I am a regular visitor to Maui. This is by far one of my favorite action adventures. You get close to the underwater caves built from the lava formations. Captain Larry is a rip roaring rafter with great water skills. Don't forget to add the time to snorkel molokini. Outstanding

First trip to Maui and first time to snorkel in the Pacific. One word.....amazing. Captain Josh and First Mate Teddy were the best crew ever. We went to the southern most tip of Maui to see lava flows that were over 600 years old. No other companies are allowed to go to this area. We also snorkeled the back wall... More

When you want to return to a place or activity on holidays, you know that it's good. We took the 5 1/2 hour tour to the Kanaio Coast. The company is the only one licensed to go there so, you won't see all the splendours of the lava formations if you don't go with them. The seas were a little... More

I went on this tour on May 10 with my 11 year old girl and friends who also have an 11 year old. My friends had been on the tour last September and rated the trip as a must do!! It was :). Both the girls described this tour as more fun than Disneyland! I call it 'real' fun! We... More

We had our adventure raft on April 29 and we had opted for the Kanio/Molokini tour. Our friends cancelled their seats as they were concerned about seasickness after becoming queasy on a sunset cruise.this meant we had 3 couples on the raft with Captain Joe. Our day was quite windy and there were swells, but Joe advised us what type... More

After reading the negative reviews I was ready to cancel and forfeit the money. I have a back that hurts occasionally and I get motion sickness so I was definitely concerned. But, when it comes down to it, 32 bad reviews out of 936 total reviews is pretty good odds so I still decided to go and I am sooooo... More

My husband and I went on a Blue Water Rafting Trip on our honeymoon and it was definitely one of our favorite moments! The guides were awesome and the trip was FUN. It was much more adventurous than the usual snorkeling boats that take out 50+ people. Jumping the waves was awesome! I scraped up my knuckles holding on but... More

What a great experience! With my husband, we decided to take the Kanaio/Molokini tour (5 1/2hr). We had so much fun and we were really satisfied. We chose Blue Water Rafting upon recommendation from a guy we met at a coffee/sandwich place. It was a little hard in the morning (6:30 am check-in) but totally worth it. Our boat was... More

I have been on this trip twice and each time is exciting! They are easy to get to just head to the harbor in Kihei and pick up the boat after filling out the forms. The guides are experienced and great to be around. Riding in the boat can be strenuous and you need to hang on as it hits... More

Fantastic ride for anyone seeking a bit of adventure! Cruising up to the ancient lava tubes and Molokini was a wonderful experience. Sitting on the inflatable was thrilling, and the water clarity at Molokini is breathing taking. Captain Larry and First Mate Teddy were skilled, charismatic and entertaining. Definitely going to be repeat clients. And this one's for Larry...we've determined... More
