When you sign up for adventures with Maui Magic Molokini Snorkel Tour, you’ll be just moments away from encounters with dolphins, sea turtles, and so much more. On their tours, you can explore the top snorkeling spots around Maui and even go out to the Molokini Crater. No matter where you end up, the crew will go all out in providing a five-star experience, easily making it the highlight of your trip to Maui.
Every tour goes out on their 54-foot custom power catamaran, lovingly dubbed the Maui Magic. On this boat, you’ll find all the top amenities, including covered seating, waterslides, and even a barbecue grill. And although it’s built for up to 64 passengers, they keep all tours at 45 or fewer guests for a more comfortable experience for all.
The crew takes guests out on the water twice a day all throughout the week. So, you can sign up for either their morning or afternoon session on your tour date of choice. Just be sure to book your spot early because their tours fill up fast, especially during the peak travel season. You can reserve your place by going to their website or by simply giving them a call at your convenience.
Once you reserve your place, plan to meet the captain at the Maalaea Boat Harbor at the selected time. Wear your swimsuit and a comfortable cover-up plus sunglasses, sunhat, and reef-safe SPF 50+ sunblock. Don’t forget to bring a camera as well, but be sure to put it in a waterproof case before you go. After the captain greets everyone, the crew will help you all board the boat and get acquainted with its layout.
If you go out in the morning, you’ll hop aboard at 6:30 am sharp and get a tropical breakfast to start the day off right. Then, the crew will jet you out to Molokai before the crowds arrive. Your instructor will help you get your snorkel gear on and learn how to use it. Not a strong swimmer? That’s okay. They’ll provide a floatation device as well to help you stay steady in the water. After exploring Molokai, you’ll go to sites along the Maui coast before ending the five-hour trip with a BBQ lunch and drinks.
Afternoon tours are reserved for guests who want to enjoy a private charter experience. You can bring up to 44 other people on your trip, allowing you to go on an adventure to remember alongside all your friends and family. The captain will build out the itinerary based on your preferences, so just let them know what you want to see and do.
On both their regular snorkeling tours and private charters, they offer a chance to upgrade your experience with SNUBA gear. With that move, you can go up to 15 feet deep and see the coral reefs up close. Before you head beneath the surface, you’ll get a mini-lesson on how to use the equipment and signal for support as needed. Unlike scuba diving, you don’t even need any certifications to participate.
-All their tours are weather dependent, so don’t be surprised if they cancel due to rough conditions.
-If you’d like to join a public snorkel tour in a group of 8 to 20, call before booking to find a good spot on the schedule.
-The tours are only available for kids age five and up. If your kids want to do the SNUBA experience, they’ll need to be at least eight years old.
