Went on the Teralani for a whale watch and snorkel trip this weekend, 2 days 2 trips. Had a great time with captain Pam and the crew. Beautiful boats, great crew, good food and an awesome time. Teralani is an A+ in my book!!

“Professional and Fun :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

Professional staff, very knowledgable and friendly. Just know that Snuba (very fun at $65, but only 30 minutes) and Video ($65) will be pitched to you. On our excursion we were able to see Sea Turtles and pretty reef. Food was good, light breakfast and hotdogs/hamburgers/bbq chicken were served. Open bar made the whale watching (oh did we see a lot!) fun.

“Exceptional Trip Great Memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

My granddaughter (17) wanted to go scuba diving when we visited Maui last week. My daughter was not very stoked about me taking her baby girl into the dangers of scuba diving so we compromised and settled on snuba. My daughter booked the trip on the Teralani, a 5 hour trip boasting of snorkeling, whale watching and food. I thought it was over priced at 220.00 for the two of us + the price of snuba to be collected on the trip.
I was very pleasantly surprised! The trip started out with a tasty fruit, muffin cake, coffee and juice breakfast. Yummy. We arrived at the snuba reef shortly. We snorkeled for a good amount of time before moving on to the snuba experience. WOW, turtles, exotic fish, a monk seal! We saw it all. Then a fabulous lunch of hamburgers, hotdogs, sprouts and tomatoes with all the fixings. YUMMY again! Whales galore! There was also an open bar flowing freely. I stuck with soda as of course my 17 yo granddaughter. My granddaughter had a grand experience and so did I. I give this trip a big 10!

“Exceeded our expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

My wife and I were visiting Maui for our Honeymoon in December. We didn't have time for a Sailing Tour but when our last day's Zip Line got canceled due to weather we hurried back to the resort to see if a last minute Sailing Tour was available. We were thrilled that we could join Teralani Sailing just 5 hours later.
The boat comes right up to the short with stairways that come down to the beach. The staff was very gracious with helping you get on the boat between the waves. I would caution you as you will get wet upon getting on/off boat. Not a problem for us and the staff does have everyone take things out of your pockets.
They are generous with the drinks and the finger foods fit our needs. We especially enjoyed the meatballs. We liked that you don't have to purchase anything once on the boat as food/drinks were included.

“Sailed right up to the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

Booked the sunset cruise. The staff was very friendly. Got the best pictures of humpback whales I have ever taken. Food was fresh...the usual veges, meatballs, bread, cheese, etc. definitely worth booking. I only regret not purchasing a shirt.
