Overview
Many snorkeling and boat trips are extremely overpriced in Hawaii and target tourists who don’t know any better. This Molokini and Turtle Arches snorkeling tour is not only fairly priced to fit any travelers' budget, but it also includes a continental breakfast, large barbecue lunch, unlimited soda and tropical juice, all snorkeling gear, and a beginning snorkeling class conducted by a naturalist. Get the most for your money with this guided tour off Maui's coast.
Highlights
  • Cruise in a catamaran during this Molokini and Turtle Arches snorkeling tour
  • Breakfast, lunch, and unlimited soda and juice are all included 
  • Boat has restrooms with a shower, and snorkel platform for easy entry into the water
  • Choose between two departure times for this tour that's guided by a naturalist
What to Expect
This tour meets at Maui's Maalaea Harbor. Hop aboard your catamaran for the day and get ready for an adventure on the water. Your boat is stocked with a bar, a water slide, restrooms, showers, and even a snorkeling ramp. First up on the day’s agenda is breakfast. Enjoy a small breakfast of fruit and pastries as you cruise the waters near Molokini. Your guide tells you about the extinct volcanic crater as you go. You can also take a short snorkeling lesson from the onboard naturalist before getting into the water. Go toward Turtle Arches reef, and see species of fish and coral. Your guide points out wildlife you may not know about or see otherwise. After snorkeling, enjoy a barbecue lunch and relax in the sun on the cruise back to the harbor.
