More About Diving Molokini Crater

Molokini Crater

Bombed, fished then preserved, Molokini Crater has been a Marine Life Conservation District since the summer of 1977. It is also a bird sanctuary above water. The underwater landscape features some of the most extensive hard coral reefs in Hawaii. What was once a round, volcanic cinder cone is now partially submerged, creating a protective crescent atoll.

Yellow TangWith visibility exceeding 100 feet, you'll encounter a wide variety of tropical fish, including yellow tang, moorish idol, parrot fish, black triggerfish, bluefin trevally and various butterfly fish. A huge whale shrak may pass by. Our dive guides will help point out some more elusive creatures such as Hawaiian garden eels, manta rays, white tip reef sharks and moray eels. You might even discover a delicate harlequin shrimp amonst the coral heads or a nudibranch in a crevice.
