Thank you Captain Woody and First Mate Kristen for an excellent day on the water. This trip was a once in a lifetime experience- swimming with the sea turtles and fish- AND watching so many whales flapping their fins, tails and breaching out of the water. But the best part of the trip was when the whales were swimming underneath... More

I've been on Captain Woody's trip a number of times. Each trip was a great experience. Wood and the Crew were always fun and knowledgeable of the local folklore. Woody keeps the number of guest to a minimum, ensuring great service. We were lucky enough to go out during whale season. What a thrill that was. whales breaching near and... More

My wife and I spent the day with Captain Woody and Kerstin. Great trip for many reasons. First of all its pretty much your own personal tour without a fleet of people crammed onto one boat. It is a much more relaxed experience than any other boat tour I have ever been on. Captain Woody is very knowledgeable of the... More

Woody and his crew were the best very nice and helpful while snorkeling. The tour around the island was cool because we learned a lot about the island while taking in its beauty. You can request many things and Woody will deliver or relax and let Woody lead the way. Either way it's going to be great!!!

While visiting Maui with my older children, we chartered with Captain Woody AGAIN. Absolutely wonderful. He takes out a small and specific number of clients for each charter.

I first traveled to Hawaii in March 2014 and chose to stay on the island of Maui. This of course was the perfect time to see the whales so I knew I wanted to spend some time out on the water. I browsed through NUMEROUS companies offering the best Maui experience imaginable and all I could think was how crowded... More
