“Took the 90 minute cruise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

If there are folks in your party that are not going to snorkel have them do this. The staff was very cordial and insightful. Divers went down and brought up items to display. We happened upon a monk seal and the crew was excited enough to pull out their own cameras. The seal was very obliging. Swam right up to the windows and let everyone take as many photos as they wanted. He was just as curious about us as we were of him. When we powered up he continued to swim along side the boat for about a quarter of a mile. Quite a rare treat. We stayed on the Kihei side of the island and went on the cruise prior to going to the Old Lahaina Luau. I enjoyed the trip enough to actually spring for the $10 photo they took upon boarding.

This was a fun experience and the hosts were great. Brian was really friendly with the kids as was the divers.

“Recommendation for Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We took this trip on April 14, 2014. The sun was out and bright which made the reefs very clear to see. Saw a lot of colorful fish in their natural habitat. We even got to see a turtle.

My only recommendation to staff is that they offer an "adults only" trip for those of us without kids. In our tour there was a little girl that cried and screamed while her parents ignored her. The screams were loud and piercing while echoing throughout the enclosed chamber. Had I known beforehand that children were coming on our tour I would have canceled. This kid did not stop crying and screaming the entire tour!

“Save your money and go to the Aquarium”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Other than the novelty of the boat itself, the experience was disappointing for our family. We saw some small fish, a sea star, the coral and a couple of turtles. I would not reccommend this to anyone. Your money is better spent going to the Aquarium.

“Fun for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

We took the hour tour. I was a bit surprised there was not a lot more fish. We did see a turtle. And some schools of trigger fish.

The divers brought some interesting sea life to the windows for closer inspection.

It was fun. The little kids appear to have fun.
