Description

Snorkel at the world-famous dive site of Molokini crater before heading to Turtle Arches, known for its large population of resident green sea turtles. An early departure means that you reach this world-famous snorkelling destination before it gets busy, letting you have the serenity of the underwater world all to yourself.

On your way to the crescent-shaped volcanic crater, listen as your naturalist guide conducts a snorkelling class for beginners and discusses the delicate ecology of the area. As you cruise across the sea, enjoy a tropical continental breakfast featuring sumptuous baked pastries, local island fruits, juices, and freshly brewed Kona or Maui coffee.

When you arrive, glide down the onboard slide for an easy and exciting plunge into the ocean, or simply walk down the stairs into the warm water. Once below the waves, check out exotic creatures like the triggerfish, parrotfish and raccoon butterflyfish as they dart past you with marvellous arrays of colours sparkling in the filtered sunlight.

From there, cruise across to Turtle Arches to swim among gentle green sea turtles as they drift through fascinating underwater lava arches. Warm up on deck as your savour a barbecue lunch with grilled chicken, hot dogs, and veggie burgers, all served on fresh rolls with all the dressings and condiments.

Pacific Whale Foundation advocates for the use of protective clothing and reef-safe sun cream to help protect fragile coral reefs and to promote a healthy ocean environment. We support the statewide ban on sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate and, beginning November 2019, we are moving from encouragement to enforcement and instituting our own ban onboard PWF vessels of sunscreens containing: oxybenzone, octinoxate, avobenzone, avobenzine, homosalate, octisalate, octocrylene, and ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate in order to alleviate any additional stress on the coral reefs. When buying sun cream, it is important to read the ingredient list, as the term “reef safe” is not regulated and can be used as a marketing device. Choose sun cream that is non-nano zinc oxide based. Mahalo for helping us protect the ocean.
