Snorkeling at Molokini Crater

From the moment we booked our Maui vacation I knew that if there was nothing else we did on the island, I wanted to try SNUBA for the first time and visit the Molokini Crater!  The crater is a partially submerged volcanic crater that is a popular spot for scuba diving, snorkeling, and SNUBA.  The water visibility is amazing, you can see depths as deep as 150 feet!  It is also a Hawaii State Seabird Sanctuary which is totally awesome! 

We are slowly checking snorkel sites off of our bucket list and this one became reality last week thanks big thanks to Aqua Adventure!  After looking into several different outfitters and reading tons of reviews we decided on Aqua Adventure because we prefer small groups where we can really get to know the everyone and because we love doing business with family owned and operated businesses.  As business owners ourselves, we know the importance of building relationships and making sure people are satisfied!
