My husband and I did not not exactly what to expect when we chose the whale watching tour. We wanted a tour that was educational too. We figured it would depend on the number of whales in the area etc... We had no idea that there were thousands of whales in the bay. Whale soup is what they called it.... More

Our family did the snorkeling trip to Lanai today, 7/27/2015. First time snorkeling for all of us. The crew was terrific all the way around. Helpful, informative, engaged and professional. Clearly, safety was their first concern, but they also balanced that with the fun aspect. They took roll call and head count after each return to the boat. The BBQ... More

We had a wonderful day snorkelling at Lanai and on the return some really close encounters with the fabulous sea turtles. Definitely a highlight of our trip. The boat had good facilities and friendly and knowledgeable staff, great bbq style lunch. The sea turtles were amazing to snorkel alongside and there weren't too many people on our tour. Would definitely... More

Aside from the island of Maui being one of the most beautiful places on earth, I must say snorkeling at the Molokini crater was fantastic! My family and I truly enjoyed the trip, but it wouldn't have been possible if not for the GREAT crew; Lily and Tommy, and Gabrielle. Top it off with a rare sighting of both a... More

A must see location. This is well designed location with wonderful sea life. I was fortunate to have been invited into the shark tank. It is worth the trouble/cost. A great place for individuals and groups.

We were very happy about our decision to go whale watching with this company. It was the end of April- a bit out of the season, so our expectations weren’t too high. We decided to go for the “early bird” option as we had been jet -lagged anyway and we were really lucky. We saw a mom with her baby... More

We were a group of 12 and when we booked were quite rightly advised that the tables seat four as they are bolted to the deck. We were happy to be split into three groups of four and our tables were adjacent to each other. A good tip is to arrive at the checkin booth at least 30 minutes early,... More

Me and my wife were very impressed with the service. My wife was 6-months pregnant when we did snorkeling, and the crew have done an excellent job in assisting my wife down and up the ladder. Not only that, the crew are very friendly. I cant stress it enough but the crew had put emphasis on the snorkelers' safety as... More
