We saw lots of whales on our trip too.Snorkel mask for glasses wearer is perfect. It was a really nice adventure. We have take. Other snorkel trips while visiting Maui... More

We were excited to go on the tour, but disappointed on what we saw. We expected colorful coral, plenty of fish, turtles. The coral was average at best, skinny on the fish and no turtles. We snorkel on every island trip we take and found better coral, fish and turtles off some beaches in Maui. Hype was better than the... More

We took a tour out to Molokini Crater with QuickSilver Snorkel Co. The boat and crew were fantastic with breakfast and lunch included (even alcohol for $2 a drink!). Once we arrives at the crater we had ample time to explore the crystal clear water. Ive never seen so many types of fish in one place before. Visibility was great!... More

Avid snorkelers, we tried Snuba for the first time. Great fun and worth every penny. Molokini Crater was a fun experience and we would certainly recommend it to everyone. However, the crater was crowded with snorkelers when we went, and I didn't find it the best overall in my fish viewing experiences on the islands.

My wife and I had a great trip to Molokini on the Trilogy II. I would highly recommend that tour. The crater was very cool-- lots of beautiful fish to see. Impressive diversity. The visibility was excellent. A unique experience!

Our family of four, kids 12/14, have become avid snorkelers and only more so, during our time on Maui, so we couldn't wait for our tour to Molokini. It was marketed as an amazing snorkel destination with high fish density and variety as well as unlimited visibility. This was the same information provided by all the advertising so not specifically... More

My snorkling trip with the Trilogy V was fantastic. The crew member was awsome, starting with Captain Martin, Jill (so sweet) Nick (made laugh the whole trip) and Byron very proffesional. I am going to go again but with them, the best experience on any snorkling trip and I have taken several in different countries. I am very satisfied and... More

We really enjoyed our time at the crater with Trilogy. Visibility was excellent and seas were very calm on the day we went. It was very beautiful.

Molokini has average coral, clear water but very few fish. There were over 10 boats with hundreds of people all looking for fish. I saw more fish off my hotel beach. They also take you to turtle town. Out of hundreds of snorkellers a handful saw a turtle.

We did a catamaran snorkeling excursion with Trilogy to Molokini and would highly recommend it. The best snorkeling (most colorful, healthy looking reefs, lots of fish) we did during our trip to Oahu and Maui. By far better snorkeling than in Hanauma Bay in Oahu. We would definitely go back.
