For many, to snorkel Molokini crater is a "must-do" on their Maui vacation. But, with so many boats to choose from, why choose Trilogy? For starters, we are one of the few real sailing trips, and Ma'alaea Bay is one of the great flat water sailing destinations* in Hawaii. Next, we take 40-50 guests while the big power cats can average 125-149 passengers. That should be reason enough to go with Trilogy, but there's more! We also go to two snorkeling sites rather than just one. Not only does this give our guests additional variety, it's our way of avoiding some of the crowds. We provide all snorkel equipment including instruction and wetsuits. We also offer the option to try the new exciting sport of SNUBA**! Finally, while it's tough to beat Mom's homemade cinnamon rolls baked fresh daily at Trilogy's kitchen or Capt. Coon's BBQ'd teriyaki chicken cooked by your captain for lunch, what really sets Trilogy apart is the personal attention each of our guests receive. I guess that's the main reason Trilogy guests are so loyal and come back sailing with us year after year. And they have been doing just that for over 40 years! If you haven't already, isn't it time you became part of the Trilogy family?

* Trilogy tours to Molokini depart from Ma'alaea Harbor which makes it a brief and enjoyable trip to the crater area. Ma'alaea Harbor is an optimal launching site for boats going to Molokini. While some boats leave from Lahaina Harbor, if you launch from Ma'alaea you avoid having to take a long, rough ride back to Lahaina after your snorkel or SNUBA. Since tradewinds often come up in the afternoon, the seas are often rougher during this time when the boat is making its return voyage, and so the shorter trip to Ma'alaea is highly preferable.
** The optional SNUBA upgrade is for one dive site. Occasionally, depending on availability and weather conditions, we may offer a second SNUBA dive for an additional $40. If you are interested in this additional SNUBA dive, please ask your crew member if it is available. Find out more about SNUBA by reading our blog post
