I went on the morning West Maui snorkel, pushed off from the Whaler's Village on Ka'anapali Beach. It was a beautiful morning, with sunny, clear skies and light winds. While still on the sand, Eli, the crewman, clearly explained to all passengers the logistics of the day's trip, and how to safely board the catamaran in spite of small waves... More

We've done the Teralani morning/lunch snorkel trip every 2 years for the last 14 years. 2014 was the worst. Bad customer service. The used to offer shirts to buy, which we always did but they didn't even offer this time. We will be back in Maui this May and will not use the Teralani again. We are going to try... More

My friend and I did the premier snorkel cruise on Teralani 2, and it was such a great day!! We were given thorough and easy-to-understand safety instructions at the beginning of the cruise, and felt very informed all day. If you hadn't snorkelled before there is a snorkel lesson available. All snorkel equipment was provided, as was breakfast (fresh island... More

WE took a whale watching trip for 2 hours here. They offer 2 draft beers, soda, juices, and water with dry snacks. The boat ride is pleasant. We were aboard the Teralani 3. The crew was outstanding. We saw several whales blow water spouts. A few tails cresting the water and 2 whales jumping as far as they could out... More

I like boats, especially catamaran, like this one. The crew is professional and friendly and at this time of year, there are whales to be seen. One put on quite a performance. During whale season, the boat chases the whales (from a respectful distance) so the passengers can see them. I love the open bar: I had vodka and POG.... More
