History of Molokini

From Lava to Life

Molokini Crater is what’s left from an eruption that is said to have occurred around 230,000 years ago. The cinder cone created has since been eroded to a crescent atoll.

Since it’s violent volcanic creation, Molokini Crater has served as a useful place for marine life, bird life and humans (for good and bad.)

The little, uninhabited island has been fished, bombed, and finally protected.
