The trip and crew were fabulous! The water at Molokini was a bit choppy so it wasn't the best snorkeling but still fun. I will go again next time I am here.

I booked through Viator and had a great rate. I asked to cancel one of our party of 10. They canceled everything. They rebooked the 9 and when we arrived on Friday the tour operator didn’t have our reservation and no room on the boat! Ruined my daughters college grad trip and I am out $900 as they didn’t refund my money!

The crew was very accommodating. The food was perfect for the trip and the snorkeling was an experience we’ll never forget. We saw so much marine life but the highlight was definitely Turtle Town and swimming next to Sea Turtles!

The experience and crew were great. There was enough time in the water to see everything, but not so much time that it dragged. All around great pace and memorable time.

The snorkeling was amazing and the captain and crew were great. The captain was very entertaining each time he made an announcement and the crew members were very kind and professional and definitely felt like they knew what they were doing. We saw tons of sea turtles at the second spot. The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is that I wish they didn’t pack us like sardines on the boat. I was so squished I literally was half off of the bench the entire boat ride and if I moved in another direction I would hit someone else. I wish they had booked like 1-2 less parties than they did because if I knew it would be that uncomfortable I wouldn’t have cell even booked (I enjoy boat rides so I wanted to enjoy not only the snorkeling but the boat ride as well).
