My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our excursion with the Redline Rafting crew. They did an outstanding job. Swimming on the back side of Molokini Crater was indescribable and worth the price of admission! It really was an enjoyable morning and we will certainly return in the future!

The snorkeling was incredible. Saw amazing amounts of coral at Molokini, lots of turtles at turtle beach and even more incredible coral at our third stop. The food was great and the ladies helping us were very kind.

Lots of fun for 5 hours of snorkeling, wave riding and fun!  We saw many fish in the reef at Molokini Crater. Then turtles at the last stop.  All in our party had a great time!

Molokini Crater is a small islet off the southwest shores of Maui. It is a unique geological feature, and is home to abundant wildlife both above and below the water. With little sediment runoff into the ocean, the visibility at Molokini is a snorkeler’s dream! There are many different types of corals and algae, hundreds of species of fish, and let’s not forget the birds that can be seen soaring in the sky and nesting on the land. If you’re lucky you may spot an octopus or an eel, or get to swim with a manta ray or reef shark!

Molokini Crater

Around 230,000 years ago, the volcanic caldera that we call Molokini was formed. Back then the entirety of the caldera was exposed. However, since the melting of the ice caps from the most recent ice age some 20,000 years ago, sea levels have risen to a point where only the southern edge of the crater protrudes from the water; creating the crescent-shaped islet we see today.

Geological and historical records tell us that Molokini was used by early settlers of Hawaii for fishing, hunting, and gathering. Not only was it used for sustenance, but Hawaiian mythology describes the islet’s formation and cultural significance with intricate legends and stories.

More recently, Molokini suffers from damages caused during the World War II era. Following the bombings of Pearl Harbor martial law was declared. Molokini and its neighboring island Kaho’olawe were used for target practice. Evidence of the bombings can still be seen today. From the 1950s to the early 1970s, black coral was harvested commercially as a precious commodity. Eventually, after years of public outcry and lobbying, Molokini and its surrounding 77 acres were established as a Marine Life Conservation District and Bird Sanctuary. Permanent moorings are installed to prevent anchors from dragging across coral beds, there are limited numbers of commercial vessels permitted to operate there, and it is illegal to fish, touch, feed, or take anything within the preserve. Molokini is a beautiful snorkel destination, and it is up to us to remember and honor its unique history while respecting the wildlife that call it home!

Snorkel Tours

Molokini Snorkel Tour

Redline’s Molokini and South Maui Coast Adventure, explores Maui’s more remote locations. The backside of Molokini (a very pristine environment) and La Perouse Bay’s playful, curious spinner dolphins, are two favorites. We frequent Maui’s best sites (think caves, lava arches, and grottos) – but not always the most popular!

Tour Features

Our comfortable and agile ocean rafts will get you there quickly so you can snorkel longer and see more. And, our max capacity is 24, so it’s ‘ciao’ to the crowds! Breakfast, lunch, wetsuits, snorkeling gear, (plus juice, water, and soda all day) are included (FYI: Alcohol is taboo due to the adventure factor). And yes, there’s a bathroom on board!

Snorkeling from Kihei

Our ideal and advantageous location allows guests staying in hotels or condos in Kihei, Kahului, Wailuku, Wailea or Makena a little more time to catch some z’s before embarking on a one-of-a-kind adventure. And once we’re all boarded, we’re just a quick 10 minutes to Maui’s most premier snorkeling at Molokini.


Whale Watching from Kihei

Something special happens in the waters surrounding Maui between December and April. North Pacific humpback whales come to mate and have their calves in Hawaii’s warm, protected waters. Redline Rafts are extremely maneuverable and can carry a maximum of 24 passengers so there’s a good view from every seat!
