We took the six hour trip. It was an average trip in regards to Maui snorkel trips. The staff was decent but seemed to be just going through the motions. They dropped us off at the first snorkel site offshore, but the surf was rough and it was more hassle than enjoyment. Before we were dropped off on Lanai the... More

We had a wonderful experience with this tour operatror. Rod and Carl were awesome..They gave us an amazing amount of whale information as well as an up close experience with whales. A much smaller group on a boat which made the entire event better.

Captain Carl and 1st mate Rob were great. They spotted whales and seemed to know what they were thinking. They predicted what the whales would do at every turn. They took us to a beautiful cove for snorkeling. There were so many fish swimming around the reef. This was my first experience snorkeling. The guys made it very memorable. I... More

Loved this trip. They weren't out for my dollar. Captain and Licensed Naturalist were on the boat and extremely personable. I've done whale watches before on Maui, and this company was far superior. They taught us what and why the whales were doing, and the names of their motions. Then they dropped a microphone into the water and it was... More

We highly recommended the Lanai landing trip. Rob & Carl were super friendly and outgoing, they made everyone on the boat feel welcome and safe. We saw many whales , and dolphins like they promised. Snorkeling was great and the boat was very comfortable. The small group was more personable and a very good time. The lunch provided was the... More

This was a super excursion. We saw so many whales I lost count. We saw them breaching, and at one point about 5 or 6 males chasing a female. We got good photos of some tails and only stopped chasing this group because the seas were getting rough. We then turned to seek calmer waters and came upon a pod... More

Our group of 4 adults LOVED this trip! One adult in our group was prone to sea sickness but had NO issues and loved every minute of the trip. There's dry storage for your bags, even for as fast as you're going you don't get a lot of sea spray, unless the waters would be rough I suppose. The raft... More

We had an amazing time with Jake and Carrie! We saw so many whales, way more than expected! On our 2 hour trip we saw breaching whales, heard the whales sing and saw a pod of dolphins! Such an amazing time!

We did the 7 hour snorkel and lanai landing trip. Excellent staff of Rob and Captain Carl who were not only very professional but genuinely good people who engaged with everyone on board. Amazing conditions that day. On the way home we saw a lot of humpback whale activity and they stayed out an extra half hour much to the... More

The Crew, Boat and Weather were IMPECCABLE! The crew, Captain Troy and First Mate Robin were outstanding. Helpful and friendly. The boat was Clean and comfortable and the weather was amazing. Also this trip in particular takes you to one of the most pristine beaches left on Maui County, Hulopoe Beach on Lanai. They drop you off to explore the... More
