Snorkeling Molokini aboard the Pride of Maui in the care of our expert Captains and crew means you can relax. You will be equipped with comfortable, sanitized, professional snorkel gear, flotation devices, and optical masks, to fully explore the underwater sanctuary. If you are feeling even more adventurous, take your snorkel experience to the next level, by participating in SNUBA diving at Molokini.
SNUBA is the best of both worlds – a hybrid between snorkeling and scuba diving.
If you are up for an exhilarating underwater adventure, our Maui snuba is the adventure for you! With snuba you will enjoy the unique experience of weightlessness and breathing underwater up close with the beautiful marine life in a safe, controlled environment, about 15 feet below the surface, under the watchful care of our expert Maui snuba instructors.
You do not have to carry that heavy air tank on your back. It is attached to a raft on the surface above you, with a long hose and breathing apparatus that you breathe from. All you have to is relax and breathe.
Maui SNUBA diving is a unique adventure requiring NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE or special talents at all. You just have to be at least 8 years of age, in average health and willing to experience the adventure of a life time.
SNUBA aboard the Pride of Maui provides you with once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the ultimate underwater adventure.
Turtle Reef (aka Olowalu) is bordered by a coral reef and underwater lava formations, animated by numerous colorful fishes, starfishes, and other aquatic delights. As you splash into an ocean of fun at Turtle Reef, you will be welcomed by one of Maui’s most gentle residents, the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles.
The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles are a protected species and it is unlawful to touch, chase, ride or harass them in any way. Swim calmly, and respect the green sea turtles in their natural environment.
Your freshly prepared BBQ lunch includes big juicy burgers, hot dogs, marinated chicken breasts, as well as an open bar with ice cold beer, regional wines, and tropical mai tais. Homemade mac-nut white chocolate cookies are baked fresh daily for your enjoyment.
