We went for the five hours snorkeling on the Lani Kai. Unfortunately, it was raining that day. However the captain and staff made the best of the situation! All were amazingly friendly, and so helpful. The hostility was top notch! Saw lots of whales, some turtles and fish. Best part, was Marcela our SNUBA instructor. She was so funny, but... More

This smaller boat (as apposed to 150 people, 60) is excellent. The captain was a perfect host, conducting a whale watch experience as well as great snorkeling destinations. Swimming with the fishes and turtles made this a terrific choice among the many vendors offering day trips. From 7 am - 12 pm the crew bend backwards to ensure your adventure... More

Advertised as a five hour snorkel trip to Molokini Crater and Turtle Town with less people. We never ended up going to either. The captain never told us why. He kept touting the greatness of the other two spots we did end up going. We finally saw 1 turtle swimming away from us. That was it! We had far better... More

My wife wanted to go on a whale watching cruise and I wanted to snorkel and Snuba. With this trip we got all three. Food was good and Captain Mark makes a mean Mai Tai for the trip back too.

Boat – perfect size. We were able to walk around, sit where we wanted, pose for pictures and simply relax. There were about two dozen passengers on our trip, but even if there were another dozen more, it still would have been comfortable and roomy. Two bathrooms (never a wait), two fresh water shower hoses, a slide, several different areas... More

We went on a beautiful Sunday morning. Lucky for us, it happened to be very calm that day, practically no wind. We did the Snuba at the Molokini site. This was our first time doing "snuba". Our instructor/guide was very experienced and made it easy for all of us. We stayed down about 30 minutes. WOW, the water was so... More

Went yesterday on the Lani Kai and spent 5 amazing hours with the crew. Captain Marc made the call before we got out of the harbour not to go to Molokini due to less than desirable conditions -which I was glad he did - who needs to ride the vomit comet. Headed towards the west side of Maui and did... More
