We were not able to snorkel the crater due to waves and swells. That was very disappointing . The staff was great! The coral gardens were beautiful

The crew made it a fun experience. They were organized, friendly and helpful. The weather at the first stop produced some rough snorkeling conditions. The second stop was had perfect conditions. I would have preferred 2 snorkel periods at the second stop with lunch in between.

Amazing Snorkelling Bonus Tour
CarolAnn_H

The snorkelling was awesome at Molikini crater and then on the way back to the harbour we saw many whales so a whale watching trip was a bonus. One whale was right beside us. Amazing!!!🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

YES! Bonus whale watching aboard the Malolo snorkeling tour! Thank you so much for sharing your experience.

The boat was overbooked....
Dalynn_J

The boat was overbooked. The seating was very packed not enough room for everyone to sit and many stood. The time at molikini was rushed. They said 45 min out there. I was one of the first in and last out and we were not there 45 min. Turtle town was canceled because of low visibility which is understandable but when I called the day before they didn’t mention anything about no turtle town and that they’d canceled it that day. Disappointed in the limited snorkel time and long boat time.

Don’t waste your money

Directions to the meeting location were horrible. Could not find until someone told us how to get there. Too many people packed on a little boat. To make the experience more enjoyable, they really need to stop overbooking the boat. We were under the impression towels were provided. They were not. We had to buy overpriced towels from their shop for over $20 a piece. Because of that, we were in the last group to board the boat. Looking around there were no seats left. We had to sit on a cooler in the back of the boat with a couple of other people. It was incredibly awkward with how tight it was back there with the unknown couple basically in our laps. The bathrooms on the boat were disgusting. Because it was a marine toilet, all toilet paper has to be thrown in the trash. That would be fine if they had a large enough trash can. It was overflowing with poo toilet paper and it was all over the floor and mushy. The ad indicated “fresh water shower” was on the boat, it was actually a garden hose you sprayed yourself off with. Because we sat on the cooler in the back, we were sprayed every time someone used the “shower.” To top it off, it was the worst snorkeling. It may have been the time of the year we went, but there were only a couple varieties of fish and they were unable to take us to the turtle town location due to high tide. Would not recommend, you’re better off renting snorkeling gear and snorkeling off of the beaches. You will see the same thing for a fraction of the cost.

After reading various reviews and talking with people that have lived here for awhile I lowered my expectations. Please understand I have never paid to go snorkeling. This is my 10th snorkeling experience in Hawaii but the first from a boat. The best snorkeling is usually within 100 feet of shore but there is no other way to get to the shores of Molokini. I was pleasantly rewarded with: a fabulous crew, great conditions, smooth ride, very good visibility with plenty of colorful fishes and one swimming eel. BONUS we diverted to Coral Gardens which had better visibility than Turtle Town yesterday. More colorful fishes and much better coral of course. BONUS #2 we still had a little time so the captain took his time searching out whales for us. Was great to see so many off in the distance plus one mama & her baby nearby. Unexpected was the school of flying fish. TIP-I recommend this smaller boat for snorkeling. The Calypso and Quicksilver are bigger and pricier but more bumping into each other in the water.

Total bonus! Thank you so much for recommending the snorkeling tour to Coral Gardens and Molokini aboard the small group tour on Malolo.

Sun, fish and whales

Staff was very good with getting us all the enjoyment. My only complaint is they need to tell the people where to check in at. Not very good instructions. Boss hogs by the shops. Had no idea and walked all over trying to figure out. But was fun seeing the fishes.
