I enjoyed a snorkeling trip with Mauna Lani Sea Adventures. The crew were very friendly and helpful and all snorkeling gear was provided. Afterwards, sandwiches and snacks were provided and drinks were available at the bar onboard. It was all great fun especially seeing several sea turtles swimming in the coral.

Took the 9am-12n sail / snorkel and was excellent idea! Family of four with 15 and 20 year old kids. Great spacious sailboat, not too crowded (20 guests), professional reservations and excellent crew. Saw playful dolphins on ride out, snorkel wasn't great visibility (not their fault, obviously), equipment excellent, guides engaged with our kids (and others). Lovely sail home, and... More

The sunset sail is consistently one of the most beautiful and enjoyable experiences we have had in Hawaii. This was our 3rd sail and the crew was really hospitable. I went diving with this group a few years ago and it was very convenient if you are at Mauna Lani. If you are at another resort it would still be... More

We took the sunset cruise on the Winona and it was really a great experience! Met at the boat house (Mauna Lani shuttle takes you there) and then on a small raft out to the boat. Crew was great, boat was nice and spacious, and the drinks were included in the price. Snacks need a little boost, maybe more local... More

I really enjoyed my dives with Mauna Lani Sea Adventures. Prices feel steep, but everything in the area is pricey. These guys were worth the money. They are extremely nice people who genuinely care about your dive experience. The dive masters are very attentive and professional. The dive groups are small, so you never feel crowded or ignored. Their system... More

I have been diving with Mauna Lani Sea adventures for about 5 years. In fact, Mauna Lani has become a second home for our family. We often visit 2-3 times per year. One of the main reasons that I look forward to our trips is diving with the Mauna Lani Sea Adventures team. Whether it is Gary, Steve, Spike, Chris... More

My husband and I had never been scuba diving before, so we took the introductory dive course and then went on a 2nd dive a few days later, and both were wonderful experiences. The instructors were patient and clearly explained everything to us and made us feel very comfortable. We would definitely reccomend them!!

We booked a whale watch with Mauna Lani Sea Adventures because it was a 5 min walk from our room at the resort. However, I had read many positive reviews on Trip Advisor before our trip. It was just so convenient to walk over and not have to go for a long shuttle ride to reach boarding location. Captain Don... More

We dive with Mauna Lani Sea Adventures every time we are on the Big Island, which is yearly. They are extremely professional, their expertise is unsurpassed, safety is their priority, and the dives are extraordinary. Steve, Gary and Skip will give you a diving experience you will not forget.
