An Amazing experience

The snorkeling trip was a highlight of our vacation to Maui. The snorkeling was great at Molokini Crater but the stop at Turtle Town to swim with the Sea Turtles was even better! The captain shared with us a wealth of information and facts about whales and we were lucky enough to see 4 mother/baby whale pairs on our boat ride.

The winds were too high for us to go to Molokini so we snorkeled the Pali area instead which was very nice. We had someone with us who could not swim and the guys were extremely helpful and patient with her. Due to the winds, there was only one snorkeling spot, so, Captain Carlos said that we would try to find some whales but it was mid April so the chances weren't high of spotting any. We found a competition group of whales and watched them for close to an hour. It was amazing!! Captain Carlos was full of info about whales and the staff couldn't have been more helpful!! Would definitely recommend and look forward to going again!

Fun snorkeling adventure for my family. We couldn’t get out to Molokini because of the weather, but they still made sure to get us somewhere nice, safe, and fun. They provided all gear and flotation devices as well. The whole family had a great time.

I love this trip so much! The crew is super nice and friendly. The captain provides excellent commentary along the way about the history and background of Molokini and the ecosystem there (bonus some dad jokes, too)! Everyone on the crew is very accommodating to the guests. The small deli lunch and breakfast was enough to keep you full and energized and not too much that you'd get seasick easily. I saw a few passengers felt seasick and the crew were very attentive to them. I recommend getting sea bands and ginger candies! They really helped me! Molokini is super beautiful! This was my first time snorkeling and I really enjoyed it! There were wetsuits for rental on the boat but the water wasn't too cold even though it was still early in the day. We got used to it and didn't rent the suits. There were so many corals and fish! It does get crowded later during the day so I'd suggest picking the earliest time slot that you could find! Turtle Town was also very fun! We spotted 4 turtles. The crew informed us about keeping a distance from them and everyone was very responsible! It was a very pleasant trip! Note: There was also a professional photographer that were on board with the crew. Ash took beautiful pictures for us for a great price! It was much better than me fumbling with a camera/phone underwater. You could ask them ahead of time if there will be a professional photographer coming along for your trip to know if you should pack your camera or not!

I had a great time with my group of 6 friends. The crew was great and very informative, nice and fun! We weren’t able to go to one of the snorkeling sites due to high tide so instead we went whale watching and saw 3 Whales. Can’t recommend them enough! Can’t beat the $3 drink specials after snorkeling either! Also got a great pic of 2 out of 3 crew members, hope they see it! Thanks for an amazing time!

Disappointed

We were a little late due to a car wreck holding up traffic. I tried calling 2 times a and left a message letting them know we were going to be late. No answer. We ended up getting to the slip right at the time the boat was departing. They were literally 15 feet off the dock and they would not pull back in to pick us up. Very disappointing but they already had our money. So no reason to come back and pick us up.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
We are very sorry to hear about your experience. Sounds like you guys were late. Checkin is 30 minutes prior to departure, It's often very difficult to turn the boat around, especially with 30 other passengers onboard. We will look into it with the captain and see what happened. Again, we are very sorry you were late and missed the boat. This isn't something that happens frequently.
