Our first destination is the world famous Molokini Crater, a marine reserve below water and bird sanctuary above. The visibility on this reef system averages 100+ feet and provides a panoramic view of the marine ecosystem. Molokini is one of the few places in the world where you can see Hawaiian garden eels, Masked angelfish, Long-nose hawk fish and many more fish endemic to the Hawaiian Islands.
Frequently Manta rays, White tip reef sharks, Amberjacks and Moray eels are also sighted. Harlequin shrimp take residence around coral heads and Triton's trumpets and nudibranchs are found nestled in crevices.
Our second destination is a reef nestled in the protected bays at the base of the majestic West Maui Mountains. This area is rich in coral gardens which provide a canopy of hard coral with nooks and crannies that draw a spectacular array of marine life.
The highlight of the dive will be our visit to a Manta Ray cleaning station where Mantas like to gather. The wing span of the near-shore Pacific Manta Ray averages 5 to 8 feet but can reach well over 14 feet. The mantas have no teeth, no stinger, and a harmless disposition. Their only defense is to flee.
This dive will also provide an opportunity to see Hawaiian garden eels, masked angelfish, long-nose hawk fish and many more fish endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. Harlequin shrimp take residence around coral heads and triton's trumpets and nudibranchs are found nestled in crevices.
Between the end of December and the end of April this trip affords a great opportunity to see humpback whales in the waters surrounding Maui which is a National Marine Sanctuary for these endangered whales.
