$79.95 BOOK NOW
The Malolo Charters Molokini snorkeling trip is a great trip for those looking for small crowds and a good time. Snorkeling at Molokini and Turtle Town make this charter a value Maui activity package. In the second Maui snorkeling site with the Malolo Charters, the green sea turtles will join you for an unforgettable adventure underwater. Watch them as they glide through the water enjoying their presence; just one of the wonders of the marine eco-systems in Hawaii that you will not soon forget.
The Malolo Charters Molokini snorkel is one of the longest-running Molokini snorkel tours. Malolo takes you three miles off the shores of Maui to an ancient volcanic cinder cone called Molokini. Now a world-class dive location and a Marine Life Conservation District Seabird Sanctuary, Molokini is known for its colorful sea life and clear water. Visibility often exceeds 100 feet.
After Molokini, Malolo Charters heads to Turtle Town providing 2 outstanding Maui snorkeling spots so you can have a day to remember. Most other Molokini snorkel tours opt for Coral Gardens as a second snorkel site. There are no turtles at Coral Gardens, just the same thing you just saw at Molokini. Personally, we love the turtles. It’s a different take on snorkeling when the green sea turtles are part of the picture. They are graceful as they glide through the water and beautiful to look upon. I’m sure that you would enjoy snorkeling with the turtles more than spending another 45 minutes motoring to Coral Gardens to see a reef with some small fish swimming around it. Turtle Town is just 10 minutes from Molokini in Wailea.
Malolo Charters operates a 55-foot power catamaran with a spacious main cabin, 2 restrooms and easy access to the water. There is also plenty of seating on the front of the boat and a net to lay out on for those who want to also catch some rays during the trip.

Super awesome! The captain and crew on the Malolo were great! We would consider ourselves “semi-advanced” snorkelers and my mom and I had a wonderful time. The Molokini crater was a fun change of scenery, a little crowded, but very good visibility and lots of fish. Saw turtles at “turtle town” :) sandwich meats and drinks were delish!
Captain Jordan did a fantastic job making sure our snorkel trip was fun. We got surged out of the crater and turtle town. He took us all the way to Coral Gardens and it was amazing!!! A rare treat according to the crew. They were all fantastic!!! Food was simple and delicious. Well worth the inexpensive price. Mahalo!
Had a great time on our snorkeling trip around the Molokini crater and turtle town. We saw a lot of cool fish and sea turtles The staff was friendly and upbeat. The staff made sure we were all safe throughout. Lunch consisted of deli sandwiches and cookies. They don't provide towels, which would've been helpful if it would've stated that in the booking details.
Great day! Crew was the best. Saw lots of whales and fish. Food and service on the boat is what made this excursion over the top.
Overall it was an ok experience. The boat was cramped and there were 66 people on board a one level boat. They provided breakfast and lunch which were great.
Snorkeling was ok, apparently we couldn’t see the turtles because of the weather so that was fairly disappointing.
On top of that the trip was supposed to be six hours, we didn’t go to turtle town and we got back in about five hours. So for that I’d say we didn’t really get the value of our tickets.
If I return to Maui I may look for another place to go snorkeling, as it seems Molokini crater is packed and not too much fish there.
