Joe & crew are fantastic - very knowledgeable, constantly checking-in to ensure all the passengers are well looked after. The boat , the Hokua (a 40ft power catamaran has 2 levels - the top level accommodates 6 passengers). We left from Maalaea Harbor around 7am visiting both Molokini Crater & "Turtle Arches". On the approx. 1 hr ride to Molokini,... More

Great snorkel and whale watch! We live on Maui and went on this excursion yesterday and loved it! The weather wasn't the most cooperative but Capt. CJ made a good call to go to a different snorkel spot that was safe and very good! I saw for the first time a " turtle cleaning station" ! The crew were very... More

We chartered a three-and-a-half hour snorkel cruise for the nine people in our wedding party. Captain CJ, Tonya and Josh made the trip fun and memorable. The crew was knowledgeable and entertaining - and catered to the varying degrees of snorkeling experience in our group. We were all very happy with the location they chose for snorkeling and with the... More

Our group of 24 rented out the Leilani for the afternoon and it was the highlight of the trip. Captain CJ and his crew, Meghan and Ross, were knowable about the local area and wildlife. They took us to a great snorkling spot and made even our reluctant swimmers comfortable enough to give it a try. We saw sea turtles,... More

This snorkeling trip was so good my kids are still talking about how awesome it was two days later. Captain CJ and his crew really made the experience even better with how great they were. If you are coming to Maui this is definately the snorkeling trip you need to book

We got lucky and took a boat that had very few people on it. We saw whales almost instantly after leaving. The two snorkel areas (Molikini and turtle Town) were excellent. Our crew was knowledgable and friendly and funny. The food was perfect too-grilling! We had a great time and would do this again in a heartbeat.

We had a great day trip with the pacific whaling conservation group. We left early and had a light breakfast and a lunch on board. The crew and captain were awesome very knowledgeable and super helpful. We were able to see several species of fish and turtles. We were in the water listening to dolphins close by. A stunning trip.

Our trip was on Nov 20,2014 for the 6 hour trip to Molokini as well as Turtle stop. We began in the morning and the crew was amazing and hilarious. Captain CJ was an excellent captain and was very knowledgeable in all things ocean and Maui. Our pre-teen boys quizzed him like nothing else. The entire crew was very helpful... More
