The best way to spend a morning on Maui
My wife and I wanted to take this tour because of its extent. Most snorkeling trips on Maui take you to a couple of places, but Redline takes you to FOUR! Getting a reservation is not that easy, though. Due to Covid, they are only allowing 12 on board their motorized raft. They suggested watching their website for a last minute cancellation, and when one appeared, we pounced.
We met at the boat ramp at 6:30, so that we'd be out at the Molokini crater far ahead of any other tours. We watched flying fish skip over the water in our wake. A quick breakfast and into the warm waters. The crater is essentially a fishbowl, and we enjoyed the multitude and variety of fish passing us by.
Then, as other boats were arriving, we took off to the back side of Molokini, where the walls drop a sheer 250 feet down. We were told to watch for big creatures like rays, but none appeared. Instead, we were treated to scores of fish all the way into darkness.
Climbing back into our boat, our skipper suggested we have a little fun, riding the waves to the lava caves on Maui's southwest shore. "Sit tight and don't bounce," he suggested. "Otherwise it could get uncomfortable." Turning up the volume to the Rolling Stones, we bounced and swerved over the waves as only a boat like this could. Another snorkeling spot, then off again, roughriding the waves. We slowed as a pod of spinner dolphins jumped around us, then a last snorkel stop at Turtle Town. Many of the endangered green turtles swam around us, which was quite a thrill. Lunch of deli wraps, chips, cookies, and soft drinks followed, before arriving back at the ramp.
This was a wonderful trip, and my wife and I will definitely go again. But a word of caution - this is not an excursion for inexperienced snorkelers, or the faint of heart. Our skipper and crew were very solicitous, making sure everyone was having a great time(and we were). But there was no one babysitting us in the water. We were told where danger might lie, but no one was blowing whistles and waving arms. We were adults and treated that way. And no question - the ride from Molokini to Maui was a thrill!
Like I said, we'll do it again!

Family fun excursion
We had such a blast on this trip! Tim and Zac were beyond amazing, with lots of history and information about the islands. The breakfast and lunch served were a really nice tough too. The hours flew by because we had so much fun.

Redline 7am Snorkeling tour October 20, 2021. Sunshine and warm morning.
Oct 2021 • Couples
Highlights: Tour leaders Tim & Katie were awesome! They both were nice & friendly and made our snorkeling spots and ride on water memorable. Tim & Katie both have great personalities & made the tour FUN & safe. Tim provided a fun experience with his driving (turning water cookies) along with retro music choices. Tim also had an endless supply of jokes related to the ocean. Katie provided us and everyone on board with personal assistance if needed getting in or out of the water along with keeping our masks sprayed with defogger before each stop. Katie, being a marine biologist, shared much information about the area and its marine life which was quite interesting and informative.
.
Snorkeling highlights: four different spots that included plenty of colorful fish in the clear blue water around Maui. The back side of Molokai crater was worth stop and swimming with Sea Turtles (seeing 6) was cool. Nature treated us to a special unexpected bonus experience seeing Spinner Dolphins, including young ones, twice, once on way to our third stop and again as we enjoyed our lunch.
.
Value: We received a friendly welcome and experience from checkin to saying goodbye. My wife used one of the free wetsuits that was offered which made her warmer both in & out of the water. Our tour including breakfast (cinnamon roll & fruit) and lunch (wrap, chips & drink).
.
Summary: W are in our 60’s and in good heath so we found the boat easy to drop off side of boat and use the ladders to get back on board. Again our tour leaders Tim & Katie made our tour great!
Mahalo, Bob & Jane

Highlight of the trip - 5 hours of fun
This was incredible. If you like snorkeling you owe it to yourself to do this tour.

It is a very early departure for a reason - the waves are calmest in the morning and the boat ride and snorkeling is the best that way.

First stop is Molokini Crater which was breathtaking. After that, they bring you around back for a beautiful experience on the back wall of the crater. Then snorkeling near the lava fields on the south shore and finally a tour of a turtle-filled reef.

We are strong swimmers and experienced snorkelers. We were so happy and tired by the end of it. If you’re a beginner snorkeler or a weak swimmer, don’t do a 5-hour tour.

The boat ride is fast and rough. It’s only 15 minutes between destinations which is awesome. Other boat tours to molokini take an hour each way. If you are motion sick pick a different tour.

Our guides (Katie and I can’t remember the captains name sorry) were professional, knowledgeable and overall excellent.

If you have the grit, do this tour. 1000% worth it.

Molokini crater (inside and out) were amazing! Capt. Jonathan and Josh were the perfect guides and new so much about the islands and surrounding area. Turtle town was a great way to end the snorkeling. Saw some beautiful fish and sea turtles!

Absolutely amazing! Our captain made sure our experience was truly enjoyable. The boat skips along the ocean to 4 breathtaking snorkeling spots. We only had 8 people on our boat which made it a better experience. Couldn't recommend this tour more!
