Full description
Join the crew aboard the Calypso, Maui's newest edition to the fleet. Your snorkeling tour begins at the Maalaea harbor, where you'll board your boat for your excursion to Molokini Crater and Turtle Town. Start the day of right with eggs, ham, cinnamon rolls, donuts, coffee, fruit and juice. A comfortable ride, ease of entry in and out of the water, a professional captain and crew and the chance to learn about this slice of Hawaii are just a few of the reasons this tour makes for an ideal day out on the waters of Maui. Located off the south shore of Kihei and rising out of 300 ft (91 m) of water, the extinct volcanic cone of Molokini provides the opportunity to see native Hawaiian marine life like manta rays, fish, urchins and sharks, who swim around the coral through the clear water year round. A marine preserve and bird sanctuary, Molokini is protected, so you can expect pristine conditions. Use the provided snorkeling equipment to explore the underwater world and take advantage of the two water slides for more fun, especially to entertain kids. You can also take a peek at the reef without getting in the water via the glass-bottom viewing room. To ensure safety, a lifeguard is in the water at all times watching over the snorkelers and lending any assistance, if needed. After leaving Molokini, your second snorkeling spot of the day is Turtle Town, where you have the chance to swim with Hawaiian green sea turtles amid the calm water and coral. Then return to the boat for a barbecue lunch buffet of pulled pork and chicken sandwiches, pasta salad and chocolate chip cookies (gluten-free and vegetarian options are available but must be reserved in advance). Last but not least, enjoy a trivia game for the chance to win a crew T-shirt. Some of the top amenities include two slides, a "leap of faith", two freshwater showers, use of quality snorkeling gear, flotation devices, and restrooms are provided on the boat. If you want, you may rent a wetsuit or underwater digital camera at your own expense. SNUBA is also an option. The boat features an easy-to-use stairway in and out of the water, lots of shade and plenty of Jimmy Buffet music, all to entertain you during your day in paradise. Optional pay on-board SNUBA.

We had a great time. The crew was very friendly and helpful in every way. They truly wanted you to have the best experience possible. Loved snorkeling in Molokini with all the beautifully colored fish. Then going to Turtle town to swim with the turtles was an added bonus. We also enjoyed the slide and dive platform on the largest boat in the marina. Wish breakfast and lunch could have been better but we got box items because of Covid. I’m sure it will change with the times. All in all it was a great trip!

You will never regret this awesome experience because of the AMAZING crew. Not just totally ready to handle everything you could possibly need but most delightful, friendly and happy!! Sooo informative about everything and sooo much more!! Only disappointment was the food which didn’t live up to advertised. It was not bad enough to take away from the experience. Thanks Calypso!!
