My first review... We took the Lanai snorkel day trip. My family of four including 2 teenagers, had a great time. Here is why we liked this outfit: Capt. John was a great communicator and thoughtful about a safe high quality trip for passengers. You should talk to him if you get the chance. He put us on a pod... More

5-stars to Captain Greg and his very attentive crew, Stephanie, Ben and Spencer on the Paragon II! We loved being on a smaller boat and the crew was amazing. Fewer passengers made it very easy to chat with the other folks on this very relaxed trip. I was especially glad of this when I saw the other, larger boats, stuffed... More

Intimate sail with a small group of people aboard a catamaran (Paragon II) with breakfast and lunch included. We got to snorkel the famed Molikini crater and see beautiful fish, coral and other sea creatures such as octopi and eels. The crew was professional and very service oriented. This is a once in a lifetime experience that is not to... More

Even though our trip to Molokini was rerouted due to high waves our adventure with Sail Maui was wonderful! The crew was so polite that before we made it to our snorkeling destination they were able to call every passenger by name. Sailing to our alternate destination I became saddened because I was really looking forward to snorkeling in a... More

We have sailed with Paragon for the last 13 years every time we visit Maui. The sailing is amazing and the crew is very helpful with getting everyone out to snorkel Molokini. It is a smaller group experience with is very nice because it allows them to give wonderful service. The breakfast is light and tasty and the lunch is... More

I liked it because it was a smaller boat, less people - intimate. The crew was great! We even saw dolphins! A memorable evening!

We had fun - but it was billed as a snorkel trip to Lanai and we were only in the water for 45 minutes. We saw a whole bunch of dolphins on the way, and I think that set us back. Lots of other boats in the bay by the time we arrived. Picnic lunch was good. Walked a ways... More

Management response:

LiHosk, We do our best to let passengers know how and where to find us! It is actually stated right on our brochure that we pick up at the Lahaina Harbor public loading dock and we encourage our concierges to also make this clear. We're sorry that you were confused by this, but it's standard practice for many boats, including... More

We are gone on many other snorkel/sailing trips in Maui before, all good, but the Paragon was the best for sailing and snorkeling. It was the only one the sailed both to and from the snorkeling spot; it was a smaller than the others which gave a more intimate experience; and the Captain finds private snorkeling spot so you're not...

This was a snorkel trip. We arrived at bay. Another boat was there w people in water. Capt. was irritated because crew member didn't find mooring quickly. She found it but he decided not to stay. Went to arranged beach. Long hot walk w surf very high so swimming not really possible. Supposed to have blue water swim on way... More

Management response:

Susan, We're really sorry you were disappointed in your snorkel trip with us! If the surf is very high the waves turn up lots of sediment in the bay, leaving it less than ideal for snorkeling. It sounds like visibility was very poor if the crew member was unable to quickly find the mooring. The other boats that snorkel in... More

Our captain was Bryan, crew was Danielle and Spencer. Couldn't ask for more attentive and interactive crew members. My kids are still talking about Spencer!! The snorkeling was also top notch. Amazing morning!!!
