We had a great time today on the Leilani with Capt. CJ, Megan and Josh! Started the morning with multiple sitings of humpback whales - including one that swam under our boat and posed for close-up shots when he surfaced right next to us! Good continental breakfast on our trip out to Molokini, where the snorkeling was great! Then on... More

We did in 2011.I just did a little snorkeling, I do not dive....the explanations are ok...I expected a little more, but htheu were fine, The sea was brave that day! The tour is nice, expected less people...but Kihei is really crowded....think twice before staying there if you´re not a crowd fan, but the tour is great.

We book the 6 hour Best Day in Maui tour. I thought it was the right choice. There were two stops for snorkeling and the rest of the time we hung out on the upper deck. There were only about 20 people on the tour so it was a very comfortable size. Captain CJ and the crew Josh and Alex... More

We booked the best day in Maui tour but I guess they didn't sell enough tickets so they cancelled 18 hours before the trip. We were booked on the pride of Maui, which was nice but one hour shorter trip without the dolphin excursion. I can't say this is a bad tour but don't trust them. You need to make... More

We did the "best day on Maui" tour but on the smaller Leilani boat. This boat takes only 39 people so it is a much smaller group. Our captain was friendly and knowledgeable and we all felt very safe on this boat. Since we were on the smaller boat, we were able to do more than the larger boats. We... More

We took the Leilani cruise (50 ft yacht) for the 6 hour excursion. I have to say that we were very disappointed that there were barely any fish to see snorkeling at Molokini! Then we went to the turtle cove and only saw one turtle! Despite that, we did have a great time! The capt. was great but one of... More

Captain CJ, Josh and Brendon gave us an awesome experience on the Leilani. From start to finish on our snorkel trip for four seniors was magical. They gave expert instructions, their equipment was superior, and they were the perfect host. We booked online, and it was a breeze. We enjoyed the smaller boat experience.

My husband and I had a great time on the Leilani for the Best Day on Maui Tour, August '15. The small size of the group and fun, knowledgeable staff made the day fantastic even with the few rain showers we experienced. (Who cares about rain when you're already in the water, right?) We really appreciated doing the Molokini/Turtle Town... More
