We had a great day of snorkeling with Capt. Woody. Our nine year old was very nervous about snorkeling, but his crew got her right into the water and she loved it. We saw sea turtles and lots of different fish. The whole crew was very accommodating and helpful the entire trip. We would definitely go back again.

We went out with Captain Woody on 7/15/16 and had the best day. Captain Woody tailors the trip to what you want...snorkeling, fishing, etc. Very relaxing trip. Woody and Danny kept safety first. My kids said they had so much fun and they loved lunch (which is saying a lot). Danny was super polite and really took great care of... More

Family of four from sydney - booked via email several months ago - smooth process - we all had a great time - very nice boat and friendly crew - snorkelled with about 30 turtles which was awesome - obviously more expensive than going with group tour but you get what u pay for. Would definitely go back next time... More

If you come to Maui, you have to go out with Captain Woody and crew. This was our 3rd trip with him and it never gets old. He knows the island history, sea life, geography like no other. Great for families, couples....snorkeling, sightseeing, swimming, fishing, you name it. We ran into a pod of dolphins and my kids went crazy... More

Captain Woody & Danny showed us our greatest day in Hawaii. We did it all, went fishing, caught a few cool ones, saw a whale show extraordinaire, dolphins & swam with sea turtles - no stone left unturned...we didn't want a cheesy tour boat excursion & this was perfect!
