Forbidden Coast and Molokini - Redline Rafting
Hold on as you zoom across the water to the remote Kanaio coastline to view Maui's most recent lava flow along with a number of enchanting caves, lava arches and grottos. Learn about the cultural and geological formation of the islands and the steps being made to preserve it. Stop at La Perouse Bay in search of Hawaiian spinner dolphins that call the bay their home. These friendly dolphins sometimes follow the boat to its first snorkeling destination. Next, jet off to Molokini Crater and spend an hour in the water exploring, or lounge on one of the comfy pontoons. If your group is feeling extra adventurous, jump in and snorkel on the back wall of Molokini, a place very few visitors ever get to see. Your tour will conclude with an up close and personal encounter in the water with the protected Hawaiian green sea turtles.

Then the next day we went to the Redline Rafting. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone! Sean and Kiki were knowledgeable, safe and had a great time doing it. There was even locals on this excursion. We went to Molikini, the back side of Molokini and the reef. Then we went over to Turtle Arches and the fish preserve. Later that day we headed to our next excursion was with the Lahaina Cruise company for a cocktail cruise during sun set. This was a great way to end the excursions that we took!
Our snorkel trip with Redline Rafting was an amazing adventure. We saw a variety of beautiful marine life but the very best was swimming with the sea turtles! Our guides were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend this outing.
This trip was amazing. Tim and Alex were our guides and they were perfect. Professional, personable and very knowledgeable. We got the most enjoyable history lesson we've ever had and snorkel with turtles to boot. We were also extremely lucky enough to see two whales. AND, the food was fantastic. Do this trip!
We had a really great time snorking! We were able to see a lot of sea life. Seth and Chase were great very helpful and entertaining. We like how the boat was smaller and very personal feeling. We will definitely book with red line again on our next rip!!!!
Not for the feint of heart, as this boat ride can be rough, but super super fun if you seek adventure and a small crowd. Highly recommend. The guides were fantastic, taking us to multiple spots to snorkel (including the front and back walls of Molokini).
We had an amazing day on the Redline. Hit some fun waves, played great music, dove in spots we'd never been before. Can't wait for our next trip.
