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.

Such a great experience! We went 3 different locations to snorkel. The guides were super professional and experienced, knowing what areas were going to be safe for us & where would have the best visibility.

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.

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.
