The Deluxe Am Molokini Snorkel trip includes a stop at Maui's #1 snorkeling destination Molokini Crater, and also a stop at Turtle Town. Molokini is a Hawaii state marine life conservation district and bird sanctuary. Located 3 miles off the South shore of Kihei, rising out of 300 feet of water, Molokini is home to many different types of marine life. Tropical fish and animals like the Moorish Idol, Humuhumunukunukuapuaa, Rainbow Wrass, octopus, harmless reef sharks and beautiful coral formations make their home within this sheltered volcanic caldera. Crystal clear water, tropical birds, endemic marine life and this secluded environment make Molokini a unique experience in and out of the water. After leaving Molokini we head over to Turtle Town, where you get to swim with the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles. After Turtle Town, passengers enjoy lunch and a fun and informative narrative by the Captain on their way to search for dolphins in La Perouse Bay. To finish off the day, the guests play trivia to test their knowledge of the Hawaiian Islands. The winner receives a free crew T-shirt. The trip is a great adventure for everyone. A continental breakfast, BBQ lunch and all snorkeling equipment and flotation devices are included.

Nothing compares to the experience of the Quicksilver whale watching/Molokini and Turtletown snorkelling excursion. This five time participant enjoyed this voyage on par with the last ones. That is why we keep returning to Cpt. Nat and his qualified lifeguard crew to give us a safe fun and spectacular outing. Hope to go out with the Quicksilver again next year...

It's been over a month since I snorkeled with QuickSilver. I've thought long and hard on how to review my experience. The majority of the staff was great. It was a beautiful day and what we were able to see was stunning. The Captain also gave a great lesson on the humpback whales we were lucky enough to see. However,... More

This was my first time snorkeling, and I don't know why I waited 68 years to do it! I had a wonderful time! Having been on a whale watch with the Pacific Whale Foundation earlier in the week, I was very impressed by how much better organized this trip was (reservations/payment/boarding/etc). This company has its act together, also including the... More

Molikini waters were too rough, but we had two other stops and I snorkeled for the first time. They were very helpful and made it easy for me. The food was good and it saved us eating out two meals. Lunch was a nice pork or chicken sandwich and they allowed seconds. We did slow down for some whales along... More

The staff were excellent and I have no complaints about our tour. BUT after the first 10 minutes of our time at Molokini, a man was in great distress. He probably had a heart attack and was found face down in the water. He eventually passed away. This boat (as well as many others) are ill prepared to handle this... More

Thank you for the positive comments on our crew and captain. Safety is our top concern. Our boats are equipped with AED devices. We are not certain what this passenger suffered from, or if he had a heart attack. If any potential customer would like to discuss our safety procedures or safety equipment on-board the vessel, please contact me directly.... More

We were suppose to go to Molokini and turtle town but the visibility was not great at turtle town so we did an extra snorkel at Molokini after we cruised around for whales. The staff were very nice and informative regarding the whales. We saw more whales on our snorkeling tour than our actual whale watching tour. The second time... More

Purchased a 5 hour, 2 destination snorkeling trip out to Molokini and Turtle Town but once we reached Molokini the water was extremely choppy with very large swells. I entered the water and almost immediately returned to the boat along with many other people. I saw nothing could not even snorkel due to the rough waters. I was looking forward... More

In spite of the fact that neither of us swim the whole experience was 10 out of 10. The staff were MOST helpful ( I needed help up the stairs). We are both seniors. The captain must have eyes in the back of his head because it was the best "whale watch" we've ever seen (20+yrs).
