Molokini is Maui's #1 snorkeling destination. Its crystal clear water, beautiful fish and unique scenery make Molokini epic for snorkeling and diving activities year around. Molokini is located 3 miles off the coast of South Maui. It is a Hawaii state marine life conservation district, home to more than 250 species of fish, many of which are endemic to this location. Manta rays, eels, harmless white tip and gray reef sharks also frequent the area. Molokini is also a bird sanctuary.
South Maui Turtle town is located off the Kihei shoreline near the area referred to as Makena Landing. Turtle Town is said to be a cleaning station for the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles. A turtles shell can be over run by algae and other parasitic marine life. Regular cleaning is essential to their health and well being. Here turtles relax and have their shells cleaned by the local angelfish, tangs, wrasse and other algae eating fish that live amongst the coral.
Obviously pictures are a must on your Molokini snorkel adventure. How about underwater pictures? Look no further. We rent the high quality Olympus Tough underwater digital camera right on the boat. At 16 megapixels, these cameras offer unlimited video and still photos and are excellent at capturing fish, turtle and family members for later display on your Facebook page. $40 Rental Fee, includes DVD with all your pictures and video.
Our 3mm wetsuits are not only great for keeping warm during snorkeling, they are also great flotation devices and they provide 100% uv sun protection. No need to reserve one early. We have plenty available on the boat. $10 for adults and children.
Quicksilver features 4 glass viewing panels so you can see the marine life right through the bottom of the boat. This is a great option for people who do not intend on getting in the water but still want to take a peek at the reef. On rare occasions whales have been seen swimming under the boat on our whale watch tours.
Need a quick way into the water? Do your kids need entertainment? Look no further than the Quicksilver's waterslide. Its is located on the back of the boat next to our easy staircase into and out of the water so you and your kids can go around and around, down the slide and up the stairs, repeat to infinity and beyond!
Went on the Calypso because we had a diverse party (some very comfortable in the water, others not) and wanted a comfortable deck space. We definitely got what we wanted, including: comfortable seats, camera / photo services for rent, optical goggles (!), nice service, food, lots of floatation devices, and finally lots of wonderful aquatic life to see! We got super lucky with the weather and it was awesome. The staff on Calypso are incredibly helpful & friendly!! We loved the boat (esp. the slides & high jump!) Breakfast & lunch were great. The Crater got a bit crowded for snorkeling, but still plenty to see. LOVE the "sea boards" for kids so they can enjoy too. Definitely recommend this to all! Aloha!
The boat and the crew were fun and awesome! Really loved this as a cap to our vaca. Was disappointed we didn’t see turtles but they definitely make it a fun trip!
We took a party of 7 on a morning tour on Calypso to Molokini and Turtle Town. Fortunately we went on a calm day, which made for a smooth ride and clear waters. The crew is friendly and we felt very safe. Even while snorkeling, some of the guides hung out in the water on floats, helping anyone with issues, anti-fog spray, etc. The food was pretty good for a shipboard buffet. It was cool to see Molokini, tons of fish, but similar to what you’ll see along the Maui shoreline. In other words, you don’t need to take a tour just to snorkel. The snorkeling everywhere in Maui is very good. After the crater, we boated to Turtle Town and it delivered! -We saw 3 good size turtles and even more fish. Overall, we recommend this tour on the Calypso.
