Sea Caves along Kanaio Coast Rafting & Molokini Snorkeling Adventure (5 1/2 Hours)


Blue Water Rafting
KANAIO / MOLOKINI TOUR
Our Ultimate adventure!

Spinner Dolphins The Kanaio Sea Caves... Passengers can expect a rare treat as they tour along Maui's Gold Coast past Wailea and Makena to a remote and inaccessible coastline with spectacular views of the slopes of Mt. Haleakala. About 200 years ago at Kanaio, molten lava exploded from a side vent and poured into the ocean forming incredible lava arches, grottos and sea caves. Photographers will delight with the array of unique formations that await at every turn.

Dolphins Dead Ahead!... Following Kanaio, you will cruise to the protected waters of La Perouse Bay, frequently encountering a pod of spinner dolphins , including babies, along the way or in the bay itself. Named for their acrobatics, these playful mammals will frolic in the wave produced by our boat sometimes only a few feet from the bow!

On many occasions, our snorkelers have been approached by dolphins while in the water. This experience has been described as spiritual and is a visual and auditory experience that one never forgets.

A continental Breakfast consisting of individually wrapped muffin and assorted fruit cup is served before snorkeling. Water and hawaiian juices available. A remote snorkeling site will be offered such as the calm protected corner of the bay or the La Perouse Pinnacle which is teaming with fish. (Time and conditions permitting)

Molokini Crater... After departing La Perouse Bay, you'll head for Molokini, a short 20 minute ride from the bay. There we will generally offer up to three unique sites including the inside rim, the outer reef and the back side of the crater. By this time of the day conditions at Molokini are generally calm and most of the bigger boats have departed or are departing leaving plenty of room for uncrowded snorkeling.


Drift snorkeling the outer reef... is one of the many highlights of this tour. Imagine snorkeling one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world drifting gently along with the current as your boat follows near by for your safety. Glide past a variety of butterfly fish, wrasses, black and pink tailed durgeons, all posing against a backdrop of beautiful coral only 3 feet below ... truly a photographers dream!

For an exciting panoramic view, venture over to the edge to witness an awesome 200 ft. drop. It's like looking off the edge of the world!

Back Side... (optional site) Time and conditions permitting, another drift snorkel may be offered on the back side of Molokini, a favored dive site for advanced scuba divers. The depth here is about 300ft. but the lighting and the view of the vertical wall of rock, coral and fish is phenomenal. This site may also be offered as an alternative to the inside under certain sea conditions.

.

The variety of scenery and wildlife encountered both above the surface and below truly make this tour one of the most comprehensive snorkeling adventures available on Maui.

After Molokini we make one more stop in Makena where we serve a delicious lunch consisting of individually wrapped ham and cheese or turkey and cheese croissants*, nut free chocolate chip cookie, water and hawaiian juices. Here we snorkel with sea turtles and spotted eagle rays near pristine lava fingers. these turtles, although endangered and protected, are accustomed to seeing snorkelers and do not mind being photographed as they surface for air just a few feet away.

*Vegan and gluten free options are available if mentioned in comments section.

* Tours are limited to 12 passengers due to state restrictions.

Sea Caves along Kanaio Coast Rafting & Snorkeling Adventure

The Kanaio Coast Tour offers an opportunity to explore a rarely seen part of Maui, The Volcanic Kanaio Coast and a variety of remote exotic snorkeling sites, includng both spinner dolphin and green sea turtle habitats.

The Kanaio Sea Caves... Passengers can expect a rare treat as they tour along Maui's Gold Coast past Wailea and Makena to a remote and inaccessible coastline with spectacular views of the slopes of Mt. Haleakala. About 200 years ago at Kanaio, molten lava exploded from a side vent and poured into the ocean forming incredible lava arches, grottos and sea caves. The experience of entering a sea cave by raft or passing through a massive lava arch should not be missed! (conditions permitting) Photographers will delight with the array of unique formations that await at every turn.

Dolphins Dead Ahead!... Following Kanaio, you will cruise to the protected waters of La Perouse Bay, frequently encountering a school of spinner dolphins , including babies, along the way or in the bay it's self. Named for their acrobatics, these playful mammals will frolic in the wave produced by our boat sometimes only a few feet from the bow!

On many occasions our snorkelers have been approached by the dolphins while in the water. This experience has been described as spiritual and is a visual and auditory experience that one never forgets.

One of several remote snorkeling sites may be offered (time and conditions permitting) such as the La Perouse Pinnacle, which is teaming with fish. Each site has a unique underwater terrain and a variety of marine life.

Breakfast consisting of individually wrapped muffin and assorted fruit cup is served before snorkeling. Water and hawaiian juices available.

Turtally Cool! ... Departing La Perouse Bay, we make one more stop in Makena where we snorkel with sea turtles and spotted eagle rays near pristine lava fingers. these turtles, although endangered and protected, are accustomed to seeing snorkelers and do not mind being photographed as they surface for air just a few feet away.

A delicious lunch consisting of individually wrapped ham and cheese or turkey and cheese croissants, nut free chocolate chip cookie, water, and hawaiian juices, are served before returning to the dock.

Molokini Express (2 Hours)

The Molokini Express is ideal for those who wish to enjoy the crystal clear waters and abundant marine life at Molokini but prefer to limit their time on the water to 2 hours.

Express transport to Molokini via our high powered rafts will take less than 15 minutes. Once briefed, fitted with top quality gear and in the water, over one hour of snorkeling time is available at prime locations away from the crowds.

By arriving at the crater just after most of the other boats have just departed, we find the area to almost empty alowing us to drift snorkel large areas of the rim if we choose to.

One of the most popular and spectacular drifts is over the outer reef formed by the rim of the volcano which at points is only two or three feet deep and then drops off on the outside to 200feet. Gliding over the reef gives one the "feeling of flying" as you look off the edge of the world!

The backside of Molokini might remind one of "The Abyss" as the wall plunges to depths of 300 to 400 feet. If the wind picks up on the inside of the crater, this area is often the calmest water for snorkeling. Tropical fish are just about everywhere, but the shafts of light, awesome visibilty, towering cliffs and sheer drop offs are what make this site so unique.

21/2 Hour Whale Express/Molokini Snorkel

The Express Whale Watch/ Molokini Snorkel is a great way to combine snorkeling at Molokini with a whale watching adventure on a fast and maneuverable rigid hulled inflatable. We almost always make it to Molokini on this one but if conditions are not favorable, a shoreline alternate may be selected. Your passage to and from Molokini will take you through waters laden with Humpback whales with a high percentage of mother/calf/escort pods. Just today a whale surfaced less than ten yards from our boat and lifted her calf out of the water on her head to show us. Awesome! About one hour is devoted to snorkeling, and 1 1/2 hours to passage and whale watching. Beverages and gear are included.
