My husband and I had the opportunity to schedule a sunset cocktail cruise with Alii Nui and absolutely loved it! The cruise included a generous appetizer spread, all of which were very good and open bar. They provide complimentary shuttle service to and from Maalaea Harbor so we both enjoyed a few Mai Tai's without having to worry about getting... More

I had such a great time snorkeling with this boat and crew. We had a very large group of friends and the crew made the experience absolutely incredible. They were very nice and attentive. Anything you could possibly think of or want, they were there to get it. Breakfast and lunch were served and champagne or beer was available. The... More

There was no "touristy" feeling to this evening that started with a pick up at our hotel. The captain and crew were outstanding with a sincerity hard to find in our modern crowded tours. The drinks were above the normal quality with no limit such as the 3-drink limit advertised on most short cruises. The cost was $40 less for... More

My mom works on the Alii Nui boat. If you go on the boat you might see her. Her name is Pam. This boat works very hard to keep you happy, and i am sure you will be when you go on this boat. The staff is friendly and they have food. They have chicken, chicken wings, salad, chips and... More

This was our second experience with Alii Nui, but not our last. Several years ago, we took the morning snorkeling trip and loved it. This year, we decided on the Sunset Dinner Cruise and were not disappointed. The Captain and crew were personable and professional. We felt at ease and relaxed the we tire time. The food was so good... More

We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary on a Alii Nui sunset cruise. The crew were very attentive and helpful. The apps were varied, nicely prepared and plentiful - including shrimp cocktail, crabmeat, pork tacos, and chicken satay. They served a nice selection of top shelf liquor, local craft beer and wines. Great views of the sunset made for a memorable... More

The Alii Nui Molokini crater and Turtle Town snorkel trip was recommended by our hotel staff at the Hotel Wailea. We left from a neighboring hotel, the Makena Golf Resort, at 9am and returned here around 1pm. Here are a few things to know: 1. If you leave from the Makena Hotel, the boat picks you up from the beach.... More

I was recently on a group trip to Maui and this was one of the highlights of our trip! The staff was excellent, food was delicious and they had all premium alcohol in the open bar.

My wife and I did a one tank SCUBA dive with Alii Nui at Molokini Crater Centre Reef. We were collected from our VRBO in Kaanapali and transported to the slip in Maalaea Harbour. Everybody completed the indemnity forms during the drive, both snorkelers and divers. The benefit of arriving with Alii Nui's transportation is that you board the vessel... More

My husband and I took the afternoon snorkel during our Honeymoon this past October. Ali Nui picked us up at our Resort and took us back which was great! All of the crew of Ali Nui are excellent! Very nice, personable, and all in a very genuine way. We had only around 12 others with us on the snorkel trip... More
