The crew was great. Knowledgeable with safety in mind and very friendly. Molokini snorkeling was good. Saw turtles at turtle town. Food was good. Great deckhands and captain. Highly recommend!

We booked this on pretty short notice through Snorkel Bob’s in Kaanapali. We were very pleasantly surprised at the experience, as the boat takes a significantly smaller group of passengers, when compared to some of the other floating “cattle barges” out there! The crew was...More

I was initially a little apprehensive about booking our trip on the Lani Kai because of the lower price and smaller advertising of some of the bigger boats, but my apprehension was soon relieved after boarding the boat. The captain and crew (I wish I...More

The crew were all friendly and helpful, and for people who did the "Snuba" option, informative. Molokini is a popular destination for snorkeling so there are other people on other boats in the relatively small area. However, there were enough fish for everyone to see...More
