Went today on the morning snorkeling cruise. The crew took us on the 'reverse tour' to minimize the amount of people encountered. Turtle town first then Molakini - with TONS of time in the water! The crew even let us have a spontaneous deep water swim with a photo op jumping competition on the way back to harbour! The crew... More

Captain Brad and his professional, down-to-earth, and knowledgeable crew made this an unforgettable experience! First, this is the only family-owned and operated charter in Maui and they all love what they do. These guys are funny, personable, and called each person on board by name and made sure you had what you needed. The Captain based his course on the... More

This snorkel trip is offered by so many but Cap'n Fish, Steve and Eli make this trip unique and fun. Our trip out was with only 18 others which allowed personal interaction with each of them. It really felt like we weren't just a conveyor belt of people out to the crater. Funny and knowledgeable made for a truly enjoyable... More

What a wonderful trip. We had 15 people on this 1/2 day snorkel trip including ourselves. A nice breakfast and lunch..knowledgeable crew who got in the water at each snorkel spot with us and made sure we saw all there was to see including pulling reef sharks from their resting spots so we could view them. An on board photographer... More

Not the fanciest ship, and most certainly not the fastest. If this is what you are looking for, go for one of the generic, boring, corporate owned "McSnorkel" tours. If you want a more "local" feeling and fun filled tour, with a Captain who knows what he is doing, and a crew of pranksters who truly care that you are... More

We went to turtle town first but the... More

If you want to skip the feeling of a time-share promotion...this is the tour for you and your mates. This is certainly the newest or the fastest ship headed out of the harbor but it sure is the most gentle and the most fun. Luckily for us, this was after the holiday and in between seasons so there were just... More

Hats off to the captain and crew. Captain Brad was great. Steve was very helpful with our 2 year old grandson. The entire crew was fun and our whole family very much enjoyed our trip to Turtle Town and both side of the Molokini Crater. We definately recommend these guys if you are looking for a truly fun experience.

This group of guys are the best, definitely recommend this snorkel trip. They were relaxed, fun and humorous. Good instructors for those who are new at snorkeling like myself. They also take photos for a fee of $55.00 , which was well worth it to me and my husband. I would so use this charter again, if I ever make... More

Our family had a fantastic time aboard the Mahana Nai"a. The crew was fabulous and really made the snorkeling adventure a memorable experience. The food and drink aboard the boat was excellent and we were surprised with the variety and quality of the food. The number of people aboard our boat also made it much better as it was not... More
