Our destination is the world famous Molokini Crater, a marine reserve below water and bird sanctuary above.
The first dive of the 2-tank adventure will be inside the crater itself. Molokini is a partially sunken volcanic tuff, cone crater just 2.5 miles off the coast of Maui. Molokini is protected area and designated as a State Marine Life and Bird Conservation District. The waters around Molokini are crystal clear with visibility up to 150 feet. Molokini Crater is home to approximately 250 species of fish- some of which are found nowhere else on the planet.
The second tank will be a drift dive off the back wall of Molokini Crater. This is a spectacular dive, as the sheer wall of the crater drops from 200 feet above the surface to over 300 feet below! Because the dive is bordered by Open Ocean, we never know what might swim by: dolphins, mantas, whales, and sharks have all made an appearance there! The back wall is a drift dive, or live boat dive, so you want to be sure you can descend and ascend without a line, maintain a 15 foot safety stop (without a line to hold on to) and have excellent buoyancy control so you don’t exceed the profile depths. Back Wall dives (as all dive sites) are weather and skill level dependent. This dive profile is generally run to 70-80 feet. All dive sites are weather conditions permitting.
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.
