Really great service to the Molokini Crater! It's around 2 hours of snorkeling, and they'll take you to all the 3 gorgeous sites of the Molokini Crater! Save your camera batteries for the 3rd site, as the 3rd site for me is the best! A gorgeous drop-off, with a giant mountain of corals with fishes, and visibility all the way... More

We did the Molokini Express tour. This was so much fun!!!!!!!! The to Molokini and back was the best. We have only snorkeled one other time. This short trip was perfect for us. Just enough time to enjoy all the underwater beauty, and not too long that we didn't get tired. I sat in the front and really had a... More

We did the 3 hour trip with a small group which made it great for an exclusive trip. Having visited Disneyland the week before, their rollercoasters were nothing compared to riding up and down the waves on the raft. My young daughter had her hands in the air and cackled like a hyena all the way. Captain Larry was a... More

We saw pygmy (false killer whales) which are very rare on the amazing trip. Probably the best excursion I have ever been on! The captain got us close, I mean REALLY close. Everything else was great too, dolphins, great snorkeling, caves, spectacular snorkeling and deluxe deli style sandwitch + snacks

The excursion reservationist wasn't the most friendly person to deal with, but the crew definitely made up for that. Captain Joe and his deckhand (Will) were awesome. We had a small group of adventurous, thrill-seeking individuals, so they made sure we had fun hopping the waves while turning up the tunes. We took the 4-hour tour, which still allowed us... More

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
