$79.00 BOOK NOW
Think Fun! That is the definition of the Seafire Charters’ Molokini snorkeling trip. Seafire is a hard-bottomed inflatable raft that specializes in small groups. Seafire Charters is also known for its friendly captain and crew as the company is family-owned and operated. They arrive earlier at Molokini, before any other charter boat, giving you time at the crater without any crowds.
Seafire has been operating Molokini snorkel tours for over 30 years. During that time, they have taken thousands of guests to experience the wonders of Molokini Crater. When you snorkel Molokini, you will discover amazing coral reefs teeming with colorful marine life. Your morning snorkeling at Molokini will be entertaining, that’s for sure.
Molokini Crater is designated as a National Marine Reserve. Protected and cherished, Molokini Crater is also a wildlife refuge. While snorkeling at Molokini you will be amazed at the variety of marine life teeming within the crater. Seafire may, if the wind permits, snorkel the back wall of the crater. That is a special treat that the larger catamarans are unable to participate in due to their size and schedule.
Being in a raft is more intimate, less crowded and less prone to motion sickness. They are less prone because they don’t move through the water slowly like a catamaran. They are quick, to the point and provide an adrenaline rush. A Maui rafting adventure doesn’t include all the amenities of a catamaran. There are no restrooms, covered decks or BBQ lunch aboard this vessel. They are a quick, inexpensive and fun trip designed to get the job done in a stealth-like manner. You will save money, time and best of all have a wonderful experience.
Kihei Boat Ramp is the departure point for Seafire Charters Molokini snorkel. Simply put the charter boats that go snorkeling at Molokini from Kihei are all rafts, which means fewer people and a more exciting ride on the boat.
Snorkeling Molokini is a must-do Maui activity for every first-time visitor. Like the thousands before you, you will probably return again and again. Like many, you will be using the Seafire again.

This sea fire charter is amazing. The entire crew were extremely friendly and helpful. Very reasonably priced compared to other local charters. The experience of snorkeling the crater and the turtles was a memory we won’t soon forget! Thank you to that boat crew and staff. I’d highly recommend!!
This was the most amazing experience! The captain and his assistant (Kelly?) were awesome. Smaller sized but extremely stable boat for a better, more personal experience. We did three stops, including the back side of the crater, which should not be missed, so glad I jumped in even though several of us were intimidated at first. You could hear whales singing, and on the ride back we were treated to better whale sightings than our whale watch. The crew did a great job explaining what we seeing and pointing out interesting things we came across. Even saw a baby octopus. They give you plenty of time at each stop, it was well worth the reasonable price and the time.
Amazing snorkeling experience! The crew was awesome and so knowledgeable. They got around and talked to everyone which made the smaller group a bonus. We saw an abundance of marine life in two places and then the turtle stop was my favorite! Oh, and the snacks were great!
Fantastic experience. Crew was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the ocean life. Highly recommended!
Great outfitter. The crew was awesome, and it was great being out on the water with a small group. No more than 20 on this unsinkable boat. It was a short trip from Kihei to Molokini Crater, and the snorkelling at the crater was awesome. The water is clear so you can see so many fish at the top of the water and at the bottom among the coral. Because it is a small group, there was no bumping into others. The crew was in the water with us making us feel safe. We snorkelled two spots in the crater, and then on the return we swam with the turtles close to shore. The pineapple, muffins, drinks, etc were perfect. The money was spent on the snorkelling adventure and it was money well spent. We would highly recommend it to others. We did not feel rushed getting on the boat, getting in the water, and getting on board the boat. It was easy entry and exit all the way. Thank you to the crew.
