Owner description: Maui Snorkel Adventure Tours to Molokini Crater, Turtle Town, and other premier Maui snorkeling destinations.
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Our hotel recommended the Pride of Maui for a snorkeling/snuba trip to Molokini and Turtle bay. We snuba off of Molokini but there wasn't much to see there. We wished we had waited until we got to Turtle bay. We saw several sea turtles there. The snuba instructor was great. Breakfast and Lunch was served as well as an open bar after the snorkeling was done. Overall this was a great trip.

SNUBA diving (no experience needed) is a really great way to get a closer look at Hawaii’s amazing underwater world and we’re glad you chose to experience it. Molokini Crater and Turtle Town are truly two of Maui's best snorkel and dive destinations, offering two completely different underwater perspectives. The sheltered waters and incredible visibility at Molokini makes it a once in a lifetime adventure. Visiting the Hawaiian green sea turtles in their natural habitat at Turtle Town is a memory you will have for years to come. Mahalo for joining us.

The only real reason worth doing the Molokini Snorkelling boat tour is just to say you have seen the crater. But it is not worth the money or, if you are one of the unlucky ones, the sea sickness. There will be about 100+ on the boat and then about 3-4 more boats at the crater. So, a lot of people. And most of them don't even bother to look under the water half of the time. You don't see many fish if you are snorkelling. Most fish are down in the coral, so you'd be better of doing a scuba or snuba dive. You spend a lot of time just looking at people's legs under the water and being kicked and pushed by disrespectful kids and tourists. The best part was seeing turtles but even that you can do for free at plenty of beaches on Maui. The crater itself looks nice in pictures but up close it is just a crescent shaped rock, nothing special. Most people get sea-sick on the boat. One positive was that breakfast, lunch and beverages are included. Staff were excellent.

We welcome all our guests' comments and appreciate the time you spent to review us. Most of the feedback we receive is very positive and we are disappointed you did not enjoy the experience as much as our other guests. Sea sickness is no fun at all and we empathize. Fortunately, Pride of Maui is the largest and most stable Maxi Power Catamaran on Maui and very few of our guests suffer motion sickness. Molokini Crater is home to a nice variety of colorful coral and diverse marine animals. The exceptional visibility, often in excess of 100 feet, is largely responsible for the popularity of this magnificent snorkel location. The vast majority of our visitors are very respectful of the environment and listen carefully to our instructions designed to enhance the experience, respect the environment and keep everyone safe. We're glad you enjoyed our continental breakfast and barbeque lunch and recognized how hard our seasoned crew works to make sure our guests are well cared for.

We really enjoyed our day on the Pride of Maui. Great crew, food, drinks, scenery, the equipment all well maintained, clean and working and some great snorkelling spots. Molokini Crater was beautiful and the water crystal clear, only disappointment to me - I didn't see a turtle all day! Highly recommend this trip to anyone. Mahalo very much guys!!!

We travelled with a family of 5, kids aged 8-13. Our youngest was too scared to get in the water but everyone else enjoyed themselves. I thought it was well run, fun, and worth it!

Friendly and hospitable crew made the trip relaxing & exciting. My husband and I spent our 5th wedding anniversary aboard the Pride of Maui and thoroughly enjoyed our day!
