Snorkel the world-famous dive site of Molokini crater before heading to Turtle Arches, known for its large population of resident green sea turtles. As one of the most popular diving areas in Hawaii, Molokini is often busy, but your boat is one of the first to arrive.
On your way to the crescent-shaped volcanic crater, listen as your naturalist guide conducts a snorkeling class for beginners and discusses the delicate ecology of the area. Enjoy a tropical continental breakfast featuring sumptuous baked pastries, local island fruits, juices, and freshly brewed Kona or Maui coffee.
Next, take the slide for an easy and exciting plunge into the ocean, or simply walk down the stairs into the warm water. Once below the waves, check out exotic creatures like the triggerfish, parrotfish, and raccoon butterflyfish as they dart past you with marvelous arrays of colors sparkling in the filtered sunlight.
Then head to Turtle Arches to see green sea turtles swim above the underwater lava arches. Dine on a barbecue lunch with grilled chicken, hot dogs, and veggie burgers, served on fresh rolls with all the dressings and condiments. Sip a chilled soda, juice, filtered water, beer, wine, or mai tai. As you return to the harbor, toast to a day of adventure with a complimentary mai tai, a glass of wine, beer, or a soft drink.
