Small group was great! Got to know crew and captain. Service was very personable. Crew went out of their way to assist customers with any need. Would sign up again!

“A top notch experience with Aqua Adventures!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

The crew on the Aqua Adventures at Slip #51 was unbelievably friendly and accommodating, getting us set up with a continental breakfast upon arrival and some great instruction for those choosing snorkel or snuba. I was a little reluctant given that I heard about this company only through Trip Advisor but felt good knowing all other reviewers had a fantastic experience! We had a small party, only 7 total, but it was wonderful and felt more like taking the family out for a boating and snorkel trip. Molokini was simply amazing. We were able to get closer than we could imagine to the beautiful coral and the various fish swimming about! We were excited to follow several Moorish Idols through the reef, two Octopus who were mating, a ton of Orange Shoulder Tangs, Pink Tail Triggers, Blue Throat Triggers, Trumpet Fish and many Humu Triggers! What a dream!

Afterwards we headed back to Waimea Bay and swam with some Sea Turtles, which was incredible! Glen gave us a very close up encounter with an octopus which sealed off the trip perfectly! We headed back to the marina with a nice catered lunch and refreshments. A trip we will remember for a life time! Don't pass up this fabulous crew for another company!

Thank you Captain Darryl, Glen, and Anne at Aqua Adventures!

“Greatest Family Snorkel Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We have been to Molokini several times and have ridden most all of the larger boats to Molokini as well as the various snorkel spots on Maui however this was one of our best trips yet. Personalized service ,comfortable and lots FUN!!!. Took our 9 and 12 year old , crew and captain were fantastic , They know the best spots to take you as well as keep you safe. My son loved the Snuba. Don't waste your time on the bigger boats standing in lines for everything. They also do specialized charters for larger families or a bunch of friends that enjoy privacy.
Thanks for the great trip!!!

“Highlight of our trip to Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This boat is outstanding. The crew are so delightful but also knowledgeable and skilled. I have snorkeled at least 100 times throughout the Caribbean and decided to try snuba. Enjoyed it and now want to get Dive certified. Molikini was beautiful and this boat has the ideal spot. It wasn't crowded and we never felt rushed. The food was also excellent. The reefs were interesting and saw multiple turtles at turtle arches. I wish I could post pictures!

“A REALLY GREAT FAMILY FRIENDLY SNORKEL TRIP”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Mahalo to the Aqua Adventure snorkel trip to Molokini and Turtle arches. Had so much fun on this trip, Darryl and crew were great, my little 4 year old granddaughter was out there snorkeling at Molokini and Turtle Arches. The trip, the crew, the boat, the snorkeling, the food, everything was ONO. The boat is smaller and less crowded (30 guests). Yes they do charge extra for snuba but their fee is less than any of the other boats. I would highly recommend this to anyone and especially families with small children. Thank you Aqua Adventures!!
