This was the second time I went snorkelling with Blue Water - the first time was excellent, as well!

The staff are very knowledgable!
The price is right!
The ride is a blast (especially if there are waves)!
And the snorkelling is the best on Maui - Molokini has the clearest water!

If you want to go to the crater, go with Blue Water.

While I always rely on reviews, I never write any, but I feel compelled to do so today.

We just came back from our first trip to Hawaii, which was one fabulous week in Kihei, Maui. After much research, I had booked the 5 1/2 hour snorkeling adventure with Blue Water Rafting, despite concerns about going out that early (7 a.m.) and being out there for such a long time.

There were three reasons I did so (and am very glad I did).

One was the fact that we would also be checking out the incredible walls and caves along the shoreline. While you can't go into the caves, just seeing them up close was awesome. And the history and information that Joe provided was fantastic.

Two was the idea of snorkeling at Molokini AFTER the crowds had left. We had the entire crater to ourselves. An unforgettable experience.

Three was the opportunity to snorkel in three different locations, including with dolphins (didn't see any) and with giant green turtles of which there were plenty. Very cool.

Our captain, Joe, was very entertaining and knowledgeable. It was obvious that he wanted us to have a good time. I should mention that, thanks to him, we also had some great whale sightings while traveling between our snorkeling sites. The only negative was that there were no dolphins that day, but the whales more than made up for that.

Joe also provided us with a light breakfast as well as fantastic sandwiches for lunch.

We will be doing this again.

What do you need to bring? Bathing suit, sunscreen, underwater camera, towel. There is some dry storage room available for a small backpack. If you are inclined to be sea sick, take something for it before leaving.

Thanks for the great time Seth!!! We had a great experience on the Molokini Express with Blue River Rafting in december 2013. The 2 hour trip was the perfect amount of time and allowed us 1.5 hours of snorkelling time. We even saw whales and sea turtles!

Had a great time with blue water rafting. The captain and the crew were extremely helpful and they took us to extra places no others would show. Also for snorkeling trip we had 3 drop points all three of different types and it is a memory we all will cherish or entire life, especially swimming with the giant green turtles and the molokini part :) well done guys.
