Molokini Crater: If You Start Closer, You’ll Get There Faster…
With Kai Kanani your Maui snorkel tour starts closer to Molokini Crater than anyone other boat on Maui. Some boats take over an hour to reach what takes us less than 15 minutes, thanks to our exclusive launching point in Wailea on Maui’s South Side from the beach in front of the Makena Beach & Golf Resort in Wailea), Kai Kanani Sailing Charters is the closest departure to world-famous Molokini Crater, a snorkeler’s paradise.. Warning: if dolphins or whales are in the area it may take a little longer to get there — around here it’s only neighborly to stop and say hello to the marine life.
Check out the rave reviews and praise from Kai Kanani guests on Facebook and TripAdvisor. Returning guests say early birds love Kai Kanani’s early morning “Molokini Express” trip because they get to be the first to snorkel at Molokini Crater, before other snorkelers arrive. And those seeking a total immersion into Maui’s underwater kingdom prefer the Deluxe Molokini Tour for an extended mid-morning snorkeling experience. Either way, prepare to have the best day of your Maui vacation with us!
