Choose the early morning tour if you want to go to Molokini If you have your heart set on going to Molokini then select the morning tour, during the week we were in Maui the winds picked up in the afternoon and it was too rough to go over to Molokini. We did not realize this and booked the afternoon trip. Wish we had gotten up early for the morning tour - although there is no guarantee that the morning trip will go - it really depends on the weather. Snorkelling at Coral Gardens was very average, we could have easily just rented snorkelling gear and gone to a beach and seen just as many fish. We did not see any turtles there. The lunch is hot dogs and a bag of chips. So if you aren't into hot dogs then definitely bring a snack. Make sure you bring tip money - we were told 3 times that we needed to tip - they recommend $10 per person. We had trouble finding the initial meeting spot (I went through my emails and couldn't find the directions) so arrive early so you have enough time to find the group.

Great Snorkel Outing The excursion was very well organized, and well run. I very much appreciated that they offered a veggie burger option in place of the 'hot dog lunch' served on board. ;) The Coral Gardens snorkeling site was great, and we were so happy we could use our own equipment and just 'jump in' off the side when we were ready instead of having to wait for those who were uncertain/inexperienced to make their way down the ramp with help. (We've been on outings where we spent significant time having to queue and wait for others to muster the courage to get in....thanks for individualizing the experience so they had that time and we could just JUMP!). Appreciated that they had a fresh water source on board to rinse off when we got out of the salt water! Got REALLY lucky and had a mother whale and her baby come up close and personal for us to observe and take pictures on they way back, even though that was NOT the intention for this excursion: BONUS! :) The location was easy to get to via Uber from near the ship port, and the captain was mindful of our schedule and returned promptly to the marina so we would make it back to our ship in time for our all aboard time. Would definitely recommend this outing.

Great trip!! Best value for the money. Best value for the money!! Great trip. The seas were rough but once we got to Coral Gardens the water was calm and perfect for snorkeling. (1.5 hrs at the closer Coral Gardens). Excellent crew. We had a great time. Parking is $10 at the large harbor lot. Can rent wet suits onboard so don't need to pre reserve. Hot dogs on the way back after snorkeling so late lunch. Suggested tip at end of trip was $10 per person. Perfect so we didn't have to guess.
