Wife and I took this Saturday afternoon sail and dinner cruise. Full sails set, no motion sickness :) was a beautiful afternoon with whales and a awesome sunset. Our dinner was the best I have ever had on a boat or sailing dinner cruise. Our Canadian visitors were so fun to spend time with. Talking story, and sharing stories. I... More

We selected this trip because it had a hotel pick-up which is very convenient. Beautiful boat and fantastic crew. We went on a snorkelling trip with two stops at great snorkel sites. Unfortunately because of bad weather we didn't go on the scheduled stops but the captain and crew found suitable sites for the situation. We were a bit disappointed... More

Beautiful boat, delicious food, but most of all amazing services. Captain Nic and his crew couldn't have done more to show us a good time!

Its hard to impress me in the morning, but the entire tour exceeded expectations. First, the pick up was prompt and was a comfortable ride. The check in process was smooth and organized. A... More

This is a lovely trip on a beautiful boat. The Captain was knowledgeable, fun and friendly as were the crew. The food was excellent, the pace leisurely and views were beautiful. We encountered many whales, competition pods, mothers and calves and solo whales, many of whom provided acrobatic entertainment. The snorkeling at Molokini is suitable for beginners and very fun....

Beyond expectations! Great snorkeling in two different spots. Huka diving was great time. Our kids loved it. Saw a couple of whales. Crew was super friendly and very professional. Highly recommend! Will do it again for sure next time in Maui.

This 65 foot catamaran is appointed with first class luxuries. The crew, beverage, and food service for the sunset cruise were perfect. It is extremely stable and comfortable. The crew provides whatever you need, including a blanket if you get cold. Our captain took us out and we viewed a calf and mother, while the calf was leaping in the... More
