Went out with Captain Larry and Stephanie today and it was amazing!!! We did this 7 years ago and had another awesome experience! We snorkeled the backside of Molokini which was breathtaking! This is a must-do adventure on Maui!

This was such a great tour. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly and played great music along the way. The breakfast and lunch was pretty tasty and the snorkelling spots were excellent.

We did the Molokini express tour, mostly because it didn't require a super-early check-in (teenagers!) and wanted a chance to snorkel at the crater. The day we we had reservations, the water was rough, so the captain said he could take us with no guarantee of getting to dive, or we could reschedule the trip for another day. So, we... More

Mahalo for your review, Alassio68! We appreciate you being flexible and were happy to hear the conditions were better the second day. The back side of Molokini is truly breathtaking. Please join us again! More

Blue Water Rafting at Molokini is perfect for those who don't want to spend hours upon hours snorkeling. Nice boat ride out there, enough snorkeling to satisfy all four of us in our party, and we still had time to do other things in Maui. Plus as a bonus, I came face to face with a whale shark on our...

We booked a trip on the quick raft to Molokini. We were just interested in snorkeling - not having lunch or breakfast or any of that stuff. We were in the very capable and safe hands of Larry and Vandy. It was relatively rough weather - but after the 20 minute ride - we were able to snorkel for 45... More

HIGHLY recommend them!!

Somehow in my pre trip research I missed this tour, but found it upon arrival to Maui in a guide book. I showed my family and they were very excited for the half day Molokini/Kanaio Coast trip. The raft ride was so much fun. My 8 year old daughter sat on the tube the entire trip. Adventurous and fun! And... More

We wanted to do whale watching and snorkeling in a small boat away from the crowds. It was perfect as we were about 16 people and two crew members in a raft. We saw several whales and had a great time snorkeling. The crew was very friendly and helpful doing their best so that we all had the best view... More

I joined Blue Water Rafting for their trip to the wild Kanaio coast. It is the only company that currently has a permit to take tourists to this wild side of the coast. I have been on several big boat and small raft trips to whale watch and snorkel in Maui over the years and was looking for something a... More
