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

I definitely recommend this tour! It's worth it... the staff is very experienced, friendly and helpful. We went on this tour a few days ago and it was fantastic!! You can snorkel, snuba or scuba dive or just go for the beautiful cruise to Molokini island. My daughter went for the "snuba" and she loved it! You can do both... More

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
