Perfect boat & a friendly crew
Perfect boat to be on, I was worried due to covid but once we got there and I seen the size compared to the rest of the boats and how big the other crowds were on the other boats I felt so much better. My family had a blast, the crew was very friendly and helpful. Perfect for all ages! My 2.5 year old and the whole family loved our trip. Plus free meal & drinks!

Whales, fishes, and corals - oh my!

Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
I highly recommend the Four Winds II. The boat is big enough to not make you throw your cookies, but small enough to feel comfortable. The crew were friendly and easy going. Bathrooms were clean. Breakfast and lunch were yummy. Snuba was fun and easy. And the crater has a beautiful reef and amazing visibility. Overall A+ experience!

Snorkel satisfaction

Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
We absolutely loved this excursion! The crew were all fantastic, the food was surprisingly great, the photo package was such a perfect bonus. They have everything perfectly scheduled, from announcements to handing out gear to lunch, and there's plenty of time to snorkel and see the mesmerizing creatures of the crater. I especially liked that there were flotation devices and a lifeguard making the rounds to ensure safety.

Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
Very nice crew, and boat was clean, all equipment available. One thing I do recommend is taking dramamine. Our whole family was sick then entire time and did not get to do anything. The trip was a waste. Staff was very accommodating to our sickness.

Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
The staff were very friendly and made sure we were all taken care of for food and drink. It was a beautiful experience as the Captain took time for us to see whales along the way to Molikini Crater. The marine life was fantastic!

Well managed snorkel adventure
Dinesh_B, Dec. 2021
Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
A pretty well managed tour of the Molokini crater and ever better managed snorkeling session of more than 2 hours. The tour guides were in water and keeping a close eye on folks from the tour and made sure everybody returned back safely. If there was an aspect that can be improved is the management of people taking their first dive-in. The line got super long, and we wasted almost 30 minutes of snorkeling time waiting in the line.

Great crew, super helpful, great experience totally!

Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
It started off with Harold the photographer helping me to rig up a filter to my non-compliant GoPro, didn't skip a beat and we got it taped up. Then the Snuba instructor was a champ, very informative and helpful throughout. Zay was a total charm at the bar answering tons of questions. Everyone was just 'on', especially considering much of their job is just 'sitting' the guests to make sure everyone is safe and sound. Absolutely great experience totally! - Dave.
