1 x Maui Magic Molokini Snorkeling Trips, Maui Classic Charters

The Maui Magic is a delightful cruise to Molokini. Mooring deep left of center at Molokini Crater, the Maui Magic is far from any other charter boat. The water is calm with an abundance of marine life. The coral is colorful, although more vibrant as you snorkel closer to the crater wall. The craft is a sleek catamaran that cuts through the water like a hot knife through butter. With a small upper deck and center seating in the front of the boat, you will enjoy breathtaking views of Maui and beyond. There are 2 restrooms, a water slide and fresh water shower aboard the boat. There isn't much shade on the Maui Magic, but just think of the tan you will get!

First thing after departing Maalaea harbor, the Maui Magic cruises down towards the Kanio Coast on a sightseeing adventure searching for dolphins. The coastline is rugged and simply awesome. The journey back to Molokini takes you along the back wall entering Molokini from the North end. The rest of the morning is spent snorkeling in Molokini.

Due to rising fuel costs in Maui, the Four Winds applies a fuel surcharge per person.The rates vary per charter. They are detailed in the selection for each Maui snorkeling trip.

Molokini is at the discretion of the Captain the morning of the activity. During inclement weather conditions (high winds or rough ocean currents) the Captain may opt for another location that is more suitable.

Terms & Conditions:

This activity can be changed (based on availability) free. You can also cancel the activity with a 15% cancellation fee (covers the processing fees) at any time up to 48 hours before its scheduled start. The activity is 100% non-refundable within 48 hours of the check-in time.

Weather related cancellations by the Four Winds are 100% refundable.

How Molokini works:

You can liken Molokini to an apartment complex. When you move into an apartment, you get the key from the manager and he assigns you a parking stall. You have to park your car in the same stall every time you come home, or someone is not going to be happy with you.

At Molokini, the manager is the US Coast Guard. Each charter boat company must drop a mooring pin in the exact location provided by the US Coast Guard. They must go to the same mooring pin every day. For some reason, the Coast Guard has assigned 95% of the charter boats to the right hand side of Molokini.

Are you wondering if the boats are crowded? Basically the number of passengers a charter boat can carry is determined by the space aboard the vessel. Even with the larger boats when they are sold out, there is ample room for freedom of movement.

However, that can't be said for some of the smaller vessels, especially the smaller catamarans. The smaller catamarans usually have a net or trampoline on the front of their boat that covers almost all of the deck area in front of the main cabin. This reduces the amount of usable space on the boat. You may think it's really cool, but trying having lunch sitting on the net. If one person moves, your lunch will bounce off the net. Because of this, most of the guests aboard the boat usually hang out in the main cabin producing crowded conditions. Kind of like a sardine can. At the same time their mooring pin is on the right, smack in the middle of 14 other charter boats. Even if the charter only carried 59 guests you really won't be snorkeling with just the people aboard your boat. There will be no less than 800 other people snorkeling in Molokini with you.

Wouldn't you prefer to snorkel with just the people on your boat rather than with the people on 14 other charter boats?

The mooring pin location for the charter should be the primary selection for a Molokini Snorkeling Trip instead of the guest count the charter is certified to host.

This page is devoted to questions we frequently get about Molokini snorkeling in Maui.

How do I get my tickets?
In most cases your Maui snorkeling voucher is delivered electronically to your inbox. All you have to do is print it out; bring it to Maui and present the voucher to the vendor when you check-in.

Do I need a voucher for every person in my group?
No. The number of people participating is listed on the voucher under Q or quantity. One voucher works for the entire group.

I don’t have a printer?
That’s okay. Your phone works fine. All you would have to do is show the voucher on your phone to the vendor when you check-in.

Can I wait until arrive on Maui to schedule a snorkel tour?
You can, but its best to schedule your activities before you arrive on the Island. During the summer, Molokini snorkel trips can book out a week in advance. Besides you should be enjoying your vacation when you arrive, not booking it. Make sense?

What happens if it rains?
In most cases rain doesn’t affect Molokini. In fact, Molokini receives only a couple of inches of rain every year. If there are weather issues, you can reschedule, depending on if the vendors authorizes it. Usually they will, providing there is space available.

What is your cancellation policy?
All Molokini snorkel trips have a 48 hour cancellation policy for any kind of refund. Our cancellation policy is detailed in our terms and conditions page.

Are there any sharks?
No. There has never been a shark sighting at Molokini.

Do I need to know how to swim?
No. But it’s a good idea to know how to swim. Each Molokini charter boat is equipped with floatation devices that you can use. They range from noodles to boogie boards. The US Coast Guard requires every charter boat to carry life vests for every person aboard. If you want one, just ask.

How long do we snorkel at Molokini?
In most cases about 3 hours is about the average time. If the charter company snorkels at another location, then the time may be reduced so you can snorkel with the green sea turtles elsewhere.

Why don’t the afternoon snorkel trips go to Molokini?
It’s too windy. The trade-winds being funneled between Haleakala and the West Maui Mountains create a wind tunnel aimed at Molokini. The winds have a tendency to make a rough ride out to the crater. Most people don’t fare very well, so a more pleasant experience in the afternoon is at Coral Gardens where the snorkel site is protected from the wind currents. Don’t worry as Coral Gardens is an excellent snorkel site.

Do I need a car?
In most cases, yes, you need a vehicle to drive to Maalaea Harbor. We will send you a set of driving directions to Maalaea Harbor.

How are you able to discount the tickets so much?
Quite simple, we work on volume. Hopefully you will see that our prices on all Maui activities are the best rates on the web and you’ll book all of your activities in Maui with us.

Do I have to attend a timeshare presentation to get the discounts?
No. All rates are guaranteed without any strings attached.
