Captain Lacey and Sean made us feel right at home and went out of their way to make sure everyone on board had the... More

We just got back from the half day Lanai snorkel trip and had a fab time with our captains Sean and Rebecca ! Beautiful coral and lots of fish and even a huge pod of dolphins! I would recommend this tour and company to anyone coming to Maui.

My wife and I had a good experience with this company the skipper listened to what everyone wanted out of the day and delivered. Being in the middle of a pod of spinner dolphins was a great experience as well as swimming with the turtles.

The personal attention we received made this a spectacular trip! We did the half day Lanai snorkeling trip, and it was unparalleled with any of the other excursions we've ever done on Maui. The dolphins, fish and whales barely upstaged the expertise of our captain, Justine and crew, Sammi. They were helpful, professional, fun, incredibly knowledgeable, and were what made... More

What I learned about whale watching in Maui is that it perhaps doesn't matter that much which outfit you go with...so long as they offer a raft type vessel. We were booked with Pacific Whale Foundation, but they cancelled on us, so we walked over to the pier and booked for a 10 AM cruise with Slip 8. They were... More

Great tour and hosts. We were so close to the dolphins and saw multiple whales breach. Being on this type of boat was a wild but enjoyable experience.

Fantastic outing. The guides were fun and extremely knowledgeable about whales. The raft makes the trip more enjoyable since you feel closer to the whales.
