When we make our annual pilgrimage to the island of Maui we always include a trip with Maui adventure cruises. This last February we did the "Lanai Dolphin Adventure". We started the day of right by seeing many humpback whales on the way to our snorkeling sites. The snorkeling wasn't spectacular, but it was still fun. Then, after snorkeling we... More

We went on this trip two years ago when we visited Maui and when we planned a trip back we knew that this was something we didn't want to miss. The captain and his assistant Gabe are so friendly and make the trip a memorable experience. The ride to Lanai is relaxing and if you are lucky you will see... More

Family liked this trip so much they asked to do it again 3 years later. Saw and followed a pod of dolphins for a while, some acrobatics from them. Skipper made a wise choice to not snorkel the preserve re wind exposure and water visibility but instead did 2 sites on the other side of the island. Both were great!... More

Small groups. Great crew (Jill / Gabe). Great snorkelling spots. We saw spinner dolphins, sea turtles, rays and had a great time doing it. Jill and Gabe created a good atmosphere on the boat. The company provided a gluten free lunch option for my wife who has Celiacs which was very much appreciated. Thanks Jill and Gabe!

My family and I have been to Maui on two different occasions, and have been on 9 different excursions. This was by far the worst. I read so many great reviews and that it sold out early that I had great expectations for this excursion. This excursion ended up being just a very long boat ride, and with the weather... More

Dear Jacqueline P, As I expressed to your friends in their previous review, this was not the trip for your group. I am unsure what your expectations were, but we have been running our same excursion for over 15 years. On Friday, June 13, the Hawaiian Islands were experiencing a south swell –great news for surfers, not so great for... More

Not the greatest excursion. The snorkeling was below average. I have snorkeled at 2 other Maui locations and this one was by far the worst. There were very few/if any fish and the reef lacked the color/variety I'd seen in other spots. The worst part about the snorkeling though, was that the there were no life jackets. In my party...

Dear Steven W, After reading your review, I realize our Lanai Landing Adventure was not the trip for you or the other 4 in your party. I think you would have been better off had you booked our Lanai Dolphin Adventure which focuses on finding and spending more time with dolphins, sharing information about the particular species sighted, and does...

Friendly knowledgeable crew led us on a 7 hour excursion of a lifetime. We got up close with a couple of pods of Spinner dolphins, snorkelled with 40' crystal clear waters seeing lots of fish and a turtle up close. They even gave lessons for those who hadn't snorkelled before! The lunch pack was sufficient and they provided plenty of... More

The crew was great. The experience was amazing. We did the lanai with landing. Snorkeling was great. Swam with three turtles and saw an octopus. Then the spinner dolphins. Box lunch was okay. But did it's job. Highly recommend this as an activity

Loved it!!! We did the 2 snorkelling sites and dolphins on the raft. The crew were awesome, the first mate RJ, apart from having the most amazing head of hair went out of his way and spoke to everyone on the raft. The Captain, sorry but I forget her name was also fantastic and also spoke to everyone. The dolphins... More

We did the Lanai landing and snorkeling excursion. Lanai was gorgeous and the snorkeling was phenomenal. At the time it was our first snorkeling experience. Captain Pat and Gabe made it memorable and explained everything. Gabe is also an excellent photographer, we have amazing photos with the spinners that he took. He was so funny and engaging, it made our... More
