Molokini is a crescent-shaped, partially submerged volcanic crater which forms a small, uninhabited islet located in Alalakeiki Channel between the islands of Maui and Kaho?olawe, within Maui County in Hawai?i.
Her crystal-clear tropical waters are home to an array of fish and other unique species of marine-life that seek shelter ininside the shelter that the crater provides.
The actual island is also a protected nesting area for two distinct species of seabirds.

The crater actually formed hundreds of thousands of years ago, which is why Molokini has a long and interesting history.
Recent archeological evidence shows that the ancient Hawaiians actually ventured out to Molokini, hundreds of years ago, to fish.
And it is also believed that they may have additionally harvested seabirds, eggs and feathers here too.
But today, Molokini Crater is a carefully protected Marine Life Conservation District and the island has been declared a Hawaii State Seabird Sanctuary.

Molokini is also a protected habitat for sea birds.
Molokini is an underwater Marine Preserve and Molokinis snorkel areas are protected.
Visibility is often 150 feet, tropical fish are everywhere, and Molokinis sheer cliffs and rugged beauty are the focus of professional photographers from all over the world.
