We booked this trip knowing that there would be less people than the big catamaran trips and were very pleased we did so. We had only one other family on board with us and had a personalized experience. Captain Larry played great music and was very friendly, informative and funny. We saw turtles, dolphins and learned a lot about the... More

My husband and I did the 5.5 hr trip with Captain Aaron and Teddy. They were both really friendly and helpful. We really appreciated how they were flexible and would try different snorkels spots that other boats weren't trying. We got to swim the back and front sides of Molokini, as well as two other spots, and were lucky enough... More

Blue Water offers not only the usual molokini snorkeling experience but is also an amazing rafting experience down the coast of Maui close to channel with big island in what were today pretty rough water - at least for us. That was great. Molokini lived up to expectations which were very high. It is incredible and you feel like swimming... More

My husband and I have been on a few boat trips to Molokini but never to the Kanaio Coast. So we wanted to see this side of the island plus NOT be on a boat with more that 24 people. Capt. Aaron and mate Will were awesome. The swells were very high (as a result of a storm from New... More

We were given a tip by some friends in Hawaii to go with these guys and it was great. Their boat is the perfect size and The crew (Larry and Jackie in our case) were skilled, super friendly and knowledgable. We took the 5 hour tour (which was recommended) and it was perfect - several snorkeling stops as well as... More

Josh and Chris made sure that everyone had a great time on the rafting trip! They were very knowledgeable about the lava cliffs and caves, took us to some amazing sites, and they were fun and upbeat. It was our family's first time snorkeling and they gave a quick safety/instruction talk and helped with the gear. We snorkeled at 2... More

We had a blast with Blue Water Rafting. Captain Larry and Jackie were our guides and they were very knowledgeable, providing history on the islands, and helpful with providing instructions on the provided snorkel gear (we were already experienced snorkelers, but it was good to see that they made sure their guests knew the proper way to use the gear)....

Highly recommend this tour and rafting company! We took a 4 hour rafting tour of the lava flows and snorkeling with Erin and Will as our crew. They were fantastic! They really made our trip a great family memory. They provided a little history, geology about Maui in an entertaining way that engaged everyone on the boat. Our last stop... More
