GREAT snorkeling and whale watching trips. Snorkling out at Moliniki is incredible and if your lucky enough to have a whale come up to the boat...wow. Water, sunning, swimming and lunch. Nice day early morning departure.

We hired out this boat to spread our sister's ashes. Captain CJ and his crew were so accommodating. Although the sea was very choppy, he found a calm patch for us to proceed with our memorial. We saw whales and dolphins and watching the sunset was superb! The cruise provided yummy food and plenty of drinks for all. Extremely friendly... More

We went on this tour and spent 4.5 of the 6 hours driving around before we stopped to snorkel. We weren't able to go to turtle town because of the swell and visibility, which was a huge disappointment for me. I wanted to end my tour at that point. The coral reef as ok but wasn't as great as I... More

My husband and I went on the Leilani yesterday (1/9/17) for some adventure! We had never been to Molokini before and as Maui locals, we figured it was about time. The crew (Captain CJ, Tanya, and Carlos) were the best! They were so witty and charismatic. They had awesome chemistry with each other, and over the course of the trip,... More

We joined captain CJ and crew on the Lelaini for the "Best day on Maui" tour. Starting at 8 am, we joined them at slip 68 on the harbor in Maalaea. We left harbor for Molokini and breakfast fruit/breads, juice and coffee were provided. We watched whales as we travelled out to the crater. We snorkeled the crater for a... More

We took he "Best day on Maui" tour which is 6hrs long - longest snorkel tour on Maui. The crew with Capt CJ were knowledgeable and friendly. They made our trip very fun! The time spent snorkeling is about 2-3 hours, but the water is cold so I don't think anyone could stand it much longer than that. We had... More

Wow wow wow!!!! What an enjoyable morning and afternoon spent aboard Leilani. Skipper CJ is just the right amount of laid back, affable & comedic; as my 16-year-old step-daughter said he is, "Super cool." The crew made a delicious BBQ meal, worked diligently to tend to our beverage and snorkeling needs and, even, entertained my two-year-old while everyone else snorkeled,... More

This was our 2nd trip to Molokini with this company, and this time we brought additional family members. We spent a lot of time trying to find the best deal, and eventually decided to stick with the boat we enjoyed so much on our first trip to Maui 3 years ago. So happy we made that decision - we absolutely... More

This was by far the highlight of our stay on Maui. We opted for the Best Day on Maui because it was slightly longer than any others (6hrs), providing us with more time to spot wildlife, 2 snorkelling stops, and small size. It didn't disappoint on any of those. It took us a few minutes to figure out where we... More
