Full description
Feast on a continental breakfast as you meet your group for the day. Enjoy Maui Vegetable Fritatta, assorted pastries and fruit platters.  Explore Molokini on an intimate, small-group ecotour of Maui’s #1 snorkeling and diving destination. Each adventure carries no more than 38 guests on Ocean Explorer, a 54 ft. single deck catamaran with open seating and unimpeded views – so there’s plenty of room to move around and enjoy the views. Snorkel the iconic volcanic crater and its beautiful reef known for crystal clear waters, abundant coral, colorful fish, and resting seabirds. A flexible itinerary includes visiting a second snorkel spot, such as Turtle Arches, as well as cruising along Maui’s coastline.  Following your adventures in the ocean relax with a delicious lunch cooked on board for you.  Enjoy a lunch of grilled chicken wraps with spinach, tomato, carrots and cucumber and a variety of salads.
