Molokini Crater is one of the most iconic snorkel and dive spots in the Hawaiian Islands. Located three miles off the coast of Maui, Molokini is a sunken, volcanic crater known for its excellent visibility and abundant marine life.
Declared a Marine Life Conservation District in 1977, it is one of only three volcanic calderas in the world and boasts a multitude of wildlife – from colorful corals to high flying seabirds.
To minimize human impacts to Molokini’s reefs, tour boat operators take steps to protect the area’s fragile ecosystem. For example, operators tie their vessels to mooring balls instead of dropping anchor and fish feeding is strongly discouraged.
We are now working to designate Molokini as the first, 100% Be Reef Safe destination in Hawai’i.
By transitioning every Molokini snorkel and dive boat to reef safe sunscreen and sustainable sunscreen alternatives, we aim to lessen the human impacts to Molokini’s coral reef.
