What To Expect: The Quicksilver Molokini Cruise

The Quicksilver Molokini snorkel tour is an experience unlike any other. Here’s what you can expect on the day of your cruise.

When arriving at Maalaea Harbor, a couple of Quicksilver crewmembers will be there to greet you and check you in.

After boarding the boat, the Captain of the Quicksilver gives you a brief, and quite funny, welcome aboard and covers a few basics rules and tips for your duration aboard the boat. Soon you are sailing out to Molokini!

On the way there, the Captain will continuously give you fun facts about the islands and what you can look forward to on your trip, all while you munch on a complementary continental style breakfast. You will see beautiful views of the sun rising above Maui’s Haleakala summit, as well as views of Maui’s neighbor islands Lanai, Molokai, and Kaho’olawe.

Once anchored at Molokini and after everyone has received a quick, thorough snorkel overview, you are free to swim in the crystal clear waters. You will see an abundance of tropical fish species and coral, and may even be able to see down to 150 feet deep!

You are free to get on and off the boat as much as you’d like, slide down the Quicksilvers slide, rinse off with their fresh water shower, take in the beautiful views, or sunbathe on the top deck. After an hour or so, everyone is called in and soon you are on your way to Turtle Town.

On the rare occasion that Turtle Town’s water visibility is poor, the Captain will take you to La Perouse, a snorkel spot on the south shore of Maui. You are very likely to see spinner dolphins as La Perouse is home to many schools of them! While anchored in La Perouse, you can snorkel around the boat or stay on and eat the complementary barbeque lunch that is provided.

Once the time is up and everyone is back on the boat, you begin your trip back to the harbor. On the way, the Captain will point out famous properties and some celebrities homes, any dolphins, turtles, or whales that may surface near the boat, and the crew will play a fun trivia game for a chance to win a free Quicksilver teeshirt.

The Quicksilver Molokini snorkel tour is one you will never forget. The breathtaking views of the islands, educational comments about Hawaii, and overall fun and relaxed atmosphere aboard the boat will make you want to come back for more!
