Hi, I'm Yuri founder of Sea Scooter Snorkeling on Maui and co-owner of Yonegan Maui Ocean Getaways. I am an open water PADI certified scuba diver. CPR & First Aid certified. I LOVE snorkeling, free diving and scuba diving. I have had over 1000s of snorkeling tours and lessons on Maui. I am an ocean adventurer, sunset chaser and turtle lover. I help and rescue endangered turtles. I am also a professional underwater photographer. I genuinely love the ocean and marine life. After the great success of my beach snorkeling tour business for over 3 years, I decided to take my guests to Molokini Crater and other amazing spots for snorkeling. Now I have this beautiful open-air 40' SAFE-boat that we can reach Molokini Crater in less than 20 minutes. This gives us more time for snorkeling and less time traveling.

Don't hesitate to book! I had a great experience! Not only the Molokini Crater but our group was able to see a pod of dolphins, a baby humpback whale, and her calf. The boat crew did an excellent job on safety and protocol. Mahalo!

This trip was awesome. Captain Jonathan and his partner were super friendly and made us feel welcome. We got to Molokini early and snorkeled without crowds. Then we got to stop and see whales and jump into the blue pool where we heard whales singing underwater! The best part was at turtle town where a school of dolphins swam by and two humpback whales swam RIGHT by our boat. Could not be better in the imagination. As others have mentioned, this trip is more like 3.5-4 hours rather than 5, but that’s because you get to Molokini so fast, don’t have to deal with crowds of people putting on and off snorkel gear and jumping in, etc, because only about 10 people are on board. We had as much time as we wanted to snorkel and enjoy at each place, there was no hurry. Totally ideal.

Don’t waste your time with other giant snorkel excursion companies. Yuri’s team was super friendly and professional, and had everything we needed to have a great experience. They know all the local spots and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable

A very good experience! Didnt see a lot of fishes but did hear some whale sounds undersea. The captain even took us to try to see waves.

Awesome experience! I’m not the strongest swimmer but Captain John made sure I wasn’t in any danger. Loved seeing the sights out on the water and I would for sure recommend this to anyone visiting Maui. I would recommend this 10/10 any day.

I went on a snorkeling adventure with my 16-year-old daughter. It was her first time snorkeling Molokini and she absolutely loved it. I personally actually get pretty seasick but took some nondrowsy Dramamine prior to the trip and was advised by the captain to sit in the back of the boat. And guess what I was absolutely fine and enjoyed a lot of snorkeling ! We are experienced swimmers , but even if you are not completely comfortable in the water you will be provided with noodles and you will be comfortable. We did have a non-swimmer in our group and he was absolutely fine and enjoyed his time in the water as well. We also saw some whales ! Amazing and fun for sure. All the staff was very experienced, professional and seem to truly enjoy their jobs. I hundred percent recommend this experience to anyone.
