Dive the Crater

The drowned, 230,000-year-old crater of Molokini creates a tantalizing half-moon atoll off Maui's southwestern coast, midway to Kaho'olawe. This marine reserve is an outstanding destination for ecotourism given the seabird nesting colonies, the prime viewing of humpback whales, and some of Maui's best scuba diving and snorkeling.

Cruising the coral depths, you're likely to see quite the cast of characters, fish-wise: from parrotfish, tangs, and trumpetfish to whitetip reef sharks (which chill out in seafloor caves at the so-called Shark Condos) and the occasional manta ray or spinner dolphin.
