The crater reminded me of pictures of astronauts walking on the moon The volcanic rock is so weird, porous in reds, browns and black, from tiny pebbles to huge chunks. I love Maui! I love all of Hawaii!! Sure there are lots of people in many popular tourist spots but it is possible to get off the beaten path, meet some of the locals, see beautiful country and do some fabulous shopping!

We were at Molokini in late October. We did the tour which includes Maui Magic Dolphin Cove and one more stop on the coast of Maui to nadarmos with turtles. The visibility is excellent at Molokini and the boat have Snuba I recommend. A boat is the ideal medium avoiding the queues to get into the water and competition for places. Do the tour to Molokini and not go wrong, enjoy.

If you're expecting something beautiful and teeming with fish, this isn't the place to go. It was probably beautiful at one time, but not anymore. This was a big waste of money for us as we've been to Fiji. There are way too many people there everyday and the reef is going to continue to degenerate and the fish will keep disappearing. The tours at this point are killing the reef. I'm not a crazy environmentalist, but I am passionate about coral life, and I think the Hawaiian people need to put a ban, or at least a strict limit, on the tours going to Molokini to give the reef a chance to recover. There are minimal fish and the coral is small, dull and colorless. It's really a shame. There is just as good of snorkeling along the coasts at some points. I promise you, you're not missing anything by skipping this tourist spot.

We checked out a promotion on Maui and we saved like 70 percent totally worth it, the trip was amazing, we saw hundreds of different fish, sea turtles, some dolphins. The captain and crew are great really helpful and fun. We got our tickets online @ http://mauifunthings.webs.com/ Maui Dave hooked us up. If you wanna an awesome all inclusive trip to Molokini, turtle town and dolphin world with a glass bottom and a bbq lunch check it out.
