Yes, swimming with Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles is a highlight for many of our guests and is part of our tour! We snorkel at our favorite Turtle Cove to swim with these graceful animals, and often see up to a dozen at one time. Just remember Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles are a protected species, so no touching is allowed.
This trip is not recommended for elderly or fragile individuals, expecting mothers or children under 4 years of age. The activity requires a moderate excursion level and participants should be in general good health.
Yes, on our Molokini Turtle Town Tour we serve muffins and fresh fruit in the morning and delicious Turkey wrap sandwiches for lunch. Vegetarian and gluten free options available with 48 hours notice. We also serve non-alcoholic beverages (bottled water, sparkling water, soft drinks, Hawaiian juices).
REEF EXPLORER is able to go where other boats simply cannot. This means we stay away from crowds and give our guests much more time in the water to observe marine life and explore Maui’s underwater beauty. 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 are located in Maalaea Harbor and REEF EXPLORER boards from the South Loading Dock, located at the end of the pier next to Calypso.
Public Parking is available in Ma’alaea Harbor and all along the pier, including spots close to the boat. Parking is $0.50/hour. Pay for 5 hours ($2.50). You can pay with cash or credit card.
