Amazing Trip!

Great experience! Excellent staff, overall fantastic trip - would definitely recommend to all. We had a seven year old and a seventeen year old and they both loved it!

Very nice cruise. The food was good and so was the on board entertainment. We had dolphins follow the boat out of the harbor which was an extra treat. Great views of Lahaina and a friendly and helpful staff. I have a cousin that goes on and raves about the sunset cocktail cruise every time he goes to Maui. This... More

We went snorkeling at Molokini bay and Turtle Arches. The crew was pretty awesome. They were very knowledgeable and helpful. The breakfast they served was fantastic with fresh sweet pineapple and the lunch was pretty good as well. Literally the only reason I'm giving a 4 rating is that we were told we would be snorkeling for an hour at... More

This was the highlight of our vacation! We did the Ocean Spirit Snorkel tour that stops at two different places and sails back! It was beautiful and have no complaints! It had less people and didn't go to the busy Molokai crater. This was so relaxing and had great food! If you are going to do a snorkel tour, do... More

Traveling Along with very knowledgeable young adults, we cruised out towards Turtle Bay and came across a dolphin as well, good trip. The conservationist took the time to talk to the younger kids on the trip, very educational for me as well!

We participated in an adult only cocktail cruise last night on their catamaran, Ocean Spirit. This was one of the most enjoyable experiences we've had on our vacation, which is saying a lot. Seeing the sunset while you're out at sea is amazing. The boat isn't too crowded, and the staff are very engaging. The food and drinks are quite... More

This was the favorite activity for both myself and my husband in Maui. The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable. We spotted spinner Dolphins twice and the captain stopped the boat for everyone to watch them. We docked to snorkel on the island of Lanai, and it was beautiful. My first time snorkeling! I had so much fun and stayed... More

The day we went out was a beautiful clear day, (like most days). Crew was terrific! Felt genuine care for mammals and us humans. Had a great learning experience. Who knew you could actually see so many fish? Big and little. Would definitely do this again and again! Can't wait til my grandson gets big enough to really enjoy this//

I always use PWF when visiting Maui. I've tried other companies, in Hawaii and elsewhere. The naturalists are extremely knowledgeable and willing to share their knowledge and passion for sea life. After using other companies I really appreciate how well educated they are.

The boat was comfortable and well equipped with a very knowledgeable staff. They took us to a pod of spinner dolphins and we saw a nice chunk of the Island of Lanai and the rocky coastline. We snorkeled in three great spots and had a great lunch. I highly recommend taking the "Wild side Lanai cruise" with them.
