Calypso Maui – Molokini and Turtle Town Snorkel
$144.27 BOOK NOW
The Calypso Maui is the culmination of over 30 years of experience and research about Molokini snorkeling trips. The owners of the famous Quicksilver just finished construction of this monumental vessel that has been painstakingly considered to give you the ultimate Molokini snorkeling experience. Many of our clients are calling the Calypso Maui a “Floating Waterpark” with its waterslides and glass-bottom viewing room with 4 big glass panels. That’s right, it’s a glass bottom room that will immerse you in the ocean without getting wet! A great feature for those who aren’t interested in getting into the ocean. Most of the Molokini snorkel boats have one deck, a few have double decks, but only one has three decks! Taking the same number of passengers as the double deck boats means that the extra space is for you and your crew to relax and spread out in on your cruise. To say this vessel is large and stable is an understatement. It is the biggest boat moored on Maui and has room for your whole family, including distant relatives!
The Calypso Maui departs Ma’alaea Harbor early in the morning to take advantage of the calm waters and epic snorkeling conditions that exist only in the mornings. The crew will start you off with a hearty spread for breakfast that includes fresh fruit, fresh cinnamon rolls and other pastries, coffee, juice, and more!
Molokini Crater is one of the coolest places you’ll see in the Hawaiian archipelago. This incredible site is home to several fish species and a variety of coral! Molokini Crater itself is classified as a bird preserve and in the water as Marine Life Conservation District. Fishing is illegal, making the schools of fish huge and ready for you to enjoy watching underwater. Water visibility at Molokini typically exceeds 150 feet. With your snorkel, mask, and fins you’ll be able to swim around and enjoy the colorful and relaxing underwater scenery. Every safety concern has been taken into consideration and you can relax knowing that the captain and crew of the Calypso Maui undergo extensive training and are prepared for every possible contingency. Safety equipment such as floatation devices are readily accessible and the boat regularly receives an inspection by the United States Coast Guard.
In a major development, this boat has created is the ease of access to the water. Calypso has extra wide stairs that lower completely into the water, no need to hobble into the ocean, you can glide right in off the stairs. However, for you thrill seekers, there are multiple water slides and a special platform for making the big leap into the water! We love it, it really is an awesome way to spend a morning of your vacation.
Your second snorkel site will have you swimming with the turtles at Turtle Town! It is many of our clients’ favorite snorkeling site because of the chance to see these beautiful green sea turtles. We also regularly see Hawaiian spinner dolphins in the are too! Lunch is served at the second snorkel site and will delight your palate with a full BBQ buffet, don’t worry vegetarians, we’ve got you covered as well with many vegetarian options.

We rented two sets of snorkel gear, both of our flippers were sized way too small. I wear size 11 and they gave me 8/9 flippers and my wife wears size 7 and they gave her 4/5. We both had questioned because they felt too tight. We both swam in high school and felt they would be too tight but they refused to give us the larger size. We ended up wearing them once and didn’t use the flippers the rest of the week due to bruising on our feet. Staff should be much more knowledgeable if they are sending out multiple sets a day. When returning the gear we told them about the flippers, staff said she would let the worker sizing us know that they were too small, but could not help any further than that.
I rented and bought some snorkel gear from Brad. He was fantastic to work with. I have been here many times and this is the best store on Maui to rent or buy stuff from.
The staff is very friendly. The availability of equipment was awesome. I had an issue with an underwater camera but was contacted by the owner and was offered a refund. This is a very professional business that cares that people are happy. Thank you Boss Frog's, I will be returning!
Centrally located. Decent equipment prices are Competitive. Friendly and Knowledgeable staff.
I would give 0 stars if I could. The employee asked if my husband and I were fluent. He is fluent, I am upper intermediate... They told us we had to pay more than twice the price for the tour because we were not English speakers... Stay away from here.
