Maui Classic Charters offers morning and afternoon snorkel-sail cruises to Molokini on Four Winds II, a 55-foot glass-bottom catamaran. Rates for the morning sail are $89 adults and $59 children 3 to 12; in the afternoon, $42 adults and $30 children (book online to save 15%). Four Winds trips include continental breakfast; an optional barbecue lunch ($7 extra); complimentary beer, wine, and soda; snorkeling gear and instruction; and sportfishing along the way. Those looking for speed should book a trip on the state-of-the-art catamaran Maui Magic. A 5-hour snorkel journey to both Molokini and La Pérouse costs $99 adults and $79 children 5 to 12, including continental breakfast; barbecue lunch; beer, wine, and soda; snorkel gear; and instruction. During whale season (Dec 22-Apr 22), the Four Winds has a 3 1/2-hour whale-watch cruise that goes for $42 adults and $30 children 3 to 12 (including beverages).
