Owner description: Suzzy Robinson "The Snorkel Whisperer" brings over 30 years experience of scuba diving and snorkeling off Maui waters to each and every snorkel tour. These days it's all about numbers/business/bottom line. Not with Suzzy - Suzzy has held true to her baseline of quality not quantity which is almost extinct. Snorkeling off the shoreline in a small group of 2-7 persons allows you the VERY BEST Maui waters have to offer. It is a discovery snorkel tour for all ages and sill levels. Shallow water sites No experience necessary Patient Instruction Small Groups Top of the line snorkel equipment provided All ages With this unique tour you won't be exposing yourself to large boats with herds of people, rough seas, contained snorkel area, deep waters, and limited reef and fishes to see. Suzzy's passion for life, ocean and Maui are what you can expect. You too will walk away from your snorkel tour with a thrilling Peak Life Experience that will last forever.

“So worth it!!!”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

Our family of four went out with Jeffrey during our spring break and were so glad we did. We are so glad we chose this company over taking a boat and being dropped into the ocean for a quick snorkel somewhere. With Jeffrey we drove to a spot, he took the time to educate us on what we would see and then gave us wet suits and snorkels (with eye correction lenses if needed) that fit us perfectly and then got us comfortable in the water before taking us out farther than we ever would have gone on our own. The mom in our group is not a great swimmer and Jeffrey patiently helped her out by leading her out on a board and waiting until she got comfortable with the whole breathing under water thing. Without Jeffrey, she surely would have missed out on this fantastic experience. We ended up being out in the water for almost an hour and a half!! After we came in we were treated to the most delicious pineapple ever and home baked cookies and treats. Do this - it is worth the money!!!! We have an underwater camera and the pictures from this excursion are amazing.

“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

My husband, two teenage daughters and I went out with Jeffery for a fantastic morning of snorkeling. Jefferey was an outstanding guide. We saw and learned so much. We would never have found this spot on our own. We snorkeled with green sea turtles! We were all thrilled. If we are lucky enough to return to Maui we will do another tour with Maui Snorkel Tours.

“absolutly best to do”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

we were taken to a beach. NO Boats to get sick on !!!! We were taught coral,fish and turtle information. Fit for snorkel equipment which was supplied along with a wet suit. Taken into the water to put on our fins and snorkels and took time to make us feel comfortable with the equipment on and breathing in chest level water. Suzzy waited until all felt comfortable then proceeded to take us out to see the ocean. It was so B E A U T I F UL to see all the life in the ocean and even know some of it because Suzzy taught us what to look for. We saw the Turtle cleaning station. That is where the smaller fish clean all the bumps off the turtles. After the swim, Suzzy gave us a lite snack and bottled water; which we definitely needed after the work out in the ocean. A MUST for the non-swimmers who want to experience the beauty of the ocean.

“Would do it again in a heartbeat!”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

We went to Maui for my parent's anniversary. Snorkeling was on the top of my to-do list but neither of my parents had any swimming/ snorkeling experience. We did a private tour with Maui Snorkel Tours and Suzzy Robinson and it was definitely the best decision we had made.

Suzzy had everything planned out for us. She called us the evening before and informed us of the spot she had picked out for us based on the weather conditions and all the other factors. Once we got to the location she gave us detailed step by step instructions starting from the basics. Then we went through some books learning about all the different kinds of tropical fish and coral we were about to encounter. Believe me, this definitely enriched our experience. Otherwise, as I told Suzzy later on, they would have been all just fish with different colors. However, with the information we had we were able to distinguish between the different kinds like butterfly, wrasse etc. and also identify the patterns that are unique to each fish. Then into the water we went. Suzzy lets us get accustomed to using the equipment first so that we were comfortable before going deeper. My mom was finding it a little difficult initially but Suzzy was very patient with her and as she put it, let my mom find her groove. As we went deeper and deeper, she pointed out all the fish with the names we had learnt before and she also made sure from time to time that we were all feeling okay. We encountered all the fishes that we had talked about earlier, had some close encounters with the turtles in their 'cleaning station' and saw some wonderful coral.

Overall, it was a great and an unbelievable experience. My parents were ecstatic with what they had accomplished with no swimming experience whatsoever and that was all thanks to Suzzy. In my opinion, snorkeling in Maui is something everyone should do and no one does it better than Suzzy. She knows all the best spots and gives you that personalized attention which makes you feel right at home. This experience was the highlight of our trip and one that my parents will definitely remember for the rest of their lives. Thanks Suzzy.

“Would highly recommend it”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

Loved the snorkelling with suzzy. It started with an introduction to snorkeling which helps if you are new to it. Then an intro to the aquatic life in the areA. The snorkelling was absolutely amazing and she did a great job pointing things out while we were in the water. Very laid back and small group of only 7 people. Would highly recommend.
