The Teralani was an amazing adventure with activities for children as well as adults. The crew experience, patience and commitment to safety was impressive. The service and the food on board was excellent and SNUBA rocks!!! Captain Eric was very friendly and professional and his crew was very cordial and attentive to our needs. Thanks so much to the SNUBA... More

What a great idea to do the Sunset Dinner cruise. When booking, we decided on the dinner option only to get the additional time in the ocean, thank goodness! We had many sightings of whales, even saw a couple calves and mothers breaching and we also saw quite a few Dolphins, some within 10 yards from the Catamaran. The crew... More

The sailing crew definitely makes a difference to a be a great sail or a mediocre sail. Our crew was rather disappointing. Being at the end of whale season we asked the captain if there were any whales or dolphins in the area. She states - "oh there were some dolphins about 10 minutes ago." In previous sails the crew...

We signed up for the dinner sunset sail for our second night in Maui. It was ok. Beachside boarding was as expected, so as many others have said, wear appropriate clothes, as there is a good chance you will get wet. Drinks were so-so, I thought the Mai Tais were too sweet. It was so windy that if you didn't... More

We were in Maui for a family reunion and one of the group activities was the sunset dinner cruise. We all met on the beach and clamored aboard the catamaran. Be prepared to get wet while boarding the boat as you have to walk through the surf to get aboard. I was prepared and wore shorts but others wore long... More

Family day on the ocean. We had a great time! The staff: Captain Pam along with Liz and Matt did a great job explaining the rules, keeping everyone happy and for the information shared about the whales. We were blessed to find a pod of whales. Got lots of great pictures too! Mahalo nui Teralani and Pam, Liz and Matt.... More

I know everyone has said it already.. but what makes this one of if not the best attraction in Maui is the staff. They are incredibly attentive and caring... and all of them were looking out for everyone on board. I'd highly recommend booking the SNUBA (it's an extra $69) but worth every penny.. by far the best thing we... More

Let me just start by saying from the moment we got on the staff was very friendly and helpful. Went to an amazing cove to snorkel and let me tell you that you will not be disappointed. We decided to try Snuba which is wonderful for anyone wanting to learn how to scuba dive without going to extreme. Basically the... More

This was our 3rd time going whale watching. We always go on the 7:30 am time slot, less people and great for seeing the whales! Staff is always nice, on time, and full of great whale facts! Boats are clean and well kept. Discount gift cards available at Costco! Bonus!!!

We took the sunset cocktail cruise. This was a great experience. They have no control over the clouds and the whales. We were 50%: many sightings of whales and a lot of clouds affecting the sunset. Let’s talk about what they do have control over. The drinks flowed freely and the appetizers were more than adequate (this was not a... More
