Full description
Join the crew aboard the Calypso, Maui's newest edition to the fleet. Your snorkeling tour begins at the Maalaea harbor, where you'll board your boat for your excursion to Molokini Crater and Turtle Town. Start the day of right with eggs, ham, cinnamon rolls, donuts, coffee, fruit and juice. A comfortable ride, ease of entry in and out of the water, a professional captain and crew and the chance to learn about this slice of Hawaii are just a few of the reasons this tour makes for an ideal day out on the waters of Maui.

Located off the south shore of Kihei and rising out of 300 ft (91 m) of water, the extinct volcanic cone of Molokini provides the opportunity to see native Hawaiian marine life like manta rays, fish, urchins and sharks, who swim around the coral through the clear water year round. A marine preserve and bird sanctuary, Molokini is protected, so you can expect pristine conditions. Use the provided snorkeling equipment to explore the underwater world and take advantage of the two water slides for more fun, especially to entertain kids. You can also take a peek at the reef without getting in the water via the glass-bottom viewing room.

To ensure safety, a lifeguard is in the water at all times watching over the snorkelers and lending any assistance, if needed.

After leaving Molokini, your second snorkeling spot of the day is Turtle Town, where you have the chance to swim with Hawaiian green sea turtles amid the calm water and coral. Then return to the boat for a barbecue lunch buffet of pulled pork and chicken sandwiches, pasta salad and chocolate chip cookies (gluten-free and vegetarian options are available but must be reserved in advance).
