My girlfriend and I came to Maui in September and wanted to do something "out of the ordinary" so we signed up for the 5.5 hour tour with Blue Water Rafting. It was hands down the best day of the trip. Our Captain Aaron was AMAZING! He was knowledgeable, funny, and was a very good driver!! Will the first mate... More

Can not thank Joe & Chris enough!! What a ride, so much fun, laughter and things to see...and we saw everything!! From swimming around the reefs, cruising with the Dolphins and gliding alongside the majestic turtles. We didn't think it could get any better....until the watching the Humpback Whales on the way into shore! Fantastic morning with great commentary worth... More

Will and Aaron were our guides and they were great! They have a smaller boat so they can take us places that the bigger boats can't go. They feed you breakfast and lunch but the breakfast is a bit into the tour, so eat something small before you go. This was the best part of our trip.

Awesome 5.5 hour tour around some of the most unique parts of Maui and breathtaking scenery. Joe & Chris were a fantastic crew that enhanced the adventure and kept us safe on the sometimes rough waves and swells...Joe's choice of music tied in well with the experience! They took us to great snorkeling spots and super close up to the... More

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
