We took he "Best day on Maui" tour which is 6hrs long - longest snorkel tour on Maui. The crew with Capt CJ were knowledgeable and friendly. They made our trip very fun! The time spent snorkeling is about 2-3 hours, but the water is cold so I don't think anyone could stand it much longer than that. We had... More

Wow wow wow!!!! What an enjoyable morning and afternoon spent aboard Leilani. Skipper CJ is just the right amount of laid back, affable & comedic; as my 16-year-old step-daughter said he is, "Super cool." The crew made a delicious BBQ meal, worked diligently to tend to our beverage and snorkeling needs and, even, entertained my two-year-old while everyone else snorkeled,... More

This was our 2nd trip to Molokini with this company, and this time we brought additional family members. We spent a lot of time trying to find the best deal, and eventually decided to stick with the boat we enjoyed so much on our first trip to Maui 3 years ago. So happy we made that decision - we absolutely... More

This was by far the highlight of our stay on Maui. We opted for the Best Day on Maui because it was slightly longer than any others (6hrs), providing us with more time to spot wildlife, 2 snorkelling stops, and small size. It didn't disappoint on any of those. It took us a few minutes to figure out where we... More

About 8 years ago I charter the Pride of Maui for scratting of my brother & sister in laws ashes. The crew was totally amazing then. I will be in Maui next week and wanted to revisit the area where ashes were scratted. The only cruise they have will be snorking. I don't do water sports. I was informed by... More

The good - "Best Day on Maui" is an accurate description! This was a fantastic trip! We were served a continental breakfast after we boarded, then headed for our first snorkeling spot at Molokini crater. We saw several whales along the way, and the captain and crew provided great information about them. Molokini was great - lots of fish -... More

Been on several tours either bad luck or I expected more from the trip than advertise, they all seem to be concentrating on how much booze they can sell you rather than Why you took the trip. Do your research on your boat trip company ask a lot of questions on what you want and what they will deliver. I... More

We had a great time today on the Leilani with Capt. CJ, Megan and Josh! Started the morning with multiple sitings of humpback whales - including one that swam under our boat and posed for close-up shots when he surfaced right next to us! Good continental breakfast on our trip out to Molokini, where the snorkeling was great! Then on... More

We did in 2011.I just did a little snorkeling, I do not dive....the explanations are ok...I expected a little more, but htheu were fine, The sea was brave that day! The tour is nice, expected less people...but Kihei is really crowded....think twice before staying there if you´re not a crowd fan, but the tour is great.
