Because of so many negative reviews and feedback here on TA.com, we chose to take a cocktail cruise instead of a dinner cruise. We opted for Pride of Maui because it was a big boat and was the closest to Wailea, where we were staying....More

We signed up for the AM Molokini and Turtle town snorkel tour but that wasn't where we went. Instead we were informed, after leaving the dock mind you, that we had to go to an alternative spot to snorkel instead of Molokini. I understand weather...More

We booked our afternoon snorkel tour to turtle town but because of choppy water the captain of the Pride of Maui elected to take our tour to Molokini Crater instead. No one was disappointed. The crew of the Pride of Maui are amazing. So friendly...More

We did a snorkeling trip on the Big Island. When I was a kid, we snorkeled from the beaches, but the surf was kind of heavy, so we ended up booking an excursion. We got to snorkel with spinner dolphins, which was fun, but then...More

I will tell you why you should snorkel on your own at the end, but I will start by saying the crew was very friendly and it was just as described—free snorkel gear, slide on the boat, open bar, food. The day started off uncomfortably...More

Fantastic value. We booked an afternoon tour and were able to snorkel the Molokini crater. Takako Medeiros and the entire crew went out of their way to accommodate hesitant, first time snorkelers. The price included everything you need plus a meal and open bar. We...More

We booked an all day trip 8-2 on the Leilani ship. Apparently conditions weren’t optimal, so we only stopped at molokini instead of another location to view turtles and snorkel, and to “spot” dolphins. We paid quite a bit more to be able to snorkel...More

Aloha! We are sorry to hear you were not completely satisfied with your trip, and that the weather wasn’t ideal. We do mention on the website, and in the email confirmation, that each location is weather dependent. We've unfortunately seen a fair share of unpleasant...More

I've been on many different sunset cruises, and this experience was one of the better ones. Cruise departed and arrived back exactly at the times they said they would. The open bar and food was exactly what they said it would be, however the food...More

The pride of Maui snorkeling trip was a really good time! They provided good food options, drinks and snorkeling gear. The boat ride took us to crater rock (can’t remember the exact name) but it’s rare to go there according to the captian. It was...More
