Outstanding outing. We did the 5 1/2 hour snorkel tour with Captain Nick and TJ. They were wonderfully informative about the areas we visited and had terrific senses of humor. One of our group of 6 is handicapped, and they were very helpful and accomodating. This was the first snorkeling trip for 3 of our group, and they took as... More

Snorkel or whale watch, no way to better feel the deep blue of the Pacific, the monumental heights of our mountainous island

Our Captain, Joe was outstanding and really made the trip enjoyable. He took a great deal of time making sure that everyone felt safe and was comfortable. The ocean was a bit rough so that did take away from the trip a little but we got to see lava caves, sea turtles, spinner and bottle nose dolphins and hear whales.... More

This trip was AMAZING for the boat ride, ok for the snorkeling, and definitely not for the faint of heart. Nick and TJ were AWESOME - they navigated the huge waves and rocky coastline very well and kept everyone safe and comfortable. My wife and I had a BLAST but taking our 8-yr old daughter felt like a lapse in... More

Saw lots of bright colorful fish on 5 1/2 snorkeling trip ! Nick & DJ were AWESOME guides and provided tons of useful info along the way... This is a MUST for snorkeling on Maui !!! AAAAA+++++.. They also provided a great breakfast and lunch as well.... As a tip...if you book through hotel you can save money using concierge.

We just went on this trip yesterday and had a blast! This is definately not a "sit back and relax" type of boat trip. It was a windy but mostly sunny day and the ride from one snorkeling spot to the next was wet, windy and at times wild. It was just the kind of adventure we were looking for... More

We went in early April, a mom and two kids, 12 and 7. Took the 5.5 hour trip. We were treated very well by the crew, Jeremy and ___(blanking now..., sorry). They were enthusiastic, friendly and encouraging, VERY kind to my kids. I noticed that they were very kind to the others on the boat, most of whom did not... More

This is our second trip with Blue Water. On both trips we saw all sorts of sea life: whales, dolphins, turtles and so many fish. We booked the snorkel trip to Molokini both times and were not disappointed either. The first it was very bumpy, but today nothing but smooth sailing. We encountered a large male humpback breaching four or... More

The Molokini Express could have been a great experience under other circumstances. When booked by the hotel concierge, they asked if I had any back problems which was reasonable. The two young men that ran the excursion that day were competent and mainly professional. The problem was that with somewhat rough seas the pilot made a pointed effort to give... More

Thrill seekers and budding geologists - this is the tour for you! This was definitely a highlight of our trip to Maui. Seth and TJ were excellent guides. This is the only tour that takes you to the lava caves. Absolutely a must do, unless you are afraid of some waves. It does get rough out there but manageable even... More
