Molokini is a crescent-shaped, partially submerged volcanic crater which forms a small uninhabited islet located in the Alalakeiki channel between the islands of Maui and Kaho’olawe. Molokini is within Maui County, Hawaii. This islet’s surrounding waters are full of underwater wonders and are this island’s only marine sanctuary. There are more than 250 different species of fish and over 25 different types of coral. During World War 2, the island of Molokini was used for target practice. Bombing and strafing left impact craters, shrapnel, and bullets along the slopes of Molokini which are still visible today. It is believed that nesting birds avoided roosting and nesting Molokini during the war, because of target practice and strafing maneuvers. You will want to jump into the clear blue waters that surround you. This is a unique place to take in your surroundings and enjoy snorkeling. You will experience Molokini’s sea life firsthand and may see Honu’s (Sea Turtles) too. Enjoy history as well as making priceless memories.
