Once onboard, you'll soon discover why Maui's visitors consider this trip to be one of the best to Molokini and why we have become a local Maui favorite too. With a crew that is completely dedicated to your needs and providing you absolute fun, this trip is a must-do for families. It offers something for all ages. She is the only vessel with a glass bottom room that you can actually sit in and have a breathtaking view, both in front and below you, of the undersea world. From the avid snorkeler to those that can not swim, the Four Winds II accommodates everyone and provides tons of fun on-deck or in the water. By far, the Four Winds II is one of the best trips, in its class, to Molokini.The Maui Magic is designed for our adventurer's at heart. If you are an adventurer that likes the wind in your hair, getting a chance to see dolphins in the wild, and the thrill of discovering a side of Maui that only a few will see... the Maui Magic is for you! The custom-built 54ft., state-of-the-art, fast and comfortable power catamaran is totally unique in every way. She was designed for Adventure Snorkeling. The experience you have aboard the Maui Magic is more than just your average snorkel tour! This is a true Hawaiian experience, with your captain sharing interesting and unusual facts about Maui’s history, legends and culture. « less

Molokini is incredible, and this charter company is as well. I was a little reserved about booking on such a big boat, but it is layed out really nice so everyone had room. The boat was very clean, and the crew was beyond friendly. The captain actually had my girls sit with him and help drive the boat back after... More

Wow! If you're going to take a snorkel trip to Molokini Crater- these guys are the best! Taylor and the rest of the crew were fabulous! From being so friendly from the moment we stepped on the boat until it ended. The food was fantastic, got amazing pictures and had a smooth boat ride.

This trip was a waste of our money and our morning. We did the Molokini tour on the Four Winds and the Andaz Beach Crew snorkeling trip on an outrigger. No comparison! The Four Winds was packed- we could hardly even find a place to sit on the hour boat ride out there. My wife was getting motion sickness and... More

We trusted them but they took us out in very cold, rainy and very windy conditions. They didnt even warn us or give us an informed option to not go out. It was an abysmal trip. Frankly, I would have paid them ($110 per) to NOT have taken us out, it was that bad. Mercenary Maui Classic Charters just want... More

We had a great trip out to Molokini Crater on the four winds boat. We saw whales,flying fish, and turtles on the boat ride. The water at Molokini Crater is very blue and very clear. There was lots of colorful fish and beautiful reefs. The glass bottom boat was super cool too. Our family had such a fun time exploring... More

Went out with the Maui Magic on our last cull day of vacation. Really great snorkeling and they also offer snuba for an additional fee. They serve a continental breakfast and lunch, which are both nice as part of the trip. No other food needed afterwards :) Really enjoyed this as we saw soooo many whales and also some turtles...

Perfect trip from start to finish! Right from booking the trip to stepping back onto the dock when it was over, everything went like clockwork. Of course, the perfect weather and smooth water were contributing factors, but thanks to Captain John and the very able crew of the Four Winds II for making it a great day. Captain John was... More
