I am tardy in writing this review, but I have to share our experience with Molokini Wild Side Eco-Adventure’s Molokini Wild Side Snorkel! This excursion is perfect for those more adventurous, intermediate to advanced snorkelers looking for a truly one of a kind snorkeling experience! No two trips are alike on this particular excursion (hence the excursion being titled “the wild side”), as each day is customized to the ocean conditions; and where the 2-3 snorkel stops will vary. We loved the smaller group size (no more than 38 passengers), & where children under 7 are not permitted. Everyone on this vessel is an experienced snorkeler, which means that we got more in water time to explore the various treasures under the sea; and at locations where other vessels don’t get to go. What made this particular trip truly epic is that we had the rare opportunity to do a drift snorkel on the North Wall of Molokini Crater, which offers a 300+ft drop & incredible visibility! The conditions were just right, & the passengers onboard experienced enough to allow us to do this challenging drift snorkel. I literally wanted to cry underwater, as this truly was “the most magnificent & thrilling snorkel stop I’ve ever had!!!” Having had the opportunity to snorkel this wall was quite possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I will cherish it forever! The all female crew was fabulous & uber efficient & attentive! All in all, a must do excursion in Maui; and when looking for an adventurous, one of a kind snorkel experience!
We went on the molokini wildside tour on the ocean explorer. I highly highly recommend it!!! First of all this was the perfect size ship, not too many people at all. Excellent food, gorgeous sights! We saw so so many dolphins, fish, and sea turtles up close! The food was heavenly to come out of the water and smell fresh barbecue and be handed cold beer and wine!! The people in charge were top notch and spoiled us! I want my money to go to this organization that does so much for local Hawain children and animals. Thank you so much for this unforgettable experience!!!!
We did a whal watching tour on a big boat which was great. But there is a "snorkling on the wild side of molokai" tour which was on a much smaler boat and on that trip we saw whales, and snorkeled at molokai and with turtles so i recommend that trip. The pacific whale fou dation is non profit and the tours are very well operated! You learn a lot and contribute to the conservation of the ocean! Absolute recommendation.
