What to expect
  • A tour with the Calypso is one of the most fun on Maui! This stable, high-speed, triple-decker catamaran will get you to two snorkel sites fast: Molokini Crater and Turtle Town, and with all the equipment you need and plenty of food on board, what more could you ask for? The Calypso leaves from Ma’alaea Harbor, and after you are welcomed aboard by your friendly crew, you can take a look at the delicious hearty breakfast. After everyone is settled in, it’s off to the most popular underwater destination in Maui for some Molokini snorkeling! While you are enjoying the feel of the ocean wind in your hair. Molokini Crater is located between the islands of Maui and Kaho’olawe. This beautiful site is not only home to several fish species, but many species of birds, as well! The crater is a designated Marine Life Conservation District and bird preserve, so no fishing or climbing on the crater is allowed, but wearing flippers and a mask to watch the fish is perfectly wonderful. After your Molokini snorkeling, Calypso will whisk you to Turtle Town – a second snorkeling spot. Off the south side of Maui, Turtle Town is home to several large sea turtles as well as dynamic reef fish.

A great experience!
Oct 2021
Could not have been happier with our tour on the Calypso. The crew was fantastic.. each one was very helpful and could not have been nicer. We took advantage of the offer to snuba and it was the highlight of the trip. They really go out of their way to make sure that everyone, no matter what age, has a great time.

Worth It!
A great half day trip. Stops at Molokini and Turtle Town. Boat is spacious with plenty of room on deck and in the main cabin.

Crew was wonderful. They made sure everyone could participate and enjoy the day regardless of their comfort level with swimming or snorkeling.

The only downside was the soggy sandwich at lunch. The breakfast was good: banana bread and a muffin plus fruit.

Awesome experience
Sep 2021 • Couples
It was awesome! The crew was funny and so helpful, they served breakfast and lunch, we had TONS of time for snorkeling and saw lots of fish and turtles. The slides and jump platform were also a ton of fun. I highly recommend this adventure.

PAID $75 FOR PHOTOS I NEVER RECEIVED
DO NOT GET THE PHOTOS. I paid $75 for photos that I was told were going to be emailed to me that night (9/9/21). After several days with no photos I emailed the address that was on my receipt (saltwatermaui@gmail.com) asking for a link for the photos or a refund of my money. It is now 9/20/21 and I have sent three emails with no response! The woman doing photos was so disorganized and overwhelmed she did not give you an option to buy just the photos of you, so I took her up on the only option she gave me which was to purchase all the photos she took that day for $75. I thought it would be good anyway because she got some beautiful pictures of the reef and turtles that would be included. I feel stupid for thinking she would actually get the photos out because of how stressed she seemed on the boat trying to get information from all the people who wanted photos, but I never thought they would ignore my emails and I would be down $75 with nothing to show for it.

Wonderful time on the Calipso.
Sep 2021 • Couples
Excellent experience. The captain and crew were friendly, helpful and well organized. Waters off of Molokini were crystal clear. Food and drinks plentiful and well prepared. The turtles in turtle town were on vacation further north but the coral reefs were great!

Amazing Excursion
Sep 2021 • Couples
The food and staff were absolutely outstanding! Would definitely recommend this excursion. The best excursion thus far! Plenty of add on since on board to make the experience even better. The staff was young, fun and very engaging. The snuba experience is definitely worth it. I’d recommend going with the third group if you chose this option. You’ll be able to reach the reefs much better at the second location and have the opportunity to swim with the sea turtles.

Easy marina access, paid parking for the day
Aug 2021
Staff was friendly and helpful. Out on a seemingly clear day, but our only stop was Molokini. I have snorkeled here before with a diving boat which visited a better location, but this Calypso location was perfect for families with mixed swimming skills. The kids also enjoyed the slide and jump.
Boat was clean and organized, lunch was sufficient (solid Costco lunch).
