Want to explore longer than a snorkel allows? Snuba dive Molokini!
To take a closer look at marine life in a fun and unique way, you can snuba dive Molokini. You can stay underwater longer and dive deeper than you can while snorkeling, because you are attached to a surface supplied air system. When you use a snorkel, you generally float on the surface to stay close to your air supply – the air above your 12 inch snorkel. Snuba dispenses with that little detail, and lets you enjoy the ocean environment several feet below the surface. A crew member will monitor the air supply as it floats on a solid raft above. Because you are able to swim beside the fish instead of above them, you will see them in a different light.
When you snuba dive Molokini, you can spend time watching marine creatures after they’ve darted into a hole in the reef. Imagine relaxing while waiting for an octopus to come out of its den, and being right there as it cautiously pokes its head out! If a sea turtle swims by, you might be able to see the underside of its shell – a rarity while snorkeling. Swim through large schools of fish, and feel as though you are one of them. And during the winter months, listen to the entire song of the humpback whale, rather than just a few bars.
You might think that this activity requires all kinds of training, but no experience is needed to snuba dive Molokini. You already know the basics (how to swim and breathe), and your experienced crew will teach you how to use the equipment, so you’ll be good to go!
Being able to stay underwater for long periods is quite a valuable thing – just ask any fish you meet. When your Molokini excursion offers a snuba diving option, you’ll want to dive right in. Enjoy!
