This was the best decision we made all week to go on the dinner cruise! We had light to almost no winds and calm seas. They picked us up at our condo! Staff was fantastic! Sooo much food! Ribs, fish, prime rib, shrimp cocktail! The boat is beautiful! OMG - memories of a beautiful evening in Maui to take home... More

Door to door service is a a gift. The crew was very professional and well organized. Food and beverage selection was great. The captain even let a seasick passenger man the helm to help her fight the motion sickness. The snorkeling at Molikini was a treat. Great trip and highly recommended. Keep in mind it isn't the cheapest but it... More

Wanted to do a snorkel trip to Molokini during our stay in Maui. We had a choice of many different boats and decided to go a bit more upscale and chose the Alii Nui. We were not disappointed! We did not want a boat that was packed with people or filled with a lot of children. This boat also offered... More

My husband and I had the great experience of traveling on the Alii Nui to Molokai for snorkeling on our recent trip to Maui. The great service started with making the phone reservations with Dorothy. She was friendly, courteous and informative, making the decision to book this trip very easy. Bella picked us up at our condo in the early... More

We have been on many snorkeling, whale watching boat excursions over the years. This was the very best trip ever! The staff are top notch, the food was great starting with a hot breakfast to the fresh chocolate chip cookies, there was plenty of snorkeling equipment. The snorkeling was great, I saw more turtles than ever before and of course... More

By far the best sunset sail we've ever been on including out of Kauai, Kona and others here in Maui. From the crew including Capt. Kawika, to our driver/crew member Matt and all the others were fantastic. Great customer service, great food and beverages. An exceptional experience and the final touch near the end was an offering of a warm... More

Having done many of these types of activities, I can say with some authority that bar none, this snorkeling cruise crew provided the best, most attentive service we have ever had. The crew didn't wait for you to ask for things; they actively solicited food, drinks, towels, equipment, etc. They also showed great patience with a group that had never... More
