We just had a wonderful day with Captain Woody. We enjoyed his stories and unsurpassed knowledge of the waters around Lahaina. The snorkeling was first rate. I think it's also important to mention that Captain Woody takes impeccable care of his boat and equipment. Nothing ruins a fun day faster than a broken down boat or second rate snorkeling gear....

Went on a day trip with Captain Woody and had an adventure. Within 10 minutes we were swimming with 11 sea turtles. The look on our teenagers faces was pure joy. It was truly amazing for novices like us to have that experience. Later we snorkeled a protected reef then had a great lunch. In late March the whales become... More

This was our 4th time visiting Maui and we always try to do something different on our visit that we haven't done before. While scouring the internet for things to do I stumbled on Captain Woodys website. Looked like a good time to us and that was the best decision we made. By far the highlight of our trip. There...

Recently chartered Capt Woody for some whale watching, snorkelling and fishing. Our group included seniors and Capt Woody and first mate EZ were very accommodating to ensure everyone enjoyed there day. We didn't have any luck fishing but had some close encounters with whales and some great snorkelling off Olowalu. Thanks Woody

Had an excellent day on the water with Woody and EZ. Swimming with turtles, cruising with dolphins, fishing, and settled in next to a whale pod. Over the top hospitality, and personal attention. Great stewardship of the marine world, while providing an up close and personal experience.

Our family of five highly recommends this trip! Woody and his first mate MJ were highly attentive and very anxious to spend the day helping us check off our wish list. It was an incredible day between the humpback whales, spinner dolphins, sea turtles, snorkelling on the reef and the enthusiasm and professionalism of Woody and MJ. Whale watching was... More

Had a great day today with Captain Woody and First Mate Eric. Or, as my 12-year old son said "it was the best day ever". Snorkeling, whale watching, and close-up Spinner dolphins! Also saw numerous sea turtles. The captain was courteous and knowledgeable. First mate Eric was GREAT with our 2 kids (9 and 12) and spent a lot of... More

We just got back from an awesome morning with Captain Woody and EZ! We had a group of 6, including two kids, on board and the Captain and Eric were great.

We decided to do things a little differently on our recent Maui trip and charter a boat, rather than go out on the standard snorkel/ whale watching trip. We have had great experiences on those trips, but this was next level. After doing some research and reading reviews, we decided to book with Captain Woody. My wife spoke with Captain... More
