  Morning Afternoon Maui Magic
* Our Morning Snorkel Trips SUCCESSFULLY reach Molokini Crater 95% out of the year! Reaching Molokini depends upon daily weather, wind and wave conditions. In the afternoon, Maui's prevailing tradewinds and ocean conditions often make it difficult to reach Molokini. Should we not be able to make the crater that day, our optional snorkeling site is another great spot known as Coral Gardens.
** We DO SEE turtles 95% of the time on all our trips! However, sea turtles are dependent upon nature and location. Molokini does not typically attract turtles, because of the crater's off-shore distance away from Maui, so our turtle encounters occur closer to Maui's shorelines.
