Maui sucks now for snorkeling. There is some wonderful places in the Lanai waters, that Captain Alex and Lynee took us too. I will always use them for this trip.

Best whale watching tour ever!!! We saw active whales (tail and pectoral fin slaps) and a huge pod of dolphins. Captain Jeff and Jennifer were awesome. We will be back as soon as they are on board again.
