Join Us for an Epic Molokini Crater Snorkeling Adventure

A Molokini snorkeling adventure aboard Calypso is the most fun on Maui! This stable, high-speed, triple-decker catamaran will get you to two snorkel sites fast: Molokini Crater and Turtle Town, and with all the equipment you need and plenty of food on board, what more could you ask for?

You’ll be welcomed aboard by our friendly crew and enjoy a delicious, hearty breakfast. After everyone is settled in, it’s off to the most popular underwater destination in Maui for some afternoon Molokini snorkeling! While you’re enjoying the feel of the ocean wind in your hair, from December through April, watch the horizon for the incredible humpback whales!

Even if you’ve never snorkeled before, or are not a strong swimmer, you can still snorkel! The crew will patiently instruct you on how to use the snorkel gear. If you don’t want to snorkel or swim, the Calypso has a glass bottom in one section, so you can watch your friends and the fish. If you decide to join them later, reaching the water is simple. Wide staircases are lowered through the water’s surface. If you’d rather go express, the boat also has two water slides and a second deck jumping-off point.

After your Molokini afternoon snorkeling, Calypso will whisk you to Turtle Town – a second snorkeling spot. Off the south side of Maui, Turtle Town is home to several large sea turtles as well as dynamic reef fish.  A deli OR roasted pulled pork sandwich lunch with vegetarian options will be served at this time, and water, sodas, and juice are available all day long.  And just when you think the trip couldn’t possibly get better, they come around with chocolate chip cookies.

About Molokini Crater

Molokini Crater is located between the islands of Maui and Kaho’olawe.  This beautiful site is not only home to several fish species, but many species of birds, as well!  The crater is a designated Marine Life Conservation District and bird preserve, so no fishing or climbing on the crater is allowed, but wearing flippers and a mask to watch the fish is perfectly wonderful.

The inner curve of the crater shelters a huge reef where the visibility is often more than 100 feet – perfect for snorkeling! Fish of all kinds will swim by, busily conducting their beautiful business. While you’re exploring, you may see parrotfish, black triggerfish, and longnose butterflyfish. An underwater photographer will be swimming in the mix too, capturing you and your friends/family discovering one of the coolest places on the planet!
