This was an amazing experience. We did the morning snorkel charter and had such a great time. The crew was absolutely fantastic! They were the perfect combination of professional and fun/energetic. The food portions and quality were great! The alcohol/drinks were delicious. We felt very safe and well cared for. Thanks again!!

We spent this morning with the amazing crew on the Alii Nui! We did a one stop snorkel trip to the Crater — my daughter and husband did the Huka (a mix of snorkel and scuba) while my older daughter and I snorkeled. We saw an eel and lots of amazing fish. The staff was incredible when my daughter was anxious, and all were just all around helpful and informative and fun! We’re so glad we went!

This is a top adventure experience you must do when on Maui. The Alli Nui and her staff are professional, helpful for the inexperienced snorkelers, and make the day so enjoyable. The boat is not crowded and starts off your day with a full breakfast, then snacks during the late morning, and a wonderful lunch while sailing back. The boat is stocked with all the equipment you will need and the staff have safety watchers while you swim. They even have Rx prescription masks for your vision problems. You will be snorkeling in one of the worlds greatest places, Molokini Crater, then off to Turtle Arches if you purchase the Deluxe Snorkel which I highly recommend. DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS GREAT EXPERIENCE!

Ship, captain, crew, and food were all excellent! While the snorkeling from shore is actually better, it was still a neat experience to go to the crater. I would highly recommend this charter.

When I first saw the pictures of a catamaran for a sunset dinner cruise I was expecting a nice cruise but the dinner being so so. I've been on many a dinner cruise and generally the better ones are larger white tablecloth type ships. Second concern was this are is quite windy so I'm thinking possible a little rough to relax and eat with stuff blowing all over. Well this was a huge and pleasant surprise. This was just a beautiful cruise. Sails came up (fun to watch the crew get that all together) and we cut right through the waves while they totally attended to their customers. Excellent drinks with top shelf liquors and wines not to mention they mixed up cocktails as good or better then any landside bartender. Then came dinner while we tied up in a cover to watch the sunset. Excellent assortment of entrees and sides from Ahi tuna to prime rib. Never ran short of anything and didn't have to wait for long lines to clear to get seconds. Crew did an outstanding job from the pineapple greeting to the after dinner Baileys. Unfortunately this was our last night in Maui or we would have done it again. Next trip for sure.
