Molokini Snorkeling Tour
Deluxe Turtle Town & Molokini Snorkeling Tour.
The Quicksilver is Maui’s premier Molokini snorkeling tour. A comfortable ride, ease of entry in and out of the water, a continental breakfast, BBQ lunch, an informative and educational island narration, and a professional captain and crew are but a few of the reasons Quicksilver is your only choice for great day out on the water.
Visit Maui’s #1 snorkeling and diving destination Molokini Crater. Located 3 miles off the South shore of Kihei, and rising out of 300 feet of water, this extinct volcanic cone creates a unique experience in and out of the water. Many different species of marine life live within Molokini. Fish, urchins, harmless sharks, manta rays and coral surrounded by crystal clear water all year around make Molokini a must do on your vacation activity list. Molokini is a marine preserve meaning nothing must be disturbed. This keeps Molokini pristine underwater and on the island itself which is a bird sanctuary. If you need additional entertainment after or instead of snorkeling, take advantage of our waterslide. It is so easy to use kids can have a blast all by themselves. If you don’t want to snorkel, take a peek at the reef through our glass-bottom viewing port. To ensure safety we have a lifeguard in the water at all times watching over all our snorkelers and lending any assistance if needed.
After leaving Molokini, our second snorkeling spot of the day Turtle Town, offers a unique experience to swim with the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles. Calm blue water, beautiful coral and turtles make for a really fun and exciting time. After returning to the Quicksilver at Turtle Town you will enjoy our lunch buffet. Barbecued pulled pork and chicken sandwiches, pasta salad, and water front dining highlight this experience. For desert enjoy delicious chocolate chip cookies. After leaving Turtle Town we cruise down the south shore of Maui where our experienced captain gives an informative and historical narration covering celebrity homes, island history and volcanic eruptions. Last but not least, we play Quicksilver trivia where you get a chance to win a free Quicksilver crew t-shirt. Book your Molokini snorkeling tour today. Don’t miss out on this awesome adventure.

Glass Bottom Windows
Quicksilver features 4 glass viewing panels so you can see the marine life right through the bottom of the boat. This is a great option for non-snorkelers to take a peek at the reef. On rare occasions whales have been seen swimming under the boat on our whale watch tours.
Need a quick way into the water? Do your kids need entertainment? Look no further than the Quicksilver's waterslide. It is located on the back of the boat next to our easy staircase into and out of the water so you and your kids can go around and around, down the slide and up the stairs, repeat to infinity and beyond!
Safety is always a priority. Quicksilver is a United States Coast Guard certified passenger vessel. We abide by all their applicable rules and regulations. We carry all the necessary safety equipment required by the United States Coast Guard. We also provide safety instruction and information about the snorkel spots and the boat. At each snorkel spot we always have a crew member in the water to act as a lifeguard and to lend general assistance with snorkel gear or to answer any questions.
Easy Stair Access
There are two easy access staircases that lead to our water level swim platforms on the back of Quicksilver. No steep ladders to traverse. This makes getting in and out of the water quick and easy. Also, a crew member is almost always standing by on each swim platform to help you in and out of the water, provide flotation devices and help you with your snorkel gear, digital cameras or any other items.
Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Desert! Cookies! These deserve a special mention. Everyone loves our chocolate chip cookies. I don't know what it is about being on a boat, but cookies always taste better at sea. We have plenty so seconds are never a problem.
Cushion bottom or bucket type seating, most with some variation of a back rest, highlight the Quicksilver's comforts. Having something to lean back against and a soft cushion to sit on makes for a comfortable and relaxing day. Most seats on Quicksilver have both.
Fresh Water Showers
After you return from your frolic with the fish, freshwater showers are available. It's always refreshing to have a fresh water rinse after a saltwater bath.
We provide several different types of flotation devices. If your not a strong swimmer, or if you just like to float around, our foam noodles, life vests and boogie boards are available for free. Wetsuits, which not only keep you warm, are also great flotation devices. These are available to rent.
Shady Main Cabin
I know what your thinking; I came to Hawaii for sunshine. Don't worry on most days you'll get plenty. Believe us when we say you'll be happy to have a shady place to hang out if you want to get out of the sun. You don't want to show up for dinner looking like a cherry.
On our cruise out to Molokini our crew members pass out all your needed snorkel gear. They also give instruction on how to properly fit and use your gear. For those of you who need special assistance or a little more instruction, a formal Snorkel 101 class is taught by the captain at Molokini. This is great for first time snorkelers.
Passenger comfort is one of our main concerns. The Quicksilver was designed specifically to operate in the Maalaea Bay area. The wind tends to increase throughout the morning which causes the bay to become a bit choppy on our ride back to the harbor. The hull design of the Quicksilver allows the boat to easy glide over and literally stay on top of the wind chop, instead of plowing through it.
We provide ambient music throughout the trip to add to the relaxing atmosphere. Lots of Jimmy Buffett!!!
