This was such an amazing experience!! My husband and I book our snorkeling excursion with Captain Woody after my cousin had told us about how great he was. This was the highlight of our honeymoon! We loved going out on the boat and being taken to the various locations. It was so much nicer to be on a private boat... More

My wife and I met Captain Woody on his birthday retreat at Andaz Maui. We talked with him for like 2 hours about Maui before he even mentioned he ran a boat here. My wife and I decided to book a private tour with him. Woody and his mate Kerstin were awesomely courteous and knowledgeable. We did snorkeling around the... More

Words can't sum up the incredible day snorkeling that Captain Woody set up for us. Amazing fish, scenery, and experience here in Maui. Customized for our young family, making each one of us feel special during our adventure. Woody's pboat is the perfect size to relax, hang out, and get up close and personal with dolphins (if you're lucky enough).... More

He took us to 3 different snorkeling spots where we saw: wild sharks, turtles and beautiful fish. He also let us jump off some rocks at one of the snorkeling spots. He is... More

We have now gone out with Captain Woody 4 or 5 times (in Nov/Dec 2014 & Feb/Mar 2015), and we always have a blast. He is very mellow and chill, but also very serious about safety and taking care of his awesome boat. Woody has shown us some great snorkeling spots from Honolua Bay to just off Kaanapali to Lanai...

Perfect day out on the water. Family of 6 adults fit comfortably. Deck hands were very knowledgeable about the island of Maui and the sea life we saw while snorkeling. Woody even dove in the water when I accidentally dropped my sunglasses. Highly recommended! Our family's favorite day on Maui.

This trip was the best day in Maui. We were able to snorkel, fish, and see dolphins. He really listened to what we wanted to do during our day out and made us feel safe and comfortable. Our teens enjoyed themselves. An experience we won't forget. I would highly recommend a day out with Captain Woody and his team.
