Aloha Blue Charters – Hokua Molokini Snorkel
$119.00 BOOK NOW
Enjoy snorkeling on Maui at both the world-famous Molokini Crater and at Turtle Town aboard one of the newest and most exciting charters, the Hokua by Aloha Blue Charters. Both snorkel sites are outstanding, but snorkeling with the green sea turtles is special. Snorkeling Molokini is as magical as snorkeling can be. Molokini is the first stop in the morning. The winds are calm and it’s a smooth ride out to the crater. Once you’re there you will snorkel with over 250 varieties of marine life and perhaps see the monk seal that frequently visits Molokini. The reefs are colorful along the rim and teeming with life. There are several Turtle Towns on Maui. Basically, anywhere the Green Sea Turtles hang out is known as turtle something. This one is off the shores of South Maui in front of the Kealani Hotel. Its several hundred yards offshore, so I wouldn’t try swimming there from the beach. The waters are about 20 feet and there are some reefs, but the turtles are the main attraction.
It’s an option with Aloha Blue Charters. Hokua was the first charter boat on Maui to focus on Snuba Diving. It’s more of a Snuba boat than a snorkel boat. There is an extra fee for Snuba and it should be booked in advance. The US Coast Guard has ruled that for every Snuba tank available on any given boat, they must reduce their guest count by one. The tanks take up space on the boat and the Coast Guard is all about safety. Each charter boat usually has on hand enough tanks for the ones reserved. Makes sense.
Join us today and experience the world-famous Molokini Crater and Turtle Town snorkeling adventure.
An interesting observation about Aloha Blue Charters is that they have, unlike many charter companies have kept their Molokini snorkeling rates low when compared to the competition. This alone has proved to be a success story for the company. It’s a breath of fresh air when you find a Molokini charter boat that relies of customer satisfaction to fill their seats instead of raising rates to meet their budgets. The company’s decision to provide a basic Molokini snorkel trip at an affordable rate goes against the norm for Maui charter boats. By providing the basic amenities and letting Molokini speak for itself, Aloha Blue Charters has developed a following of not only from the visitors but from concierges also.
The Hokua is a 40-foot power catamaran with a jet drive. There are no propellers. The Hokua is 40-foot power catamaran with ultra-quiet Eco-Friendly Jet Drives that was specifically built for Hawaii’s unique waters. She is Coast Guard approved to carry 35 passengers in comfort. Why go snorkeling on “cattle-marans” with up to 149 passengers when you can avoid the crowds with Aloha Blue Charters.

Molokini and Turtle Town as a snorkel destination is at the discretion of the captain. The captain may select another snorkel site during inclement weather.
Sleek, fast and comfortable, the Hokua gets you to Molokini quicker than any other Maui charter boat. And that leaves more time for snorkeling Molokini Crater.
The hallmark of Hokua is that there are only 35 guests aboard the boat. The smaller than average guest count allows for freedom of movement on the boat. Got to like that!
After Molokini Hokua heads over to turtle town where you can snorkel with the green sea turtles. Big, slow-moving and oblivious to what is going on around them, you will have a great time aboard Hokua snorkeling Turtle Town.
