Spend your day in Maui enjoying an up-close encounter with the island’s diverse marine life during this snorkeling adventure to some of the island’s top sites. You’ll stop by Molokini Crater and Turtle Town, allowing you the chance to spot a wealth of tropical fish, rays and Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles.

Check in for your day’s snorkel adventure early in the morning at the Kihei Small Boat Ramp. Skim over the waters near Maui in a speedy, eco-friendly military-inspired raft, heading first to Molokini Crater. This crescent-shaped crater is all that remains of a volcanic eruption millions of years ago. Today it plays host to a wealth of marine life like rays and tropical fish. 

Thanks to your early start time, you’ll likely be the first boat at the site, ensuring an uncrowded snorkeling experience. Enjoy a continental breakfast before jumping into the water. Visibility at this top-notch diving and snorkeling site often exceeds 180 feet (55m), ensuring you clear sight lines all the way to the bottom. If you want to relax, feel free to take a break on the boat’s comfortable pontoons for some sunbathing. Then head to the backside of Molokini Crater, a snorkel site few visitors ever see.

Leave Molokini behind as you head to your next snorkel spot at ‘Turtle Town,’ stopping on the way to see some recent lava flows at La Perouse Bay, a favorite habitat for Hawaiian spinner dolphins. Arrive at your final snorkel site, ‘Turtle Town,’ where you’ll have a chance to swim with the gentle Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles that inhabit the area. When you come back up, dig into a deli lunch before returning back to your departure point in Maui.

Had an awesome trip with Redline Rafting. Jace and Ari were terrific guides and made the ride out to Molokini, La Perouse Bay, and Turtle Town fun and informative. It was nice being part of a smaller group - I never felt crowded and had plenty of space when snorkeling. I definitely recommend going with Redline's smaller, faster vessels than with those bigger boats and groups!

This was honestly one of the best tours I’ve done. The small group was perfect, we had a good amount of time at each spot and saw a manta ray! The turtle stop was amazing, I have never got to be so close to turtles before and the guides were great and knowledgeable. If you get sea sick it might not be for you, but if not, go for it!

Jonathan and Eric were knowledgeable and took good care of us. Terrific time on and under the water! Very professional. Spent extra time showing us some whales and teaching us about them, which they didn’t have to do. Highly recommend!

Great Snorkeling Experience
Hannah_W
, Jan. 2022
Our five hour snorkeling trip was everything we could have asked for. Not only did we snorkel in the most beautiful places, we were able to snorkel with sea turtles and hear the whale song under the water. We had no knowledge of snorkeling equipment or even what to do and left feeling like pros. We felt safe and taken care of and saw more fish and sea life than we ever could have imagined. On top of all that we lucked out and saw so many whales and all the wonderful whale behaviors, the guides knowledge of the island and sea was top notch.

The crew were fun and very knowledgeable. The time on the excursion was well spent with more than enough time to explore each snorkel spot. I appreciated the attention given to safety and advice on the best spots to look for a variety of sea life.

Amazing! Snorkelling in Maui's clear water is like visiting a whole other world. Guides were informative and helpful, providing clean and defogged snorkelling gear. They also tried to help us see whales during the trip and we got really close up to a few of them. All in all absolutely delightful!
