Think Fun! That is the definition of Seafire Charters’ Molokini snorkeling trip. Seafire is a hard-bottomed inflatable raft that specializes in small groups. Seafire Charters is also known for their friendly captain and crew as the company is family owned and operated. They arrive earlier at Molokini, before any other charter boat, giving you time at the crater without any crowds.
Seafire has been operating Molokini snorkel tours for over 30 years. During that time, they have taken thousands of guests to experience the wonders of Molokini Crater. When you snorkel Molokini, you will discover amazing coral reefs teeming with colorful marine life. Your morning snorkeling at Molokini will be entertaining, that’s for sure.
Molokini Crater is designated as a National Marine Reserve. Protected and cherished, Molokini Crater is also a wildlife refuge. While snorkeling at Molokini you will be amazed at the variety of marine life teeming within the crater. Seafire may, if the wind permits, snorkel the back wall of the crater. That is a special treat that the larger catamarans are unable to participate in due to their size and schedule.
Being in a raft is more intimate, less crowded and less prone to motion sickness. They are less prone because they don’t move through the water slowly like a catamaran. They are quick, to the point and provide an adrenaline rush. A Maui rafting adventure doesn’t include all the amenities of a catamaran. There are no restrooms, covered decks or BBQ lunch aboard this vessel. They are a quick, inexpensive and fun trip designed to get the job done in a stealth-like manner. You will save money, time and best of all have a wonderful experience.
Kihei Boat Ramp is the departure point for Seafire Charters Molokini snorkel. Simply put the charter boats that go snorkeling at Molokini from Kihei are all rafts, which means fewer people and a more exciting ride on the boat.
