssey at Ma’alaea Harbor.

The single-deck, smooth riding catamaran is customized with such features as gallery bar, two bathrooms, freshwater shower, water slide and snorkel steps for entering into and out of the water.

It also boasts of a professional crew that will provide you with the company and service you need throughout the trip.

On Board  the Catamaran

While cruising to Molokini and Turtle Arches, the boat crew will delight you with amazing tropical-style continental breakfast featuring pastries, tropical fruits, juices and freshly brewed Maui coffee.

Along the way, you can listen to certified naturalists offer snorkeling classes to beginners as they also talk about the delicate ecology of this part of Hawaii. During winter, you might also be lucky to enjoy sightings of whales gliding through the waters.

Snorkeling Time

A visit to the crescent-shaped Molokini crater presents numerous opportunities for snorkelers and scuba divers alike. This extinct volcanic crater is home to more than 250 species of marine fish and 38 species of corals.

While underwater, you can encounter up close with exotic marine fish and creatures like parrot fish , reef sharks, manta rays, ornate octopus, triggerfish, white spotted puffer, yellow tang, Moorish idol, Achilles tang and more.

That plus the colorful corals make for spectacular underwater scenery whose beauty is hard to beat.

Turtles Arches

Another amazing snorkeling spot in Maui is the Turtles Arches, a dazzling reef sitting off Maui’s South coast. The spot is popular for its underwater larva formations and abundance of green sea turtles.

Here, you can enjoy a free guided reef tour by a naturalist from the crew, who’ll help you learn and appreciate the ecology below the waves. You can also feel free to take photos of the graceful green sea turtles together with the spectacular larva arches, just to document your underwater encounters.

Back On Board

Upon returning aboard the boat, after a rather tiring snorkeling experience, you can warm up the decks as you enjoy barbecue lunch with grilled teriyaki chicken, hot dogs, veggie burgers, potato salad, chocolate chip cookies and more. All these foods are served with perfect dressings and condiments that will make you savor every mouthful.

There’s also plenty of water, juices, and sodas that can go along well with the foods served. And if you are an adult aged 21 years and above with a valid ID, you may be served with complimentary alcoholic beverages like beer, wine and Mai Tais from Maui Brewing Company. You can enjoy other additional alcoholic drinks, blended cocktails, and refills but at a reasonable price.

What Is The Duration Of The Tour?

The tour to Molokini and Turtle Arches is usually scheduled for 5 hours. You can spend nearly half of the time on each of the two snorkeling sites. The check-in time is set at 45 minutes prior to the departure. If you wish to enjoy a more personalized tour (with your desired time), then you can contact the catamaran company to organize for a private charter at a given price.

When Is The Best Time To Do The Tour?

Any time of the day can be a good time to visit Molokini and Turtle Arches. However, it can be fun to go on the tour early in the morning ( the first departure at 7 am) before it gets busy. That way you can enjoy the underwater world while it is in its pristine condition.

Winter can also be the best time of the year to visit Molokini Crater because it’s usually the whale season. During this time, Humpback whales migrate from the North Pacific to Hawaii.

A larger percentage of the whales come specifically to Maui mate and give birth. So this is a perfect time for you to catch the magnificent sightings of the Humpback whales.

What Amenities Are There On Board?

The Ocean Odyssey is the ultimate definition of comfort, luxury, and convenience. Some of the notable amenities you can find on board include warm showers, super water slide, glass bottom viewing window and swim steps. With such great amenities, you can be sure of enjoying a fun-filled experience both on board and in the waters.
