Pacific Whale Foundation Knows How to Snorkel Molokini

Pacific Whale Foundation offers a unique Molokini snorkeling tour that is more than just another Maui snorkeling trip. It’s also an opportunity to learn about the preservation efforts that are underway to protect the most valuable resource Maui has, its ocean residents. In the island activity business, Pacific Whale Foundation is known as the environmental leaders in the State of Hawaii and are worthy stewards of our reefs, marine life and ocean. Its great for families with children under 12 as we offer 1 child 12 and under free per paying adult.

Molokini Crater is a crescent-shaped volcanic crater that is actually a collapsed caldera. Its unique position in the ocean makes it the perfect short journey by boat as well as a world-class snorkeling destination. The mooring pin for Pacific Whale Foundation to Snorkel Molokini is away from the main body of charter boats that go out every morning to do these snorkel Molokini tours. With over 250 varieties of fish at Molokini Crater inhabiting colorful reefs in crystal clear waters, there really isn’t a better snorkeling destination in Hawaii. Pacific Whale Foundation will provide the snorkeling equipment or you may bring your own. Large power catamarans, such as the one used for this activity, are specially designed for Hawaiian waters and provide great stability.

Breakfast and Lunch are Served

After a full morning of snorkeling at Molokini, Pacific Whale Foundation fires up the BBQ and serves lunch. After lunch, you’ll enjoy the views on your way to the second snorkeling destination as Pacific Whale Foundation motors to Turtle Arches off the coast of Makena. Here you will be able to snorkel with the green sea turtles. To raise awareness for the environment Pacific Whale Foundation includes an informative tour of the reef area with an onboard naturist. The naturist will bring to your attention the sensitivity of the marine issues that are cause for concern not only on Maui but around the world as well. The turtles are so amazing and graceful. Without a care in the world, they swim about with grace and beauty. 

Founded in the 1980’s as a non-profit company by Greg Kaufman as a small business, Pacific Whale Foundation has grown into one of the largest Maui activity providers and a champion for saving our oceans. They also have a great dinner cruise, whale watch, and Lanai Dolphin Snorkel.  Although Pacific Whale Foundation is based on Maui their research efforts have extended to the South Pacific in an attempt to understand the effects that climate change has on the oceans. Pacific Whale Foundation gives back to the community each year with several fundraisers and awareness programs that add to the charm of Maui. By sponsoring these activities, they have created an interest in Maui and the issues that as an Island we face daily. A few of the activities that Pacific Whale Foundation sponsors are a 5K run that is known as “Run for the Whales” and several ocean activities that are a tribute to the Humpback Whale.

We took the snorkeling trip out to Lanai. It was excellent. All of Staff members were very knowledgeable and everyone was very friendly. The current changed while we were out that day and a few of the swimmers needed a bit of extra help to get back to the boat. The situation was handled extremely well. We saw several whales on the ride out to Lanai including one that swam next to the boat for a short time. We also saw a large pod of spinner dolphins which was amazing and the highlight of the trip.

We appreciated that the money goes to a good cause. We definitely saw some whales, although the ship kept a respectful distance.

Communication and customer service was excellent from the all-female crew, as was the lunch they prepared for us on the grill.

They were generous with the breakfast, lunch, snacks, and other amenities. I just wish we didn't have to pay 10$ extra to rent a wetsuit, especially since the drinks were free.

Seems kind of backwards to me. Why not include the wetsuits and then charge for drinks? Maybe they get bigger tips this way? Anyway, small complaint about an otherwise outstanding experience. I would definitely recommend them.

Great experience. We got to see a whale on our trip! I wish they didn't sell those 4Ocean recycled bracelets though. 4Ocean says the proceeds go towards cleaning up plastic from the ocean but they actually rely on the work of unpaid volunteers! DO shop here and go on the tours but DON'T buy the bracelets unless you do some research first.

Great staff. Best time to go is December to Feb. We went in mid Jan. Saw 3 sets of whale breaching mother and cafe! Best to go with these guys as they are non-profit organization to research and protect whales.

Went whale watching, and had an amazing time. Great crew, saw a ton of whales and heard whale sounds via a hydrophone. Did not need binoculars. I would do it again in a second, highly recommended.
