We again had the pleasure of joining the Sea Maui crew on a memorable sunset cruise. We have been coming to Maui for about 5 years and on the first year booked a snorkeling cruise with Sea Maui. We have not looked at booking with another company since that first trip. Not only is the crew always a delight but they are also concerned for the safety of their passengers. Last night’s crew Aaron, Carrie, Nick and Mikey were no exception, they were fantastic. We always had everything we needed including food and beverages. The whales were very active which added to the excitement. If you are looking for a memorable whale watching or sunset cruise in Maui, I highly recommend Sea Maui.

It was easy to book, I got a callback from a friendly employee to double check our reservation and if we had any dietary needs so food could be prepared with that in mind.
The onboard crew was a well-oiled machine, friendly, and professional. We saw all the wildlife we expected to see. The excursion was safe and fun, and the foods and drinks were delicious.
I’d highly recommend using this company for excursions to enhance your vacation time on Maui.

We have lived on Maui for 15 years and gone on many snorkeling and whale watching trips. This was one of the best!! First, the crew is extremely courteous, friendly, and they provide outstanding service. The boat is spacious, clean, beautifully designed for comfort, safety, and a fun ride through the ocean. Delicious breakfast and lunch and a bar serving up plenty of refreshing cocktails. The snorkel gear is high quality and they have snuba for an additional fee. We got our tickets at an auction to help the local high school so really appreciate that generosity. The whole experience was top notch. We will definitely be going again and have been telling all our friends about it!! Thank you SeaMaui

Disclaimer - The weather did not cooperate and we were not able to actually do the surf lesson we signed up for. But please keep reading!

We signed the whole family up for surf lessons on Kaanapali Beach. We showed up for our time and the staff were very up front with us that the waves were simply not big enough. They explained that the adults would be unlikely to get up at all and the kids had maybe a 50/50 shot. They offered to let us reschedule, do just the kids, or get a refund. We had one more day on the island so we rescheduled. Unfortunately, the next day we were again not able to go out due to not enough surf (combined with strong current). They refunded our fees in full.

While we were disappointed to not get to do the surfing lessons, we were beyond impressed with the integrity of the company to tell us that we would have a bad experience and to offer to refund our money. We have never surfed, and they could easily have taken us out and portrayed it as our fault or just bad luck that we couldn't get up. Whenever we come back we will go straight to Sea Maui to schedule our surf lessons!

This was a 3 1/2 hour tour from Whaler's Village area of Ka'anapali Bay. so, not quite a full 1/2 day, if you wanted something a little shorter. The price was right, easy to sign up. Crew were friendly and knowledgeable and top notch! Bean bag seats on the catamaran - fun!, soft drinks included before snorkeling and liquor after along with a terrific snack from a local chef. Snorkel equipment clean & well maintained. Had plenty of time to snorkel and see all kinds of colorful fish & sea turtles. Pool noodles provided for extra buoyancy. We felt completely safe and had a blast!! Highly recommend!

Went on the live music sunset cruise with Sea Maui. Glad we chose this cruise, you could tell all the other sunset cruises out there weren’t having as much fun as we were. The crew was top notch, we drank cocktails and saw whales and a beautiful sunset. Really couldn’t have asked for anything better, and the icing on the cake was the live music!

Amazing time! Captain Linda had to change our course due to poor weather on Lanai and made sure we still had an amazing trip! She also made a killer drink (drank the one named for her!)- the whole crew was awesome. We saw a ton of turtles and caught a pod of dolphins on our boat ride out. Would go again and recommend this company to anyone coming to Maui!

We took the Sunset Cruise on our last night in Maui. It was beautiful, we saw at least 10 whales along the way. The crew couldn’t have been nicer, very friendly and attentive to our needs. The appetizers were great, sliders, wings and brussel sprouts. I would absolutely recommend this cruise!

Never write reviews, but had to this time.
Went on the snorkel/whale watching with Captain Linda a her crew.
What a great experience. Captain and crew were knowledgeable, attentive, and lots of fun.
I did not go snorkeling (you know-old man and all), but I did open the bar.
Anyway, the trip was truly memorable. We were lucky enough to see many whales, one group tussling for the female. Then the unexpected happened. We were ‘mugged’. For you land lubbers like me that means a whale came right up to the boat. I mean if I had 4 foot arms I could have stroked it’s head.
But the whale did not just do it once, but went from Port to Starboard over and over again. This lasted about 10 minutes, yes 10 minutes is a long time, right at the edge of the boat, head out of water and curiously looking at you.
This is an experience that is hard to put into words.
Without the ‘mugging’ it would still have been a truly memorable experience. Definitely a must do if you’re here
Thanks Captain Linda and crew.

So glad you were able to open the bar for us on this trip! That is a very important job that we take seriously here on Sea Maui so thank you for doing so and getting the mood set right for an amazing whale MUGGING!! We are so stoked on the encounters that we have been lucky enough to have recently!! Being mugged by a creature as large as these humpback whales is an incredible and memorable experience for all and we are so stoked that you were able to do so with us here on Sea Maui! Mahalo for taking the time to write about your experience with Captain Linda and the Sea Maui cruise! We truly appreciate you praise! Aloha 🤙

This was my husband and children’s first experience with snorkeling and boating in the ocean. We had a blast!! The staff made you feel comfortable right from the check in at the kiosk! Z- was great and the crew were professional and went above and beyond to make your experience safe, fun and relaxing. The food and drinks was delicious, too! If we could give more than 5 stars, we would! Book your snorkeling excursion with them and you won’t regret it!
