Such a relaxing trip. Guides are very informative. This is a great foundation. Donate. Must save nature, habitats, animals. Highest recommendation for this event.

We went out on a Dolphin Watching tour. The boat ride was great, albeit crazy rocky at times, and the water was enchanting. Our tour was for three hours and after more than an hour on the water we began to think the few flying fish we'd seen would be our only encounter. Then it happened!! I and another tourist... More

We went on a snorkel trip with this crew, it was awesome! The crew was so friendly and helpful and nice. The food they served was very good. Its a 5 hr. trip to two different areas. We saw sea turtles, it was amazing. So glad we did it. It was a trip to remember.

We went on the snorkeling trip around Lanai and had a blast! The different reefs were extremely cool and the views of Lanai were gorgeous. The captain and his assistant were spectacular and made the trip go from being "good" to "fantastic". They were knowledgeable no only about the sea and the creatures that live in it but also the...

Had THE MOST delightful day with the 5-Star Crew aboard PWF today!!! Was overwhelmed with the high quality, personal service aboard this vessel & the Hawaiian hospitality & Aloha shown to each & every guest! The vessel was extremely clean & well laid out; including the on-board restrooms. The 90-minute snorkeling around the point at the lighthouse @ Lana'i was... More

Best experience ever. Great crew, great cause (profits go back to marine preservation), they use biodegradable cups, fantastic knowledge of marine life and Maui history, free lessons on board both educational and for snorkeling first timers. Food was great. I seriously couldn't pick one thing I didn't like. We did 3 tours with different companys and this was the best... More

We decided to book a cruise with PWF to go to Lahaina to watch the fireworks. We arrived at PWF early as instructed. It was somewhat hectic because there were at least three other boats checking people in and getting ready to leave from PWF. Our cruise had approximately 60 people on it. We were disappointed when we walked up... More

Took the morning trip with breakfast and lunch . Nice trip saw dolphins and anchored up in a little bay to snorkle .Expected to see more marine life when snorkling but maybe we were on a off day and that nature. Good service and well looked after.Very informative.

We took the sunrise whale watching tour and it was wonderful. Fun time watching, hearing and knowing about the humpbacks. They are a non-profit org and their prices are on the lower side, so we can help them in any small way that we can.
