Maui Snorkel Charters trip out of Kihei boat ramp is hands down the best snorkel trip we’ve ever been on in over 25 years of coming to Maui.
Are you ready for an adventure that’ll make you smile for DAYS?
Every day on Maui is unique, offering dramatically different experiences depending on the time of year and daily ocean conditions. The best snorkeling spots change day to day – an insider secret that our regular customers have figured out! (Ask about our multiple trip discount)
We revel in the fact that no two days are alike, which is why we built a custom boat to accommodate changing conditions and offer a unique snorkel tour on every trip.
When you join our Molokini snorkel tour, we’ll take you to the spots with the best snorkeling that day. While other tours also go to Molokini, we’re the best option to for a customized group tour, taking you to all of the best spots around South Maui. You’ll get lots of personal attention from us, too, because we don’t overcrowd our boat.
Molokini may be main attraction, but you’ll see so much more! You’ll visit up to 7 snorkel sites, depending on conditions (the most of any snorkel tour on Maui!).
Your four and a half hour adventure begins at 7:45 am (7:15 am check in) – late enough to sleep in, but early enough to get back before the trade winds pick up in the afternoon. You’ll depart from the Kihei Boat Ramp, a 5 minute drive from most Wailea Resorts and within walking distance of many Kihei condos. This prime location allows shorter transit times to Molokini and the South Maui Coastline, which means you’ll spend less time getting places and more time snorkeling!
7:15am – Arrival
When you arrive at 7:15 am, our team will meet you and have warm drinks and a snack waiting. Get settled in while our crew prepares your sanitized snorkel gear and wetsuit tops ensuring proper fit and comfort.
7:45am – Explore Molokini
At 7:45 am sharp, we’ll depart for a 10-minute ride to Molokini, during which time you can enjoy a breakfast of fresh Maui pineapple, muffins and a variety of cold beverages while you learn about the important ecological role of Molokini and how to most effectively use your snorkel gear.
Whether it’s your first time snorkeling or your 100th, our crew covers everything you need to know for the best snorkel possible for that day.
Then the real fun begins. At Molokini, you’ll see plenty of beautiful fish, coral, shells, octopi, and a host of other interesting sea life. Our crew will be in the water with you the entire time not only to ensure your safety but also to point out some of the most overlooked marine life.
9:30am – Adventure To More Snorkel Spots
The fun doesn’t stop after Molokini. Next, your captain will pick the best secluded snorkel spots based on the day’s conditions. If Maui’s really showing off, you might explore up to 7 sites, including Turtle Town, Blue Lagoon, and Pu’u Ola’i (Red Hill).
Keep your eyes out for special guest appearances along the way from dolphins and, between December and April, humpback whales!
12:30pm – Back to the Boat Ramp
To wrap up your Best Day Ever, we’ll sit back, relax, tell some “big fish” stories and enjoy a delicious deli style lunch. You’ll be back at the Kihei Boat Ramp around 12:15 – 12:30 pm, leaving your entire afternoon free for another Maui adventure.
We don’t offer afternoon tours because of our commitment to always showing you the Best Day Ever! The trade winds pick up in the afternoon which makes the ocean rough… and we’ve found it’s just not as much fun with strong winds and water blowing in your face!

If you’re looking to go on a snorkeling adventure and want to see the most places in one trip, than look no further.
South Maui offers some of the best snorkeling in all of Hawaii, and we’ll make sure you see the best. With tons of locations to choose from, our captain will select the best for the day’s conditions to ensure you take home some incredible “fish stories.”
Molokini Crater is considered by many as the #1 “must-do” adventure on Maui, and is the first stop on the trip. The crater is home to more than 250 species of marine fish, some of which can be found nowhere else on Earth. We’ll spend enough time here to see multiple spots around the crater before moving on to other great locations.
Beyond Molokini, you’ll have a chance to explore places like Turtle Tow,n known for the high concentration of green sea turtles that like to hang out here. Pu’u Ola’i (Red Hill) off the coast of Makena State Park known for spotting eagle rays.
We get to show you so many more snorkel spots than you’ll see on other tours because of our Seafari™ approach. Just like an African Safari, we guide you through an area rich with beauty and wildlife during one snorkel ‘stop’. Our crew will be in the water with you, drifting from spot to spot, pointing out coral and other marine life along the way, as our boat floats along with you. Because you are not constantly swimming out to a snorkel spot and back to the boat, you get to see way more with less effort!
