A note about this tour
We have our captain and crew arrived 30-minutes earlier than usual to spray sanitation and disinfectant on the vessel, and wipe down high traffic areas before guests arrive. Masks & Sanitation are available on boat for guests also.


Explore the natural wonders of Molokini Crater, a volcanic islet 3 miles (4.8 km) off the coast of Maui, on this snorkeling tour from Maalaea. Surrounded by clear tropical waters, this extinct cone is home to many species of marine life, such as fish, sea urchins, sharks, manta rays, and coral. Molokini is a marine preserve, meaning nothing can be disturbed, keeping the island and underwater environment pristine. You'll also explore Turtle Town, and admire native birds. Two water slides, a glass bottom viewing room, and a "leap of faith" are also available if you don't want to snorkel or finish early. Breakfast, lunch, snacks, soda, and juice are included.

We went as a group of 6 with kids ages 6, 3, and 9 months and had a blast. The crew was helpful with getting the kids setup to snorkel or float and they made pb&j for an alternative lunch. We were able to do much more than expected and thought the meals were excellent. They look like they've improved greatly in that department based on other reviews we read. Would highly recommend booking this excursion on your trip to Maui.

This tour did not disappoint. Booking was simple and check-in was organized and easy. The crew of the Calypso was wonderful, friendly, and engaged from beginning to end. If you’ve never snorkeled before don’t worry… instructions are detailed and your safety is of the highest priority. The snorkeling at Molokini was beautiful with tons of tropical fish who swim up to you and around you. Also, plenty of sea turtle sightings at “Turtle Town”. Thank you for a memorable excursion. We definitely got the most bang for our buck!

Great crew, and lots of guidance in the water to find cool fish and turtles. Loved molokini crater and jumping/ sliding off the boat after snorkeling.

Awesome experience! Loved the 3 floor catamaran. The breakfast & lunch provided was sufficient. The crew was friendly and helpful. I like that this specific snorkel tour took you to 2 spots (Molokini Crater & Turtle Town). You spent about an hour at each location which was enough time to see the fish/turtles. They had a slide and jumping spot off the boat too if you wanted to participate. Personally I would not recommend this to families with young kids (unless they are very strong swimmers). They did offer float belts and noodles (and of course flippers and snorkels/goggles). It sometimes was a little chaotic in the water with everyone swimming in the same spot. Overall, I enjoyed my adventure with Calypso and fulfilled my bucket list item to see the green sea turtles!!
