This was by far our favorite excursion on our trip. Sage and Dave crewed the boat and kept us entertained. They got us out to where whales were surfacing and we saw about 3 different sets of them come up multiple times. Then we went closer to shore and snorkeled, seeing turtles, octopus, and lots of interesting fish. Well worth... More

Donnie and Dave went above and beyond! They made everyone feel comfortable and took us on an incredible sail/snorkel trip. Donnie even made us dinner reservations!We sailed with our party of 9 & EVERY person said it was their favorite part of our vacation!

This was such an incredible experience, hands down one of the best activities we did in Hawaii! Donnie and Sage were amazing guides, taking us through some of the coolest reefs around Maui. The snorkeling was fantastic and the reefs were teeming with all sorts of life. We swam right alongside giant majestic sea turtles, schools of fish, and other... More

This was a fantastic time. Donny and Jacob made it so fun and relaxed for us, while always aware of our safety. They absolutely understand middle school boys. The service in Wailea has been superb everywhere, but this crew felt the most authentic. This was absolutely the most fun, best managed time we had during our 10 day trip to... More

My wife and I sailed on the Hina five years ago the last time we were on Maui and enjoyed it so much we did it again this trip. We had a great time. We were lucky enough to be the only two guests on the trip. (At most the boat can carry 6 guests.). The weather was perfect. Donnie... More

For the second year Don and his crew have assisted us with a memorial at sea for my daughter. It has been a great comfort and has allowed us a very special way to remember her in a place that she loved. The crew is thoughtful, kind, and very helpful. We were able to view up close whales and other... More

Lonnie and Dannie provided expert service and a local character that made the trip special. A stark contrast to the larger commercial snorkeling packages. The sailing and paddling added a good dose of fun as well. Snorkeling locations were awesome with turtles and lots of marine life. The highlight was when Dannie spotted a group of dolphins further out in... More
