Afternoon Snorkel to Coral Gardens or Molokini

Afternoon fun in the sun at a great price!

This snorkel excursion is a lighter and shorter version of our Morning trip. With a later start-time, it is a great option if you are not an early riser.

This trip goes to Coral Gardens unless weather permits us to reach Molokini Crater. Coral Gardens is one of Maui’s premier snorkeling destinations (Coastal Living Magazine rates it as one of the World’s Top Ten Snorkel Sites) and offers a treasure of underwater sights, and amazing marine-life including a chance to swim with turtles.

The Four Winds II afternoon Coral Gardens snorkel tour serves up an OPTIONAL hot grilled BBQ Lunch and features beer and wine as well. All your snorkel gear, flotation, and instruction are provided.

We additionally offer you the experience of SNUBA to take your snorkeling adventure to the next level.

This is my 2nd trip with the crew of Four Winds Snorkeling. Still a great experience.
I recommend these guys to everyone I know! Nathaniel P. Seattle WA.

This was a great snorkeling experience! The boat was spacious with ample seating options. Best part is we were free to enjoy at our own pace. There was no tour guide shuffling us around from one spot to the next. The boat was clean and well maintained. There were lots of activities for younger ones.
Best part of the trip was how many whales we saw! Highly recommend this snorkeling experience. Samantha R. Flushing NY

We snorkeled Coral gardens it was very calm and beautiful. We snorkeled for quite some time saw so many fish, and a SEA TURTLE, I literally swam side by side him! I loved every minute of this trip! Janelle P. San Lorenzo CA

Started out the trip whale watching and we got the chance to see about 4 to 5 pods of whales! It was truly a breathtaking experience to see whales in their natural habitats. We did snorkeling at the coral garden which was just as stunning. Mealnie X.

Do this cruise, you will not be disappointed! We saw more whales than I could keep track, two dolphins, and a ton of tropical fish. Mona V. Bend OR

SNUBA is great for those who have snorkeled before and are strong swimmers. Dive down with a certified instructor but without the hassle of a scuba tank and all the equipment. It’s a great bridge between snorkeling and diving and its offered daily!
