Maui Whale Watching, snorkeling, swimming and sightseeing is great. The Hana Highway sights and Waterfalls were spectacular.

We did the snuba with the company. It was delightful! They had wetsuits to rent and did all the education as we were sailing so when we got to the spot we didn't have to wait through lectures. The breakfast and lunch were great and of good quality for a boat tour. The crew was amazing. They were very friendly... More

First of all, great prices. Captain and the 2 girls manning the boat are very very sweet and helpful. Did the 3 hour snorkel trip that was supposed to go to Molokini, well we didn't go to Molokini as the brochure promised; instead went to a coral reef. Captain said it was "better time-wise" so that we could do some... More

The wife and I had the time of our lives. Our afternoon trip was the highlight of our vacation. We saw whales, turtles, coral, and an endless variety of fish.

Booked the morning snorkel for (4) adults - lucked out in having one of the best days in a few weeks for the weather. The staff was great to work with and extremely knowledgeable - each one nicer than the next. Upgraded onboard for snuba - my son wants to get certified for diving now-great introduction to the sport. We... More

Very good staff.. Friendly and talkative .. The lady Alexa and her colleague ( forgot his name) are very helpful.. Even the snubaman who apparently also is the bartender is very lively and slides the glass as he passes on your drink to u.. Too cool..;-)

My wife and I have been to Hawaii a couple times together. We've also been on a boat several times. So we planned ahead, her more than I because I'm ok with the ocean. It turns out that many other passengers did not plan ahead as the washrooms and mid-level deck were chalked full of sea-sick and vomiting passengers. Now,... More

We made the mistake of not booking a Molokini snorkel tour early enough, but the Lani Kai found room for us. That's both a plus (for us) and a minus (for those who booked early and expected less passengers). Boat was full, barely an empty seat to be found. That being said, crew was very friendly and helpful. We read... More

Great crew, great food and great value. Snorkels, masks and fins are provided but if you have your own mask and snorkel, I would suggest using your own. We did an afternoon trip which is only three hours vs 5 hours for the morning trip. That's because they rarely go to Molikini on the afternoon trip because it is usually... More
