Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
Perfect boat to be on, I was worried due to covid but once we got there and I seen the size compared to the rest of the boats and how big the other crowds were on the other boats I felt so much better. My family had a blast, the crew was very friendly and helpful. Perfect for all ages! My 2.5 year old and the whole family loved our trip. Plus free meal & drinks!

Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
I highly recommend the Four Winds II. The boat is big enough to not make you throw your cookies, but small enough to feel comfortable. The crew were friendly and easy going. Bathrooms were clean. Breakfast and lunch were yummy. Snuba was fun and easy. And the crater has a beautiful reef and amazing visibility. Overall A+ experience!

Four Winds II Molokini Snorkeling Tour from Maalaea Harbor
It was great to visit Molokini! The boat ride there and back and the crew were great! The water was a little rough the day we went so it was difficult to snorkel and cold but it was a good experience overall.
