I have been on several snorkel excursions ranging from cruise ship ones, to all inclusive resort ones, and I must say this was by far the best experience we have ever had. The staff is just amazing! The boat is brand new, the breakfast was delightful, the lunch and snacks were delicious, the drinks are great. They spare no expense... More

Enjoyed an early morning snorkel trip on Alii Nui. The Boat, Captain, Crew and Food were all absolutely amazing! I promise you will not be disappointed if you book any trip with this Company. They provided a 5 Star, unforgettable experience!!!

When we saw that we weren't going to be in a group of 6 for our snorkel trip to Molokini, we were a bit concerned - I've seen those huge boats with hundreds of tourists heading out to splash around with the fish. Then, we saw the boat, and all those concerns melted away. First, they pick you up at... More

On a recent trip to Maui we went on a Alii Nui sunset cruise. It was fantastic, the boat itself is beautiful and comfortable, all the staff were super friendly, and the included food & drink was great too. I was a bit apprehensive before going on the trip as the price is considerably higher then other sunset cruises in... More

We were in Maui celebrating our anniversary, our daughter was there for her honeymoon and took this sunset cruise. We were so pleased with our experience. The crew with Nick as the captain were all so great. Very friendly and professional. The food was great, we chose the appetizer and drinks cruise, leaves about 5:15 and returned about two hours...

This trip delivered what it promised...top service, food, drink and snorkeling. We had a great day and we were sorry to see it end! The staff was upbeat and helpful the whole time...always a smile! Don't miss this great opportunity (yes, it is expensive) but, you will be pleasantly surprised!

We had a wonderful day on the Alli Nui. This crew is one of the best that I have ever encountered. Personable, professional and hardworking. The boat is just beautiful and the ride itself is magical. Top notch food. The snorkeling is something that I will remember forever. Great equipment and the best spots on Maui. It's the the little... More

We we're recommended to the Ahi Nui dinner cruise from our concierge at The Four Seasons. We enjoyed the "upscale", adults only environment and the ship was beautiful and clean. The food, however, was mediocre (think banquet quality). There was a medium sized buffet with bland hummus, awful salad dressing, over cooked prime rib, and inedible sushi. The only thing... More
