“Had the ultimate snorkel day with Ryan and Noni of Ultimate Snorkel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

A very professional but also very fun crew, Ryan and Noni are upbeat and informative and made our trip a dream come true. We spent the day with turtles and colorful fish at three differerent snorkel spots with stops before and after for many whale sightings and dolphins too! Captain Ryan runs a safe boat and both he and Noni were very aware of the safety and needs of their passengers. The food was also good - plenty to eat throughout the day to keep our energy high:) Great trip we would highly recommend to any Maui visitor!

“Snorkel tour with a side of whale watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Really enjoyed our time with Ryan and Noni. While the weather was a little grey and damp, the fact that we ended up having a close encounter with several whales (swam up to and under boat) made up for the weather. The boat is very intimate and much more fun than on a big catamaran or ship. Highly recommend and we chose them based on reviews on trip advisor. Well worth it.

“Amazing underwater adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

It was an excellent experience and our captain and naturalist were very helpful and knowledgeable. Great family activity, loved swimming with fish and turtles, saw some humpbacks as well as tonnes of dolphins. Over all a great day, can't wait to go back!

“Great day on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had a great day on the water with Ryan and Noni. They are great hosts, entertaining, funny and informative. They tailor the day based on the weather so every trip is different. We saw amazing wildlife including plenty of Humpback whales as it was December, with 2 breaches, and turtles and fish life. We snorkled in 2 places and Noni gets in the water with you to provide a tour and to point out wildlife. We also visited a ship wreck. We were provided a nice lunch and drinks. The boat is fast and lots of fun, and with only 16-18 people max it is very personalised, and they get you as close to the wildlife as possible, and they keep up with the whales, getting much closer than other boats. All round was a great day and we would definitley take the tour again next time in Maui. Thank you from Gareth and Celia.

“Great Snorkel Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Ditto the other great reviews......
On our way out we saw a whale breach the surface in the distance, the boat turned a little and we were there with the whale in less than 2 minutes. I have never heard such a sound in the ocean such as what happened next, the whales were talking to each other. Then it appeared on the surface and gave us a great show for starters. Then we were given another whale alert from another boat and in minutes we were there with an enormous mother whale with a child and a male whale as well.
Captain Ryan had bottle nose dolphins running on the bow on our way back, what a sight......
The snorkeling was great and I can not say enough good things about Captain Ryan and Noni.
My sister and I just came into Maui from Kauai where we took the Napali Coast - Forbidden Island Snorkel tour on a big boat with 40+ people and the personal feel that you get from this tour makes it a must do on your visit on Maui.
I will do this again on my next visit here !
