Hats off to Chris and Kim - both experts at what they do. Chris with his geology class and Kim at the helm. More than just a raft trip. Exciting and interesting history lesson on volcanoes and the seas around Maui. Snorkeling was great, riding the elevator (plume of water that rises 12 ft as the waves hit the rocks... More

Let me start off by saying that this review is of the company and their reservation process and not the actual boating excursions as we did not go on one with them. I also don't usually write reviews but this was such a mess I thought people should know. Back in mid-August, I reserved the molokini express tour for my... More

I opted for this "rafting" experience, as it offered an alternative to the typical, and overdone, catamaran tours. Rafting basically meant a pontoon boat - and we LOVED it! The journey is definitely not for the faint of heart. The bumps and waves are very jolt-y, but super fun if you're the adventurous type. Our guide and captain were friendly,... More

We went on the 5 1/2 hour excursion to see the sea caves and snorkel. Captain Kim and Chris were so patient - even when I had a panic attack not being able to breathe in the snorkel. They got me relaxed and out there enjoying the water. We saw dolphins, tons of fish, turtles, sea caverns and a part... More

Please please PLEASE pay attention to the bad reviews on here. We were vacationing in Maui and wanted to snorkel...my husband and I are both adventureous people and thought this would be a good excursion as it promised for more "adventure" than a catamaran and access to spots we wouldn't be able to see otherwise. WRONG. First of all, I... More

My wife and I did the 5.5 hour lava/snorkeling tour, and I have to say it was probably the best thing we did on Maui. Joe (? I think... sorry) and Mal were excellent, engaging, and amusing guides. We snorkled in maybe 4 or 5 different locations and toured the most recent of the Maui lava flows. A couple bits... More

I am a Maui local and live in Kihei. My son and I took the Kanaio coast and Molokini Island Blue Water Rafting Tour with Captain Kim and first Mate JT. I would highly recommend this tour to locales and visitors. The view and ride along the coastline from the Kihei Boat Ramp to Kanaio (the southern tip of Maui)... More

Captain Aaron was amazing driving the boat. He has real skill handling the waves. I was surprised at how close we got to the lava and caves and was totally interested to learn something new. The ride was half the fun. We had 10 minutes with dolphins close enough to touch (we didn't of course). The music was fun and... More

We have been to Maui well over a dozen times and this activity we booked has been our favorite yet! We really like how it was a small group of people and the guide was awesome! We took the Kanaio Coast snorkeling tour. The scenery was gorgeous. And the boat ride was like an extended amusement ride, it was fast,... More

I've done this at least 9 times now on trips to Hawaii and they never cease to amaze me with their great service and ability to find as many "surface active" whales as possible! I have gone with other tours and not seen half the whales that I have with Blue Water Rafting. We will be returning to Maui the... More
