We did the sunset dinner cruise and it was absolutely amazing. The service was great, the food was delicious, and the views were spectacular. Very romantic evening for our honeymoon. Would definitely sail with Alii Nui Sailimg again!

Although this was expensive, it is a very professional operation. The amenities on the boat are first-rate, with great food, great staff, and amazing attention to detail. They leave enough time for reasonably long stops at two locations (Molokini and Maui north of Maalaea). The...More

We cannot recommend this boat and their crew high enough! They are not the cheapest charter cruises in Maui but there is a reason why they are consistently rated #1! We would go with them again in a heart-beat! Our first trip was their Halloween...More

Aloha aleighcole, We generally spend at least an hour at each snorkel location. The flow of the day does depend on the guests on board. If everyone is ready to go, we may head out earlier, or vice versa. Mahalo!
