This is our 2nd trip to Maui, which included a 2nd trip on Lanai Dolphin Safari. This time, we brought 10 more people with us though! Many people in our group wanted to snuba instead of snorkel, and were heavily considering Molokini crater with other outfits. After reading Maui Revealed 2009 and 2012 versions, as well as Trip Advisor reviews,... More

OK sport fans, I am fresh off the boat, and by fresh, I mean two hours and one shower later fresh. I read about fifty reviews about this excursion on tripadvisor before signing up. There are always going to be folks who want everthing orderly and predictable, with no variation, no adventure. For you people, kindly sign up for one... More

This is one of the best snorkeling adventures I have ever enjoyed. The early start is well worth it and gets you out on the water when the water is calmest. It was wonderful being on a smaller boat (about 20 people) with a skipper who is thoroughly knowledgeable about the special spots of the area and goes the extra... More

My wife and I took this trip during our recent visit to Maui. Unfortunately the wind was blowing, so a trip around Lanai was not possible. But the captain still had three great places for us to snorkel with lots of interesting fish and coral and CLEAR water. On our return trip we came across some dolphins and the captain... More

My husband and I have been on many snorkel trips in Maui but Lanai Dolphin Safari is by far the BEST. We have been on Captain Dave's boat 4 times now and each is different and exciting. You will snorkel in amazing bays without all of the many tour boats. He takes you to sea caves, tunnels and in areas... More

The best one day adventure I've encountered in the 2 years I've lived on Maui is Captain David and Skipper Jeff's - Lanai Snorkeling Adventure. We started by viewing 2 incredible shipwrecks at sea, spotting a monk seal basking in the sun upon craggy rocks, playing with spinner dolphins in our boat's wake, climbing through lava tubes, exploring remote caves,...

Last year my husband and I went to Maui for the first time and the best part of our trip was going on the Safari Boat Excursions with Captain Dave and his crew. The pristine snorkeling, marine life, historical tour and overall FUN on this boat tour - was something we know we wanted to share with our three teenage... More
