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

The crew was helpful and entertaining. Went on the am half day trip. An added bonus was an up close humpback whale encounter, and continuous whale sightings all morning. They assisted with our little ones and got them in the water and enjoying the fish and turtles. Highly recommend. Plenty of food, beer and mai tais. Trip was not crowded... More

This was a half day Molokini/Turtle Town trip, although we stopped at an alternate turtle spot off Lahaina due to water conditions at Turtle Town. This operation is pretty bare bones when it comes to the food aspect of the trip - breakfast was fruit, pastry & juice, and there were no grilled burgers and dogs on this boat for... More

Excellent time with a friendly crew and plenty of food. Everbody seems to go to the same place on the first stop. The Captain and crew seemed to enjoy what they do and made sure everyone had a good time. Boat was not as crowded as some of the others I saw. It was a nice day on the water.

This was definitely the best part of our vacation. There were two of us couples and we went to Maui to have the time of our lives! We saw the most gorgeous colors of schools of fish, DOLPHINS, I was inches away from Sea Turtles, held an octopus and whales were everywhere! The captain was so funny, he pointed out... More
