I reserved a "Four Winds II Afternoon Snorkel Whalewatch" (their title, not mine). If they had titled it an afternoon snorkel, they would have been closer to the truth. If they called it an afternoon of sales pitches for still photographs, video, alcohol, wet suit...More

The crew are friendly. The food is good. After the snorkel, they provide temporary tattoos to customers, which are very cute.

Great captain and crew, and amazing views at Molokini crater! We did see some whales, even though it was right at the tail end of the season! Parking does take a while here, so arrive early!

Breakfast was rolls, fruits, and coffee, which was just enough without filling up before snorkeling. The captain took time on the trip to and from Molokini to stop and watch whales and dolphins. At Molokini we snorkeled and tried Snuba. Snuba was the closest thing...More
