What you can expect
Try out the ocean waters at 2 spectacular locations along south Maui on a scenic morning cruise. Visit Molokini Crater and the Turtle Arches to explore the undersea world and see how the spectacular coastal scenery hosts another incredible array of sights below the surface.
Your boat leaves Maalaea Harbor later than many of the other craft, but its speed more than makes up for that. Cruising along at a brisk 20 knots (37 km/h), you'll be one of the first to arrive at Molokini Crater, a crescent-shaped island formed by a volcanic cinder cone and home to some of the best waters around.
Enjoy a delicious continental breakfast while your boat is underway and keep an eye out for Maui's acrobatic spinner and bottlenose dolphins, which love to ride on the boats' wake. Once you arrive at Molokini, your instructor shows you how to use your equipment and goes over some essential safety points before its time to head into the water.
After Molokini, it's on to Turtle Arches, located off the Makena Coast, where many of the local green sea turtles are used to snorkelers and divers and will come right up to you. After you've finished your time in the water, enjoy a great deli-style lunch with a wide assortment of sandwich fixings on board, and enjoy a cold drink on your way back home.
