How early for snorkel trip reservations?

We will be on Maui 5/23-5/31 and would like to take a snorkel cruise with Trilogy. How early should we get reservations? Can we wait until we are actually on Maui or will the tours fill up?

If it's something that is a must do, reserve like now!! You could wait but if they are full you will be disappointed. Trilogy is very popular, personally I would have made those reservations a month ago!!

Only the morning tours go to Molokini. Why? Because the wind picks up in the afternoon. That's why the morning tour costs more.

I don't know why Trilogy is popular but we went on Four Winds and had a great trip. I would rather be on the less crowded boat even if it costs a few bucks more. Trilogy was full when we went, while our boat had less people.

I'll be in Maui and Kauai from 5/26 - 6/8 and I made all of my reservations for activities last month. I even made a couple of dinner reservations for places that we definitely wanted to go to and to ensure we got the best seats in the house to watch the sunsets.

Most places just ask for a Credit Card # to hold in case you don't show up. I didn't have to pay yet for any of the activities I've booked.

Definitely reserve ASAP. Which snorkel tour were you considering? We've used Trilogy for Molokini, Lanai, and the Ka'anapali coast tour, and highly recommend them. The crews are excellent, the food is pretty good (and lots of it) and the catamarans never feel over-full.
