Molokini is an ancient volcanic crater located just a few miles from Maui. It rises from 300 feet below the ocean’s surface and is almost half a mile wide.

The isolation of Molokini Crater creates a unique snorkeling experience. Molokini is rock, with no sediment to wash down into the water. Offshore currents bring food and unsurpassed water clarity. Inside the sheltered arms of the crater, Molokini is an amazing underwater Marine Sanctuary. Molokini’s shallow reef is teeming with a wide variety of colorful and fascinating fish and marine animals.

Because of its unique dynamics and underwater majesty, snorkeling at Molokini is unlike any other Maui snorkeling destination. With its crystal clear sheltered waters, Molokini snorkeling is a safe and unique adventure for the entire family.
