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

We did the 4 hour snorkelling trip to Molokini and up and down the coast of Maui and it was awesome. Kim told us about the lava flows and rock formations along the way, we saw dolphins and beautiful colourful coral and a metric butt tonne of fish! I'd never snorkelled before and he explained it all as many times... More

Our family took the 2 hour snorkeling trip to Molokini today. Captain Kim and First mate TJ were awesome! The ride out to Molokini is a quick 15 minutes. We enjoyed snorkeling in the the beautiful, clear water with a huge variety of fish. We had Molokini all to ourselves, as the BlueWater trip leaves Kihei at 11:30 a.m., after... More

This was an amazing trip! We did the long snorkeling trip and I loved it! The staff was great and very knowledgeable about the islands. They gave us all kinds of great trivia and we saw some beautiful parts of Maui that we wouldn't have been able to see otherwise. I would suggest that you wear plenty of sunscreen and... More

5 1/2 hour trip with 4 kids age ranges 9-18, 3 girls, one boy. I was a little worried that they would either be bored or scared. They loved it! Nick and TJ gave us an adventure we will never forget. We not only saw turtles, eels, and beautiful coral, but they taught us about the islands, the geology of... More
