The crew was great, the boat was awesome, the food and drinks were unexpected, the whales took the show though. Spoiled for all future whale watching trips. Literally may never top this one!

We have been coming to Maui for many many years and have been on the water here multiple times. The Alii Nui is by far the nicest, cleanest and most well appointed excursion boat we have ever boarded on Maui. We took the cocktail - sunset cruise. At $150 per person it was twice as much as what we paid... More

They picked us up on time at our resort and from that point on the staff and the Catamaran was outstanding. They were very kind and welcoming. There was food and snacks throughout the day. The Catamaran was clean and organized and thanks to the captain the ride was comfortable the views were amazing. This was the best experience we... More

Captain Morgan and his crew did an amazing job of creating the prefect day! True, the weather cooperated so the water was calm like glass, but I am going to give your team credit for that part as well as I'm sure one of them made "special arrangements" with the powers in charge. The service was impeccable beginning at check-in... More

We had the pleasure of eating the Royal Feast Dinner while sailing on Ali'i Nui on our last evening in Maui. We sailed with 7 family members and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience from start to finish. We were greeted with fresh pineapple and from there the evening began. We sailed out of the blustery bay to find out it... More

What a lovely crew and boat! We had such fun from start to finish. We were collected promptly from our hotel first thing in the morning and had a 30 minute drive to the harbour. After double checking our consent forms, we were welcomed aboard. Our shoes were stored in boxes and for the duration of the trip, we were... More

I have snorkeled all over the Caribbean but I have never seen so many fish and it was amazing! The staff and entire experience on the Alii Nui was wonderful. The food was abundant and great! They even had towels. That's a first for me! Many of my friends did not swim or snorkel. The staff went out of their... More

This katamaran snorkeling experience was everything I expected and more. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the boat harbor. From then on our hosts were around us like bees on honey taking care of our needs for 6 full hours. Our hosts were very energetic and knowledgeable which made us feel confident while snorkeling. The food... More

We did the one-stop snorkeling trip (offered Mondays only). We research this company prior to booking online. It had excellent reviews and our experience was equally amazing. They offer transportation from your resort to the harbor and then back. The person who picked us up (Nikita) was very punctual and friendly. She was also part of the crew. All crew... More
