2 Tank Molokini & Turtle Town Dive
Price: $280.00/Certified Diver ~ $165.00/Snorkeler (all taxes, fees and gear included)
Day: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sunday
Time: 7:00 am – 12:00 pm
Length: 5 hours
Description: Our first destination is the world famous Molokini Crater, a marine reserve below water and bird sanctuary above. The visibility on this reef system averages 100+ feet. Molokini is one of the few places in the world where you can see Hawaiian garden eels, Masked angelfish, Long-nose hawk fish and many more fish endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. Our second dive is Turtle Town which offers a reef formed on lava that flowed from Haleakala centuries ago. The caverns and ledges in the lava as well as the lava fingers nearing the surface create the perfect habitat for sponges, corals, octopus, fish, eels, and shrimp. The highlight of this reef is the number of Green Sea Turtles that gather here to be "cleaned" by a fish known as the Hawaiian Cleaner Wrasse. Between the end of December and the end of April this trip affords a great opportunity to see humpback whales in the waters surrounding Maui which is a National Marine Sanctuary for these endangered whales. The trip includes ALL equipment (BCD, regulator, snorkel, mask & fins, wetsuit, tanks, weights, computer), breakfast, deli lunch, snacks, drinks, reef-safe sunscreen and towels.
Requirements: Proof of Open Water Certification.
2 Tank Molokini Interior & Back Wall Dive
Price: $325.00/Certified Diver ~ $165.00/Snorkeler (all taxes, fees and gear included)
Day: Monday, Wednesday & Friday
Time: 7:00 am – 12:00 pm
Length: 5 hours
Description: Our destination is the world famous Molokini Crater, a marine reserve below water and bird sanctuary above. The first dive of the 2-tank adventure will be inside the crater itself. The waters around Molokini are crystal clear with visibility up to 150 feet. Molokini Crater is home to approximately 250 species of fish- some of which are found nowhere else on the planet. The second tank will be a drift dive off the back wall of Molokini Crater. This is a spectacular dive, as the sheer wall of the crater drops from 200 feet above the surface to over 300 feet below! Because the dive is bordered by Open Ocean, we never know what might swim by: Dolphins, Mantas, Whales, and Sharks have all made an appearance there! The trip includes ALL equipment (BCD, regulator, snorkel, mask & fins, wetsuit, tanks, weights, computer), breakfast, deli lunch, snacks, drinks, reef-safe sunscreen and towels.
Requirements: Proof of Open Water Certification. The back wall is a drift dive, or live boat dive, so you want to be sure you can descend and ascend without a line, maintain a 15 foot safety stop (without a line to hold on to) and have excellent buoyancy control so you don’t exceed the profile depths.
2 Tank Afternoon Turtle Point Dive & Snorkel
Price: $245.00/Certified Diver ~ $165.00/Snorkeler (1 spot only) - (all taxes, fees and gear included)
Day: Wednesday & Friday
Time: 1:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Length: 4.5 hours
Description: Our first destination is Turtle Point. This area has the second longest continuous reef on Maui and has a population of Hawaiian Honu (green sea turtles). Watch these protected creatures, from a safe distance, as they rest on the bottom or they glide gently over the colorful beds of coral. The dive location will also provide an opportunity to see many other fish endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. Harlequin shrimp take residence around coral heads and triton's trumpets and nudibranchs are found nestled in crevices. The second destination will be captain's choice of one of the many reefs nestled in the protected bays at the base of the majestic West Maui Mountains. This area is rich in coral gardens which provide a canopy of hard coral with nooks and crannies that draw a spectacular array of marine life.
