Join us for an exhilarating 4 hour Maui Snorkel Tour aboard Reef Explorer, Hawaii’s newest custom built Super Raft.

This smooth, fast and fun ride will take you to snorkel the crystal clear waters of Molokini Crater, and arrive with impressive speed.
Molokini Crater is a crescent-shaped volcanic crater about 3 miles off Maui’s south shore, and is one of Maui’s most unique and beautiful places to snorkel.

Our small group tour stays away from crowds and gives guests a semi private experience. We spend less time traveling to Molokini Crater and more time in the water, exploring the marine life of this natural volcanic wonder.

On this trip we also stop at our favorite Turtle Cove to swim with an abundant population of Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles. This unique cove is known as a turtle cleaning station, and is where this protected species come to have their shells cleaned by Surgeonfish. Our favorite turtle cove is not accessible to large tour boats or catamarans, which allows a completely private experience to swim with these graceful creatures. We often see up to one dozen at a time!

Molokini Crater is a crescent shaped, partially submerged volcanic crater. Home to a lush reef teeming with marine life with over 250 different species of reef fish and hundreds of species of coral, some of which are only found in Hawai’i. Reef sharks and moray eels can also sometimes be seen in the crater.

This world-renowned spot has excellent visibility, with depths ranging from only a foot near the shore to 20-50 feet in most spots, to over 300 feet at its deepest points. It is the remains of one of seven volcanoes that formed the prehistoric Maui Nui island over 230,000 years ago.

There are many Turtle coves in Maui, but we have our favorite. Located just a short 15 minute ride from Molokini Crater, this semi-private pinnacle is known as a turtle cleaning station and is where this protected species come to have their shells “cleaned” by Surgeonfish.

We love to swim with these graceful creatures and observe them glide through the waves and surface for air. A highlight for our guests, we often see up to a dozen or more turtles at one time.
