Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Molokai Hammerhead Dive (Mokuhoʻoniki)

An advanced dive that leaves from Maui over to the coast of the neighboring island of Molokai. In the summer, there is a pod of hammerhead sharks that swims in the area. The best time for this dive is in the summer months, around May to September. The crossing is notoriously rough, so be prepared with some anti-nausea pills.

Loved this dive so much!! It was my first time ever seeing hammerheads. We saw about 20-30 of them on the first dive. The ride over is certainty rough so be prepared if you get seasick but it’s worth doing this dive.

Even though we could only see one hammerhead clearly, still a 5 star dive for being able to see HAMMERHEADS! Slightly rough ride out there, but not as bad as it could have been.

We saw 1 hammerhead off in the distance on the first dive, and a pod way off in the distance on the second dive. Happened to go on a calm day, so the channel crossing wasn't too bad. Otherwise we saw some barracudas and a giant spotted eagle ray. Would've loved to get a clearer view of the hammerheads, but it's luck of the draw in the ocean as always
